One way to increase positive thinking is to immerse yourself in positive surroundings.That doesn't mean you have to pack up and move to Malibu it can very well mean doing small things. For instance, opening the curtains when it's sunny or putting on relaxing music. In order to best immerse myself with uplifting surroundings, I decided to De-clutter. For me having a clean home is like having a clean slate - a pristine canvas ready for creative explosion. Anyways, I’ve spent the last few days sorting through papers and doing basic organizing. I reorganize about once a month, so it only takes a day or so. I would encourage you to put aside a weekend to organize, make sure you give yourself enough time to be thorough.
