It’s election season again here in the US, and what does that mean? Political messages anywhere and everywhere – on your doorstep, in your mailbox, on the TV, on the radio, on billboards, on yard signs, on bumper stickers, and on your phone. In honor of this election season, I’ve decided to re-share with you an updated oldie but goodie article about eliminating political robocalls from your life, which was originally published on this blog September 10, 2012: The first time I received a political robocall several years ago I was absolutely irritated – like I wasn’t already bombarded enough by political propaganda. I was fed up, so I hopped on the internet, did a search and almost immediately discovered there IS indeed a free way to stop the harassment – The National Political Do Not Call Registry. In the fall of 2014, The National Political Do Not Call Registry combined forces with Nomorobo (No More Robo) – a free service that protects users from political robocalls – in addition to regular, run-of-the-mill robocallers, scammers, and telemarketers, and all robocalls can be blocked by using this one easy service. Here’s something to consider: politicians are exempt from the National Do Not Call Registry, but their robocalls are NOT exempt from Nomorobo. Since registering (just before the 2004 election), I am happy to report I have not received a single political robocall. To register your phone number, visit Nomorobo.com and sign up today (it’s free). Decluttering isn’t just about removing extra physical stuff, it’s … Continue reading
Most people have no idea just how much you do in a day. Between the demands of your job, taking care of your family, managing the house, and squeezing in a few minutes of social time if you’re lucky – it can feel like everyday is a marathon. What’s especially frustrating is when you work so hard and do so much and still don’t feel caught up at the end of the day. You feel trapped living at a warp-speed pace that creates a lot of guilt and worry over what you are missing out on. Things like spending quality time with your family and fully taking care of yourself. Or bigger projects that you would love to dive into – like writing that book, painting, or starting that new business – if only you could get caught up first. These thoughts create so much anxiety and overwhelm that you do the only logical thing you can think of: Work harder. Push more. Which makes sense. If you can just get caught up you could finally spend time on what you really enjoy. Here’s what I want you to know: this approach doesn’t work. Working harder and longer only creates more guilt, anxiety, and overwhelm. But there is a way out of this vicious cycle. There is a way to free yourself from these oppressive emotions, regain control, and feel confident in your ability to make progress everyday. It isn’t easy but it works. Shifting your approach to life just … Continue reading
