Creating an Organised Memory Box

When you come back from a holiday, where do you keep the receipts, hotel key, leaflets, maps, photos of the holiday? When it is your birthday where are the cards stored after you have finished showcasing them on your bookshelf? Most probably they are thrown into a pile in a cupboard or into an overflowing box. Today we discuss that box – your memory box – and how to make it more organised and memorable for you moving forward.

As good as it is to clear the physical clutter, I also delve deeper with the client during the session to help them discover their emotional clutter and also try and clear it as Read More
