Since this is Stress Awareness Month, I thought I’d tap into my great network of professional organizers and ask them to share what they know about the connection between stress and disorganization. With so many being away at the NAPO Conference last week, I was a bit concerned that I might not get many submissions to this month’s Blog Carnival, but I’m thrilled with the responses, and hope you will be too.

Here are the rest of this month’s posts:

Elaine ShannonWhy do you want to get organized?

Linda SamuelsFamily, Friends, Nature & Clutter

Janet BakerPaper Tiger Filing System in the Office Can Prevent Melt Downs and Disasters

There’s a wealth of wisdom here, so be sure to set aside some time to read all the posts, leave some comments, and get to know the bloggers! You’re sure to pick up some great advice, either for yourself or for your clients.

I recommend...

A former professional organizer, I now eliminate stress for my clients by hosting, monitoring, and maintaining their WordPress sites so they don’t have to worry about security, downtime or performance issues. When I’m away from my desk, I enjoy reading, photography, watching movies, and cooking.
