Mail, Mail, Go Away!!

What’s your relationship with your postal carrier? Do you turn off the lights and pretend you’re not home in hopes he will just walk on by? Have you posted no trespassing signs, hoping to deter delivery of your mail? Probably not, but if you’re like a lot of people, mail is not on your list of favorites. Why do you suppose that is? For many, receiving mail has become a headache. It just seems to pile up without any end in sight. Of course that would be a true statement if your mail was an actual object with human properties and could perform the feats we’ve come to attribute to it, but alas, it is not. It’s inanimate. Mail cannot “pile up” or “creep in” or anything else. It’s our inability to deal with it effectively that’s the issue. Okay, here’s the solution. Deal with your mail as soon as it is delivered!! I know that’s a shocking revelation to some of you, but it is the best solution. Decide whether a piece of mail is to be kept (and acted upon), shredded, or filed. Take action so that you don’t have to hide in your house from your friendly mail carrier. After all, what did she ever do to you but deliver your mail? Don’t blame the messenger!!

About Me

My photo
Washington, DC, United States
I am Dr. Darnita L. Payden, Executive Director/Owner of Dr. DClutter™ Life Management, a division of PreciousOnes™ LLC. I have a Ph.D. in Counseling Psychology and over 20 years of experience working to help clients discover their strengths and talents. Having worked as a therapist, college professor, grief specialist and trainer, I have encountered in my journey many of the issues my clients may face. I have a sincere desire to help you find clarity, organization and independence in your life and environments. I know that life can be hectic, but I desire to help my clients bring as much order, peace and enjoyment back into their lives as is possible. What separates me from the norm? I focus on the client from a holistic perspective. I realize that most people desire a functional and an organized life, but may simply need support, understanding and information about why they have the habits or tendencies that have led to disorganization. I do not perform “quick fixes” or provide “one-size-fits-all” guidance, but I strive to provide strategies to my clients that will be life changing and useful for a lifetime. Dr. DClutter™ is a name well earned!!
