206: The Psychology of the Sunk Cost Fallacy: Why We Hold On and How to Let Go

A few months ago, I was talking with one of my new Inner Circle members. She said to me, "Katy, I joined your program because I can't keep living this way," and even though I knew I could help her, it broke my heart to hear that. 🥹 After beginning to work together, I quickly I realized the root of why she wasn't seeing progress wasn't a lack of willpower, lack of consistency or lack of strategy... NOPE. It was because (unbeknownst to her) she had a psychological bias called the "sunk cost fallacy" . Essentially, it's this idea that if you've already put resources (like time and money) into something, you should continue to invest in it (or KEEP it, in this case), even if you know it's not the best decision. This bias is known as the "sunk cost" fallacy because the resources you've invested are already gone, just like a ship that has sunk. And after taking my advice, which I also share with you too, in today's episode - her declutter progress skyrocketed. 🚀 I'm talking going from 0 to 100.  This is why I LOVE 1-1 coaching... Dialing into the roots AND providing people with tangible solutions they need to FINALLY get the results they deserve - there's nothing sweeter. If you, like her, are ready to dig deep, let go and create a home you love and that supports you, make sure to listen to today's episode and join me in my coaching program to get personalized support! https://www.katyjoywells.com/innercircle Cheering for you, xx Katy P.S.

203: The Spotlight Effect: How to Stop Being Self-Conscious About Your Home

The spotlight effect describes how people tend to believe that others are paying more attention to them than they actually are—in other words, our tendency to always feel like we are “in the spotlight.” This can cause midjudgment, social anxiety, fear, shame and lots of negative emotions, preventing us from ever inviting people into our homes. Tune in as I share a personal story around the spotlight effect and how I've liberated myself from being self-conscious and embarressed about my cluttered, messy and lived-in home. Enjoy!

191: Mental Health And Clutter: What's The Connection

You may not realize this depending on how long you've been a listener of the show, but my passion for helping other simplify wasn't born because I love to help people make their home look pretty and organized... it's because decluttering was the catalyst that turned my mental health around and helped put an end to 24/7 stress, anxiety and depression. While I don't think that clutter wasn't the *cause* of my mental health struggles, there certainly was a correlation which became more and more obvious the more stuff I got rid of. Now, several years later having helped thousands of students and hearing story after story about how their stress levels have improved, they feel happier, hopeful, have a more positive outlook, less depression and so much more... it only reinforces the idea that we are intricately connected to our environments... and when we change our environments, our thoughts, emotions and even actions can change, as a result. Today's episode, to kick-off the start of mental-health awareness month, I share some fascinating studies focused on just how clutter and mental health are connected. I hope you find it inspiring, encouraging and just the words you needed to hear today. xx Katy P.S. Know someone who's struggling like I was? Please forward them this episode.
