Local organizing expert hosts “Reclaim Your Work” event
If you want to take back your life, you are not alone. According to Fast Company Magazine, people waste one hour per day due to disorganization. The Wall Street Journal reports that it’s closer to 40 percent of our workday. National organizing expert, and Sherwood resident, Vicki Norris has an answer for this wasteful, chaotic – and often unfulfilling existence.
For nearly 17 years, Trevor and Vicki Norris have owned and operated their family business Restoring Order in Sherwood – a company that helps people get organized at home and at work. You might recognize Vicki from nearly two decades in the media – from HGTV’s “Mission: Organization” to regular spots on AM Northwest and a current twice-monthly segment as KPTV’s Fox 12 “More Good Day Oregon” organizing expert.
Throughout 2016 the Norrises are opening their family homestead and company headquarters Dream Acres – their farm in Sherwood – to host a series of quarterly events that will help attendees address whole-life restoration, with sessions geared to reclaim one’s household, work, health and spirit.
“Reclaim Your Work” is the topic of the April 30 “Life Reclaimist” event. Participants will learn to define their contribution to the world, how to order their work space and life, and principles of productivity and purpose.
The remaining Life Reclaimist events of 2016 will be held July 30 and Oct. 29.
Norris notes: “These unique events offer a community to those who are overwhelmed to reboot their whole life. We’re offering a setting for Life Reclaimists – those who want to get their life back from this chaotic world – to learn to repossess their households, work, health, and spirit. It’s a holistic life reclaiming opportunity.”
Each of the four hour events includes a luncheon and costs $199. A discount is offered to those signing up for all four quarterly events, and monthly payment options are offered. Those interested in the series can find out more and register at RestoringOrder.com or by calling Restoring Order at 503-625-5774.
