Marla Cilley Helps You Declutter to Restore Your Confidence

When I look back over the hundreds of interviews I did for the WISH Summits and other online courses, one of the people who left the best impression on me was Marla Cilley, also known as "The Fly Lady," from her website dedicated to helping women get control of their personal environments and loving themselves more in the process.

I had always been aware of the connection between how a person maintains control in their environment, and how they feel in their head/mind. But trying to shove productivity tips down the throat of the "already overwhelmed" isn't much good. Marla masters "baby steps" and is the perfect voice you need whispering in your ear to remind you that you're doing ok, and one step at a time is still moving forward.

Marla spent a lot of time talking and getting to know me before we did our call, and she was incredibly generous with her time and attention. She insists that she does what she does because she just wants to help, and it comes through in everything she does and in how she connects with others. I hope you really enjoy this call and connect with Marla and her great work on her website here.

About Marla Cilley

Marla Cilley is The FlyLady. She does not fly a plane! To keep a long story short, Marla loves to teach people to flyfish. That is how she got the name — FlyLady. Marla is a SHE (Sidetracked Home Executive). This system saved her life and continues to bless her. When Marla found the www.SHEsintouch.com website years ago, she needed a user name for the forums. Everyone was trying to help her come up with one. When they found out that she loved to flyfish and she taught it at a local college, they came up with “FlyLady.” It is because of Marla’s SHEness that she can now teach others. On December 7, 1999, someone asked Marla for help, and the FlyLady mentoring group began. This group has always been her gift to whoever joined. All Marla ever wanted to do was help people.

And now, the name, FlyLady, has come to mean so much more. One of her members came up with a great acronym for it: Finally Loving Yourself (FLY) – this is the gift that FlyLady wants you to receive. It was only after Marla learned out how to “FLY” that she was able to become the person of her dreams. She has three rules that she lives by:

Don’t sweat the small stuff; what doesn’t matter, doesn’t matter. Laugh everyday. Even if it is at yourself. Love like there is no tomorrow. You can learn more about Marla and her work here.

Episode 18: Flylady Marla Cilley on Finally Loving Yourself

Read more

Marla Cilley, founder of Flylady.net, is a true inspiration. I found her site over ten years ago, as I was going through a divorce and knew I needed to find a way to take care of myself and my home.  I had started the search, thinking that I simply needed to find ways to clean and declutter, and to get my life back on track. What I found was Marla's loving wisdom, her "Flying lessons," her support, a lot of humor, a fun community, and a renewed sense of who I was. For this, I'm grateful.

I'm so honored to have Marla as a guest for today's episode as part of the "Loving your 2016" series. It was a true joy to speak with her, and to spend time soaking up her love and joy-filled philosophy. If you are feeling overwhelmed by the state of your home, or you've made organizing your life a priority for this year, I encourage you to listen, and to visit Flylady.net for more resources. She offers all of this for free - and you are in for such a treat.

In this episode, we talk about: - how Marla arrived at her current zone cleaning process, including the overwhelming amount of cards and lists that she started with, trying to "perfect" an organization process - shining your sink, what it is, and how that changed Marla's life - that two resolutions that started everything - Marla's take on the word perfect (and how she corrects me when I use it!) - the food addiction, and why foods evoke memories and provide an endorphin rush. (along with why Mac n Cheese was Marla's go to food when she got stressed, and why I run for peanut butter and chocolate). - an easier way to clean your bathtub - a great way to keep bathtub toys stored, and Flylady's first viral post on facebook - making cleaning fun - why having a wall calendar is important for organization and teaching our children - why Marla calls "jobs" or chores "blessings" - why it's important to release things that don't bring you joy - the power and importance of complimenting other people

Flylady.net - Marla's website Marla is the author of "Body Clutter," and "Sink Reflections," both are best sellers, and  I can not recommend them highly enough. Sink Reflections - Marla's first book (on Amazon) Body Clutter - Marla's second book (on Amazon) Eric Dodge, Why Not Today (on Amazon) Pam Young and Peggy Jones card file system (Side Tracked Home Executives) on Amazon

Marla Cilley Interview: The FlyLady Helped Our Home and Will Help Yours Too!

Read more
Have you ever been in that place? You know, you come home from work… the house is a mess… you don’t want to be there… you’re yelling at the kids… you’re yelling at your spouse because your environment is a mess but it’s like your inside is a mess and your emotions are a mess too. Nobody likes to live like that.

Not only that – it’s not good for you either. That’s why we interviewed Marla Cilley, a housekeeping guru commonly known as FlyLady, for some tips on how to get out of this chaos.
You'll definitely want to listen to this interview from start to finish!

First, though, I was curious if there was any scientific research surrounding stress levels and home environments. It turns out there is. Wives who described their homes as more restorative (meaning they enjoyed their home environment) had lower stress levels and less depressed mood across the day.

Conversely, wives who described their homes as more stressful had indicators (a flatter slope of diurnal cortisol) of chronic stress. Those indicators are typically associated with adverse health outcomes.

Apparently, husbands are not affected so much by the home environment, as there was really a null result for them. The conclusion is that wives feel more responsibility for the home environment.[i]

The same researcher found an association between wive’s marital satisfaction and the flatter slop of diurnal cortisol. We all know that correlation doesn’t imply causation, but we think it is reasonable to conclude that if you find your home environment stressful, particularly as a wife, you’ll likely to have decreased marital satisfaction. The converse is true as well.[ii]

So, I think it is safe to say that taking care of your home is another way of taking care of your marriage. We are not asking wives to do this, but we want both of you to take this seriously and figure out how to divide up the responsibilities.

Not only does the research show that home environments affect the diurnal cortisol which impacts marital satisfaction, but the same theme carries over to parenting. Findings show that maladaptive parenting styles and child emotionality both increase in cluttered homes. The researchers saw this as being mediated by maternal tenseness.[iii]

The case we’re making here is that creating a home environment that is peaceful and has some sense of serenity and calm is a blessing to your marriage and your family.

That’s why we interviewed FlyLady – to ask her how to help young couples get their homes organized and kept tidy.

She gave us some awesome information including:

Where to start – especially if you’ve got a company
A different focus for each month of the year
How to build a routine
How to get rid of your perfectionism
How to break your home into zones so it’s not so overwhelming
How to create that relaxing environment you want to come home to
How to save money in the kitchen.
