6:45 am
that in this month's "essence" magazine. it is called "let it go: refresh your mind and space just in time for the new year." sharia k. jackson is the relationship and lifestyle editor for "essence." thanks for joining us. >> thanks for having us. >> this was a really helpful article to me as i headed to work and had my daughter shredding some b ls for me. this is about decluttering your home. >> absolutely. >> so let's start with checking your emotions first. can you give us detail? >> the reason we hold on to so much physical stuff is all the emotional attachments we have to things. oh, my high school boyfriend gave me this letter or shirt. i hope to get back into that dress i wore to my cousin's wedding. we add so much meaning to physical things. to create space for new things in your life, new opportunities and abundance, you have to release some things from your past. keep the memory, keep the sentiment, and let go of the physical stuff. not only is that stuff you're not actually using, it's
6:46 am
see what you do have. how many times have you come home with shoes. you have a similar pair already in the closet, but because you have so much stuff, you don't even know that. really to join more of what you do have and create space for more. >> and get support. >> so important. we want you to have a purge partner. because you have all this emotional attachment -- >> a purge partner? >> yes. this weekend, we go to your house. then you come over to my house. that person will help you stay accountable. when you start to want to go back through the bag of stuff you've already thrown out, it's like, no, we'll stay focused. also, that's the person who will be with you to take the stuff out. a lot of times if we keep that bag of clothes there, there's a strong chance you might go back. as soon as you purge and pack it, get it out of the there. >> can i get a witness? you also talked about digitizing old letters or memorabilia by taking photos of hem and then creating a file in drop box. that's an interesting idea. >> such technological age. a lot of our decluttering is digital.
6:47 am
start is your e-mail. really using folders, really using unrollme.com, where you can unenroll from all those newsletters. you definitely can use a lot of online sources. drop box is free. scan things and keep it. you can also use a service that will scan your bills. we want you to live lighter. >> take your time. don't do everything at once kinds of pace it out a little bit. and delegate someone to watch your kids while you're doing this. >> yes. >> i actually got my child involved with this. >> that's a good habit. and i you have a child who's old enough to be involved, i think that's probably more so for the smaller kids who might get in your way. but that's absolutely a great idea. it's also a model for her so she'll grow up in a space where she's already thinking that way. we're not keeping so much physical stuff, but we're living lighter.
6:48 am
and then the other item is purge your paper piles. this is involving another app as well, file this. all your bill statements in one place. >> we want you to feel organized and lighter. you're so bogged down with these physical things, you might miss the great letter because you have so much stuff out. so we live in such a stuff society. i love file this for that reason. you can have -- not only does it do bills, but say you start your new business. you can scan receipts and have invoices in one place. it's great for having a clean home. >> so many apps out there. i can't even keep track at all. live light online. so we have been spending all this time talking about decluttering your home. but you need to also declutter online. your e-mail inbox. >> yes. it's so important because like you said, we spend so much time on our computers. we feel so bogged down. it's so important you start to use your folders, that you unsubscribe. >> what's a folder? >> folders are great -- >> i'm just kidding.
6:49 am
e-mail from this person, it's a way for you to have things. so when you're in your inbox, you're not overwhelmed. if you get an e-mail from an old flame or a new job opportunity, yo don't miss it in all the clutter. >> and maybe just delete right away. >> yes, delete. >> and then the last point of all this decluttering, maintain the clean high. you sort of alluded to this at the beginning of our conversation. use the one in, one out rule. can you talk more about that? >> absolutely. it's one of my favorite rules. imagine we spend these weekends, have our purge party, and you spend so much time working to live lighter. a month later, you feel back in the same spot. in order for you to hold on to that clean high, that feeling of accomplishment you feel -- because you pay 100% of your rent every month, but you might only be using 60% of your space if you have all this stuff sitting around. now that you're back to 100%, you want to hold on to that. the one in, one out rule says if i buy a new pair of shoes, what pair of shoes am i willing to release?
6:50 am
go a negative thing, but it's positive. you might donate those shoes to someone who doesn't have shoes, versus things you might never wear, things you might never use. you sort of put that back into the universe for you to get new things for yourself. >> that's especially here in new york city where apartments are so tiny and we can't fit all the stuff anyway. >> and you go to a woman's apartment and she's got sweaters in the stove. you definitely want to make use of your space. >> i don't want to save such little time for this, but at the bottom of the article, you spoke to or at least highlighted another book peopling learn from. it's called "save your sanity." define your happy place, make a list, strike it twice, mind your messages, budget your time. base ically just talking about taking it back. >> right.
6:51 am
my favorite tips here is the unfold -- unfold low button. sometimes you don't want to unfriend someone, but you don't want to see that negativity. you really want to find, what's bringing me down, and how do i release the emotional weight. >> my favorite part was not overbooking yourself. only spending time with people who are going to bring positive energy to your life. instead of three appointments a week, maybe three appointments with great friends a month. >> it's a great experience. and you're not so draining. >> we've run out of time. thank you so much. happy new year to you. >> thank you. >> sharia jackson from "essence." we'll be right back with more of

6:54 am
>> i did a full factory reset. he still somehow accessed my pass words and information. >> even if you think you've fully erased a piece of information from a phone or device, sometimes small pieces or remnants can be left behind. >> reporter: according to this i.t. professor, it's possible password information was left behind, which allowed the buyer to take control of tommy's devices. >> technology that makes it easier for us to access it could make it easier for someone else as well. >> reporter: cloud hacking has made headlines in the past as celebrities were reportedly hacked and personal photos were leaked. apple did eventually help tommy unlock his phone and laptop, but they said he forgot one very important thing. before wiping your phone, you have to log out of your icloud account. another step you can take, wipe your phone once, then download another app or picture and wipe it again. >> it's going to make it progressively harder and harder as you continue to bury the original data under increasing

7:17 am

we're just two days into the new year. if you already started to wonder how you're going to keep your resolution, we have some help for you. some thipm to stay on track in 2016. welcome and happy new year. >> same to you and your family. >> thank you so much for coming in so nice and early on the new year weekend. i know a lot of people who already said, got to start over on monday. your suggestions for keeping on track, a lot of us, we make resolutions that are really kind of far reaching, don't we? >> we do. that's the problem. 87% of us do not keep our new year's resolutions. 16% of us, they don't do it at all. you know, why bother? we're looking at the new year, and we're looking at new year's day and why is it when we're hungover from the night before -- come on, pat, let's look at this for real. >> keep it real, doc.
8:10 am
i never understood it. that's the day we have to be accountable for the rest of the year? maybe that's why the 87% just don't click. >> that's a good point. >> and the other thing is also, when you are getting drunk or a little high, which is great to have a buzz, be careful who you're getting that buzz with. get ready for this one. >> uh-oh. >> make sure it's not bill cosby. sorry. you can take me off the air for that. >> oh, dear. >> i'm too much out there. so go ahead, pat. >> let's talk about when we do make a realistic resolution. i started making mine like the week before. what do i want to do differently this year? just thinking about it and talking about it. your advice is not to write it down but just to make it a part of your being. how do you do that? >> absolutely. we think we need to be motivated, but really, we need to just do it. go out there and do it. then the feelings will come. it's the opposite of what you really think. so you're absolutely right.
8:11 am
don't say, when is it the best time? when are we most relaxed? when is every problem out of the way? because that never happens. you just have to go with the flow. >> go with the flow. and you know, my latest resolution, i like to tell people what i'm doing so people can try to keep me on track. sometimes, like i'm sharing a resolution now with a friend of mine. we're trying to cleanse for a couple weeks. we're doing it together. you don't think that's always a good idea? uh-oh, she put that finger on the chin. >> i'll tell you the truth. doing it together means there are raised expectations. then you feel that someone is watching you. only do it when it's you doing it for yourself. not because you have to or you're supposed to. just do it because you want to. isn't that great? when you do something you really enjoy and you're out there and it's your moment in time, that's the best what ay to get it in for yourself. >> excellent point. very true.
8:12 am
and don't beat yourself up if you don't. we hear that every year. once you start beating yourself up, you just say, oh, well, what's the point. >> the number one new year's resolution is being healthy. number two is weight control and exercise. people join the gym. then a couple months later in march, forget about it. it's empty again. so the bes thing to do, really, is to structure your time, which means that you're getting up at 9:00, if you're lucky enough to get up that late. not in this studio. then you're at the gym at 9:15, finished at 10:00. by all means, if you want to leave earlier, just do so. if you force yourself to do something, you know what really enz ends up happening? you don't do it again. because the moments need to be pleasurable. that's why so many people stop going to the gym. >> and you really have to embrace the sense of accomplishment when you do, do
8:13 am
>> not for anybody but yourself. >> all right. doctor, thank you so much. >> oh, my pleasure. this was fun. >> it was beyond fun. thank you so much. >> one quick thing to say. >> what? >> just want your viewers to know that if you look back at the year that was, you'll always know that you did accomplish a lot whether you had a new year's resolution or not. so be good to yourself. pat yourself on the back and realize that you really have done more than you think you have done. the next year will do the same for you as well. thank you so much. >> thank you. point well taken, yes. embrace your accomplishments. thank you, doctor. you're delightful. good sense of humor too.
