"I feel overwhelmed."

Maybe each day feels like you are jumping into the deep end. You try your best to float, but you feel underwater from all the turbulence.

Life is crazy messy, right? This is how it should be.

While we can’t control what comes at us every day, we can control how we process the information and the actions we decide to take.

Feelings of overwhelm, fear, shame and blame can easily hinder our decision-making process and keep us from making insightful choices. When we take valuable actions for ourselves and those around us, we end up feeling less friction and opening up opportunities in the future.

The ease of moving from one action to another is what I call flow.

This is different than KonMari-ing your way through your home, purging things that don’t give you joy and folding everything just right. Sure, you can do that, but then what? How do you enjoy and create inner peace in your day-to-day?

Would you like to invite flow into your life?

Let's dive deeper.

Creating flows that work for you.

I have to admit, I love to organize and create processes, but I also believe anyone can introduce these into their lives without keeping a label-maker in their back pocket.

How many organizational sites have you visited only to feel defeated? While the pretty pictures attract me too, I also don't like the way they leave me feeling about my life. Perfection feels unnatural and forced. This is why I don't promote perfectly aligned cereal containers or alphabetized soup cans. I would rather focus on you as a human, your daily choreography of tasks, and how we can smooth things out to give you more peace of mind.

Here are just some ideas we can work on together:

  • Morning Routines
  • Preparation
  • Special Needs Strategies
  • Errands & Shopping
  • Meal Planning
  • Family Involvement
  • Using What You Have
  • Social Media & Screen Use
  • Work/Life Transitions
  • Task Management
  • Imperfect Goals
  • Scheduling
  • Preventative Care
  • Travel

  • Systems Design

    From the first phone call we create a personalized analogy to visualize your intention. Then we start small, celebrate wins, and advance to bigger goals. Usually this can take several sessions but I suggest a minimum of three to create a foundation. Depending on the person, this can take more or less time.

    The most beneficial schedule I recommend is twice a week for three weeks, which would be six sessions. You can schedule the times for whatever works for you and buy one-offs as needed.

    About Me

    Hi! I'm Kaytlyn, your Systems Designer and accountability partner here at Beneficial Habits. It's a pleasure to meet you!

    I started my online experience in college in 1997 when I coded my first web page. I loved combining my love of photography with this new medium called "the web." I was fascinated with how people can be influenced through a screen and be encouraged to take action by purchasing or participation.

    After graduating with a degree in Web Design and Interactive Media, I worked in a user interaction and management capacity for a variety of companies, from tech startups to print and photography studios. Since launching my own business in 2005, I’ve worked with hundreds of clients, including award-winning bloggers, event producers, artists, retailers, authors and wellness providers. When they were ready to grow their audience from hundreds of readers to hundreds of thousands of them, they found me. It's been an honor to work with them all.

    Expanding my education from UX (user experience) design to digital behavior was natural as I took deep dives in conferences, classes and research concerning the psychology and ethics of online platforms. I started consulting my clients on the pros and cons of social media, the measurement of users vs. time usage, algorithms and bias, and how to determine if you are using it all too much. Witnessing the lines blur between real life and screens is equally scary and amazing.

    My strengths as a mom of a special needs son swirl around designing systems that are easy for him to understand and achieve, providing easy wins and momentum. My design and project management background also lends to always be curious about how systems can be improved. Nothing is ever perfect, but because of the fluidity of technology and life, the strategies we depend on also need to bend and adapt over time.

    Complexity and assumptions don’t serve us. However, listening, compassion and simplicity do. My father – who was a psychologist and woodworker – taught me how to check my numbers twice, take time to sand out the sharp edges, and value quality over quantity. I find those concepts easy to live by.

    I feel that although we can be heavily influenced into unhealthy habits, we can still remain in control. Our screens can increase productivity, but we also need incorporate rest and play. We have the power to design our own goals with technology and iterate until it flows with our lifestyles in mind.

    Currently I am consulting clients on how to achieve more flow every day. I also help business owners create onboarding systems and provide professional audits to keep everything streamlined.

    Looking forward to hearing from you,

    Droplets from happy clients.

    "You work hard to infuse the clients ideas and not your own."
    —Jennifer

    "That you are personable, easy to converse with, and have a way of interpreting and understanding what it is that they are trying to say. You're like a mind reader."
    —Cynthia

    "She asks just the right questions to help understand your mission, but these questions also help organize your own thoughts and ideas. You'll leave the consultation feeling inspired and motivated.
    —Kristin

    "You are extremely patient, and very creative, and able to execute your idea in the most organized ways.
    —Shaunie

    "I appreciate your timely replies, emails and sense of caring. I feel you put a lot of time and energy into me as a client. But, I'm also someone that likes people I know I can count on, which is super important and I feel I do with you."
    —New Client

    "My biggest learning experience was my own growth and figuring out the direction I was going to take. You helped get that out of me, guide me in the right direction. I also trusted you (which I don't with many) that I could run things by you or where I was going, you gave me your honest opinion. You get me and my creative vision — it's been a great business collaboration."
    —Susan

    "I always tell my clients and friends how intuitive and easy you are to work with. While working together, there's always a point where I can almost hear the "click!" when all of the questions and ideas snap together in a way that I might not have considered before. During the process, I've always felt that my input was truly heard with all of my feelings considered. That's a big deal for creatives and since you are one, that familiarity shines through!"
    —Marlo

    At this time yes. Although I open up in-person sessions in the North Seattle area in the future. Email me if you are interested.
