Declutter Your Mind, Body and Home
Clutter is something that most people live with on a day-to-day basis. Working long hours or managing children and a social life makes it difficult to dedicate time to your home. However, clutter is proven to have a huge effect on our anxiety levels and mental wellbeing.
Here are some quick, easy tips for decluttering your home:
- Have a limit
Start your decluttering project in small chunks. You can usually find a 20-minute window in your day, so take 20 minutes to tidy a specific area every few days until you’re happy with it.
Once you start decluttering, you’ll probably have some things for the charity shop. Ask the rest of your household whether they have items to donate, too.
- Set a goal
Remind yourself why you’re decluttering in the first place. Having a goal will keep you focused throughout the project and encourage you if you start to feel a little lost.
When you start to declutter physical things, your mindset will shift towards an attitude of “what is important to me?”. This attitude can be applied to your “inner clutter” as well. Only keep items that bring you happiness or are practical.
