The benefits of a clutterfree life:
Letting go of the things and the thoughts that no longer serve us sets us free to move on with more order and space in our home and mind.
A clutterfree start is a better and easier start.
The beginning of a new phase in our life can be a great opportunity to give ourselves a general fresh start – creating more space, freedom and lightness in all areas of our life.
The start of a new year represents such a new beginning.
Other examples of new opportunities for a fresh start are:
- Ending a relationship, or starting a new relationship
- Renovating the house
- Moving to a new place
- Having a baby
- Starting a new job
- Entering retirement
- Becoming an empty nester
These and other new beginnings become easier if we don’t burden them with the stuff of the past. We don’t want to take along what might hold us back in the new stage of our life.
It can be a relief to deliberately decide what no longer serves us and let it go before we move on.
So how can we organise and manage the decluttering of our life successfully?
How can we clear up our home AND our mind?
The three main steps of any decluttering project
are always the same –whether we declutter and organise our home or our mind:
STEP 1 – WE CLEAN OUT OUR HOME/OUR MIND AND GAIN AWARENESS OF WHAT WE HAVE.
We take everything out, we sort and categorise it. What are the things – what are the thoughts and the feelings – that serve us, and what are the ones that burden/hurt us?
STEP 2 – WE LET GO OF THE CLUTTER IN OUR HOME/MIND BY MAKING TOUGH DECISIONS.
We honour our values, needs, and goals by deliberately letting go of the things – and the thoughts/feelings – we no longer need/love/want to use.
STEP 3 – WE CREATE NEW ORDER IN OUR HOME/MIND BY TAKING MASSIVE ACTION.
We reorganise the things – and the thoughts/feelings – we want to keep in a way that serves us, and we move on with clarity, space, and lightness.
