As a space planner and designer it just goes without saying that I am a firm believer that there should be a place or “home” for everything and everything should be in its place. If you do not adhere to this type of thinking something bad happens…..clutter is born. Let’s take a look at clutter and the impact it can have.
What Clutter Costs
You know that clutter is a bad thing but did you ever stop to think what it costs you?
If you are struggling with clutter take a moment and focus on that cluttered space and ask yourself this question.
How do you feel when you look at it? Stressed? Depressed? Overwhelmed?
Getting organized will help you feel better emotionally and physically; it will bring you clarity and you will begin to feel good about your life, and that’s a pretty relevant reason to tackle it. Decluttering your space is a liberating experience. Once your outer environment is clean, the next step is to nurture your inner environment.
How Do You Conquer Your Clutter
One thing that we all need to pay attention to is how many new things enter our life on a daily basis, school projects, junk mail, and so much more. Before you know it those new things start to contribute to the clutter. We need to embrace the notion that life is full of constant change, so when something new comes into your life, enjoy it, use it and when it’s time, let it go. Just because you own something does not mean you need to keep it forever.
Whether you want to admit it or not we all have a relationship with our possessions. They connect us with specific people, events or seasons in our lives. Sometimes it takes a lot out of us to let go of things, but if we don’t let go of old things, we can’t make room for new things and experiences.
Here are some tips to help you keep clutter away.
You will find that living in an organized clutter free environment is much more calm and serene that you’ll want to keep it that way.
