Decluttering goes beyond creating a tidy physical space; it also offers numerous mental health benefits.
First of all, IMPROVED FOCUS My favorite reason for decluttering. Decluttering reduces visual and sensory overload, promoting a sense of calm and tranquility. It actually helps to clear your mind by removing distracting and unnecessary stimuli, allowing for improved focus and concentration. Second, TAKING BACK CONTROL As a busy career-successful woman, many of us can feel overwhelmed, mind racing, easily distracted and defeated before even getting started! Decluttering fosters a greater sense of control and mastery over one's environment, which can alleviate feelings of stress and anxiety. Third, MAKING WAY FOR ENTRY OF NEW BEGINNINGS!! Organizing and sorting through belongings can also be cathartic, providing a sense of accomplishment and boosting self-esteem. It is also a great way to look some of your guilts and shame in the face...forgive yourself and letting go. Truly this exercise alone is a brick laid down in the foundation towards growing in your power and this feeling of power will seep into other areas of your life - leaving you reaping the rewards for your gain! Decluttering can create a more harmonious living environment, which can positively impact mood and overall well-being. It can enhance mental clarity and decision-making abilities as a clutter-free space promotes a clearer thought process. Where should you start? Any of these areas is a great place to begin! Pick one and YOU WILL start to feel the immediate benefits!!
Declutter YOUR CLOSET! Get rid of things that don't make you happy anymore. Things that don't fit - out the door they should go. NO - do not be holding on to anything that you're saving for when you loose the weight! - Let that go! Stop holding yourself hostage. Keep what makes you happy, feels good.
Declutter YOUR CALENDAR! Decline appointments and cancel tasks, projects or engagements that do not align with your goals and wants. Ask yourself, does this obligation move me one step closer to anything I want?
Declutter YOUR WORK SPACE! Declutter that workspace and make room for mental clarity and greater focus! Add a plant (real or fake) into your space. Get rid of that stack of papers that only leave you feeling the anxiety. Give away any "decorative" pieces that no longer bring you joy! Add a water feature in the space - this does not have to be an expensive one - lots of affordable desktop water features are available. Have fun and create a space that feels good to work in.
Decluttering empowers us to regain control over our environment and our minds, reducing stress, increasing productivity, and fostering a greater sense of peace and serenity. So, let's embrace the transformative power of decluttering and embark on a journey towards a lighter, calmer, and more harmonious life.
