PART 1 – CLUTTER
This week in Part 1 of my latest blog read about how to clear the clutter in your house to create positive energy in your home and surroundings.
Take a look around your home and plan the de-cluttering process in stages. Your house is your outer skin so clutter should be gradually removed over a period of time. Clutter should be kept to a minimum because a clutter-free environment promotes productive activity.
Don’t be too ruthless about what you get rid of. Sometimes items that remind us of who we are and where we came from are part of our identity and could hold positive memories that are important to us.
Cupboards and shelves that contain a build-up of unused and unwanted goods should be cleared out and this should be done on a regular basis so that the de-cluttering procedure doesn’t become a time-consuming exercise and a tiring process that you dread facing.
Ensure you carry out repairs and maintenance as required so that things look right and work correctly. Tackle any outstanding jobs such as letters or telephone calls to clear the clutter in your mind which will help reduce your stress levels too, and give you some ‘head space’ to plan to do important stuff.
Ensure there are no obstacles in your home and enough circulation space throughout so that you can go from room to room without undertaking an obstacle course!
Before disposing of items, contact charity shops in your local area as they could greatly benefit from your unwanted goods if they are in good condition.
Once clutter has been cleared away, let go of it – don’t rush out and replace it all! Remember the golden rule: ‘less is more’.
