Abundance of Opportunities to Declutter

Decluttering our lives has such a huge impact on how we feel about ourselves and our space. I want you to think for a moment about how you feel when your space is clean and free of clutter. It can even be a time when your mind space is free of clutter. How does it feel to be in that clutter free space?

I know for myself that when my space starts to feel cluttered it is generally a pretty good indication that I am overwhelmed in some area of my life. When we set aside time to declutter our physical space it actually has an affect on our mental space as well. Spending time decluttering has so much power to really reset your mindset as well.

Think about how good it feels when you have gone through your closet and reorganized it and sent boxes or bags of stuff to donation. Or even if you spend the day cleaning out your garage, visualize what it feels like to walk into a clean and organized space. Does it feel better to be in that space or even to visualize that space being cleaned and organized?

We have so many opportunities to declutter our lives, yet often when we get bogged down mentally the physical clutter starts to rise around us a well. If you are noticing yourself feeling weighted by the clutter in your life start to make a list of one of two things you can do each day to declutter some area of your life.

Maybe start with something small like reorganizing your tupperware drawer. It might just take you 5 to 10 minutes to organize it and throw out lids that no longer fit or bases that no longer have tops, yet it can have huge benefits to uplifting your spirit. Once you have organized your tupperware drawer, notice how you feel the next time you need a container. If you are anything like me when you cannot find the lid or a proper size container it is unbelievably frustrating. When you can easily open your cupboard and find what you need there is a sense of gratitude and appreciation for having an organized and decluttered space.

Decluttering has a such an impact on both our physical and mental well-being. If you are currently struggling with stuff that is cluttering your mind try to spend some time journaling about what it is that is holding space. There is something very therapeutic about writing out what is bothering you. It is almost like what is keeping you stuck flows out of your mind and onto the page helping you to release the blocked energy, which in turn allows your mind to let go of your troubles and clear space for the fun loving side of life.

This week take some time to declutter one area of your life. It can be as simple as spending ten minutes cleaning out a junk drawer. Or journaling out the clutter in your mind. Whatever it is that you decide to focus on decluttering take notice of how you feel before and after. Then how you feel about that space a few days later. It might even motivate you keep decluttering more areas of your life one space at a time.
