Having clutter isn’t always something we think about or even talk about. How many of us buy more than we need? We don’t even have to use what we buy; we can just store it, or look at it.
My personal belief is that we mustn’t clutter or hoard things; buy things to store; but not use them. When we take clutter away, we begin to let go of more than just our possessions; emotionally and psychologically we simplify and tidy our mind; what we think about our lives and where we need to make the changes. We begin to adapt into our lives better without the clutter.
It may not just be possessions. For example, we may have friends whose relationship is draining your energy through negativity, a lack of support; no give ‘n’ take. If it’s all of these things then it’s time to drift apart, fix or end the relationship completely.
So how can we de-clutter?
We could consolidate our ‘to do’ list so it’s more manageable; we could consolidate our finances and our friends; we could buy less when we’re at the supermarket. There’s lots we can do.
The reasoning behind decluttering is simple. When we declutter; all other aspects of our lives become simplified too including our need to live with clutter.
