We all know what clutter is. It can make our houses look untidy, uncared for, and it can create what seems like a mountain to climb.
Clutter is indeed the enemy, but clutter is a symptom, not a cause. There are a myriad of reasons why we collect/hoard/refuse to get rid of stuff and once we understand what those reasons are we can start stripping back and rebuilding.
Clutter is a barrier, an impediment; it stops us living the life we want to live and be the people we want to be. Clutter is toxic: it can affect our anxiety levels, sleep, and ability to focus. Clutter also hides other issues such as badly planned space and uninteresting, uninspiring decor which in turn feed into the toxicity of the space. By removing the clutter, we can remove the toxicity and allow our spaces and ourselves to breathe again.
By dealing with the clutter first, we can remove the first layer of unhappiness and have a look at what's underneath. Once positive action is taken, you will immediately start to see and feel the positive effects.
Ridding your home of clutter will create space in your home and it will create space in your head. A tidy house really is a tidy mind. I want to help people live a clutter-free life, to let go of those material things they are chained to, to organise their lives, and to see their homes in a new light. I keep saying it but everyone deserves to have a beautiful home no matter what their budget is and, more than that, everyone deserves a home that allows them to breathe and relax. Once we've made your home a beautiful place to be in it will be harder to go back to the old ways. Your home will have changed, but so will you.
Decluttering your home and your mind is not the kind of thing that will happen overnight; you can't just rip the plaster off and suddenly change habits of a lifetime. However, it is amazing what a positive change can be made by just making that decision to take action. With each baby step you will feel freer from whatever was making you hold onto stuff in the first place and changing your environment will change you. It will change the way you live and it will have a positive impact on the rest of your life.
Let's make the decision to start today and see how we can change our lives together.
