A room is a reflection of the person who lives in it. According to feng shui, decluttering a room allows energy to flow freely, creating harmony, peace and wealth. This means that clutter – all those things that you don’t use but still keep in boxes, bags and stashes – block that energy from circulating freely. A messy living space is the number one enemy of harmony… and it can even be bad for you! Did you know that, according to WebMd, living among clutter can lead to emotional health problems? Many of us have a mess somewhere in our homes. As you welcome 2016, make decluttering your living space a priority. You can kick off the New Year in an oasis of peace and wellbeing and enjoy these four life-changing benefits.!
You’ll save time
Decluttering will help you save seconds, minutes or even hours of frustrated searching for lost keys or an outfit that you were sure was in your closet. Plus, if you reorganize your space at the office, you’ll increase your chances of becoming more productive because you’ll have easy access to everything you need: papers, clips, folders, etc.
You’ll have more space
Pick a day and be intentional about what you’re choosing to keep and what you’ll throw away. There’s a rule that states that if you haven’t touched or remembered a particular item in the last year, then you don’t need it. Apply this rule to everything except things you know you can’t throw away or donate. If you can’t seem to get rid of enough items, ask someone else to help you objectively decide.
You’ll feel happier
Enjoy that feeling of instant gratification every time you clean out your room of unnecessary things. Energy will flow freely, you’ll feel happier, and chores will not seem so stressful when there are fewer items around the room.
You’ll be free
Free from what, you may ask; from feeling tired, worried and anxious at seeing boxes stacked on corners or shoes overflowing out of the closet. You’ll also be free from emotional attachments to material things that might be preventing you from moving on and creating new memories!
Are you ready to begin anew in a clutter-free space? Do you agree that it’s time to clean up and break free? We sure believe so! Declutter your way to a happy, peaceful and stress-free 2016!
