30 May Health Benefits of Cleaning and Decluttering
Decluttering and embracing a minimalist lifestyle has many perks. In todays day and age, most of us are carrying emotional baggage in the form of piles of “stuff” that we can do without. If you’re dubious about tackling the clutter in your home and office, read about the many benefits to your mental and emotional health.
It’s All About “Letting Go”
Are you getting a panic attack at the mere thought of cleaning out your closet and drawers? Consider this: Every item symbolises a moment in your life that is long gone. You need to leave the past behind to make room for the new. Start by sorting through clothes, accessories and books that you don’t like anymore. Every time you sell or donate something, you’ll be closing a cycle.
Do it to Feel Good and in Control
Closing cycles is great, but so is knowing what you have and where it is. A decluttered and organised home will look beautiful and smell great. It will also give you a sense of being in charge of your life and, let’s be honest, with our hectic lives, who doesn’t need that? With a clear head and a light heart, you’ll be unstoppable.
Increased Focus and Productivity
In addition to feeling in control of your home and life, you’ll find that it’s easier to concentrate and get things done. This is true when you devote some time to organising your workspace or office. Have you dreamt of a beautiful and Instagrammable workstation? Now is the time for a makeover. Color coding your items, categorising and arranging them into neat piles will allow you to concentrate on the task at hand.
And Now… Treat Yourself!
All that work will benefit every aspect of your life, however, you must not forget to reward yourself. Be it a bottle of Prossecco, a new outfit or a spa day at Shakina, choose something that will boost your confidence and self-esteem.
