How to declutter your life?
Declutter your life! You don’t need multiples of everything. If the world stopped making something tomorrow, there would be something to replace it.
If you are like me, you like to do a lot of things. You may have many passions or hobbies. This can create chaos unless you are very organized. Not only for you but for those around you.
The more you have, the more space you need. Let’s face it, it’s foolish to move to another place because you’ll just fill it up again if you don’t stop possessing things. Perhaps they possess you? The more you declutter your life the better you will feel!
Depression creeps in if you don’t declutter your life.
Depression causes clutter. It’s a vicious circle. A depressed person usually has a lot of clutter around. Clutter can also drag you and others around you down. Clutter also tends to embarrass and isolate. This causes more depression. You want to avoid coming home. So you foolishly go out to acquire more stuff? Yikes!
Not everyone is this obsessed. However, I bet everyone has something they want to get rid of. Or maybe they intend on cleaning out the office or the garage but? The but is the bad part!
There is no sense of direction.
You are overwhelmed and upset. So you do nothing. You are losing control over your life. Maybe you’ve just lost control of your garage or office? It’s almost impossible for you to run a home or a business efficiently.
Sometimes there is so much clutter. Not only in your home but in your mind and life. It can be overwhelming and you might not know where to start.
When you start to get overwhelmed try to think about what is causing you to be so upset. Once you pinpoint what you are upset about, tackle that problem first. Concentrate on what you need to get rid of. You either need to get rid of too much stuff or you need to take care of crucial confrontations. Perhaps something deeper is bothering you?
Don’t worry, there is help. It does, however, begin with you. Hopefully, you don’t have to hit rock bottom. However, for some it is necessary. There are steps you can take which require action on your part and possibly asking someone to help you.
First, make a list of all the things that are bothering you. There is something so cleansing about writing a problem on a piece of a paper. It literally takes it out of your head and puts it down where you can visually see it.
Next, just start where it’s needed the most. Just break things into small segments and check them off as you complete the list. It’s that simple. Don’t expect miracles overnight.
Thirdly, decide what you want to go to whom. Make sure it’s worthy of giving. Then deliver it, donate it, send it or trash it. It’s that simple.
Decide right now that you don’t need all this stuff to make you happy. If you do, it may be a sign of a much bigger problem. Perhaps, you may want start looking at getting counseling.
When I was younger I foolishly wondered if I would ever have everything I wanted . Now I worry about how I can get rid of all the things I have acquired throughout the years without offending anyone. It’s weighing me down. So I’m
starting today. You can too!
Set stuff free and know that you will always have enough. Be aware that you will help someone else by giving. What you give to others the universe will give back to you. Maybe what the universe will give to you will not be things. It may give you a clear mind to create new and better ideas.
Declutter your life and it will liberate you. You will know that you are free from the weight of owning too much. The more you have, the more you have to take care of. You’ll help others by giving. Then you’ll have more time to devote to your business, family and having fun!
To Your Success!
