A great way to clear the clutter from your home, your mind, and your life!
The journey of a thousand miles starts with one step. So too does your spring-cleaning. It may seem like a big chore and a burden, but I have some tips to help you tackle this task so that you can clear the clutter from your home, your mind, and your life. Clearing out the clutter in your home is a great way to energize yourself and bring in the fresh new energy of spring.
If spring-cleaning seems too daunting and you find yourself procrastinating, then you need to break the task into smaller more manageable steps. Rather than thinking about the whole house/apartment focus on one room at a time… or even one drawer at a time. Put on your headphones, play your favorite music, and start cleaning! Remember, one step at a time.
It is important to clear out the old so that you can make room for the new – figuratively and literally. There is something almost magical about the effect that clearing out the clutter from your physical space can have on your mental space. As you sort through and organize your belongings, you often notice a mental clarity developing as well. Imagine yourself clearing away the mental cobwebs as you clean and organize your home.
As you sort through your belongings decide what you really need and want, then donate the rest to charity. A good rule of thumb is that if you haven’t worn it or used it in a year, then it is time to get rid of it. It is time to let go of the past and move forward. Focus on your gratitude for the way that these items have contributed to your life. Imagine filling the item with love, gratitude, and positive energy. You can then feel good about letting the item go, knowing it can help make a difference in someone else’s life.
What are you waiting for? Start now and take it one step at a time. Begin your spring cleaning and set your intention to do a little mental spring-cleaning at the same time. You will feel a little lighter and brighter as you jump into spring.
