Excessive clutter is often a cause of stress. It can affect every facet of your life. Clutter can affect your overall enjoyment of life, weigh you down, and in general it invites chaos into your life. Clutter doesn’t always mean the excess stuff around your living space. It can be the possessions, ideas, relationships, and activities that don’t bring value to your life. So reassessment of your priorities is important so that you can strip away the excess stuff. Here are just a few suggestions o get you started.
1. Declutter your living space — The less things you have the less complicated your life will be. We create our own world around us and fill it with items. Things become old and useless with time. Survey your surroundings and get organized. Sort your items in three categories—keep, donate, and throw away. Keep the things that you really need, and throw away or give away old stuff you no longer need. Give yourself some extra breathing room. The more you clear from your living space, the lighter you feel.
2. Think about your clothes — Always try to keep your cloths where they belong. Dirty items should go in the hamper. Go through your closet and start reducing the clutter. Anything of your cloths that you haven’t worn in six months is not worth keeping. Keep only the clothes that you love and use frequently. Throw out or donate unused clothes to someone who might want it.
