Going into a New Year, a lot of us equate with a new start.
For some this could be committing to moving your body at least 30 minutes a day or taking that art class you always wanted to, cutting down on boozy weekends or just making sure you call your mum every week for a chat.
One of the big things I see at the start of the New Year is an influx of new clients, finally taking the step to de-clutter that spare room, the aptly named ‘cupboard of death’ or making preparations for a down-size.
When it comes to decluttering and purging, many people approach the task like it’s going to be easy. And then they end up holding onto tons of stuff they thought they’d be able to part with.
But if you’re really trying to purge your house of junk, you’ve got to be ready to sever the emotional ties you’ve made to the stuff you own and let it go.
Most of us keep way too much stuff in our homes without even thinking about it.
Keeping less clutter around can bring lots of benefits. They include: mental clarity, better focus, and less stress, not to mention less time spent cleaning.
You’ll definitely benefit from purging junk in your home –so here are some great questions to ask yourself as you purge:
💫 Does this bring me joy?
💫 Does this fit me anymore?
💫 Is this something I want or something I need?
💫How will my life be impacted if I let this go?
💫Who can make use of this more than I can?
Purging your house of junk might sound scary, but once you get started, you’ll be amazed to see just how amazing it can feel to live in a clutter-free space. Not only will your space benefit from this shift, but your mind will, too!
