For many of my clients when they start to de-clutter their mind, their focus next goes towards de-cluttering their home. Sometimes clients come to have therapy after they have started to de-clutter their home, car or office.
De-cluttering is a therapeutic process in itself as our environment is a reflection of our mind and what’s going on in our lives. If your home is in chaos you will find your mind is too, and vice-versa.
It does not matter which way you decide to de-clutter. Start therapy to help see what you’re holding onto, or simply to get some clarity. Alternatively, why not start with picking up everything that’s on the floor. As my saying goes: “when you’re down so are your things on the floor”. Otherwise, try tiding a draw in your kitchen, or a small corner in your bedroom. This action alone will immensely benefit you towards feeling good and achieving a goal one step at a time.
