Is your life a hot mess? We're taking the whole month of March to declutter the mind, the body, your life and your pantry. Catch the YouTube playlist HERE. Decluttering isn't just about cleaning the dust, it's about removing the "stuff" in your life that is no longer serving you. "Stuff" can refer to social media, relationships, and your schedule. March is a great time to take inventory of your life. What do you use and love and what has been sitting there for months/years untouched?
Who doesn't have a junk drawer in the kitchen that's just a catch-all? Since we've moved so often, I realized that I have several junk drawer boxes. YIKES! If I threw away the entire box, I'd probably never miss the contents. This is exactly what I'm talking about--declutter your life and make room to breathe. Anyone want to come hold my hand through this process?
FOUR TIPS TO DECLUTTER YOUR LIFE
Get rid of the vampires in your life. Take inventory of the people in your life. Not the outliers but those closest to you. Who is sucking your energy and time? Make a commitment to spend less time with the vampires and drama queens and more time with those who fill you up; bringing you positive energy.
Turn off the news. You know as well as I do that this current world crisis is splashed all over the news 24/7. Even though it may not impact you directly, it does affect our stress level and leads to mind clutter. Choose your screen time wisely. Choose to watch a comedy and invite some of those happy hormones into the body.
Manage your time. How cluttered is your daily schedule? What can you remove to make your life less stressful? Rarely do we have to choose between a good or bad event to add onto our day. It's almost always a good and a good. We tend to take on more than is reasonable. On paper it looks like it all fits, but in reality, things take longer than we think. What can you let go of this year to free up some white space in your day to day?
Organize your house and car to your lifestyle. What do you use on a daily basis? Take it out and put those things in arms reach. Our cars tend to be a second office. If you're playing mom/dad taxi then you know what I'm talking about. We get some of our best work done in the car at baseball practice. Be sure you've got a place for everything and that everything is in it's place so there's no wasted time looking for it.
