I hold my hands up – mess drives me crazy! I hate mess, chaos and disorganisation, in fact I’d go as far as to say that decluttering your home and living with less can actually be liberating and life changing!
Well obviously if you declutter your home, office or life you’ll have more space. More space is a good thing, there’s a sense of airiness and freedom that comes with it, it makes me want to throw open windows and totally freshen the air and that makes me more productive. See, space is good!
Gain a sense of what’s important
Just the act of going through belongings and working out what you actually want to keep and what just isn’t necessary helps me to gain a sense of what’s actually important to me and what is just stuff cluttering up my home and life. It feels good to get rid of unnecessary things.
Less clutter equals less stress, life is calmer and more organised and I gain more time. I no longer waste time searching for things, hunting through piles for missing items. Life is just easier! It even takes less time to clean as there’s less things to move, so I gain even more time. An easier life is most definitely a good thing!
Appreciation and gratitude
Having less and actually wanting what I have means I appreciate things more. I notice them and am grateful for them. This feels good, it’s definitely good for the soul.
Feeling and sense of well being and happiness
Decluttering and a sense of organisation and order make me happy, it gives me a great sense of wellbeing, I feel on top of my life, things are easier, there’s less stress, less fuss, I gain time to do the things I actually love doing.
Yes. Decluttering is very definitely a good thing!
