Our lives are full of stuff

Our lives are full of stuff

Our lives are full of stuff. We have stuff to do, stuff to learn, stuff to manage, and lots and lots of stuff in our environments. Whether it is the clutter in our office or the things in our homes, we all seem to have a lot of stuff.

How can we organize, purge, and release ourselves of the things we no longer need? 

Take Before And After Pictures:

If you take before and after pictures you will be amazed at the transformation of your space.

Address Your Attachment To Your Things:

The simple truth is we are attached to our things. Whether it be our clothes, accessories, or kitchen appliances.  Some people more than others, but somewhere deep down we have feelings for our stuff.

Identifying how we feel about nonliving objects is the first step in letting go.

Some things we have are old and hold a sense of nostalgia for us. Maybe it belonged to your parent or grandparent. Maybe you have had it since you were a child. These types of objects are important to us, and should have a place in our homes or offices to be displayed. If, however, you find these things are buried in a closet or storage space then it is time to rethink what we are displaying.

Take Inventory:

Take a walk down memory lane through your home or office. Look to each picture on the wall, each object displayed on tables and shelves. Go through your closets and drawers and really give yourself a chance to touch each item and think about it. When did you acquire this item? Did you buy it or was it a gift? Do you even still like it?

Taking the time to find that connection you have with your stuff will give you a real picture of what is actually important to you.

The Give and Keep Options:

As you begin to go through your things you will come across objects that have little to no meaning to you. You might touch an object and think “I have no idea where I got this. These are great items to put in the Give pile.

Other items you will come across and will instantly have a flood of emotions; remembering every detail surrounding the object. These are your keepers.

Display Your Heart:

Try displaying the items you love in a fun way. The blanket your Grandmother made you as a child will give you more pleasure displayed on your bed or draped over the corner of a chair, than it would stuffed in a box in the closet. 

Take the time to use a microfiber cloth and an all purpose cleaner to give your environment a boost.

When we surround ourselves with less clutter, and enjoy the things that matter most to us, our Healthy Environments become simple.
