Did you know that your space is an outward expression of your mind? Many people live their daily lives totally unaware of this fact. Yet cluttered spaces are often times the reason we experience energy blocks, fatigue, and anxiety. This is why decluttering is so important!
Space has always been a focus of the declutter process and for obvious reasons. But there are other aspects of our lives that are at risk for clutter! Like our time, and our minds. That’s right clutter is a silent happy life hacker.
Decluttering Time: Are there things that you want to do, but you feel there is never enough time? Or do you over commit yourself to multiple tasks, then end up not completing them or canceling?
This was the story of my life for the longest. I never wanted to say no to offers for fear of losing opportunities and potential relationships. It took me a while to realize that not showing up, or canceling last minute was actually causing more damage than declining the offer all together.
We shouldn’t live our lives in cluttered time.
Decluttering your time is all about making time for the things that matter most when you over commit yourself you are adding too many unimportant task into your 24 hour day.
