Imagine this: you wake up feeling awesome. You’re excited about the day ahead. So, you bound out of bed and before you even make it to the bathroom, you trip over a pair of shoes on your bedroom floor.Your mind shifts and you think what a crappy day it’s going to be. So, if you’re ready to stop feeling worn down and feel nourished during the average day? Clearing clutter from your home may be the secret you’ve been looking for.
I know that seems like a bold statement. But look around you, darling.
Is your home full of knick-knacks? Are there piles of paper on your desk or coffee table? Is there unfolded laundry piled on the dresser? Or have dirty clothes merged into the piles of clean clothes? Are there a week’s worth of shoes on the floor of your closet or bedroom? And are you tired of looking for stuff? You know: your keys, your purse, your favorite lipstick.
The space you live in has a major affect on how you feel about yourself and your life.
When we think of folks living in a cluttered home, our minds go to that scary hoarder’s place. Rooms so full of stuff that you can only get from room to room via paths between towering boxes and papers and such. But I’m here to tell you, darling, that even the smallest pockets of clutter can block your ability to loving your life.
Your home is not simply a dwelling. Home is the place where you should be able to feel safe and loved. It should support you in all areas of your life. And clutter gets in the way of that. That’s why clearing the clutter from your home is one of the number one tools I suggest to clients.
It’s something my gut has told me for years. And science supports that. Research by the University of New Mexico found that a cluttered environment contributed to folks feeling bad about themselves. And when clutter was excessive, people felt both physically and psychologically entrapped in dysfunction. Darling, there is enough dysfunction in the world without having your home contribute to that, right?
And how can you ponder your deeper desires when clutter distracts you?
When your environment is cluttered, your mind will find it hard to focus on your goals. Clearing clutter from your home will go a long way towards not only thinking about what you deeply desire. It will allow you to clear the path to move towards those dreams and goals.
If that still sounds a little out there, shift your mindset just a smidgen. Just like we imagined waking up ready to face the day, imagine that each little pocket of clutter in your home was a boulder in a running path. In order to have a smooth journey on the path, the caretaker would clear away all those boulders, right?
When the boulders and other rocks are out of the way, then the path is clear. You can walk more quickly. You can turn that trot into a run or sprint. Because nothing is in the way. You build momentum. So, think of clearing clutter from your home as the way to begin building momentum towards the kind of life you desire to live.
Anything that doesn’t serve you is a form of clutter.
Though I’m talking specifically about physical clutter, this can be other kinds of clutter, too. Like mental clutter and calendar clutter. But let’s not digress. Let’s first focus on clearing clutter from your home as a path to that momentum, ok?
Walk into a room you spend a lot of time in. Think about how you want to feel when you’re spending time in that room. Remove every item that doesn’t jive with the vision for that space. Because any item that isn’t congruent with the vision for your life is cluttering it. It’s distracting you from your bigger goals and dreams.
Allow yourself to live in the kind of home that truly supports your dreams. You can love your life. I know you can. And maybe the secret to moving towards a life that feels more loving and supportive begins at home. Clearing clutter from your home allows you to harness that. Because when you take control of your environment, you remind yourself that you are a beloved priority.
Are you ready to begin clearing clutter from YOUR home?
One of the biggest lessons I have learned is that you cannot welcome new things into your life if you don’t release some of the old stuff. You need to begin to purge things from your life. Getting clear in your life by dealing with your physical clutter (big clutter and small clutter) will allow you to direct your precious energy towards creating the clear path to living your best possible life.
I can help you begin clearing clutter from your home. Just give me thirty days.
