Hey everyone! I thought I’d go out of my comfort zone and write on a topic that I feel is very important for our everyday lives.
How important (when we’re planning a vacation) is it for us to make sure everything is organized, neatly together, and we’re staying in an area that we genuinely enjoy? It’s incredibly important to me, because I know that I want quality memories, a peaceful mindset, and to feel relaxed overall. We spend so much time – weeks (or months!) putting energy into planning a getaway for a peaceful environment that may only last for days. With every trip that I get home from, I always take one valuable lesson back with me:
Try to appreciate the environment you’re living in.
But how do we do that? My reasoning for mentioning how much we plan our vacations have a lot to do with this lesson. Why would I spend so much time perfecting an experience that I’m only going to have for a few days, but not spend any time perfecting the place I’m in majority of the year?
Do you ever feel stressed and unmotivated when you see clothing piling up, trash scattered around, unacknowledged mail, collections, old gifts, and junk stacking?
Whenever I declutter, I feel like a big weight is lifted from my shoulders. I feel like my brain is being cleared as well. Tidying up can be a lot more than just feeling better about the present moment. I truly believe that decluttering your life opens doors to a brighter future and welcomes new positive energy.
I know that it’s hard to feel motivated without a direction, checklist or steps to move forward. That’s why I created a 10 Day Declutter Challenge. For a few of my future posts, you can expect the challenge list, a breakdown of each day, and before & after posts. Let’s start off the new year – or even now – with a stress free environment.
In this 10 Day Declutter Challenge, I’ll be writing detailed descriptions of every day for the ten days of clearing clutter. We’re going to be going over the following:
Anything paper / Clothing / Digital Clutter / Drawers & Cabinets / Unfinished Projects / Memories & Sentimental Things / Junk, Scraps / Face Skin & Body / Gifts / People, Habits, Lifestyle
Who is with me in this?!
