As regular readers and mailing list subscribers will know, I declutter every area of my home on a rotating schedule.
Which means that I don’t build up a clutter backlog.
I know what I’ve got and where it is. And there’s never a lot to move on from any space (though there is always something, often to my surprise).
It doesn’t compare to the satisfaction of clearing a heavily cluttered area though.
When I work with clients, we transform an area that’s heaped with stuff, and thick with dust, into a neat, clear space.
We take an area that is causing them misery and distress, and turn it into a space they love to be in.
They shift from feeling hopeless, overwhelmed and exhausted, to being inspired, energised and excited.
As they begin setting their home up in a way that works for them, they develop the strength and confidence to take on other areas of their lives.
For example, Rose is now working with a personal stylist to revamp her wardrobe. Something she wouldn’t have contemplated before I helped her declutter.
It almost makes me wish I had a clutter mountain to tackle. So I could experience that massive upsurge in my confidence, energy and happiness.
What would be possible for you if you decluttered? Please comment below.
