Whether it’s a messy garage where you can’t find a simple screwdriver because of all the clutter, a messy closet or a desk piled with papers, spend some time getting rid of clutter and you will feel less stressed. If you are not the neat-as-a-pin type, it doesn’t mean you have to clear every surface and force yourself to adopt a style that is not really you. But if you constantly waste time looking for important things, and get frustrated by all the disorganization, spend an hour or two on getting rid of the worst of it. And make a commitment to do this on a regular basis until the chaos is under control.
Grab some boxes or trash bags and be ruthless about getting rid of things that you’ve kept on hand just in case you ever have time to read it or use it. If you haven’t made it a priority thus far, you probably never will. Be sure to put usable items aside for a yard sale or charity donation.
A principle of Feng Shui teaches that if you clear away the clutter and confusion, you also clear space for the new to come into your life. So what is it that you would like to attract? New friends, new profitable ventures, new relationships? First get ready for the new by boxing up the old or at least neatening things more. If you give yourself a time limit of seeing how much you can get done in an hour, or two hours, then it does not become a horrible task.
Enjoy your new freedom from clutter.
