Decluttering = Destressing

May 31, 2024

There’s a reason it’s called spring cleaning. Now’s the perfect time to help decrease your sense of stress by taking a few minutes to organize your space in a way that works for you. This can help your day go more smoothly and provide more balance to your life.

Clearing clutter is the first step towards having good Feng Shui. Clutter has a negative impact on your space, blocking the flow of chi. It can drain you of energy, keep you stuck in the past, and make you feel uncomfortable.

The less you own, the less things weigh on you – physically, mentally and emotionally. Decluttering things helps you lighten your load, making you feel lighter in body, mind, and spirit.

“Prior to the re-design, my office was a cluttered, disorganized mess that really said nothing about who I am. I tended to use it as a catch-all for things I didn’t know what to do with. Now it’s well-organized, bright and seems to flow in the way it’s laid out. I love it!”
– As you declutter, you’ll create space for positive energy to flow freely. A clutter-free environment promotes mental clarity and allows you to focus on what truly matters. Cleaning can be a form of mindfulness, where you engage fully in the present moment.”   Mary Beth Hoelzer

It can create a sense of clarity and openness in our environment, promoting a greater understanding of inner peace and spiritual connection. Cluttered physical surroundings create mental and emotional chaos, making it difficult to focus on spiritual practices or connect with a higher power.

Top 5 Don’ts (in no particular order)

  1. Don’t just pack boxes full of random loose items you just dumped off your desk or the kitchen counter. A new place means a chance to start fresh and organized. Opening a box of chaos is not going to help achieve that. Also, you are more likely to avoid unpacking a box that is overwhelming to look at, leaving the potential for it to sit taking up space or ending up lost in a basement.
  1. Don’t use newspapers to wrap items in. It’s dirty and it will make more work for you unpacking. You will have to wipe off or wash the black residue off your items. Buying the unprinted moving newsprint (mentioned in the Do’s) is worth the investment.
  1. Don’t wait until the last minute to book a mover or even a rental truck. Especially if it is at the beginning or the end of a month. You may end up having to go with a less than great company and risk having a poor moving experience.
  2. Don’t pick a mover because they are the cheapest! Get referrals. These people are moving your most precious belongings, not the time to be a bargain hunter.
