Sometimes life throws you a lemon, but sometimes it throws you 10, or 30! Now let’s switch lemon for clutter. Oh, you know what I’m talking about. Clutter, this word is a definition of distraction, mess, and sadly, does represents how we live our lives. We get overwhelmed once things start to pile up, anxiety levels are above average, but it all comes down to this, where to start? I would like to give thanks to Greatist.com for a wonderfully thought out info graph!
Why be organize?
Having everything organized makes life more efficient and saves sooooooo much time. Finding things, are the biggest time wasters! There are amazing benefits to being more organized such as creating clarity for your mind. It also ties down to our mental and physical health. Picture a spa, clean and clutter free right? That zen-like feeling is amazing so why not bring it home? Our home is one of the places where a lot of people tend to hoard and will admit, I’m guilty of it.
Growing up in an Asian family, it’s normal to be hoarding and I’m at an age in my life where I FINALLY BROKE THAT HABIT. My grandma is a perfect example of a hoarder. I poke fun and call her my squirrel. Her closet is just packed with items dated back 30 years. When I say ‘packed’, what I meant was, there are no hole to put your arms through to find space. Funny enough, these items are still mint condition, saving it for those ‘just in case’ days. lol. At least her clutter was in a closet, behind closed doors.
My home changes from time to time because it gets messy. Messy means items are not placed in spots that make sense or bluntly put it, our organizing system sucks and isn’t working. The placement and categorizing items just need to be efficient and have a purpose. Don’t be lazy, and be tough on yourself… Throw things out! This is a great time to practice the art of ‘letting go’. You will feel so good and relaxed. I promise!
