There is something very special on the other side of clutter. It is a feeling of peace, contentment, and all is right with the world.

Interestingly this feeling is hard to imagine. It is not something we can fake until we make. There is no manifesting our way out of a mess.

Clutters physical weight is felt as a mental toll. You can’t run from clutter, disguise clutter, or hide clutter. Stuffing everything in closets won’t help, I know.

If you don’t believe me, do this little experiment. Stuff a bunch of stuff under your bed for a week and see how you feel. Yes, it is gone, you take a deep breath and think great, I am good.

The next week get rid of the clutter from under your bed. Organize the mess, relocate, or dispose of.

This results in an entirely different feeling. The other felt good, this is like a breath of clean cool air. You feel lighter, the sun is shining brighter, and you have a deep sense of accomplishment. A bounce in your step.

You know this is true.

De-cluttering not only opens space in our physical world, but it also creates space in our minds and our lives. Clutter in its physical form represents protection, a guard, nothing new gets in. Get rid of the clutter and make “room” for new opportunities.

De-cluttering also:

- Reduces anxiety.

- Promotes self-esteem.

- Fosters relaxation.

- Better focus.

- Awareness of what is important in your life.

- Feeling in control.

Where to begin:

- Start small, a drawer or maybe your car.

- Enlist the help of family members or friends.
