Clutter can leave us feeling bogged down energetically as well as mentally. When I have clutter, I have trouble focusing and getting things done. I feel a sense of underlying low level anxiety and stress. I, like many of you, do not have entire days off when I can clean and de-clutter so I’m left with where to start?! Recently I completed Laura Thompson Brady’s e-course “Hectic to Harmonious”. http://www.thenourishedhome.com/ This course was amazing and really helped me to set small achievable goals. One part of the e-course was simplifying your home. She suggested to pick one small corner or one small area and envision what you want it to look like and feel like and de-clutter or reorganize that one small area. WOW! This had a huge impact on me and my family’s energy level and mental health. I started with bookshelves as I love books. I reorganized and gave away books that were no longer age appropriate or ones that were no longer of interest to me. The energy I obtained from this small task encouraged me to continue this process when I had even just 15 spare minutes. My son’s art table was my most recent project. This table is in our kitchen and is one of the first things I see when I walk into my home from the laundry room. It is a “catch-all” for my son. If he doesn’t want to take the time to put it away, he puts it on the art table. I found some great ideas on Pinterest for organizing pencils and crayons and placed a large piece of white paper on the table. It looks wonderful and it feels so great to walk into my kitchen now. I invite you to pick one small corner of your home and de-clutter. I would love to hear how this affects your life!
