Your home should be an oasis—somewhere comforting where you can relax and recharge at the end of the long day. But if you’re like many people, walking through your front door only brings feelings of stress and overwhelm.
Choose a small but meaningful project—something that won’t overwhelm you but will add a lot of value to your life.
Clutter often stems from a lack of clarity. If you don’t know what you want from your home, then it’s hard to set boundaries. Be clear about your goals and the purpose of each space.
Once you know your goals, you can use them to write your own rules and declutter your house with ease. It’s not about what you should do; instead, it’s about what works for you.
By deciding ahead of time what you’ll do with your stuff, you reduce decision fatigue. You’re also less likely to let emotions influence your choices.
Set yourself a limit (say five minutes) and don’t spend longer than that on any one item. If you can’t decide what to do with something, put it aside and you can come back to it later.
