Recently, I’ve been wondering how much our living environment affects our life, our happiness, our energy levels, our success, our health, etc. Well, it does! There is even a science that deals with this called feng shui! It is interesting stuff, however, I don’t want to go into details here, as I am not an expert; and I only want to share some very simple thoughts that are just common sense.
I always loved home decor and design, planning a perfect living environment. I know not everyone can afford to have the perfect house, but you can still make the best of what you have.
I also like those makeover TV shows where they help people revamp their homes. It is not only about bringing in a nice new design and a modern look, but also about getting rid of the old and probably a lot of clutter that doesn’t serve those people anymore. A makeover like this can really change people’s lives, as by themselves they might never had decluttered their house.
Now I am getting to my point, which is about keeping your environment tidy and clutter-free. It is more important than we think. If you have too much stuff all over the place in your house, it is taking the energy away from those things in your life that are really important. Simplicity is the key!
Why do you keep stuff you no longer use? It’s okay to keep things for a while just in case, but what about the stuff we do not use for 10/20/30 years?? Get rid of the clothes you are no longer wearing, get rid of the old gadgets that are no longer working, donate your old furniture you no longer want in your house.
Your environment is reflecting your inner reality and whatever problems you might be facing in life. Therefore, it is better to live in a clean, tidy and purposeful environment.
Let’s imagine an exercise when we visit the houses of some random people and we look at their living area. Take a few notes on how their home looks inside. Is it cluttered, is it tidy? Is it modern, is it minimalistic? Is it old school, is it fresh? As you answer these questions, you will probably find the same patterns in those people’s lives.
And now, you can look around in your own home to see what is serving you well and what needs to be changed. It might seem overwhelming to start a major decluttering, but you can do it step by step. It is going to be worth it!
Be brave, get rid of the old and make space for the new!
