If you’re anything like me, physical clutter gives you anxiety, brings on more stress, and makes you feel like nothing is ever finished. You have accumulated so many random items you don’t even know where or how to begin. You may keep telling yourself you’ll be more organized as soon as you finish school, when your kids are at a certain age, you get the job you’ve been working towards, or any other life event that might make it “easier” or be at a better “time.”
The truth? There is never going to be that “perfect time.”
The time is now. When you’re busy, stressed, and have a million other things to do. The longer you wait, the more your stuff is going to continue to accumulate and the longer you’re going to be living a cluttered and dissatisfied life.
Because most likely, your physical clutter is bringing you emotional clutter that often ruins your day, or takes up your time. Think about how much more time and peace of mind you would have on your hands if the way you lived life was more simple?
I began this journey in the middle of my senior year of college.
I did NOT have time to sit and go through all of my things and try and re-organize my life, cook healthy meals three times a day or even sleep more than 5-6 hours a night. Forget about keeping track of my finances and taking time for myself. However, I realized there needed to be a change in the way I went through life.
As humans we need to work from rest, not rest to work.
And the way I had been living most likely for the last 8 years of my life, I was resting to work, not working from rest. I let my to-do lists take over my life and I ran myself into the ground more times than I can count. I wasn’t living a healthy lifestyle and was constantly overwhelmed.
Lucky for you, because of my anxiety, OCD, obsession with minimalism, un-satisfaction, or whatever you want to peg my motivation as, I have been diligently researching the best tips and tricks on how to downsize the clutter physically and emotionally in my life and begin living an all-around healthy lifestyle.
In this blog, I have devoted my “research” (scholarly articles, Pinterest, online reviews etc.) and personal experience to help others find quick and easy ways to begin living a more simple and meaningful lifestyle in all aspects of life. The biggest things I had a hard time trying to redirect my habits with were finances, physical/digital clutter, a healthy diet, time management/peace of mind and products that really work without killing my bank account. I have condensed everything I have learned in what I believe to be the most simple and effective strategies to share with you, so you don’t have to spend all of the time I did trying to figure this all out on your own. If any of these topics interest you I encourage you to press the follow button below so you don’t miss out on any weekly updates or challenges on how to turn your life around from hectic to simple in cheap, quick and easy steps. Everything I write about are things that I am actively doing to ensure these work in making the overwhelmingly impossible, possible.
