Declutter like a mofo πŸ‘Š

Happy March πŸ™ŒπŸ» It’s that time of year where people are coming out of hibernation, are starting to think about spring clening and perhaps ready to declutter like a mofo!

Decluttering can be overwhelming. It’s strongly connected to trauma and I see it a lot with my clients. Life today is chaotic and hectic. With smart technology and social media we’re constantly “plugged in” and many of us are in a state of anxiety and overwhelm. Living like this, tackling clutter can be the last thing we want to do but procrastinating makes the problem worse.

One tip I like is to set a timer for 10 minutes and get cracking! 10 minutes, for most people isn’t daunting and once you get started and see you’re getting somewhere it can be a huge motivation to continue.

If 10 minutes has you quivering, another approach I’ve come across is “just 10 things” This method you put away/bin/recycle 10 items, which can be achieved in a few minutes. Again, if you feel motivated to do so, continue and do another 10. Small steps are actually better rather than “declutting like a mofo” If you’re into holistic health and healing you’ve likely heard of a “healing crisis” where the body releases toxins and stored emotions. Decluttering is energy work and our “stuff” may have significant memories and strong emotions attached to them. Letting go on a physical, mental or emotional level is hard going and draining. Be gentle with yourself during this process. This advice is backed up by DeniseΒ Linn, Space clearing and Feng Shui expert. Denise suggests three ways to tackle Decluttering:

  1. By room
  2. By category (as in the Konmari method)
  3. By what you want to manifest e.g. abundance, romance, health

Taking this a step further, you can clear blocks and “stuck” emotions relating to the areas you are working on using EFT and forgiveness (for example Ho’opono pono)

Get clearing and make room for the new to flow into your life.

To fine tune your manifest skills, here’s a five day manifesting challenge πŸ™ŒπŸ»βœ¨

  1. I was very good at start of the year and made sure that I cleared out my stuff. I also found places for things, hence my spring clean will mostly include a simple polish πŸ™‚ such a nice feeling! I love the 10 thing idea as i tend to get bored during a sort-out and then go to bed with stuff everywhere haha good way to keep you going πŸ™‚

    • I agree, it’s not the most exciting of tasks! I’ve gone to bed and given up before too, it can seem never ending! Yes, the 10 things approach can get it out of the way quicker freeing up time for more interesting things πŸ˜‰πŸ™ŒπŸ»
