Declutter BUT Start Small!
Cluttered space can make us feel stressful. Are you embarrassed or do you feel guilty at your surroundings when someone drops by unexpectedly? Frustrated because you can’t find what you need — keys, bills, medication?
If you can’t find a place to put something, chances are you have too much stuff. Clear out a little. Don’t try to tackle the whole place at once. Do a little each day that you can. Start small in the bathroom. Clear off the counter. If you don’t use it, loose it. Give yourself 15 minutes. Stay focused just on the counter until it’s done. If you aren’t done after fifteen minutes, stop and spend another 15minutes the next day. A decluttered environment alleviates at least one stressor in your life.
What matters most? Making progress and staying focused on one area at a time.
