Exciting Times Await: Throw a Declutter Party
By Genevieve Smith
You may have resolved to declutter, but are stuck in Stage 2 -- striving for motivation. It’s understandable; tackling a mess can seem overwhelming. Take your task step by step and compartmentalize to find a little zen. It will totally be worth it as you cultivate a calm, healthy living space. Delay no longer: Clutter can impact your life. Let's take a look at some of the exciting outcomes of a streamlined home.
Clutter draws dust, a delicious treat for dust mites. Simplify your space to reduce the spaces for dust to accumulate and breathe in the benefits. The Environmental Protection Agency found dust can contain pesticides and lead. Mites drawn to dust also often irritate the respiratory system, setting off allergies and asthma attacks. You’ll find it’s also easier to wipe surfaces down once you have an efficient living space, so dampen a rag, reach for the vacuum, and hit the furniture and floor of your newly decluttered space.
Get Excited to Work Out at Home
Exercise requires space, and you may not realize how much of it you have! Clear out rummage and carve out space for sweat sessions at home. You may not have noticed how de-motivating the clutter was, but will find a satisfying feeling on the other end.
Find More Energy
The weight of one’s worldly possessions can take a toll! You may be draining your own battery from the background noise of indecision and stress stemming from the accumulation of your things. Many find an upswing in energy once they make a space inspired by efficient aesthetics. The best way to approach this is to create a system for the future. Decide what you will do for various categories of items which will inevitably come into your life down the road. The goal is to reduce future indecision and the need for procrastination. Knowing what you will do with new items helps create a no brainer system that is energy efficient.
A space you love to call home invites meals in and hearty home cooking. If you’re stressed in your space, it’s all the more likely you’ll eat out and ingest more fat and sodium than is recommended on a regular basis. Simplify your space and find the calm of cooking.
Try breaking down de-cluttering into small, bite-sized tasks, with the goal of accomplishing your vision within an attainable timeline. Create a no-brainer system to stay on top of organization in the future, and be sure to tidy up daily to rid yourself of any feelings of procrastination. Avoid creating something for you to fight against! The goal is to find a zen space open for workouts and home cooking, and the initial cleaning party will all be worth it. So crank up the tunes and get decluttering.
