3 Tips on Decluttering Your Home (and Mind!)

You might have the best intentions when you start to declutter your home, but it can be challenging to stay motivated.

Perhaps you feel like this process is a waste of time and energy because your house will never really get clean.

However, if that's what you think, then we want to challenge that mindset! 

This post will provide helpful tips on how to declutter your home (and mind!) in a few easy steps.

#1 Start with one room at a time

This can seem like an overwhelming task, but it's much easier to work in one room at a time. You don't need to worry about the rest of your home while you declutter this specific space, so give yourself permission to take as long as is necessary. 

The point is to focus all your energy on one room at a time and see it through to the end. Otherwise, if you try doing the whole house at once, you'll probably end up super frustrated and quit anyway.

#2 Make your piles for each room (Keep, Donate, and Throw Away)

When decluttering, it's easier to make piles for each area of your home. 

For example, if you're decluttering a bedroom, then create three separate stacks: Keep (items that belong in this room), Donate (things that are good enough to donate or pass on to someone else), and Throw Away (junk). 

You can use the same process when clearing out other areas such as kitchens, living rooms, and bathrooms! This may be the most challenging part because you're going to have to be somewhat strict with yourself on what's important enough to keep. 

Otherwise, you'll just end up saving everything and defeating the purpose of decluttering! There is no need to feel overwhelmed by how much clutter there is around our homes, and afterward, you can even hire a cleaning service to help you take your decluttering project to the next level!

Remembering the two key points above, start with one room at a time and make your piles, which will help you get back to an organized state in no time. Organizing after decluttering can almost feel somewhat therapeutic, and you may even notice how much space your home truly has without all the unnecessary goods stashed inside it!

#3 The psychological effect of decluttering your home

Decluttering provides an opportunity to organize your space and have a positive impact on the way you feel. It can be hard going through items and deciding if they're worth keeping or donating, but it's essential to realize that this process is actually good for you!

Getting rid of clutter from our homes can cause us to think clearer- there will no longer be any distractions around us which allows more focus time. Clutter, in general, can lead to stress; having less stuff means we'll experience less anxiety about where things are kept and what needs picking up because everything has its own place now.

In addition, decluttering may help with emotional problems such as depression or OCD.
