Optimise Your Home
Having too much stuff can feel very overwhelming. When you finally work up the courage to take action, it can be difficult to know where to start. Your anxiety can quickly suck up your motivation and determination, and make you want to give up. It doesn't have to be like this for you.
Perhaps you have a baby on the way, a young family to manage, you're a time poor, are managing an ongoing illness or just want more time, more space and more money.
Curating your home is key to giving you a simpler and easier life.
Do you have a clutter problem?
Read these scenarios and see if you see yourself in the picture:
- When you get home, you feel anxious. You can't really relax. Your house is full of stuff, but it's not the right stuff. It all gets in the way. It's difficult to do your daily thing and is frustratingly hard to keep neat and tidy.
- In the bedroom, you have heaps of clothes, but nothing to wear. You've given up on making the bed, and there is stuff on the floor. It's hard to get a good night's sleep because there are things in there that have nothing to do with resting. Getting ready in the morning is a frantic mad-dash rather than a relaxed time to energise yourself and plan for the day.
- In your living area, you eat dinner on your lap because the table is full of paperwork, craft activities and washing waiting to be put away. You can't enjoy your photos and decor items properly because there is other stuff in the way.
- In the kitchen, you have heaps of gadgets, but only a handful of things you actually use. Lots of plastic lids with no matching bottoms. Stacks of entertaining-ware, but you rarely entertain. Collector cups, funny straws and drinks holders which languish in the bottom draw. Or, perhaps it's the famous junk draw that everyone seems to have, but no one actually needs.
Yes? You're not alone. But you can absolutely do something about it. And not just a temporary fix; you can learn how to change your thinking and your behaviour!
