Clearing mental clutter

Clearing mental clutter

At least twice a year, every individual makes an effort to declutter their dwelling. Sometimes it's called "spring cleaning," and other times, "fall cleaning," since it often takes place in the months leading up to the holiday season. It's never easy to get rid of the "junk" you've accumulated over the years, especially if some of it has emotional value. Objects from the past have special meaning because of the memories they evoke for each of us. Things like love cards, children's first artwork, letters from a former flame, and undated photos are among the items we have a hard time parting with. I've accumulated many cardboard boxes' worth of sentimental trinkets like these, and although I'd want to be able to let them go, I find that I spend more time sorting through them than I do actually getting rid of them.

It's a huge hassle to do spring cleaning of all of our sentimental possessions. It's a boring but essential task that pays off in spades by giving us more breathing room, sunshine, and vitality at home and in our daily lives. The only way to get through it is to treat it like a duty, or any other assignment that requires effort and planning.


Breathe in some positive vibes, guys. We release any stagnant energy that is holding us back when we breathe out. We convince ourselves that if we take a deep breath, we'll be able to fill our lungs and minds with purifying energy and oxygen, giving us the motivation and inspiration we need to complete this work. As we let out our breath, it's important to recognize the ties that link us to all of our relics.

With each thought on the task at hand, we should take a deep breath of clarity and let go of any unnecessary distractions. We must take a deep breath of peace in order to let go of our emotional chaos. We may let go of our obstacles when we envision the improved quality of life that will result from clearing the clutter from our lives. With the emotional clutter cleared out of our lives, we may finally relax in the peace and quiet we've always deserved.

As we continue to take in the new, fresh air and exhale the old, stale air of strain and worry, we come to the sobering realization that our lives and homes have become less of a haven of leisure and more of a place of memories, conflict, and anxieties. The more memories we hold on to, the more we feel like they are suffocating us and preventing us from generating new ones.

To make room for the new in our lives, we must first rid ourselves of the old. Having faith that our spirits can be boosted and our house can once again be filled with sunlight, brightness, and good energy fills us with excitement. It's as if we've dawned on the fact that our clinging to antiquated practices is preventing us from moving forward in time. Clutter in our houses and in our souls has prevented us from progressing.

Now that we've finished our deep breathing, we can start clearing out our storage areas and clearing our heads. Now that we've rediscovered our need for cleanliness and simplicity, we can start clearing out the stuff from our pasts that no one will care about long after we're gone.

We need to pose specific questions to ourselves in order to rid ourselves of the surplus, the clutter, and the hoarded artifacts. We have one minute to examine each item and make a decision on its worth before moving on to the next round of questions. Clutter may be eliminated in one of three ways: discarding, donating, or retaining. Only 10% of the things you throw away should be things you retain. Consider this inquiry while you look through your belongings: how does this affect me? When I look at it, how do I react? Will it keep me stuck in the past? Will other people care about this as much as I do?

You should be thankful for what you have if you find something too important to part with. Donate or throw away the items you've determined won't be missed by loved ones after your passing. After you have eliminated almost all of the excess stuff from your house, take a moment to appreciate the newfound space and the improved illumination. Do you not feel freer, more energised, and more liberated now? Feel proud of yourself for a job well done, but don't rest on your laurels. You may do this whenever you feel that your life has become too cluttered.
