Declutter your mind: less stress,more peace
Life can be complicated and it’s easy to get overloaded and overwhelmed. However, with some careful planning and a bit of thought, we can make it so much easier on ourselves. One of the ways we can do this is by decluttering. The Collins Dictionary defines clutter as ‘a lot of things in an untidy state, especially things that are not useful or necessary.' Clutter isn’t just the physical stuff in our homes. It can also be emotional and psychological as we busy our brains like we busy our life. As you can see, clutter isn’t just dealt with by going through your home and getting rid of things that you don’t love, don’t need and don’t add value. Listen to How to find your focus, carve out more time and create more freedom for the life that you want to life.
