Our outer world affects our inner world, for instance I find that when my house is messy my thoughts become messy and I feel stressed. My mother used to say, “a place for everything and everything in its place” which has been a helpful mantra for me. With everything where I expect it to be I save time as things are easy to locate. Indeed de-cluttering (tidying away) can reduce housework by 40%! Just de-cluttering a little bit each day, or 30 mins a week can be helpful. As you leave a room take that item that doesn’t belong there and put it away. Deal with paperwork as it comes in or spend a little time the end of each week filing it away. De-cluttering is mentally uplifting and energising, and that sense of achievement will be an extra postiive boost. Go on, make some room for what’s important!
