Decluttering can take your life to a whole new level. Read on, this article could help you declutter your routine and say goodbye to a cluttered lifestyle. Working from home can be both a blessing and a curse. Remaining in the comfort of your own home, especially in the dead of winter, is enticing, but making your transforming your cozy home into a space for productivity can take some work.
If you’re like most people, chances are you have some clutter in your life. Whether it’s that junk drawer you never use or an office desk littered with paperwork, having clutter in your home (and now your workspace) can cause challenges that extend beyond the physical space. In addition to being an eyesore, research has shown that clutter can lead to feelings of stress and anxiety by:
- Distracting us
- Bombarding our brains with extra stimuli
- Making it difficult to relax
- Creating a sense of unease and guilt
Is Decluttering for tidiest?
While you may not be the tidiest person naturally (and you don’t have to be!), decluttering is crucial to your productivity and overall mental health. The problem is: every object or element in your vision constantly flights for your attention, making it harder to focus on your task at hand. With every item in our environment, our brain has two options: ignore and filter it out or direct attention.
For most objects and elements, our brain chooses the first option to protect our focus. However, this is a process that drains energy. The more clutter we’re surrounded by, the more energy our brain uses for the filtering process. Our energy is finite, and every bit you use for filtering could’ve been used for more productive purposes such as thinking and problem-solving.
Many people often discover the joys of removing the excess from their lives while travelling down the path of decluttering. This is when a shift in perspective occurs, and the old saying “less is more” truly comes to life. Being a minimalist means removing excess in all areas of life, whether it’s unsubscribing to unwatched channels, creating a capsule wardrobe or removing unnecessary things that no longer add value to your daily life. It frees up space, mentally and physically, for other life priorities such as career, family, friends, goals and dreams.
Minimalism looks different for everyone, and there’s no right or wrong way of doing it. The important thing is not how little things you end up with or how you do it, but how much your mindset and perspective shifts as a result.
