5 Ways to Declutter Your Life | Victoria Jiju
Sometimes life gets on top of you, and it just feels like there is so much going on it's overwhelming. Within this post, you will find 5 ways that will help you de-stress and realign your thoughts. After practicing some of the given ideas, you should feel like some of that stress is lifted off your shoulders. Sometimes, clearing the physical clutter will help you clear out your mental clutter. So here you have it, 5 ways to declutter your life.
1. Go Through Your Emails
We all have inboxes that fill up with subscriptions that we forgot we even signed up to. A weekly newsletter to every retailer and some you've never even shopped at - no thank-you! Take some time out of your day ard re-prioritize your emails, unsubscribe to content you no longer need in your inbox. You can also delete all the junk that you've never opened or needed in the first place. Seeing your emails go from 200 down 10 maybe a little bit more manageable. Even though you were never going to open those other 190 junk emails, seeing the number only being 10 should help your brain stop getting so overwhelmed. As a result, your stress level should come down, even if it's just a smidge.
2. Sort Your Wardrobe
Your wardrobe can become cluttered over time with clothes you don't even wear. You may find yourself buying new clothes and trying to wedge them into a slot in the wardrobe. This can just seem stressful in itself, never being able to find the item you want and getting annoyed by the sheer amount in there. Take some time out to declutter your wardrobe. Try this method: Make three piles one to keep, one to donate, and the last to throw away. That means you get space for all your other or new clothes which makes your brain happier and other people can benefit from the clothes you have donated. Consequently, you take some of the stress out of your life and perform a good deed.
3. Tidy Your Main Space
The space you spend most of your time may vary from person to person. It could be your office space, your bedroom, or the living room, regardless of the space it's time to tidy, organize, and declutter. If the thought of organizing and decluttering your entire house feels overwhelming, don't worry because you just need to do one room. Start by getting rid of any unnecessary things, rubbish, or papers you don't need. Then organize the items you do need accordingly. Having one space you frequently use organized and tidy can help your brain relax and calm down. So what are you waiting for, get decluttering?
4. Sift Through Your Friends
Social media can get very overwhelming, so many people doing so many incredibly cool things. Yet it can also become very stressful and overwhelming very quickly. Have a look at your friends and connections, make sure those are people you want to be connecting with and seeing content from. Allow your brain to breathe and unfriend/unsubscribe to any of those people who no longer bring joy to your life.
5. Cleanse Your Beauty Products
As with everything else on this list sometimes our make-up/beauty products can get a bit out of control. Freebies or samples which you've collected or never used, products that you tried but never liked, or that one forgotten product that just sits at the back of your draw. Start to declutter anything you do not use, keep the products that you use regularly, and allow your products to breathe in all of the newfound space you're going to create.
