With the new year being just a few days away, this is the perfect opportunity to clear clutter for the mind, body, and soul by clearing out what no longer serves you in a positive way. Letting go of the old, worn out or stale is a powerful action that creates new space for fresh, beautiful, new beginnings!
Begin by getting rid of all forms of clutter. When your space is in order, your thinking will be clearer and allow space for positive energy to flow. It will also enable your environment to be a healthier and happier place. Those things, people, or ideas that once served a useful purpose in our lives, but now are no longer useful, get rid of them! For example, if you look in your pantry, you are likely to find some items that expired a long time ago. These things are not safe to eat, and you will never use them, but for some reason, they remain on the shelf taking up valuable space. Look in your closet. There are probably clothes in there that you know you will never wear again. But, year after year, they remain in your closet taking up valuable space and leaving a cluttered mess. A good rule to follow is if you have not used an item in the past 12 months, get rid of it. This applies to clothing, household appliances, and outdoor equipment.
There is also mental clutter that clogs our brains with old ideas and memories that do not serve us well. If we don’t clear the clutter from our lives, we aren’t able to let new feelings, experiences, projects, visions, and relationships flow in. We often can become so focused on wanting to add so much more to our lives that we don’t realize that what we get rid of can have the most profound impact of all.
Cleanse your soul by praying and meditating every day, even if it is just for a few minutes. Sit quietly for a few moments. Learn just to be still with yourself. As you do this, focus on your breathing by breathing in positive thoughts and breathing out negative thoughts. Meditation has been shown to lower blood pressure and improves overall health. I truly believe that spending time daily in prayer and meditation is uplifting and cleansing the soul.
Here are a few other tips to clear the clutter from your life:
- Let go of what’s draining you
- Get rid of energy zappers
- Detox your toxic relationships
Now is a perfect time to clear the clutter, mentally, physically, and spiritually by letting go of the past and releasing old habits and holds we have on our lives. By doing this, we are allowing for new things to flow in its place.
Remember… “Have nothing in your house that you do not know to be useful, or believe to be beautiful.” – William Morris
