It can often feel like our lives are messy, cluttered, overwhelming, scattered.
Like a house filled with clutter, our lives can feel like a huge mess.
Today I’d like to share an idea for getting things in order: just as I recommend for decluttering your house, create a place for everything that matters to you.
In our physical houses, things can get messy when we just put things in random places. So when we declutter, it’s not just about getting rid of things we don’t want — it’s also about finding a home for everything we do want. A place for everything.
Once we have a home for each item, it’s a matter of training ourselves to put them back where they belong. And once this is in place, things can feel much more sane. It’s not about keeping to a perfect system, it’s about knowing where things go, and then allowing ourselves to relax into that structure.
What if we could apply the same idea to everything else in our lives? If something is worth being in our lives, doesn’t it deserve to have a place?.
