Clear the Clutter

There is plenty of chaos around us that is beyond our control. What we do have, is control of our own environment. A neat, tidy and organized home is good for the soul. (After all, would you even navigate this website if it wasn’t clean and organized?) Start decluttering by purging the things you don’t need. If it isn’t useful or beautiful, then throw it out. Decluttering your home will help you declutter your life. There is a correlation.
Living with less and being content with our needs is truly a skill. The market-driven environment around us bombards us daily with the latest and greatest.  It’s true that we do find a short feeling of happiness when we accumalate stuff. But that feeling is fleeting and leaves us empty.

Before bringing anything into your home, ask yourself, “Do I have a place to store this? Is this worth cleaning/maintaining? Will this make my life easier?” If you have answered ‘no’ to any one of those questions, then simply let it go. It would qualify as a ‘want’ and not as a ‘need.’

“The secret of happiness is not found in seeking more, but in developing the capacity to enjoy less.”
