“The best way to find out what we really need is to get rid of what we don’t.”
simple living blog series
New year, a new you. After a holiday timeframe of indulgence, obligations and events there’s no time better to work towards a clear mind. This simple living blog series is designed to take small steps that will lead to a more organized life and mindspace. We are starting with steps to clearing clutter fast and will build from there, hopefully ending with life changing habits.
clearing clutter fast
Email. Ugh. This is a huge issue for me. I have somehow wound up on many mailing lists. I’m inundated daily with hundreds of emails I do not need. This excess makes my brain cluttered and I can’t see the emails that are the priority.
Unsubscribe from emails you don’t need. Go through and say goodbye to all of them. Not only will this prioritize your inbox, it will save you from needless shopping, distraction and information being thrown your way. It brings you back in control of your day and needs.
You can always re-subscribe should you find you want that information. But for the purpose of this exercise, get rid of as much as you can. The point is to invite back into your life what you want. You will only know if you want or need something until you let it go. So unsubscribe away.
Repeat Step 1 of the Simplify Yo’ Life blog series by taking a trash bag and filling it up with whatever is in your home, car or workspace. You will be repeating this every day.
Exception: please don’t unsubscribe from my email. Unless you promise to come visit on occasion if you do. Ha!
