If you are anything like me, you have too much crap. Too many coupons lying around that you’ll never use, too many magazines that you’ve already read (but might need to refer to later for useful tips) and too many clothes in your closet that you haven’t worn in six months or will never wear.
Get rid of all of the junk cluttering up your home, your car and anywhere else you keep it. Clean up your space, clean up your mind.
I’m sure you’ve done the deep, spring clean on the house once or twice a year. That time is coming up again. Did you ever notice how much more relaxed you feel when you plop down on your fresh sofa or favorite chair and gaze at your clean home? You feel peaceful, relaxed, maybe even energized.
It’s funny how a clean, clutter free home coincides with a clean, clutter free mind. And a clean, clutter free mind helps you focus. You know where everything is now. You have put it in its proper place. When you don’t have to rip the house or apartment to shreds looking for keys or a paper you feel more relaxed.
Where are the keys? Oh, they are on the key hook. Easy.
Where is that credit card statement? Right! It’s in the file drawer. Simple.
If you have clothes you don’t or won’t wear, but can’t bear to throw them away, donate them. You’ll be helping out a lot of people and feel good about yourself.
If you’ve got way too many magazines lying around that you’ve read but (gasp!) can’t stomach throwing in the trash, donate them to your local gym. Better yet, you can donate them to troops overseas. There is a site called Noanie.com with information on how to get started on donating magazines.
When we free up our living space, we free up our mind space.
Meditation for the day: I un-clutter my space so that I may un-clutter my mind.
