Take a step back and objectively assess the current state of your space. Mindful decluttering involves a deliberate and present approach to creating a clutter-free space. Begin by acknowledging the clutter that is there without judgment. Reflect on the emotional and mental impact the current state of the space might have on you and your clients.
A bit like setting off on a journey without a map, having no idea where you’re going or when you need to get there will lead to problems. So before you start your declutter project, sit down and get focused through visualisation, meditation or a to-do list. Or maybe all three.
Spend about 10 minutes doing this and then write down your goals and intentions. These can be simple – just focus on how you’d like your home to look, how it will feel and what you’ll be able to do once it’s finished that you can’t do right now.
Here are some ideas for you:
• I will create more order and harmony in my bedroom.
• I’ll have a clear head having dealt with the clutter and no longer have to keep thinking about it.
• I’ll feel good when I walk through the bedroom door.
• I want to make a big change in my life – the first step to the new me.
Now write down your goals and intentions here and keep it somewhere prominent while you are decluttering.
