We often hear of decluterring. How does it work? How do you get started?
“Decluttering” is an English term that means “to eliminate the superfluous”, “to get rid of clutter”. Through decluttering you get rid of everything you don’t use, everything “extra”!
According to some studies, this practice has positive implications also on a psychological level.
Decluterring became famous thanks to the book “The Magic Power of Tidying” by Marie Kondo.
How do you proceed?
The password, to carry out a good decluttering activity, is “organization”.
Organize your space and your time.
Start thinking about what in your home, closet or life you think is superfluous.
The first step is to analyze your objects, your possessions, everything that you have not used for a long time and is, therefore, in “excess”.
Choose a room, a corner of your home where you can temporarily store the objects you no longer use.
We don’t necessarily talk about clothes, shoes or clothing. Study your home and decide what, in your opinion, is no longer essential.
Divide your items into boxes of various kinds. Organizing everything in an orderly and precise way can help you get rid of those objects that you no longer care about having with you.
Remember that you are not obliged to throw these items away. You can give a “second life” to those goods that are no longer essential for you: you can decide to sell or donate them.
Why is decluttering good for you?
According to some studies, getting rid of the superfluous helps us, not only in terms of space but also psychologically.
A tidy house gives us a feeling of mental order as well.
We often keep some objects with us only because we are emotionally attached to the person who gave them to us. This does not help our mind to relax and be at peace.
