Summer is creeping in, and the people around me are finishing up their spring cleaning. After you’re done vacuuming out your car, dusting your shelves, and tidying up your garden you should consider cleaning out your life. I recently went on a self-purge by simplifying my world and I feel a whole lot better!
Here are the 5 things I did to declutter my life. I hope they can help you start your own to-do list!
Go through your clothes. I was holding onto clothes for years because I always thought there would be some sort of occasion I’d need that top or that skirt. I had clothes with price tags still on them that I had bought over a year ago. I went on a huge purge and filled three garbage bags with my clothes and donated them. I honestly feel much better, and my closet looks great!
Unsubscribe to Emails. If you’re still getting emails from stores you haven’t stepped into since 2011, it’s time to check out unroll.me. It’s helped declutter my inbox and unsubscribed to all the junk I was getting. If you like getting emails about deals, create a new folder and send all the advertisements there.
Spend less time on social media. According to statistics the average person spends over five hours a day on social media! FIVE HOURS! Think of all the negativity you may be consuming every day and not realizing it. Don’t waste your day on social media. Turn off your notifications, and delete your lesser used apps. If you put that energy elsewhere you’ll feel so much better.
Make your circle smaller. Some people are toxic. They bring you down by being negative, discouraging you, and requiring too much attention. The people you want in your life should be positive and lift you up! If you tighten up your circle your peace of mind will get bigger. *Another tip: unfollow and delete people on social media you don’t talk too, and those who posts make you feel lousy.
Empty your mind. Clear out all those negative thoughts and remember you have so much to offer. If you are feeling stressed out and overwhelmed add a walk into your daily routine. Make time in your life to free your mind! Learn more about meditation and yoga, I heard they help!
Tackle this before summer starts to have a fresh start. Once you begin you’ll start to feel better and lighten some weight off your shoulders. When you finish whatever is on your to-do list, you’ll be able to start the day with positive energy and ready to do your best because your mind will have more room, and so will your home!
