Our living, work, and mental space have a definite impact on our well being. If my house, classroom, car, closet, bedroom, mind are a mess then I am probably not getting the most restful sleep possible.
It is finally Spring. What a nice time to clean, organize, and de-clutter our spaces. There are plenty of books and articles out there on this subject. The important thing is to not get overwhelmed. Remember the earlier post about baby steps? Any little thing you do that cleans, organizes, simplifies, and streamlines your life is a step in the right direction.
Get out your journal and write down some things you can do. Envision your clean, uncluttered environment as if it is already that way now. Enjoy the peace and solace of that vision. Then take action. Even if it is just one thing (like giving that sweater away that you never wear anymore), you will feel better. It is very cleansing to get rid of clutter.
The universe abhors a vacuum. By getting rid of the things that no longer please and nurture you, you are making room in your life for opportunities and better things . A bonus too is that a clean orderly bedroom will promote more restful sleep!
