Be Ruthless When it comes to Decluttering– Remember, if you don’t love it or you don’t use it, its clutter. It’s the perfect time to embrace the Feng Shui art of uncluttered living. Feng Shui teaches that if energy can easily flow through a room, your life will be more harmonious and happy–and clutter is an obstacle to reaching a relaxed and calm state. Make it your quest to be ruthless when it comes to your decluttering home. You’ll have less to dust, less clutter to look at, an easier time finding the things you do use and less stress in your life.
Donate or sell things you don’t use – Kill two birds with one stone. Give back, and remove excess in your life.
Make it fun- Turn up the music, sing and dance along to your busy work. Delegate tasks to family members and reward everyone in the end with a trip to the park or a movie and pizza!
Eliminate distractions– NO T.V or Phones. Focus and be determined to cleanse and get ready for this next chapter. You’ll feel better taking the rest of the world on once you’ve finished cleansing the center of your life – your home.
Make a checklist– We all know that completing an objective with a list of how to get there is that much easier to complete.
Don’t forget about the INSIDES of bins, drawers and closets. While organizing the insides of boxes, bins, baskets and drawers, wipe them down to remove all the dust and gunk that builds up over time. You won’t believe how good you’ll feel afterwards knowing how spick and span even the little things are.
Don’t forget about the OUTSIDES; enjoy the weather while spring cleaning the dead branches, leaves and muck around your home.
Open the Windows- Before, during and after your cleaning sessions, keep the windows open to allow fresh air into your home. It refreshes and invigorates you as you clean as well as cleanses the stale air in your home as your moving things about.
