I hope everyone who has been following along has had a productive first week of the Declutter Your Life challenge! In addition to getting rid of things you no longer need, maybe you learned a few things about yourself. I learned that if I don’t make the effort to sort through things, I will literally hang on to anything and everything. Some items are particularly therapeutic to get rid of–anything that has a negative memory attached to it. Every unnecessary thing that gets tossed makes me feel a little more tranquil.
So, what are we doing for week 2? We will continue to declutter physical space for ~10 minutes each day to keep reinforcing the habit. In addition, find another area of your life to declutter. I’m planning to keep better track of how I spend my time each day so I can cut out the time-sucks and be more efficient. Note to self: you don’t need to check your phone every 5 minutes. You just get distracted and lose focus on the task at hand.
Good luck and see you next week!
