|Clutter Comes in all shapes and sizes. And is not only bad for your mental health but is also bad for your physical health. The move this month took me out of the 900 square foot office into a 200 square foot office after being in the same space for 14 years. I pride myself in keeping a space that has been designed from the principles of feng shui and allows energy to freely flow through it. Clutter impedes that flow. I never realized how ‘impeded’ I was!!! The move has reinforced much in my life.
Clutter can be bad for your physical health. Too much of it can cause a fire hazard. If clutter prevents you from being able to clean often, dust, mold and mildew can accumulate. This is bad for allergies and asthma.
Clutter is bad for your ability to manage your time efficiently and effectively. When there is too much in the way, knowing where something is when you want it is virtually impossible.
Clutter also becomes a mental deficit. It drains energy and the ability to process and complete work. When people start working their way through clutter, their attitude improves and their energy rises.
I’m followed this simple rule as we cleaned out the offices:
Do I love it? Do I Use It? Will it fit? No? Then, LOSE IT…I can not believe the energy in the new office because of this simple rule!!!!!!!
What pile can you take care of today to start increasing that energy and your health for yourself?
