The benefits of decluttering go beyond just the tangible benefits of a clutter-free, tidy home. Decluttering can become an important way to practice self-care because it helps you take control of your home, your belongings and your life to improve your overall wellbeing.
Here are a few examples of the ways decluttering is important for self-care by helping to improve your overall wellbeing and quality of life:
The more surfaces you can create, the more space you have, the easier it is to relax into that space. Tackle one room at a time and see how much more calming it is to use when all the clutter is gone. Relaxation is great for our health and wellbeing and helps reduce stress levels. Less clutter means less stress too.
The more clutter you have, the more mental power it takes to think about it. Few people walk into a cluttered space and feel relaxed and at ease there. Quite the opposite.
So, by decluttering a space, however big or small, you’ll waste less mental power thinking about it.
You’ll spend less time cleaning, tidying and taking care of things you own, simply because there’s less of it.
More ‘me’ time
Declutter your mind and body with ‘me’ time. Use this time to simply reconnect with Mother Nature. The Earth is a source of natural healing energy and has its own energy in the form of a mild ‘negative’ charge. Tap into the streams of electrons from the Earth with Nikken’s KenkoGround® (88011). A conductive mat that works by connecting you to the Earth’s natural charge – helping restore a healthful natural balance.
Are there things you want to do and achieve, yet you never seem to have the energy?
Less stuff means less time and less energy required to manage it, freeing up more energy and attention to devote to what matters most to you.
Freeing space in your immediate surroundings frees space in your mind too1. As the space opens, so will your mind and you’ll find you have far more time and energy to focus on what you want to do.
Maybe you are surprised at how closely clutter is associated with your state of mind. There are other ways you can look after the wellness of your mind on a daily basis too including through diet…
Dr. Yoshihide Hagiwara, the discoverer of barley grass, talks about the benefits of Green Barley and how this rich nutrient could help ‘remove mental stress’ – in his best-selling book Green Barley Essence.2
Barbara Simonsohn writes – ‘Good for the Brain and the Mood! Barley grass contains substantial amounts of important amino acids. One hundred grams of barley grass juice powder contains approximately 240 mg of glutamic acid, an amino acid important for neural transmission and 110 mg of phenylamine. With the latter amino acid promoting vitality and mental agility.’ 3
