Our lives seem to get cluttered almost automatically. There’s so much going on and so many ways for clutter to creep in, almost unnoticed, that before long you’re swamped with clutter.
Check out these easy ways to declutter your life:
It’s easy to let email newsletters and other junk clutter up your inbox.
Before you automatically go to press delete any regular message that isn’t from a friend or work colleague or family member, scroll to the bottom and check whether there’s an “unsubscribe” button.
If there is, click it and you’ll have decluttered that message from your inbox.
Do that with all the unwanted emails you get – ideally combined with a junk filter – and you’ll have decluttered your inbox.
You’ll probably need to do this exercise regularly as emails have a habit of re-arriving.
Clean your desk or other regular work area
You probably spend quite a bit of time at your desk.
If there are piles of paper, folders and other assorted junk, set aside half an hour or so to declutter the area.
You’ll be amazed at how this extra clear space frees up so much more than just the desk you’ve spring cleaned.
Do this with any other place you regularly use – 30 minutes is the kind of time most of us can resign ourselves to committing to before we know we’ll get fed up with the decluttering process. Do that a few times a week and you’ll soon be decluttered in all the areas you regularly use.
Stop doing stuff just “because”
There’s often stuff we do in our lives that we do because we’ve always done it.
Even though if you were questioned as to why you’re doing whatever it is, you’d have no real answer.
Work out wherever this applies in your life and adjust what you do accordingly. Maybe cut down gradually on the activity, maybe go cold turkey on it.
I did that with daily newspapers a few years ago and freed up lots of time, got rid of lots of negativity and saved money all in one simple act of no longer buying a daily newspaper.
What could you stop doing in your life that would have the same effect?
Declutter your mind
This is probably the scariest of the things you need to do.
And at first glance it may seem difficult.
But that’s only if you don’t get any help.
Your mind is mostly controlled at a subconscious level: you;re not asking your heart to beat every second or so, you’re not usually telling yourself to breathe.
The same happens with almost everything else in your mind: it’s not done at a conscious level.
So the easiest way to declutter your mind is to work at a subconscious level.
And by far the easiest way to do that is with hypnosis.
All you do is listen to a short hypnosis track a few times and let it work hand in hand with your subconscious mind to declutter your mind.
