We understand that it’s hard to give things up. Certain things in our homes hold sentimental value. But don’t worry, you don’t have to throw out Grandma’s handmade quilts or your high school yearbooks just yet.
Making the switch to living with less doesn’t have to be a massive undertaking. Small changes can go a long way towards a simpler, less cluttered, and more peaceful life. Here are just a few tips to help you start decluttering today!
Lessons in simplicity
Minimalism, at its core, is a practice meant to make our lives easier. All of us likely own too many trinkets and overfill our busy schedules. Practicing minimalism is a simple way to declutter our homes, calendars, and minds. Living a more minimalist life means fewer decisions and distractions, which frees up valuable mental space and can bring more peace and joy to our daily lives. Owning fewer things may sound like a challenge, but by reevaluating our relationships to material things we can improve our mental wellbeing and happiness.
