How Decluttering Can Give You a New Lease On Life

We all know the feeling of being inside on a cold wintery day, watching the hours go past. For many of us, that’s what this winter will hold, as the weather turns for the worse. But why do we have to let the days waste away? Using this winter to get a hold on the clutter that might be building in your home will not only make the days feel a little bit warmer, but will transfer into other aspects of your life.

Whenever we come home to a messy house, we already feel like a failure. Our home is meant to be our sanctuary, and letting it get messy is never a good feeling. However, the time is now to recapture the mess, and turn your living space into exactly that – a living, breathing representation of who you want to be, rather than a reminder of past mistakes. After all, there’s no time like the present to recapture a hold of those things that you hold dear.

Using a handy KonMari checklist can help even the most unorganised of us get a hold of things. Just go through the list, and make sure you’re ticking things off, step by step. You might not think that you can get it all done in a day, and that’s ok. The most important thing is to be making sure each day isn’t a zero sum day. If you can achieve one thing per day when it comes to decluttering your house, you’ll soon find your life improving. After all, the home is an extension of who we are, and what we’re projecting to the world.

 Here at A Mindful Home, we know how important decluttering can be to one’s life. If you’re looking to make a change this winter, contact us at and find out how we can help you change for the better.
