Throwing things away may seem a little intimidating at first. But when you get into it, I can assure you that not only it is easy, it’s also relieving and refreshing.
A good rule when trying to decide either to keep or throw away is to keep things you know to be useful or believe to be beautiful. Marie Kondo teaches us that the best way to find beauty is to ask if what we own sparks joy? And If not, just let it go. Easy!
So now, it’s a time for you to get your hands dirty and actually start doing it! You may choose to shut down from the rest of the world for a whole weekend and declutter your home or allocate a few hours a day to tackle each area. But you’ll have to go through everything, and I mean everything you own! Get rid of the things you no longer need or give them away to charity and keep only the things that are necessary or sparks joy!
I’m not suggesting you throw away everything you own, rather, trimming away the unnecessary things which are probably causing you more stress and distraction than good. I am only suggesting to reduce the sheer amount of possessions in order to really appreciate the things you love. Living with intention.
