Clear the Path to a Fresh New Year

The New Year offers an opportunity to make a fresh start. Gone are the challenges of the year past, and ahead lie the shiny new possibilities.

To clear the path, sometimes we have to clear our environment. Creative and confident people need space in order to function well, and an overstuffed house or an overscheduled schedule leaves little room to breathe. In order to feel calm, it is essential to have clear spaces, and that can mean getting rid of the clutter that is standing in your way.

Some people might call this minimalism, others may call it a zen-like style of living. Either way, you can exponentially improve your lifestyle by clearing out clutter.

Here are just some of the benefits of having less stuff:

  • Reduced distractions:
    Having fewer items to look at or take care of lessens the everyday stress levels and allows you to feel a sense of serenity in your home.
  • More aesthetically pleasing:
    Instead of packing your home full, curate your rooms to provide a beautiful and soothing environment. Display only those objects that bring you joy, and find homes for the rest.
  • Easier to care for:
    Fewer possessions need less of your time to clean, arrange and repair. You have more time to be creative or enjoy other parts of your life.

Where to begin:

Begin with just one room at a time. The bathroom might be the easiest. Remove or store anything from sight that is not essential, and create a soothing palette of colors. You will find yourself relaxing every time you step inside.

Next, take on the master bedroom. This should be your sanctuary from life; your private and serene space. Clear off surfaces, cull items from closets and drawers to donate, remove excess furniture and refresh your bedroom with fresh linens. Some people even recommend removing electronic devices that emit light in order to allow for better sleep.

Once you begin the clearing process, you will want to take it into other areas in your home (or office). You will be pleased by the calming effect it will have on you and your family. But be forewarned: once the clutter is gone, you may find that you have a lot more time on your hands for the important things in life. And as Martha Stewart likes to say, that’s a good thing.
