Decluttering is an art

Decluttering is an emotional process. That is why most of us find it hard.

Decluttering results in peace and quiet: in your house, your cupboard, your car and ultimately in your  mind.

Get some tips on decluttering here.

Decluttering is not just about throwing stuff away, getting rid of things and ruthlessly chucking. It is all about an emotional process where you let go of attachments.

Eckhart Tolle, guru of consciousness and author of ‘The power of now’,  speaks about stuff and how we collect stuff to enhance our identity and that what we have defines who we are…… If what we have defines us, what happens when we get rid of it? It is as if we throw away parts of yourself. That makes decluttering such a difficult process.

However, when you try to throw might be helpful.

Ask the following questions when to decide what to do with ‘stuff’:

  1. Do I really, really love it?
  2. Do I really, really need it?
  3. What does it represent?
  4. How is the loss of this object affecting my life?
  5. What I gain by holding on to this object?
  6. What exactly would I miss by not having this object?
  7. Am I a different person without it?
