It’s very common to have clutter in our shelves and cupboards but clutter stagnates the energy flow in our home. It can cloud our minds and make us feel restless. It stops us from living life to its full potential. So, keep the space around you free of clutter. Below are some pointers on decluttering.
- Remove all the clutter from cupboards, wardrobes, and corners.
- Donate or throw all those objects you did not use even once in the last 3 years. If you did not use something even once in 3 years, it means you don’t need it anymore. These unused objects occupy the space and need maintenance. So, it is a smart thing to let go of these unused objects.
- Ensure there are no piles or things falling off.
When you start decluttering your home, initially it may feel quite overwhelming but stick with the process and patiently declutter. Declutter your home phase by phase if you are doing it for the first time. Once you complete the decluttering process, you will experience greater levels of peace and clarity in thinking. So, it’s worth your time and energy.

- Bring in the elements of nature like rivers, trees, greenery, etc, into the space around you. Nature can easily brighten up the mood.
Organize the space:
When the home is disorganized, our time goes wasted in searching for things and it causes stress. It also disturbs the energies of the home and creates restlessness. So, it is essential to keep the space around us organized. Below are some pointers on organizing.

Address leakages and broken objects:
Let go of all those broken objects or get them repaired. A broken object blocks the positive energy. So, address them as a priority. If there are any leakages in the home, address them immediately. Keep the things around you functional.
