Easy Ways To Clear Your Clutter

Hello again! In light of this being the first month of a new year, I would like to explain why clearing your clutter is the best way to have a fresh mind and be your most productive self.

Nowadays, we like to keep things that we don't actually need. These things can slowly or quickly build up and become a nuisance.

Annoyingly, when it becomes a nuisance it can actually affect our mental health as well as our physical health.

Below is a list of benefits that I discovered after I cleared away my clutter!


Why you should you clear your clutter!

List of benefits:

- Easier to clean your space since there are fewer things

- Save time looking for things that are lost somewhere in that drawer

- Current objects will have true meaning and a purpose to you

- Become more productive! (That's what this whole blog is about!!!)

- A way to see and promote what you love in your room

- Creates a relaxing environment for you to feel at ease in

- Better sleep!!!

- You can make money from selling the things you no longer need


Physical Clutter

Clearing physical clutter from your desk can work wonders for your productivity! I don't mean removing every object from your desk until you are left with a computer, but having fewer cables and bits of paper laying around can help!

The first step to choosing what to remove is to ask yourself if you really need it.

I ask myself if this thing makes me a better person.

If it doesn't, I donate it or sell it. I have recently been using the Facebook Marketplace and it's super-efficient if you want to sell things fast for some quick cash.

I apply this logic to most things around my room. This, in turn, leads to a healthy environment where I feel that I can actually breathe and have a better nights sleep.


Digital Clutter

Digital clutter is basically any files or information that are online.

The first step is to look at photos. I'm sure we all have thousands of those and some of them we don't really need, like screenshots of a meme that's not current anymore or fifty selfies that are identical.

Next, it's best to look at your downloads on your computer. After cleansing my computer, I managed to free up many gigabytes!

Social media can also be a sort of clutter. Hundreds of notifications that are unread and the feeling of chaos as people are constantly posting.

So, I deleted Facebook and Instagram and redownload them only when I need to contact someone that way.

After a few weeks, you realise you are not missing out on much and feel a lot freer.

Emails, yes, emails. We both know that the red bubble above the white envelope has the number 1,458 over it. Sadly, it's time to turn that into 0.

The best way is to delete everything one by one. But, also unsubscribe from all the newsletters that we are unbothered to leave.

After this, you will feel like you bought a new computer or phone. You will see only your priorities and it will make you less dependent on your phone or computer!

Also, if your job requires you to be on your computer or laptop, having a decluttered one can drastically improve productivity by showing only your work priorities and less social media!



Well, there you have it! I hope these reasons gave you the motivation to declutter.

The best way to declutter your life is to do both a physical and digital cleanse. By stripping useless objects and files, you can save a lot of space and mentally feel better about it!

So, why not try it now with your phone or your laptop?

Thank you for reading and have a productive week!
