DETOX YOUR HOME :: DETOX YOUR LIFE?!
It Truly is Amazing That One of the Top-Selling Books Last Year Was About Organizing Your Home – The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up: The Japanese Art of Decluttering and Organizing
Book by Marie Kondo
People want change! Every day I witness people being completely sick and tired … and sick of it!
Tidying is an act of restoring stability among individuals, the house they reside in, as well as their possessions. As human beings, we can solely take care and cherish quite a limited number of things at the same time and according to this book, the best measure for deciding on what to keep and what to do away with your items is whether keeping it will provide you with joy. Try this simple task next time you are on a cleaning spree — simply ask yourself; “does this bring me joy?” If it’s a clear no, give it to outstanding charities like www.thegreenchair.org or to The Me Fine Foundation. You got this :: Take the time to invest in your psychological health for your future health of your future self.
When we reduce what we own and essentially detox our house, it also has a detoxing effect on our bodies as well! My husband, John was once an Auctioneer and Estate Liquidator — he has helped countless numbers of people reclaim their life by letting go of STUFF — according to John, STUFF IS STRESS.
Stuff can truly be toxic, and toxins can wreak mayhem on our bodies, our cellular health, as well as the environment AND our own personal environment. Ditching the ready-made, chemical-laden food items in our eating habits is not enough ; we have to get rid of the toxins that have built up over the years too , which range from domestic cleaning products to cooking utensils and cosmetics (my favorite gluten free and non-toxic cosmetic company by the way is Afterglow Cosmetics). Each day we must choose to Empty the Bucket Faster Than We Fill It Up and limit our exposure to domestic contaminants. This activity helps us reboot our metabolism, minimize hormonal threats and make us feel like rock stars!
When we put our house in order, the air inside becomes fresh and clean. Reducing the amount of stuff in our space reduces the amount of dust, and we actually clean more often. Since clutter has been eliminated, it becomes easier to clean and we do it more thoroughly. When our space is completely clean, we do not have to worry about tidying and we are free to focus on the next issue that is important to our lives. Be reminded that the existence of an item without a home multiplies the chances that your space will become cluttered again. This I know all too well 😉 Yerdle and OfferUp are a couple of great Aps to keep you motivated to drop your “STUFF STRESS”.
It is truly “magic” and “life-changing” to put our house in order. It allows up to be closer to homeostasis so we may live in our natural state of “beingness” — closer to our God-given potential and choosing things that bring us joy, allowing us to cherish what is truly precious in our lives. :: Try it 🙂 – Give it, toss it, donate it and watch your energy rebound 🙂
