Mental Health And Wellness – Are You Being Weighed Down By Your Fat House?

What’s your de-cluttering style? Do you just ignore that build up on the dining room table, the end of the bed, the floor of the garage and anywhere else you accumulate stuff? Do you move piles from one room to the next or do you have a ‘junk’ room, even a junk draw?

Now given that my life is pretty full and I wanted to sort through my whole house and garage this approach was not working so well for me, let’s face it that would take me a substantial block of time. The outcome of this was that I just never got started, the clutter remained and so did the frustration.

Sometimes we find ourselves feeling overwhelmed by the ‘clutter’ in our lives and this has an impact in ways we don’t even imagine; it can even have an impact on our mental health and wellness.

Eventually I decided that even though my home would never have been seen by others as a mess, the toll it was taking on my own metal health and wellness was certainly not congruent with living an outrageously healthy life.

I realized I needed to start breaking things down into smaller bite sized pieces, small tasks that I could accomplish in a short period of time and start to feel good about making progress.

It is so nice to go to the pantry and be able to see what’s in there. The fridge is a weekly task we do just before we go shopping it serves 2 purposes, firstly we get rid of anything that needs to go and secondly we know what we already have and avoid buying more than we need. The next task was the linen cupboard, I thought it would take me ages however it took very little time and I was able to donate our excess sheets and towels to a local charity for recycling.

Each time I do one of these tasks I find myself going to open the cupboard just to look at how nice and neat it is, to be honest I often take other members of the family with me so they can admire my handy work, and get the clue to keep it tidy, I hope!

In a recent de-cluttering mood, I decided to clean out my wallet , amazing what you find in amongst all those receipts. I had a ticket I had purchased for a Lotto draw a few weeks ago, I took it to the newsagents and guess what? Yep it was a winner $30.65. So whilst this is not going to see me retiring on a tropical island, I did take it as a sign that I was on the right path.
