Lately, I’ve been feeling like I need to just get rid of stuff and yes I’m calling it stuff because that’s exactly what it is. This is the time of year that most people talk about spring cleaning and you see many videos on YouTube talking about spring cleaning your clothes, dishes, home and even your life. Spring cleaning is something that you should do more than once a year, but most of us, myself included, only really like about it around this time of year.
There are a lot of benefits to spring cleaning, a lot of things that I haven’t seen many people talk about. So I’m here to let y’all know some of the mental benefits of spring cleaning.
- A Fresh Start.
There is something very relaxing to knowing that you are declaring and getting rid things that no longer gave you any sort of benefits. If you’ve just gotten out of a relationship and you just haven’t brought yourself to get rid of stuff that may remind you of the other person, this is a great time to get rid of these items. This can go for anything, but getting rid of these things will make it feel like a fresh start.
Take a moment and relive the moment that you bought this, then take a moment and remember when the last time you even used it. There is a clarity in remember why and when at the moment. Decluttering can cause you to step back and realize what is important. Clarity is hard to come by sometimes but when cleaning out your life or stuff, you can find closure in the thing you may not have had in prior times.
This sounds like a “no shit” one, but take a moment to think about how it feels when you’ve cleaned out your closet. Now you can move your clothes around again, you can see what you actually have, you can now recognize that maybe you had too much. Spring cleaning can really cause you to realize how open you truly can be, in a mental sense and also in the physical sense.
Have you started your spring cleaning, yet?
