DECLUTTER THE CLUTTER The phrase, “A cluttered house is a cluttered mind” is true. Look at your house, your office and/or your car. Is it difficult to even think pass the mess that consumes your space?. This week, the goal is to declutter. The task can seem overwhelming, but Be BETTER would like to share some helpful tips. Everyday, do one simple five minute task to declutter your “home,” in order to declutter your mind.

Here’s one tip to get you started, drawn from Leo Babauta’s article, “18 Five-Minute Decluttering Tips to Start Conquering Your Mess”: http://zenhabits.net/18-five-minute-decluttering-tips-to-start-conquering-your-mess/ 

Pick up 5 things, and find places for them. These should be things that you actually use, but that you just seem to put anywhere, because they don’t have good places. If you don’t know exactly where things belong, you have to designate a good spot. Take a minute to think it through — where would be a good spot? Then always put those things in those spots when you’re done using them. Do this for everything in your home, a few things at a time.”

This, and Babauta’s 17 other great tips, will help you start to declutter your life. They are totally motivating.
