Have you heard the saying that a tidy space reflects a tidy mind?
Have a look around you and see what is there. Are you deeply happy in the space you are in?
Our environments have a huge impact on our mental well being and for many people, if the space is cluttered and disorganised, it could be reflecting or affecting the mind.
How can we fix this? Declutter of course!! Go through your things and get rid of anything that gives you a bad memory or makes you feel bad about yourself.
Let go of the ‘when I loose weight, I’ll fit into this and that’, let go of the ‘one day I’ll make this or do this’ and the ‘I’ll fix this’.
Don’t get me wrong, if you are going to, then do it, take control and set some time aside to do it but look deep within yourself, if you are not, then let go and give yourself that extra headspace.
If something has got sentimental value but is broken beyond repair, then take a photo of it. If you love a dress because you have great memories of when you wore it but doesn’t fit any more, take a photo of it.
Can you think of examples of things you need to let go of but haven’t because of how it makes you feel? Or the memories you have because of it?
You will also be amazed that through letting go of physical things, you will find your mind will be freer and have more space for new things – physically and mentally. Perhaps new opportunities? New hobbies? New friends? A new look showing the new confident you
Photographing these objects can help you keep those feelings and memories without taking up physical space.
Give yourself a break and free yourself up from unwanted things in your life. Remember, taking photos of things can help you let go
Let me know if this has been helpful; What have you let go of physically but kept a photo for emotional reasons?
