Declutter to Help Make Your Space Beautiful, Healthy and Sustainable

Start the New Year off the right way by decluttering so you can enjoy the benefits of a more beautiful, healthier and sustainable interior environment. It doesn’t matter if you live in a spacious house, condominium or apartment, work in an office or from a home office, clutter consumes valuable space and is unhealthy for you. Living and working in functional spaces that help promote long-term good health and well-being should be a priority. You need to declutter to help make your space beautiful, healthy and sustainable.

Clearing the clutter from your home and office will help to improve the indoor environmental quality and will absolutely enhance the aesthetic appeal. Besides clutter being hazardous to your health, it also can affect your physical well-being, making you feel more stressed and even moody at times.

Start decluttering today by using this easy Reduce, Recycle and Reuse Process below:

To get started, take inventory of what you have in each room of your home or workplace and decide whether you keep it, sell it, give it away or throw it away. Anything that hasn’t been worn or used in the last two years should be either sold in a garage sale, passed along to local charities or given to a family in need. Anything that is no longer functional should then be thrown away. The goal is to declutter.

Remember that “throw away” means taking items to local recycling places that will dispose of them in an environmentally friendly way.

The same goes for cans of paint or construction materials that could be used by somebody else in renovating a room or a community space where there is not a budget for new materials.

Adopt the “less is more” mentality. The immediate result of decluttering is a more pleasant and healthier indoor environment. It’s a positive investment of time.
