What does your environment say about you?

Is your environment making you think or cringe?  When you look at your room, do you feel peaceful or do you cry?

I am in the process of moving and am faced with this dilemma daily.  There are days when I just want to give up and torch the place.  Most of the time, I can’t bear to part with any of my belongings.  There are just so many of them. 

The situation is simple, it does not matter how much you love your stuff or not.  If it is cluttered, your brain does not function properly.  Your productivity suffers.  So what do you do?  If you are live in complete chaos, take it slow, but do it.  Take one corner of one room per day.  The next day take the next corner, in the same room.  Do not stop until you finish with that room and then go to the next room in the house.

If you are lucky enough to have people helping you, take advantage of them and know one room out per day.  Maybe pick one day per weekend to do it in. 

However you do it, give yourself a break.  Pat yourself in the back for getting something done every day and celebrate when you finish an area.  Just don’t buy anything that will clutter it up again.
