Life is a journey that is full of new experiences and new challenges. Full of chaos and often no time for a recharge. We live in a world that is driven by social media and the news that constantly project hashtags like #nevernotworking or #hustlehard. Often times, we’re so busy that we don’t find the time to stop and figure out how to make our lives a little less hectic. So what is the best way to clean up your life all while living in a time-period where we’re constantly on-the-go? How about challenge yourself to do something that you’ve never tried before?

Maybe push yourself to face your personal fears while also challenging yourself to do something specific that will benefit you in the long run. Let’s take this example: did you know that there are 300,000 items in the average American home? That number can be overwhelming for some people, but unfortunately it is true. It’s okay for us as humans to take a step back and consider our spending or consumption patterns. There are many easy solutions for you to de-clutter your mind while de-cluttering your home of unnecessary items.

Best selling author, tidying expert, and star of Netflix’s hit show, “Tidying Up With Marie Kondo,” Marie Kondo  has been a mesmerized with organizing since her early childhood. She focuses on transforming your home from one of disarray to a space of calmness and serenity all by using the KonMari Method. This one-of-a-kind method promotes tidying by category – not by location – starting with clothing, then moving on to books, papers, komono (miscellaneous item), and finally, sentimental items. She preaches to “keep only those things that speak to the heart, and discard  items that no longer spark joy. Thank them for their service  – then let them go.” She provides a simple, yet important reminder to challenge ourselves to keep our homes and mind clear of anything that does not provide us a healthy connection.

Once you’ve sorted out which clothes or home items are causing “clutter,” there are other ways to clean up your life. Assess all parts of your life and see where subtle changes can be made. Try cutting out needlessly exhausting activities, leave that boring job that’s making your brain fry to pieces, or delete those draining people that do not add any sense of purpose to your life. Make it a habit to rid any and everything in which you do not feel a connection to. Hold yourself and loved ones around you accountable for bringing attention to the areas of life (personal, academic, and professional) that you are not happy with. For your well-being and sanity, it is critically important to decide who or what you want to be something to and who or what you give your energy to. You can’t be something to everything and everyone.

Now that you have a sense of how the littlest things can help you clean up your life, take a moment to think to yourself about what you will start with. Let’s review a few ways for you to get started on your cleansing journey:

  • Take a moment to de-clutter your closet or home
  • Make a pile of your clothes and decide which items only bring you joy (keep only those items)
  • Sell any clothing or items that add no value to your life
  • Write down a monthly goal about what aspects of your professional, personal or academic life that need “cleansing” and act on it
  • Join a friend or family member in a social media cleanse for a week straight
  • Free your mind of all negative energy by engaging in yoga or mediation

Starting small is okay. Small goals can be just as important as big goals. Take a long, hard look at your family, friends and job. Sort through the tasks that you’re no longer interested in or dedicating any time to. Go through the people that you no longer want to surround yourself with. A messy life will drain you of your most important resource: your energy!
