Getting rid of clutter develops your mind.

November 15, 2019

How do you handle clutter?

It’s been busy in my personal corner this week; we took on a big project to do some much-needed work around our place.

And one of the biggest lessons I’ve learnt is that it takes a special skill to deal with workmen to get what you want!

But the more impactful experience I had was looking around the house and realising what amount of clutter and stuff we’ve managed to accumulate that we don’t really need – so NOT delivering any value (or unlikely to do so in future).

Get Rid of Unnecessary Clutter!

Have you been in that place too? Think about it – old clothes that you don’t wear;  or books you no longer read; and don’t plan to keep in your library?

Old gadgets that are not working but you always planned to fix ‘soon’, and its now 5 years later but still taking space in the cabinet?

You see, hoarding, keeping things – even those past their useful period – is what we, as humans do naturally.

We are very reluctant to ‘let go’.

It has some benefits, of course, but sometimes its a weight we should get rid off – to allow fresh new experiences or even relationships develop.

So that’s what I’m doing, my friend. Decluttering my space, my mind and developing myself. What about you?

Medically Speaking

Interestingly, this week we published an article about Glaucoma, the silent disease. Have you heard about this condition?

Well, whether you have or not – please take a couple of minutes and read this because we identify who could be at risk – and what you should do.

Hopefully, you find it useful or can share with a friend – let me know what you think in the comments below, too.  

Until next time, I wish you a healthy and happy week!
