    How Purging Your Home Will Help with Your Mental Health

    The importance of purging your home yearly is to eliminate all the clutter accumulated in your home in the past 12 months. Clutter can be a considerable distraction, making you feel overwhelmed. It is essential to take the time to get rid of things that you don't need or use to live a more organized life.

     

    First, let's talk about what purging is. Purging is when you get rid of items that are no longer needed or wanted. The purged items can include clothes, toys, electronics, furniture, and more. Here are some benefits of purging your home: 

    1. Help with mental health by decreasing stress levels and finding things in the house easier. 
    2. It can also lead to increased productivity because of more space for work or other activities that need to be done in the house. 

     

    The process of decluttering is not just about getting rid of things. It is about making space for what matters. How to determine what to declutter and what to keep? Here are a few questions that can help you to decide what to keep and what to give away: 

    1.  Is it sentimental?
    2.  Do I need it for my job?
    3.  How long has it been since I used this item?
    4.  Is it a duplicate of something I already own?
    5.  Can someone else use this item more than me?

     

    Answering these questions will help determine what to keep and what to purge. Here are some tips that will help make the process smooth as possible. It is important to set up a home purging plan, which can help you systematically declutter your home. The following steps you can take to set up a 12-month home purging plan.

     

    See the sample plan below: 

    1. January- Clothes and shoes 
    2. February- Books and magazines
    3. March-Electronic devices
    4. April-Dishes
    5. May-Toys and games

    Some people might think they don't need to purge their homes annually because they don't have much stuff. But the truth is that we accumulate a lot of clutter in our homes without noticing it. Follow this plan each month and donate the items to your local charity or donation center. 

     

    Once you have completed purging your space each month, or year, you will find that you feel more relaxed, and organized. This will contribute to your mental wellbeing. If you are new to purging. Start slow and small. Purge a small closet and see if it makes you feel better and more organized.
