There is an arch nemesis of Feng Shui. It is messy, unorganized and chaotic. Its name is CLUTTER and it must be destroyed! Clutter sneaks up on us, piling up over time causing stagnant energy and eventually impacting our dayto-
day lives. Depending on where clutter is located in your home, it can negatively impact certain areas in your life.
Luckily, reducing clutter has the opposite effect and is conducive to harmony and peace. Three basic principles to helping you get started with decluttering are as follows: love it then keep it, donate it if you haven’t used it in a year, and trash it if it is broken. Here are some tips in helping you achieve more peace and harmony in your home.
First, do not get overwhelmed if there is too much clutter. As the old question goes, “How do you eat an elephant?” One bite at a time! Start with a single room—usually the master bedroom, as this is a place that should be your sanctuary and promotes rest and relaxation. Start with the closet and clear out anything unworn in the past year. Storage underneath the bed is bad Feng Shui as it blocks a good night’s sleep; The shoes under your bed can be the cause of your
racing thoughts at night. Those of us who work from home can also be impacted by clutter. A cluttered desk or workspace can block our thinking and reduce our productivity. Keep these areas clear to stay on track with your current projects.
