In our daily life, we accumulate a unconsciently lot of stuff which we don’t really need without noticing it is becoming deep-rooted addiction. It has a negative impact not only on the environment but also on our daily lives, it weighing us down.

My Personal experience
As I grew up in a home relatively cluttered, I enjoy this moment when my mum helped me taking away stuff that covered my bedroom, It was, actually, fun. Because the atmosphere in my room is getting lighter.
Becoming an adult, I have always lived in apartments, and generally, the beautiful thing about small-space living is that it can force you to get rid of the things you don’t actually use or need more often.
when I encounter clutter, I feel overwhelmed, anxious and disorganized. and it is really hard to relax when you are at home and harder to be productive when you are at work.
It is not easy to sacrifice your belonging stuff but I assure you that decluttering will certainly make you feel a whole lot better!
Best strategies for decluttering
There is a method that the expert Marie Kondo explains in her book – which I urge you to read ” The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up ”. At the heart of Marie Kondo’s method is the question: Does this object/book/article of clothing/etc. spark joy? If it doesn’t, remove it. So only your most precious treasures remain.
Personally, I use a technique that worked well with me: you make three categories:
Pick a room and go through everything. If you haven’t used it or looked at it in six months, put it in the DONATE or TRASH category. If you’re putting it in the SAVE category, ask yourself if it really feels special or if you’re keeping it because you feel like you should.
I kept several objects as “memories” for years. I carried them with me from apartment to apartment like dead weight, thinking that maybe someday someone might be interested in seeing them. However, I concluded how wrong this idea was when my mum passed away a few years ago. she left behind two rooms completely overloaded with stuff. Yet it doesn’t matter as much as she thinks it does.
I sincerely hope that this article has provided you with a useful framework and practical tips that allow you to heal and make the very best of your space. It is such a worthwhile pursuit, and I wish you all the best as you embark on it.
