You got Reducing Waste!
You love the environment, love spending time outside, want to help, but feel like you don't have the time, resources, or you don't know how to start. You're tired of spending time running errands to pick up disposable paper towels, tissues, cleaning products, etc. You're tired of cleaning up wrappers all around the house and the car. And let's not even start on the plastic bag pile you've got in your closet or under your sink.
While reducing waste may not be an obvious solution to reducing mental clutter, it can play a big role, and is a great place to start!
Reducing waste can reduce mental clutter through:
-Saving money (stress a little less about money)
-Gaining back time spent on running errands all the time
-Less clutter from excess packaging and impulse buys (looking at you, Target)
-Getting into an overall 'reduce' mindset
So now, where to start?

You got Declutter!
Clutter is causing you anxiety, stress, and TONS of mental clutter. You feel like you spend most of your time organizing, cleaning, looking for lost items, or drowning in piles of 'stuff'. No matter how much time you spend cleaning and organizing, you can never seem to get ahead.
Or maybe you've tried to start decluttering, but quickly got overwhelmed and didn't know how to move forward.
Reducing physical clutter can help you reduce mental clutter by:
-Less stress and anxiety
-Saving you money (less money stress) by adopting a new mindset of reducing what comes into your home
-Allows you to be surrounded by ONLY things you love!
-Frees up time previously spent cleaning, looking for lost items, and organizing!

You got Minimalism and Intentional Living!
You often feel overwhelmed in many areas of your life. You find yourself always answering the question:
"how are you?" ...
You feel like you spend all your time running around, checking things off your endless to do list, with no time for yourself, your hobbies (what are THOSE?) or your family and friends. You often feel you are running on autopilot instead of living with intention.
Minimalism is all about REDUCING things in your life that don't bring meaning, in order to live a life more in line with your values and the things that do bring you joy (and no, this doesn't just apply to physical clutter).
Intentional living is all about being, well, intentional about how you are living your life.
So, how do you start REDUCING things and living with more intention? Sign up below to receive personalized resources to help you start clearing things that don't bring you purpose and filling that void with more intentional living!
You got Mindfulness!
You find yourself constantly feeling stressed, anxious, and/or overwhelmed. You find yourself thinking about something in the future, making up scenarios in your head (what if), or thinking about something from the past. You have trouble quieting your mind. You have trouble falling asleep because of your racing thoughts.
Mindfulness can help quiet the mental clutter. It can help you calm down, find inner peace, and relax. The best part about it? It takes very little effort, just practice.
So how do you start incorporating mindfulness into your life? There are many different options! Sign up below for your personalized resources to help you integrate mindfulness in order to reduce mental clutter.
