Five Ways to Unclutter Your Life (Advice From a Mad Hermit)

1.) Clean Your Space – To unclutter the world within, the best place to start is to unclutter the world without. Plus, it makes living each day a little easier. Trust me, everyone can use a cleaner room.

2.) Make a List of Priorities – It doesn’t have to be long. But it should be something that you take some time to do. Write down, one at a time, a few goals to set for yourself. Cleaning your room or workspace could even be one of them. When you gather your priorities into a list that you can see in front of you, life becomes a little neater.

3.) Take a Break – Sometimes all we need is some time to ourselves. A “time out” just to relax, take a step back, and gather ourselves is an invaluable option. If things are going insane around you, there’s nothing like a breather to put a little sanity where it’s lacking.

4.) Reschedule When Possible – If your calendar is too cluttered, it won’t kill you to reschedule certain things, especially if you can reschedule them. For instance, pushing back a dental check up to free up time for other things won’t kill you, unless it’s major surgery. All it takes is a phone call. So why stress out about something that you can easily change?

5.) Get Healthier Habits – Sometimes it’s low energy levels that make our lives more cluttered rather than bad time management. So, if you feel that you don’t have the energy to run the race, learn how to rest in between strides. Get more sleep. Make curfews for yourself. Are eating habits not working for you? Eat healthier. Get exercise. Cause a little bit goes a long way.
