Until you discover the “whys” for decluttering, you will never be motivated to do so. Here are three important whys to keep in mind while you are still deciding whether or not decluttering is worth your time:
First WHY- Relax and Focus More
You will be more relaxed when you clear out the stuff you don’t use or need.
Who doesn’t want to feel more relaxed? When your environment is clear and clean of clutter, your body will relax in a new serene environment. Your mind will also be able to focus on what’s truly important: people, relationships, and experiences, not things.
Second WHY – Do Someone Else Some Good
There are so many organizations in our world that are wanting and needing your unused stuff.

Third WHY- Find More Joy
When you free up your spaces and your mind, you will discover that joy replaces the stuff. You will be able to clean your home faster and easier, rarely lose or misplace items, and have more time to pursue your goals and dreams. By letting go of the things that no longer serve you or add value to your life, you will have time to focus on what is essential.
Less stuff equals more joy!
