De-clutter

Why not try decluttering your home. Decluttering your home will not only help you organise your home but it can also help you feel relax and relieved when you’re feeling anxious. A messy environment is never good for anyone as this results in clouded thoughts. Having thoughts all over your head can increase your anxiety so it’s important to clear our mind.

You can start decluttering different areas of your home. For example, you can clear out your storage cupboard, wardrobe, attic, freezer, fridge, under the bed or even your spare room. It may be difficult for others to get rid of unwanted items so we advise that you follow the 6-month rule that everyone is talking about. The six-month rule means throwing out any item that you haven’t used for the last six months.
