Use Feng Shui to Reduce Clutter

It is difficult to be excited about clearing your own clutter. Other people's clutter is easy to deal with and it can be a very exciting process—especially for Feng Shui-minded people—but there is not much excitement in tackling your own clutter.

Knowing this fact should make it easier for you to start your decluttering process at home and in the office. Team Gemini appreciates the removal of clutter so we can make your office shine!

Accepting that your clutter will be hard to deal with is half the battle. The other half is to use simple and smart feng shui tips to make the battle fun.

Feng Shui originated from ancient China. The focus is to use energy forces to harmonize individuals with their surrounding environment. The term Feng Shui literally translates as "wind-water" in English.
The effect of clutter on your health, your energy levels and the overall quality of your life is obvious. Clutter drains your energy and dampens your best intentions.

There is a way out and Feng Shui as an energy tool can help you clear your clutter in the most efficient and enjoyable way.

Keep two important guidelines in mind to make this work.

Attract higher Feng Shui energy to support you when you clean. Open the windows to admit fresh air or put on great music.

Start small and time your efforts. Plan to underachieve rather than overachieve.

Use these Feng Shui clutter clearing tips to get started.

It is powerful, simple, gentle to your well-being, and it really works. In order for this to help you, you have to be brave and honest.

The more honest you are, the more you benefit from the powerful results of a new, fresh and potent Feng Shui energy.

Identify all your clutter—it's stealing your energy. If your rooms look OK on the surface but your garage or attic is a disaster, acknowledge it.

Declutter with a clear feeling that you want to bring to your home or office. Clutter is low and stagnant. You need to be the opposite to attack it.

Plan the time for your clutter cleaning sessions. Limit the first three sessions to no more than 30 minutes each. Plan a treat after every session.

Gather the supplies you need. Use three boxes and label them "In," "Out" and "I Don't Know." You'll also need a timer. Place the boxes close to your work area.

Pick up an item from your cluttered area and put it in one of the boxes. Repeat until your session time is up.

The In box stays in if you have space for each item.
The Out box goes out to friends, charity or a garage sale.

Close the I Don't Know box and mark your calendar six months in the future. If you haven't needed anything in the box in that time, give it away without opening it up.

We hope you have enjoyed these tips and will use them soon.
