When I say clean it up, I don’t mean your language, just your surroundings. This might be pretty self explanatory to some of you, but I know there a few people who might need a reminder. As well as cleaning unwanted dust (which is 75% dead skin cells ew), bacteria and germs, and just plain old rubbish. Cleaning your house is proven to lift your mood as well. You don’t have to do it all at once, but here are a few things to tackle when you get some time. Aim for one per day off. I’ve been doing this over the last few weeks and it’s really helping me enjoy my space and my belongings more.
Like I said, some of it is pretty self explanatory, but if you think about each of these things as an act of mindfulness it really starts feeling like less of a chore and more of an act of self care. And really, there’s nothing quite like, looking around at your space and your things and just being grateful for what you have.
