Achieving a Harmonious Home: Simple Steps to Organise Your Space and Mind


Are you paying attention to what’s really going on in your life? What thoughts are constantly nagging at you? What small things are causing you extra stress or making you feel less like yourself?


Paying Attention to Your Home

Take a moment to think about your home. What’s bothering you on a daily basis? Maybe it’s that coffee table piled high with kids’ pencils, random papers, and other odds and ends. Or perhaps it’s that kitchen drawer—you know, the one filled with all those miscellaneous items that stop you from finding what you actually need. We all have that drawer. It’s full of things we don’t really understand why we keep, yet we can’t seem to let go of them.

I once worked with a client who struggled to declutter that infamous drawer. We developed a plan where every six months, the family would tackle it together. Still, some items just couldn’t be removed because of that nagging “just in case” feeling. So, we came up with a solution: we filed these questionable items into an envelope, dated it, and agreed that if no one needed anything from it after a year, it was safe to toss it. This method not only cleared physical space but also freed up mental space.


The Mental Drawer

Think of your mind as having its own “drawer,” filled with thoughts and worries that you might not even realise are there. Learning to mentally declutter is just as important as physically organising your home. Once you start letting go of unnecessary items—whether they’re physical objects or mental burdens—you’ll find yourself feeling lighter and more at ease.


Small Steps for Big Changes

So, how can you start paying attention to yourself and your space without feeling overwhelmed? Micro-organising is the key. Dedicate just five to ten minutes a day to decluttering a small area or tackling a minor task. These short, energy-infused bursts can be life-changing. They create a habit of organisation that over time leads to a more orderly home and a calmer mind.

Imagine the satisfaction of a clear coffee table or a kitchen drawer where everything has its place. Think about how much better you’ll feel when you’re not constantly searching for things or stepping over clutter. By taking small steps every day, you’ll create real, lasting changes in both your home and your mindset.
