Declutter As A Form of Self-Care

The benefits of decluttering as a way to improve your well-being.

One of my favorite quotes is by Eleanor Brown:

"Clutter is not just physical stuff.

It's old ideas, toxic relationships, and bad habits.

Clutter is anything that does not support your better self."


Her words are so important because they remind us that decluttering is truly an act of self-care. If you want to be the best YOU possible you need to clear out everything that doesn't represent the best version of who you want to be.
