Why We Find it So Hard to Begin Decluttering
July 18, 2022
Why do we always choose to do the easy thing? When we’re feeling tired, most of us would just want to lie down and watch T.V. We can’t even grab food unless someone serves it to us. We’d rather spend our days lying in bed and not doing anything, hoping that money would come raining from heaven. This is more especially true when we have fallbacks to go to when things don’t go our way. For instance, if we get fired for a job because we were performing so badly, it’s fine with us because we will still have a roof over our heads and our parents to count on in paying the bills. We don’t feel that urgent need to move or do things in our life because we have others who can carry our lives even if we don’t do anything. It might be okay now but at some point in life, this kind of mindset won’t be beneficial to us or to the people we love. One day, as we’re scrolling through Instagram or Facebook and see the lives of our peers, we feel anxious that we have not done anything in our own life. We won’t find fulfillment from always being dependent on our parents even if we are already 25 years old. We’d now fear that we are so in the bottom of the race and feel terribly anxious that we couldn’t catch up anymore. We wonder where has the time all gone? This is most likely the same mindset why we refuse to clean or declutter. We think to ourselves that we are surviving even if we don’t clean our surroundings. Even if our place looks like a big trash bin, we couldn’t care less as long as we’re still breathing, eating, and kicking. We chose to do the easy thing which is to lie around and just leave our mess everywhere. But one day, the reality will wake us up. We are living in a trash bin and then we feel that there’s no more point in cleaning because we’d be accumulating trash again anyway. We already feel overwhelmed with the amount of trash we have at home that we don’t want to move anymore to get rid of it. So we choose to put it off until we’re finally forced to do something about it. Remember, time can’t be taken back. Once it has passed, you won’t be able to return to it and change what you did. What you have control of right now is the present. If you want change to happen, you shouldn’t choose the easy route. You should be open to going through struggles and difficulties because those could only make you a much stronger person than you are now. You’d be thanking yourself in front of the mirror for taking the necessary steps to turn your life for the better. There will always be much bigger things to deal with. But for now, tackle the challenge of finally decluttering your home for you to have a clearer headspace and a much more pleasing environment to live in and invite positive thoughts into your head. We propose cleaning your garage first. You need storage space to put the things that you will keep from your house and the garage can provide you with just that. In some houses, the garage is even the entry point to your main home. In some houses, they can’t even park their cars in the garage because it’s so full of clutter. In some houses, the garage serve other functions aside from storing items but you are limiting the function of yours because you are too lazy to pick up a damn mop and water to start cleaning. You are too damn lazy to sort through your things and finally throw out the items that you don’t need anymore. Trust us, all you have to do to conquer the tendency to do the easy things first is to just go do it. Just go do the thing that you have to do, no matter how overwhelming it feels like at the moment. Things will get much easier once you start doing something to address that tall order. When you finally decide to declutter your garage, here are some storage units from FlexiMounts that you can install to make sure you keep your items neat, tidy, and organized.
