Summer Shorts Series: The Habit of Letting Go
19 Jan 2022
It's summer in Australia and Bec is in holiday mode (and Tara still has the Aussie habit of wanting to take January off work!) so we are taking a "half break" and we have planned a series of short episodes are all themed around the Habits of Uncluttered People- these are habits that Bec and Tara have identified as being held by people who don't have any clutter.
Perhaps they might be habits that you could think about implementing too, if you'd like to be a little less cluttered.
This week's habit is "Letting Go".
This habit is fairly self-explanatory - it’s about the ability to declutter/de-own easily or as required.
Uncluttered people generally:
- Have their emotional needs met by a small selection of sentimental possessions only, rather than keeping them all
- Find other ways to remember people, places and times than owning things
- Aren’t afraid of the possibility of being inconvenienced
- Can accurately assess the likelihood of something being used (or not used!) in the future
- Aren’t afraid of having to possibly improvise now and again
- Don’t value items based on what they paid, only whether they are useful or warm their heart
- Don’t hold on to relationships that don’t add value to their lives
- Put themselves first and don’t keep things out of guilt or obligation
