Did you catch Miss’es Clean’s latest article in HWS Magazine? HWS is Niagara’s health and wellness magazine offering its readers educational articles, by health and wellness experts, on how to live a healthy lifestyle.
In the latest issue, I had the opportunity to share my experience on living minimally. I also share with readers tips on decluttering and small ways we can be minimal at home.
Can we live a meaningful life with less stuff? I certainly think we can. I have spent the last few months on a mission – to need less, to want less and to live with less. In a world where material possessions consume us, there is a sense of peace to the idea of letting things go. Getting to this point however is no easy task. Even “Miss’es Clean” herself struggles with this.
The idea of living a minimalist lifestyle can mean many things to different people. For me, it means having less debt, having more space in my home and having more time for myself and what matters to me. I am not advocating that everyone should be like me, but I do believe that decluttering can be a good thing for the mind and the wallet. This realization has come from over 15 years of being in the cleaning industry and being a helping hand for friends, family and clients to declutter their homes. If you are looking to declutter and live a little simpler, I would recommend starting with your home.
As I embarked on this journey, the most important thing I learned was to be patient with myself. You must remember this is not a one day task. Don’t be afraid to ask for help and don’t punish yourself over it.
When you’ve completed your final purge, reward yourself by having Miss’es Clean in for a Spring Cleaning! You deserve it! Or, if you are looking for some help, Miss’es Clean offers an optional decluttering service on top of our cleaning services.
