DON’T GO COLD TURKEY
“There are stories of people who go too minimalist and miss their stuff,” says Jessica. It’s OK to be attached to possessions and get comfort from them – just make sure you’re mindful and deliberate about what you have.
OPEN YOUR EYES
“The first step is awareness,” Jessica says. “The realisation of, ‘Look at all these clothes I have that I’m not wearing.’ Once your attention is drawn to it, you might set a specific time to develop a decluttering strategy.”
Have I worn this item of clothing in the past year?
Has this object been broken and not fixed in the past year?
It’s time to donate or throw out those belongings.
