Jan 04, 2023 Personal Environmental Wellness

It is January and time to clear out the clutter!  As the temperature dips lower it is a perfect time to take stock of your mental space and physical surroundings. What can be collected over the course of one year may be encumbering areas of your life without you consciously realizing the impact.  Mental clutter can add stress to your life through overly busy schedules, multi-tasking, and disorganization of your environment.  Physical clutter can become a manifestation of these issues and also a contributor. This extra stress can lead to many health issues if not addressed on a regular basis.  Attention to personal environmental wellness is a good way to start 2023 off on the best footing for a great year!

Personal environmental wellness consists of your relationship with, and organization of, your home and work settings.  The atmosphere should be pleasant, stimulating, comfortable, and as tidy as possible to allow for creativity, focus, and relaxation, as the situation demands.

Some tips for work or home spaces:

  • Bring in more natural light or add colors that are pleasing to your eyes.
  • Create a desk space with more storage capacity or by utilizing new stowing ideas.
  • Remove anything from your closet you haven’t worn or used in the last 18 months and donate.
  • Replace your light bulbs with daylight or halogen bulbs for a more natural light.
  • Create a dedicated area for reading or meditating away from your work or sleep space.
  • Make a visual to-do list part of your daily habits.
  • Start journaling regularly to purge thoughts from the mind.

The hardest part of anything is the first step.  Give yourself the time and space to make your life better!

Stay safe, stay strong, stay healthy!
