3 Things to Declutter this December
The holidays are a time for celebrating with the people we love most. From relaxing get-togethers with family to festive gatherings with close friends, this time of year is about spending quality time together and making happy memories. However, as much fun as the holidays can be, they can also be a source of stress and anxiety. Between shopping for presents, wrangling down family members to make travel arrangements, and juggling work and social commitments, it's easy to feel overwhelmed.
That's why I've decided to take on the challenge of decluttering different aspects of my life over the month of December. Here are three areas of your life you can declutter this December.
How to Declutter Your Schedule
During the holiday season, our calendars tend to fill up quickly with all sorts of events – parties, shopping trips, and seasonal get-togethers with friends and family members. While it might be tempting to say yes to everything and spend every waking moment running from one activity to the next, it's important to take a step back and remember that you don't need to do it all.
Instead, take some time to prioritize the activities that are most important to you and your loved ones. This could mean only choosing a pre-set number of engagements you'll say yes to so you can have more time for quality family time. Or you may shop online more this year to save time driving around town. Prioritizing the important events first will allow you to re-arrange your schedule and get creative with finding time-saving hacks for giving yourself the downtime you need and deserve. So when those party invitations and shopping lists start pouring in over the coming weeks, don't hesitate to say no.
How to Declutter Your Mind
The holidays can be a time of great excitement, but they can also be a source of tremendous stress and anxiety. One effective way to alleviate some of that stress is to take a few minutes each day for meditation. Meditation has been shown to have many beneficial effects on the mind and body, including reducing stress levels and improving concentration and focus.
There are countless meditation apps to search through, and I'm sure you'll find one that stands out. So take the time during the holiday season to calm your mind, clear your thoughts through mindful meditation, and reap all the benefits of it.
How to Declutter Your Diet
To stay healthy this holiday season, focus on eating lots of fresh fruits and vegetables and reducing your sugar intake. This is the perfect time of year to simplify your diet.
Commit to practical steps you can easily follow, such as adding one side salad to at least one daily meal. For the month of December, have your snacks be fresh veggies with a delicious dip you love. Cut out that third cup of coffee for a warm and cozy Winter Tea. There are countless ways you can simplify your diet and make things easier and more healthy in the long run.
Think about it...you'll start the New Year feeling refreshed and rejuvenated by taking some time each day to declutter different areas of your life.
