Now more than ever it is important to ditch the guilt when clearing out our offices and homes. Getting rid of items that someone we loved or something we spent a lot of money on can make us hold onto items far longer than necessary. Storing the things we don’t like or use is something many of us tend to do. We think that perhaps someday we will use it again, yet the chances are slim. This is not productive, and neither is it healthy for the psyche.
Even though we don’t physically carry all these items with us, the heaviness still weighs us down in various ways. The heaviness can be in the form of anxiety, sadness, frustration or exhaustion. Letting go might feel a little frightening at first but once achieved you will feel light. The lightness can be felt almost immediately once you have taken those first, positive steps to clear out the things you don’t need or don’t use.
Do you have two of everything? Letting go of duplicates is a great place to start as you declutter. Those items you no longer enjoy using or those things that serve no purpose in your space should not be taking up any space. Box it up if you cannot let go, and store it in self-storage until you decide what to do. It is interesting to observe how “light” you will become once this is achieved. Not only will your space feel a lot lighter, but it will be far easier to clean and to keep in a pristine condition, keeping bugs, germs and viruses in check. The same concept applies to your physical self. If there are things you don’t like about yourself, lighten the load and feel the difference in your outlook
The minute you let go of your stuff you will feel as though a weight has been lifted from your shoulders. Emotionally we all fare better if we remove the clutter from our lives. Whether you are working from home as a temporary measure, intend working remotely from your home office permanently or are thinking of working from your office premises; decluttering and a fresh outlook will put everything in perspective. We might not want to get rid of those extra things that could help us down the line, though, and keeping these might prove to be frugal and make good sense.

Many individuals and businesses are closing their doors as a direct result of the COVID19 virus, which has played havoc on our economy. It is time to rethink, declutter and pack up. If you are not ready to let go and to cut all those emotional ties, it is a good time to use self-storage units until decisions have been made and the future looks more stable. These are difficult times we are experiencing no matter which industry we work for. Making snap decisions is often a hard choice. If you are not sure where you will be, what to do with your business or are between and betwixt jobs or businesses, don’t do anything in haste. However, this might just be the perfect time to cut emotional ties with many material things until the world settles into a good rhythm once again.
