Affirmations For People With Clutter - From Experts On Clutter (Part 1)
Hello Collectors! One of the first steps of clearing clutter is believing in yourself. You can do it, all you need is a little help.

Affirmations are positive statements that you can tell yourself when you are feeling overwhelmed with clutter or anything else in your life. They are something that I have used in order to obtain positive thinking during hard times. It may sound simple or even silly at first, but it has been proven in some individuals to combat ANT's (automatic negative thoughts). Stop telling yourself that you are bad, or lazy or not worth the effort. Try comforting yourself, inspiring yourself, and enjoy this collection of affirmations from some of the worlds best experts on chronic disorganization and hoarding.

My home is a warm, peaceful, comfortable, beautiful haven.  - Annie Rohrbach

  1. Love this post! Affirmations are what promote more positive behaviors and create positive actions.

    My favorite is "Less is More!"

    1. Ellen, thank you so much for sharing and stopping by. I am thrilled you share an interest in affirmations as well. This collection is specific to clutter, but affirmations can be used in every aspect of your life.

      I believe that by telling yourself that you are good and worth it, you begin to think in a more positive manner when addressing clutter. Everyone deserves a healthy home, a place to sleep and eat, and somewhere to shower or bathe.

      ** Celebration of your new space can be incorporated and affirmations will change and grow with you. I suggest renewing/reviving your affirmations at least every six months to further your de-cluttering goals.
      Thanks for sharing your favorite Ellen!
