Sometimes, all we need to do to get out of a rut is to do a little bit of decluttering around the home. Having a cluttered home makes it impossible to have a clear mind. A decluttering mission can also reach your schedule and even your email inbox or PC desktop. Anything that no longer serves a purpose or aligns with your priorities needs to go.
