Serax Decluttering

As we get into the swing of a new year, we are presented with an opportunity to reflect on past experience and past choices. With this reflection comes the chance for change, should we wish to implement it, for a year ahead which fills us with inspiration, productivity and the ability to reach our goals (whatever they may be).

Everyone is unique in their wants and needs, but there are some things we all have in common and one of those is a desire to lead a life well lived, filled with appreciation for every aspect of good and a mind clear and focused on true priorities. There are many ways to achieve this is 2019, but one of our favourites (and a popular one sweeping the world right now, thanks the the Marie Kondo Netflix series ‘Tidying Up’) is through Decluttering.

A cluttered home leads to a cluttered mind. The same applies to your workspace and even your online office (we all know what a headache a disorganised desktop and crazy full inbox can be!). And a cluttered mind leads to anxiety, lethargy, stress, insomnia and a drastic dip in creativity and productivity. This year, we invite you to give your wellbeing a boost and potentially your career and life as a whole too, by streamlining your belongings (from knick-knacks to furniture) into a selection that both meets your needs and fills your heart with joy. Nothing more, nothing less.

So why, you may wonder, are we selling the idea of streamlining when we’re also selling products? Well, because unlike the interiors residing in the majority of homes, restaurants, office spaces and more which simply fills a function with a reasonable aesthetic, the offerings from Serax (from the upcycled accessories by Monica Vanden Burghe glassware to the multi-functional Reflect range by Studio Simple) are innovative works of art. When you streamline your home, there’s no need to be faced with a room than is devoid of character and life – simply choose a minimal selection of interior solutions which serve an essential purpose and enhance your life in the process.

Before redressing a space to suit you new found respect for sticking to what’s needed and what’s loved, you need to clear out the old to make way for the new. As you might imagine, when it comes to decluttering, clutter is the first thing that needs to go and there’s a lot more of it everywhere you look than you might realise.

Decluttering expert Juliet Landau Pope offers her advice on how to get started: ‘Set positive goals, focus on what you want to gain from the process – space, order, clarity, freedom, perhaps. Take it step by step, celebrate your progress and don’t be afraid to ask for help. The results will be truly transformative not just for your surroundings, but for your mind, body and soul too.’

PRACTICALLY SPEAKING, TIDYING SUPERSTAR MARIE KONDO USES WHAT SHE CALLS HER KONMARI METHOD TO TRANSFORM A SPACE.

Tidy all at once
Set yourself a 6-month time frame and clear the decks. Don’t let it drag out any longer or you will only start accumulating ‘stuff’ again.

Visualise your destination
Before you begin, you must create a firm idea in your mind of what you want to get out of decluttering your home. Visualise your ideal lifestyle and think up affirmations to help to work towards that.

Identify why you want to live the way you envision
For every answer ask yourself “why?” again. For example, if you want to live clutter free so you get a better night’s sleep, ask yourself, “Why do I want to sleep better?” Do this 3-5 times. When you find the answer to why you want to be tidy, you are ready to move on.

Determine if each item “sparks joy.”
Reorganising your life in this transformational way should be a pleasure, not a pain, so focus just as much on what sparks joy rather than focusing solely on throwing things away.

Tidy by category, not location
It is commonplace for groups of things (think clothes, for example) to be stored in various places throughout the house. Marie Kondo recommends tackling the tidying process by category not location to help clear your mind.

Tidy in the right order
Kondo says that the following order is the way to tidy: Clothes, Books, Papers, and then Komono (miscellaneous.). She goes into further details for other categories in her book The Life Changing Magic of Tidying: A Simple, Effective Way To Banish Clutter Forever

Discard before you place things back
Take joy and relief from discarding unwanted items. This purge can bring up a lot, so take time over it but ensure you are finished with discarding before putting anything away again.

Once you have decluttered and reorganised the area of your choosing, turn your attention to what is left. Do you love your storage solution, tableware and lighting? If not, ditch it and start anew. The aim is to spark joy from every angle, so stick to what you love.
