"Declutter Depression Away?"

One of the best things I do when I feel any hint of depression returning (after I've gone for the daily exercise), is purge my house and get rid of the junk.

Just recently, I came across the "100 Thing Challenge", a grass-roots movement in which folks are pledging to whittle down their possessions to a mere 100 items.

No kidding.

What a great idea!

Are you up for the challenge??

Here's a quote from the Time article:

"People are finding that their homes are full of stuff, but their lives are littered with unfulfilled promises."

Read the full article...

And another fabulous quote:

"If you think about it, the reasons why a lot of people buy stuff are exactly the same reasons why a lot of people run out and eat inappropriate food—to make themselves feel better," he says. "The parallels are amazing. Our homes, heads and hips are connected." At the end of the day, experts agree that there are many different types of clutter, and they all rob us of peace and harmony. So look at the vision that you have for your life and then ask does keeping this item — whether it be a chair, vase or eclair — help me get there."

That quote is from... "365 Days of Decluttering Challenge" (5 Steps to Clutter-Free Living)

If you decide to take any of these challenges, I'd love to hear about it! Tell me how it affects your joy/ depression.


There is hope! You are worth it!
