As we move deeper into this stressful time of waiting out the coronavirus, many of us are working from home or isolating ourselves for safety. I find that when there is uncertainty or chaos abound, that is when it is most important to push forward with whatever it is that makes us Creative Warriors. This is the perfect time to turn your space into one that will keep you on a path of productivity and help ease anxieties. And often that means decluttering.

Your home or office should be a tool that you need to do your best out in the world. So, it is important to be mindful about how we relate to our stuff. Each of us has specific blocks that keep us from getting rid of things we don’t need. Whether they are emotional or strategic, we often don’t realize the real reasons behind why we are prone to clutter in certain areas of our homes. The first step is paying attention. From there we can begin to live more clutter-free lives.

To dive deeper into the subject of decluttering your space to find freedom and success, I’ve brought on the founder of dClutterfly, Tracy McCubbin.

dClutterfly is a rapidly expanding organizing company with thousands of happy clients. Tracy-trained teams are dispatched around the country, helping people break through their own ClutterBlocks, and make space for what matters. Tracy is also the author of the newly published book, Making Space, Clutter-Free: The Last Book on Decluttering You'll Ever Need” and is a regularly featured expert in the media, including The Washington Post, The Wall Street Journal, goop, Home & Family, Real Simple, mindbodygreen, NBC, KTLA Morning Show, KCAL9, and more.
