Have a clean workspace and home. Before we can discuss the benefits of a clean house and workplace, and the setbacks that it can bring to a person, we first need to consider the root of what we are focusing on achieving which is, cleaning. There are different types of cleaning. In our case, we are not going to talk about the removal of infectious agents and other impurities. We are going to focus on removing unwanted substances – clutter. I know clutter is not a substance exactly, but let’s take it with a grain of salt and think of it as eliminating unnecessary items from our environment.

Set goals.

The most important part of this process, or any process, is setting goals. Plan how you are going to go through the clutter. Make a room to room plan if it is needed. A plan is necessary because going through the junk can be frustrating. Especially if it is your family’s first time decluttering and the frustration might get to you and your family members. Instead of decluttering, you might end up just making the clutter worse. Plan!

Create a system

Create a system of how you are going to classify things. Classify the stuff that you are going to encounter in your home. You can use a three-category method: (1) Need, (2) Discard, and (3) Keep. Need: these are the things that are needed in your day to day living. Discard: these are the things that are not nearly as important as the other things that are in your house; these might be things that you needed a while back but that you don’t need now. Keep: these are the things that you might not necessarily need in your day to day life but have something of meaning to you, things passed on from previous generations, gifts, or something that you have memories associated with.

Execute

Carry out the plan, the system that you have created will go to waste if you don’t execute it. It is the hard part of this entire process because this is the part where you lose some stuff, and this is the part where you do some heavy work.

After discussing the process of decluttering, we can now discuss the benefits of having a decluttered environment. First, it helps you focus more. Having a decluttered environment enables you to concentrate more because there are fewer things that could distract your attention from what you are trying to do. Second, it keeps stress levels low, and a decluttered environment promotes a more laid-back feeling because there is more open space, and there will be less visible stuff that is out of place. Third, it keeps the bugs away; this could be a shock to people, but it does lessen the presence of bugs because bugs like to live and stay in unused spaces full of clutter.
