|How to organize your life?
There was a time in my life when I thought it had lost its meaning. I wasn't sure if what I was doing was good for me or maybe I made the mistake of taking a risk. You can call it depression, I called it wasted time. Wasted, because instead of thinking about events that I couldn't influence at that moment, I could do a million other things.
If you lack motivation, you can't find anything and you are easily nervous, it's time to organize your life. How to do it? You will find out below. Get to work and organize your life now.
Organize your surroundings, organize your life
This may seem trivial, but many people have too many things. Often not even aware that he has them. We are sentimental, it's hard for us to part with childhood items or periods that remind us of something or someone. Okay, I also have two books from when I was little, but they make a little deeper sense to me. One of them reminds me of the hardships associated with learning to read, and the other has beautiful illustrations that I like to come back to even now.
I made my first move at the age of 19 when I moved from a small room that I had occupied most of my life to my sister's room when she moved out. This huge amount of space impressed me, but I did a selection of my things and got rid of about 1 / 3. The worst was with clothes, but I will mention it in today's post.

I made another selection of things when Piotr moved into me. We stayed with my mother for several years and we had to fit in one room. You probably know that I was terrified that someone would take up half of my wardrobe and need an extra shelf for socks. That made me choose a lot of my stuff.
Later, moving to rent. This time we both had to throw away / give up our things. It turned out to be very simple, although we were surprised by the number of things we had when moving out. We were made aware of the mountains of cartons we were packing into. You won't believe how many things you can fit in one room.
Interestingly, we made the selection not only on this, but also the next move. Of course, we didn't need most things, and we kept them for various reasons.
A book that changed my life
As I mentioned above - the biggest problem I had with clothes. I knew I had too many of them (I haven't worn most of them for a long time, I didn't even know about the rest), but I couldn't part with them.
My approach to clothes was changed by the book Slow Fashion (see book review
). As I read each page, I felt a desire to change. I wanted to run to the closet and get rid of more things. It was a time of complete revolution.
I threw 3 / 4 clothes out of my closet, I left only the ones I liked and in which I felt good. I also made a list of things I needed. My wardrobe has shrunk significantly and I felt free.
Minimalism in everyday life
I laugh that if we were to pack up in one day, it would not be a problem for us. We only have the things we need and like to surround ourselves. Every now and then we make a selection and throw away / give away what we think we no longer need.

We used to be very attached to things, today we perceive them as something that is only an addition to our lives.
