There’s just something satisfying about tidying up–the process may be fun for some, tedious for most, but the end result is always somehow liberating and refreshing. According to researchers at the Princeton University Neuroscience Institute, a cluttered environment "restricts your ability to focus and limits your brain to process information." If you’re feeling overwhelmed with everything that is happening around you, why not try to de-clutter unnecessary things and toxic people from your life?

Most of the time, we find it difficult to let go of certain things, memories, and people that are dear to us. But sometimes, what we think is necessary for our well-being is not really essential for our growth as a person. Are you still holding on to that toxic relationship with your boyfriend? Or are you having a hard time moving on because you’re still keeping those handwritten love letters from your first love?

Whether we're talking about material things or actual people in your life, always ask these questions: "Do they spark my interest and let me grow into the best person that I can be?" If the answer is no, then maybe it’s better to just let them go. Remember, life is too short to dwell on things that don’t matter. Once youve cleared your mind and life from these things, you’ll feel a huge sense of relief.
