Filter Out The Waste

Updated: Feb 29

When you're living day in, day out and not allowing yourself space or time to stop, it can be easy to forget what's actually important to you. You're forging a path without looking ahead, walking a road without checking directions. All of a sudden you don't know where you are anymore and no longer see the big picture.

So how can we get back on track? How can we de-clutter our world and focus on what really matters?

reflecting on priorities
Spring Clean

If you're like me, there comes a point when the house just feels like it has too much 'stuff'. It affects your thinking, and you just want it gone! The same thing happens in life, except we don't always realise that we need a spring clean. We feel overwhelmed, out of time and undervalued. Yet we don't stop to figure out what needs to change.

“Your beliefs become your thoughts. Your thoughts become your words. Your words become your actions. Your actions become your habits. Your habits become your values. Your values become your destiny.” — Mahatma Gandhi


Set some time aside, intentionally to map out:

  • What your life currently looks like (you could map out your week and review it using a printable weekly planner)

  • What your values are

  • What's important/matters to you

  • What needs to be removed

What did you discover? Where is your time being spent, and where do you want your time being spent?

Make time for the things that matter

Start Fresh

Yes! Make the shift! Out with the old, in with the new. Find your roadmap and get back on track. Don't allow the clutter back into your life. And learn to say NO. And if you don't get all the 'work' done in the time you've allocated, realise that IT'S OK, instead of cutting into precious value time. Knowing how you want to spend your time is the first step. Allowing yourself to do this, is the next step.

Tips For Change
  • Shift your focus to the things that matter (family, health etc)

  • Allocate a small timeframe each day or week for the things that are important/have to happen, that aren't your main focus (they still have to happen right?)

  • Don't feel guilty for prioritising what matters to you
