3 Tips to Kickstart Your Spring Cleaning and Decluttering and Gain Mental Clarity

Spring cleaning is about more than just tidying up your living space. It’s also a good time to declutter your mind, paving the way for greater focus, clarity, and goal-setting success.

Why Declutter Your Spaces?

There are several benefits of creating and maintaining a clean, organized living space. A tidy home or workspace reduces stress, improves productivity, and enhances well-being. But did you know that a clean-living space also improves your mental clarity and focus?

It’s Therapeutic

The act of cleaning and decluttering is highly therapeutic, helping to clear your mind and reduce feelings of overwhelm. It provides a sense of accomplishment and control, which is especially important in times of uncertainty. Focusing on the things that matter most is easier when your physical space is organized.

It Improves Focus 

A cluttered space is a distraction, pulling your attention in multiple directions and making it difficult to focus on a specific task. Whereas a clean and organized space helps you better prioritize your goals and work towards them more efficiently.

It Brings Clarity 

Spring cleaning also helps you to reassess your goals and aspirations. By reflecting on what you want to achieve and how your living space supports those goals, you create a clearer path to success.

Tips for getting started with spring cleaning for mental clarity and goal-setting success:

  • Start with a plan — Set aside specific time slots for cleaning and decluttering and create a checklist of tasks to tackle. This helps you stay focused and motivated. My sister and I did this after my mom passed. It has helped us plan our days because we know who is cleaning what and when. 
  • Be ruthless in your decluttering efforts — Take an honest look at the items in your home or workspace and ask yourself if they truly serve a purpose or bring you joy. If not, consider donating or selling them.
  • Create a designated space for items that support your goals — For example, if you’re working towards a fitness goal, create a space for workout gear and equipment. If you’re focused on a creative pursuit, set up a dedicated workspace that inspires you. 


Spring cleaning does more than make your living space look neat and tidy. It clears your mind, improves your focus, and sets you on the path to goal-setting success. All it takes is a little time each day to declutter and organize your physical environment to create a clearer path to mental clarity and to achieve your goals with greater efficiency.
