Richard and I have been based in the UK for the last six and a half years since leaving Bali in 2010 and we’ve really enjoyed our time here. But over the last month it’s become clear to…

DO YOU OWN YOUR STUFF, OR DOES IT OWN YOU?

When you walk in through your front door, do you feel like you own the space of your home, or has clutter taken over?

We humans are territorial animals with strong nesting instincts, so it’s natural for us to want to drag things home to our nests. But over 90% of people say they have too much stuff, and about a third have so much mess they avoid going home if they want to relax and don’t know where to begin cleaning.

In other words, clutter rules the roost.

Most people hugely underestimate how important it is to energetically own the space they live in. It’s the difference between living in a place that nourishes and supports you, or a place that drains your energy. Your home is a reflection of you, and the areas where clutter has taken over correspond to parts of yourself you’ve become unconscious about.

Tackling this problem will be the topic of my next 21-day Fast Track Clutter Clearing online course that has already helped thousands of people from over 50 countries around the world.

Dates: September 7-27, 2016
Price: £70 (plus 20% UK sales tax for UK & EU residents)

This is the last opportunity to take this course this year.

HOW OFTEN DO YOU CHANGE YOUR BED SHEETS?

You know that delicious feeling when you slip into freshly laundered bed sheets? Ever wondered why it feels so good?

One of the primary reasons that clutter clearing makes such a difference is that clearing out the old makes room for the new. Sunflower. If you are happy with your life as it is and content to remain in the same old groove, read no further. Just leave everything in your home as it is.

HOW MONTY PYTHON CHANGED THE WORLD

There’s a delightful story here in the UK at the moment about an online poll conducted by Britain’s National Environment Research Council to name a new £200 million arctic research vessel. But it all went terribly wrong for the Council when someone suggested the name Boaty McBoatface and it caught on like wildfire, attracting four times more votes than the next closest choice.

DON'T FORGET THIS VERY SATISFYING PART OF CLUTTER CLEARING

So you’ve done some clutter clearing, and all the things you have decided to let go of are bundled up in bags or boxes. That’s great, but please don’t make the mistake that so many people make of not getting it all off the premises.

WHAT THE CONTENTS OF YOUR PURSE/HANDBAG SAY ABOUT YOU

It’s called a purse if you’re American and a handbag if you’re English, like me. But whatever name you call it, most women carry one, and it usually contains far more items than they ever need.

THE IMPORTANCE OF CREATING CONSCIOUS SPACE

How many things does the average person own? A recent Channel 4 documentary here in the UK, called Life Stripped Bare, stated that the average UK household contains 1,000 items, while a 2014 article in the LA Times put the figure at 300,000 items in the average American home.

Based on consultations I’ve done in both countries, I don’t think either figure is correct.

WHY THE BEST PLACE FOR A CLOCK RADIO IS IN YOUR BIN, NOT ON YOUR BEDSIDE TABLE

Most people who sleep with a clock radio alarm next to their bed find it difficult to wake up in the morning. They say that’s why they have one. But what they don't realize is that their clock radio may actually be the cause.

5 FENG SHUI TIPS FOR THE DOORS IN YOUR HOME

Most people don’t think twice about doors. They use them to enter or exit buildings and rooms and close them when they want some privacy, quiet or security. But there is much more to doors than this.
