Feeling overwhelmed by clutter? Lighten your load and refresh your life with these practical decluttering tips!
During this BYOG Party, decluttering expert Heather Manley provides insight into why we accumulate clutter and how clearing it can benefit your health, home, and overall wellbeing.
Drawing on her journey from self-proclaimed “clutterbug” to clutter-free living, Heather shares research, strategies, and inspiration to help you clear the clutter for good.
Key Insights and Takeaways:
- Clutter raises your stress hormone cortisol and distracts your brain. A cluttered home is a stressful home.
- Decluttering eliminates 40% of housework. Less clutter = less cleaning.
- We tie our self-worth to possessions and staying busy. Ask yourself: what matters most?
- Sentiment doesn’t justify keeping disliked gifts or unused items. Let go of these “mind clutter” excuses.
- Decluttering feels uncomfortable at first, like switching which thumb goes on top when clasping your hands. Stay committed!
- Remind yourself: things have no meaning until you assign meaning to them. Your clutter is just stuff.
- Write two letters: one from “Less” saying what peace you’ll gain by decluttering, one from “Clutter” giving yourself permission to let go.
- Turn FOMO (fear of missing out) to JOMO - joy of missing out on clutter! Feel lighter when it's gone.
- Use the 5-4-3-2-1 countdown when you’re procrastinating to get up and declutter something small. Accomplishment builds momentum.
- Ask yourself: does this item spark joy or peace? Or does it feel heavy? Let your intuition guide you.
Let go of clutter - physical, mental, and emotional - to gain more freedom, clarity, and calm.

Heather Aardema is a National Board & Functional Medicine Certified health coach, as well as a Certified Life Coach. She's a former clutter-bug turned minimalist and the founder of School of Living Lighter.
A former TV ad executive, she spent two decades convincing people that they needed the latest gadget to be happy.
Struggling to find deeper meaning in her job towards the end of her corporate career, she couldn't take off her extra weight, her home was cluttered, and life felt complicated and heavy.
Then, she discovered minimalism—the intentional pursuit of focusing on what matters most by removing the distractions that remove joy from life—and felt herself getting lighter by the day.
She walked away from corporate, embraced a new way of living, and today has helped thousands tackle their clutter, un-complicate their lives, and lose their excess weight (mental, emotional and physical) for good.
