Hello! Welcome to the brand new blog from Cloud 9 Household! I’m so excited to be meeting you all! So let’s start by a quick introduction to me and what we’ll be getting up to…
I am Shelley, a mid 30’s mother from the Midlands in the U.K. I work part time, live with my partner and two young boys and after a few years trying to get us all organised (and finally feeling like I’m winning!) I thought I’d share my journey with others hoping to get more organised in their family life! I’ve created some brilliant resources and discovered a lot from trial and error along the way. I would have loved some help and encouragement in the early days so I decided to help others achieve their goals!
So my journey begins with decluttering! I have had to learn to let go of a lot of sentimental items to be able to create the loving home I always wanted, it was extremely hard but finally I am now surrounded by only items that I love and need. It makes me feel so achieved to look around in my house and not see piles of ‘things’ anymore that I didn’t realise were just dragging me down.
Getting organised has many benefits, clutter has a negative impact on your emotional well-being and your ability to process thoughts. Feeling like you have an endless list of things to do can not only be daunting, it can be exhausting too! You can feel mentally worn out just thinking about all the things you need to do before you even start!
De-cluttering your life can reduce stress, anxiety and depression, can improve relationships, build self confidence, improve sleep, help you lose weight, and motivate you to do more!
Organising your life isn’t just about scaling Mount Washmore (that never ending pile of laundry that doesn’t disappear however many loads you get through in a day!), it’s about having more time to do the things you actually want to do and giving you a more balanced life, leading to a calmer, happier you!
To be able to declutter there needs to be a plan in place, how are you going to tackle this? What is an important item? How can you let go of items if you feel they are all important? I have been working on a fantastic little booklet giving you the tools you need to be able to declutter your home from start to finish, everything, all in one little booklet! There are also a number of printables included to be able to keep you focused and give you step by step guidance. If you would like to order a copy of this booklet it is an instant download from my Etsy shop and is available from the link below.
