Although many people feel lighter after clearing their clutter, it does happen that sometimes people feel energetically drained or heavier. Stagnant energy collects around clutter, and when we start decluttering that energy gets all stirred up.

Something else worth mentioning – if you start to feel drained during your decluttering session, take a break and try the hand washing technique I mention and see if that helps bring your energy up enough for you to finish what you had started working on. You might be surprised how something as simple as washing your hands can help – it’s always the FIRST thing I do when I get home from working with a client onsite. Sometimes it’s the simplest things that make the biggest difference!
