Review of Unstuffed: Decluttering Your Home, Mind and Soul
Do you look around your home and think there is just too much stuff here? Where did it all come from? Why do we need it all? What about your calendar, do you run from place to place? Are you over busy from an overscheduled calendar? If you can ask yourself these questions, you are probably ready to take action and get Unstuffed.
I would like to thank Ruth Soukup for providing me an advance copy of this book for review. All opinions here are my own. This post includes affiliate links. Read my disclosure policy here.
In her newest book, Unstuffed: Decluttering Your Home, Mind & Soul Ruth Soukup gives practical advice and shares her hard-learned wisdom about how we get too much stuff in our lives and how to get Unstuffed. She shares her personal stories, challenges, mistakes and how she finally got her life unstuffed.
Unstuffed: Decluttering Your Home, Mind and Soul is more than a book about decluttering. It’s about changing your mind about everything that clutters our lives including stuff, activities, and more. You will learn how to find ways to be content with less stuff and make time for what matters.
The book is divided into 3 sections – your home, your mind and your soul.
In the home section, you will receive practical advice to remove the clutter from your home. Ruth even provides a weekend plan to declutter every room in your home (including an exact hourly schedule and plan to follow-up).
After you have decluttered your home, it’s time to work on your mind. Do you get stressed some days just thinking about everything on your calendar that needs to be done? Ruth will show you how to reduce your calendar and keep only the most important plans. She also shows us how to manage all the paper in our lives.
Last, Ruth will show you how to take care of yourself. Learn to take time to build friendships and how we can enhance our lives with friendship. She reminds us of the importance of our health and taking care of ourselves. She closes the book by showing us to nourish our spirit too.
When you finish reading Unstuffed: Decluttering Your Home, Mind & Soul, you will look at and think differently about the things you have and why you keep them. You will also want to protect your time and focus on only the most important things.
Becoming unstuffed takes time. It doesn’t happen overnight. For some of us (like me), it will probably be a life-long challenge to continually fight our desires for more stuff (even good things). To not be overwhelmed by stuff and busyness, we must understand ourselves and why we keep so much and have overwhelmed schedules.
It’s time to start today and get your life unstuffed. What are you waiting for?
Do you have too much stuff? Are your days overscheduled and overbusy? What steps are you taking to change today?
