When you enter a room, do you have an unaccountable feeling that you do not want to be here? Psychologists say that some of the details of the interior can cause accumulating irritation every day.
Irritation, in turn, can lead to psychosomatic illnesses. Want to know what to throw out of your home without regret?
Here is a basic list in which everyone finds out their own:
Each parent knows that children’s things in the house are added as the baby grows faster than they are thrown away. According to surveys, most parents estimate that they can throw out up to 50% of their child’s toys and clothes at any time, and he will not notice this. But we do not, and this becomes a cause of visual irritation.
BOOKS YOU DO NOT READ MORE
Hereinafter, we will talk about such a feature of our psyche as self-identification. The items that you liked once represent for you a certain period of life. And that is why it is so difficult to part with them, because it is a symbolic gesture of “I have changed / I have changed.” No, you are not throwing a piece of yourself, you just have the courage to admit that you have changed.
Books that you no longer like are not part of you. These are just books that you liked before, but now they make you awkward for that period or because you are no longer the same as before.
HOBBY WHICH YOU DROP
Yes, you should get rid of all this without regret. You will never return to your previous hobbies, do not be fooled. Constantly putting off “I can someday do it” is painful self-deception. Spare your psyche, throw it away.
Yes, yes, this is a classic and all that. But this classic has the curtains of creating an oppressive atmosphere. We somehow forget why thick fabric curtains were invented. They protected the room from drafts from holey windows. Now, in the age of double-glazed windows, they have no practical meaning. Replace them with light and bright curtains and see how much easier it becomes to breathe.
WRONGLY SELECTED COLORS
It doesn’t matter if it’s too dull or too bright. If you are uncomfortable in this room, repaint it.
Cups with crests, chipped spouts from dummies. Every day you see this imperfection and it unconsciously annoys your brain. No chopped grandmother faience is worth your nerves. Yes, throw it away, you can.
NEWSPAPERS YOU DO NOT READ
Just don’t laugh, it’s a common place for many people to put off the press for later and save it. An alarming reminder is written in our brain in a special corner: “Do not forget to read the TV program last month,” and this is not a joke. Reduce the number of publications you subscribe to and throw away all the junk without reading.
Souvenir, with company logos, with wishes. No, not all dishes are equally useful. Thin yours and leave only those that truly delight you.
THINGS YOU ARE GOING TO GIVE TO SOMEBODY
To the church, the poor, relatives, etc. If you have not done this in the last three days, you will never do it. Take to the garbage chute and live in peace.
