Spring & summer clean-up time! While trees are blooming here in the UK and around Europe and we're getting more sun every day, it's perfect time for you to get in sync with nature. Throw out the old. Declutter your living and work spaces!

Go through your wardrobe and give what you haven't used in over 6 months to a local charity shop. Make room for brand new energy to flow into your life. Both you and your dwellings will breathe easier, and the difference that can make to your happiness and productivity is huge. Start small, covering one room at a time. If you have a hard time letting go of things you haven't used or worn, imagine how happy they'll make someone who will actually use them. You will feel so much lighter afterwards.

Declutter your living space.

Find your nearest UK charity shop online - and if you're donating to charity, check first if they are funding animal testing here and choose a cruelty-free alternative. There's also Freecycle, "A grassroots and entirely nonprofit movement of people who are giving (and getting) stuff for free in their own towns. It's all about reuse and keeping good stuff out of landfills."
