Finding things a bit much at the moment? You’re not alone. The pandemic is known to be taking its toll on our collective mental health, and new research from the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health (CAMH) in Toronto found that it is particularly affecting the mental health of women.
If that sounds familiar, there are positive steps you can take to take control and make sense of the craziness. A great place to start is by decluttering your life, to create order in the face of chaos.
To help you take this step, our brand new sister site My Imperfect Life is offering everyone who signs up to their newsletter a FREE Declutter Your Life ebook - a complete guide on how to organise, plan, refine and focus your life.
Whether you’re feeling overwhelmed by certain aspects of your life or just fancy a fresh start, this comprehensive and interactive book is here to help you take control and get rid of the unnecessary - in your space, in your day-to-day, and in your mind.
