Good Clutter

Photo by Linda SamuelsClutter is part of our lives. Have you ever thought about nourishing vs. unproductive clutter? One standard definition of clutter is “to fill or cover with scattered or disordered things that impede movement or reduce effectiveness.” Unproductive clutter drains us. What if instead, we reframed the concept of clutter and only pursued clutter that yielded a positive outcome? What if we only sought out good clutter?

Nourishing clutter has a rejuvenating effect. It fills our lives with family, friends, meaningful work, experiences and downtime. Instead of our homes becoming overrun, we trade the excess stuff that drains our energy for experiences and people that replenish us. By shifting the focus of our collections away from things, we can alter our relationship to our possessions and become more vibrant.

What would be possible if you filled your life with nourishing clutter?

Good idea in juggling focus. People are more important than things. Many say that and some believe that, some of the time. I hope.

Thanks so much for adding your thoughts, Jolly. I like your term "juggling focus."
