You can do it! The rest of the categories are just like the first. Take one category at a time and soon you’ll be finished with your tidying festival.

Step 5: Put loving energy into your hands and tell your clothing how grateful you are for it and give it praise.

Step 4: Focus only on what you’re keeping and not on what you’re discarding.
As you discard, thank each item for its service, and gently fold and place each item in a bag for donation. Once you’ve gathered all your discarded items, again, give each donation bag a loving pat and say thank you.
Showing gratitude for the service that our things have provided for us will really help us to appreciate why we need only keep things that spark joy and also to only purchase the things that we want and love.
