In this podcast, Lesley talks to Clutter Fairy client, Cheryl Magowan, about the impact the decluttering journey had on her life and the change in direction she subsequently followed.

Lesley worked with Cheryl over 5 years ago and went through a full home declutter. Cheryl had a big impact on Lesley and vice versa so it is an interesting story to listen to. The story of her decluttering journey is honest, impactful and insightful.

In this episode we discuss:

  • The impact Cheryl's upbringing had on her relationship with stuff.
  • How shopping with her Mum became a regular social activity.
  • How Cheryl's childhood experiences with mealtimes had an impact on her adult relationship with food.
  • Having a professional alongside you during your decluttering journey can facilitate self reflection.
  • Cheryl's big dream to become a yoga teacher was being stifled by clutter.
  • 2 yogic strands are directly related to simplification and non-attachment - Ahimsa and Aparigraha. 
  • An overwhelming feeling of shame about the clutter had led to a feeling of being continually judged.The decluttering journey tackled this.
  • People who live a life with clutter deserve to be helped and they shouldn't have to suffer in silence.
