Feeling overwhelmed in a cluttered space?
Do you need like you need a fresh start? Does your mind feel foggy? Your space might be the cause. It is so important to maintain a clean and organized space, since it can directly affect your mood or even mental health. However, this is easier said than done.
While it's easy to become overwhelmed with everything that needs to get done, make sure you take a moment to step back and breathe. Once you have done so, try and focus on one task, instead of the entire project. This can look like creating a habit of waking up and making your bed every morning, or remembering to run the dishwasher every night. One small step can make the entire thing feel more manageable. It's important to not only learn how to create a clean space, but also to maintain it.
Once you have established these healthy habits, move on to tackling one small project a day. Does your bathroom need decluttering? Focus on going through your bathroom drawers that day. While you're tossing out old products, grab a rag and some water and clean out the drawer too!
These tips will help you realize that while it will be a lot of work, the satisfaction in completing the task and the motivation that comes along with it, will make it worth it in the long run! Here are a few more tips on where to begin your journey to a happy and clean household:
Start your load of laundry at night, so all you have to do is put it away in the morning
Run your dishwasher at the end of the day, so you have an empty dishwasher for the next day
Keep your closet as minimal as possible, if you purchase a clothing item, try to get rid of one you haven't worn in awhile
Set designated days for each task, for example: Laundry on Monday, changing bed sheets on Wednesday, etc.
"Reset" your kitchen every night, before you go to bed, wipe down your counter so the next morning you're awoken to a clean kitchen
