Your space is your field of being, which is why you need to declutter and organize it to feel more purposeful and create an impact. Your space is an extension of your mind, even though it might seem like it’s just your bed or just your office.
Make the most of 2023: Useful tips for decluttering and organizing
Whatever is going on in your environment reflects what is going on inside you. This is because if you do not have a clean space, it will be difficult for you to concentrate, get good work done, or achieve your goals at the speed you need to. You might well be able to fulfill your goals from a clogged space, but unless you are okay with lagging behind, you need to declutter and organize before diving into the new year.
Here are some tips to organize your space and get more out of your life:
Start where you can.
If you are messy, then sometimes, it can be mentally stressful to figure out where to begin. Some piles of clothes or even junk can be so high that organization seems impossible. However, when you get into a situation like that, the trick is to start where you can. Sit down for a moment and ask yourself, “If you only had 10 minutes to tidy up, where would you start?” This means that you don’t have to do it all at once. Start with the most basic, easiest, and simplest parts. Little by little, the room or space will get cleaner.
Fix the things you do every day.
Another thing you can do is start with the things you do every day. What does your morning routine entail? Those places you visit every morning, as you are done with the process, tidy them up! After brushing your teeth, return the items to where they are supposed to belong. The more items you use, the more organized your space will become.
You can do this every month or every 3 to 6 months. Oftentimes, hoarding useless stuff can be a counter-productive habit. Many of us have wardrobe items or documents that we haven’t touched in a while but feel like they’re still useful. This is the trick. If you have not used it for 3–6 months, it is not useful. Clean it out!
Get everybody on board.
Finally, if you don’t live alone, you don’t have to do it alone. Remember, together, everyone achieves more. Have your family members and friends join in on the chores at home. At work, you can choose a certain day when everyone gets on board to declutter and organize the space. Not only will this make the process faster and easier, but it is also a great way to bond with your family members or coworkers toward achieving a shared goal.
