When you commit to organizing and decluttering your daily routines, you’ll live a more consistently relaxed lifestyle. Read this article for some helpful tips.
Busy lives can often lead to cluttered spaces, which result in unnecessary stress.
Clutter creates mental and emotional strains. Plus amassing too much stuff (papers, plastic items, etc) also hurts our earth’s environment by increasing our carbon footprint.
Here are some tips on how to create a more peaceful environment for yourself, so you can live a more consistently relaxed lifestyle.
The burden of a clutter-filled home can make it hard to feel relaxed after a hard day of work or non-stop errand running.
When you stay on top of the mess, you’re better able to keep your mind stress-free.
Imagine a daily task such as cooking dinner interrupted by sifting through that old Tupperware cabinet for a bowl – or tripping over the dog’s abundance of toys scattered on the kitchen floor. Ugh! This kind of clutter can make cooking feel aggravating and stressful.
These rituals – once ingrained – can help you to feel more relaxed comfortable in your home.
Oh – and – consider how you can use less plastic storage bowls! Try switching over to dishwasher-friendly and oven-friendly Pyrex glass storage bowls instead.
Just like a messy living space, a messy car can derail a relaxed disposition.
Pick a day of the week – like Monday. Make this the day that you ritually clean up your car – removing any leftover fast food bags, empty water bottles, and extra pairs of shoes.
With a clean car, all that is left to do is focus on the road ahead. You’ll turn what can feel like a stress-inducing long car ride into some nice, relaxing alone time.
Bonus: Cleaning your car can even promote sustainability by eliminating extra weight and using less fuel.
The workplace is often a symbol of stress for individuals.
Decluttering and utilizing organization tools can make the workplace a more enjoyable relaxing environment.
Creating a mess-free life leads to ample relaxation while also benefiting the push for eco-friendly habits in our daily lives.
And by de-cluttering your most commonly messy areas (such as your living space, car, and workplace), you negate stress and commit to sustainability. It’s a win/win/win!
