De-clutter: Part 2
Keeping your physical space clear of clutter helps your mind seem more calm and efficient. A calmer mind can positively affect your health. Give these ideas a try to help:
-Use sports caddies and shoe cubbies (you can get them at discount organizer stores, or used at second hand shops), to hold shoes, socks, hats and backpacks by the garage or back door. Then you are not wasting 10 minutes every day picking up other peoples stuff, and it helps avoid the chaos in the morning when your kids are running to catch the bus and can’t find their shoes or book bags).
-Organize and pair down your wardrobe. If you haven’t worn it in 2 years, or it looks ready for give-away, let it go. Donate. It’s easier to make a.m. dressing choices (or my kids get their school clothes out the night before school) with 10 well chosen pieces then a closet full of outdated, ill-fitting pieces.
-Attach hooks to hang bags, hats and coats on. Try to do laundry on a schedule, then you’re not spending your time off folding laundry all weekend!
-Cook and par-cook vegetables and seafood and poultry for your weekly snacks and meals. One well spent hour can save you time throughout your week, and save you money from not getting carryout and drive through.
Try to utilize some of these de-cluttering ideas and see if they give you a bit of piece-of-mind, which can positively affect your health and mental well being.
