Getting started with minimalism can often be a bit overwhelming. If you’re not in a great space for a massive declutter right now, these 3 simple habits or tips will likely be more helpful for you.
I’ve been doing these 3 basic things pretty much every day for years, and it’s really helped me feel better and stay organised in my life.
- Make your bed every morning. Not only does it make your space look neat and tidy, studies also shows that completing a task (even a simple one like making your bed) first thing in the day can have positive side effects and help you with better flow for the rest of your day. I find this one is especially important if you spend a lot of time working or studying in your space. Clutter in our outside world / home space can sometimes cause un-necessary stress as well.
- Re-set and tidy up your living space before you go to bed. It only takes a few minutes, but it’s well worth it. I love waking up to a clean slate and not have to start the day cleaning up from the day before. If you are feeling sleepy and not very motivated, just set a 2-5 min timer in the evening and tidy up as much as you can in that short window. Your future you will thank you! 🙂
- Tidy up the kitchen. For the same reason as above really. I personally am not a fan of doing dishes in the morning, so I’d rather quickly do them at night and have them out of the way. I know my morning routine is better spent moving my body or setting intentions for the day, rather than having to clean and do dishes.
