11 ways to declutter your mind & home

Spring is officially here, and there couldn’t be a more appropriate time to reset your routine and organize your home. Messy drawers, cluttered surfaces, and crowded closets undeniably contribute to feelings of stress and anxiety. “I’ll put those clothes away later”, turns into leaving unfolded clothes in a pile indefinitely. “Just a few” junk drawers turns into half a dresser of mixed up items. Over time, these things add up to create an overwhelming environment where it’s hard to relax or focus in your home. Organizing is a therapeutic process. 

Not sure where to begin? Start small. A little task, like making your bed every morning, can be a huge game changer. Tackle your bedroom, one drawer at a time. We shouldn’t underestimate the power of organized drawers to clear our minds and set us up for success in other areas of our lives. It’s more important than you think to prioritize creating the tidiest living space possible. 

Organizing your home doesn’t have to be a headache. In the end, you’ll feel calmer and more optimistic, and you’ll feel more at ease in your living . You might only need to build an extra 15-20 minutes into your daily routine to make sure you stay on top of your organizational tasks. Realistically, it may take a while before this becomes a habit. Try to make it fun, and make a routine out of it. 

Haven’t figured out the best organization methods for tidying up yet? Thankfully, you don’t need to be Marie Kondo to create a more orderly living space. However, following the lead of people with great organizational habits will give you the inspiration you need. We want to share 11 easy habits organized people use to create a more orderly living space. Check out the full visual below from Tommy John that illustrates these habits you can adopt to create a better home this spring:
