2020, what a stressful year, right?
With the coronavirus (COVID-19) still out there, we’re definitely overwhelmed with fear and anxiety. And most of the time, even doing small household chores like decluttering feels demanding!
Above all else, the awful immensity of the pandemic makes the weight of quarantine really heavier, making us feel lost. And yes, we know that it’s so hard to get the motivation and self-discipline to destress.
Add working from home, new routines and unusual schedules, the whole family staying inside more than usual, and the redundancy of lockdown boredom. Everything feels unmanageable and out of hand
Although, the only real way to move and turn the home in its fullest potential is to do a reset!
So, if you:
feel puzzled and lost
need some assistance to help with quarantine anxiety and self-discipline
don’t know where to begin
are struggling with the new normal of everything
just want to keep everything in control and take the house back
indifferent and stressed out
It’s clearly time for a reset!
Time for a reset!
Now, getting past the pandemic may seem hopeless, but it’s definitely not impossible. It’s time for us to savour our lives, be more progressive, and live stress-free. And one sure way to push the reset button is to clean and declutter!
Every little good thing takes time and deliberate steps. Life has a way of putting us into places where our hopeful way of thinking seems impracticable, but let’s take it one step at a time.
Here are five easy steps to surely help you push the reset button and ease the lockdown anxiety:
Distraction is prevalent during these times. Almost every time, we let technology come in our way. It’s time to put down our devices and seize the day.
Inspect all rooms and purposely be proactive with your clutter. Acknowledge that it’s too easy for clutter to pile up in your home, no matter how neat and tidy you are. Spruce up every room, from the kitchen, bedroom, and bathroom.
Organize The Pantry
To some, lockdown days seem to be faster than usual. Retrospectively, we tend to forget about food storage! Now is the best time to review the expiration date of stored food and rid the pantry of expired and undesired goods.
Check All Surfaces
As much as we neglect them, surfaces are places of clutter. Assess what you really need and begin clearing your surfaces. Trust me, your eyes will thank you later. A clean surface is a surface without stress.
Make that Kitchen Sink Shine
Still frustrated with the state of your home? End your day with a clean, sparkling kitchen sink. Trust me, it works wonders!
Remember, clutter equals stress. No mess means no stress!
Plus, you don’t have to do it alone! If you have kids, you can make this a fun activity for them to engage and learn. Realistically, it can be done!
Since the kids are always inside the house, we have to get them involved. I know it’s not easy, but it’s definitely worth the effort. Involve them in de-cluttering their stuff by letting them decide on their own clutter. Pack toys they don’t play with anymore and donate them to a local charity or a preschool.
Lastly, decluttering brings some peace of mind, and more clutter and stress is the last thing anyone needs during the current coronavirus situation.
