To create a calm aura in your bedroom, start by tidying your nightstand and removing anything you no longer use or need. Think books you’ve already read, outdated magazines, unused hand lotions or items from your purse purge. Keep only those things you use, such as a lamp, alarm clock and phone, or that soothe you or bring you joy, such as a photo of a loved one, a small vase or a special book. Having just a few items on your nightstand makes it easier to keep clean and dust-free.
Similarly, keep your exercise equipment (yoga mats, weights, exercise balls) in one area (perhaps close to the TV if you stream a workout). I keep all the accessories I need for walking — sunglasses, hat, gloves, earphones, sunscreen — in a drawer in my entryway table. That way I can get out the door without delay. Prepack your gym bag with toiletries, towels and other personal items. After laundering, you can place items right back into the bag or your dedicated gym clothes space.
Clean out the fridge and pantry. If you have to dig through a lot of items just to gather the ingredients to make a dish, it’s going to be inconvenient for you to create healthful meals and you may resort to easier, less nutritious options. Don’t let refrigerator clutter be an obstacle. After tossing old and spoiled foods, group the remaining items by category — vegetables, fruits, meats, condiments, breakfast foods — to make them easier to find. If salad is a staple, consider putting all your salad ingredients on a tray or in a small basket so you can pull them all out at once. Similarly, group ingredients for sandwich or juicing — or whatever category you prepare frequently.
I recommend you schedule time in your calendar for yourself and respect the appointment as you would any other. I also recommend deciding ahead of time how you’ll spend your “me time,” so that you don’t fritter it away weighing the possibilities.
