Quick declutter challenge 2 – bedroom

How did the quick declutter challenge 1 – cosmetics go?  Did you find it difficult to do it quickly? Did you spend a lot of time making decisions about what to keep and what to let go?

Let’s start with question 1. 

Set a timer.  A timer can help you

  • to focus on the task because there is a deadline for you to stop.
  • to start because you know you only have to do the task for a short time and then it is over.
  • if you can see or hear the time clicking by, it builds a sense of urgency and importance

Play Music

  • Music can help people to focus by blocking out thoughts of other things on their minds.
  • Make a playlist of songs that will help to make the decluttering enjoyable.
  • Some people will like uptempo music to energize themselves.
  • Make your playlist for a set amount of time so when the music is done so is your time for decluttering.

Now for question 2

It can be difficult to make decisions when you are worried you will make the wrong decision. Trust yourself.  You make decisions all the time, what to eat, what to wear, where to live and when to exercise.  Develop some questions that help you to make decisions. Here are a few examples.

  • Do I need this?
  • Do I have space for it?
  • If I keep it will it help me to meet my goals?
  • What is the worst thing that will happen if I don’t have it?
