How To Have A Tidy Room + Create Good Energy


Being quite a messy person wanting to have a cleaned and tidied up room is quite hard actually. Constantly trying to remind myself to tidy up my room can be quite exhausting. But with a few tips, which I am going to share here, I am actually doing really well! Well.. except for the clothes that is currently on my floor from when I came home from work yesterday evening. I was just so tired and want to get out of my work clothes and under my blanket as quickly as possible. But I promise as soon as I am finished here the clothes will be gone! But before that let's get into this:

Everything should have a place
If something doesn't have a place it tends to just lie around and be in the way. Moving it to wherever has the space now. With everything having a space you know where everything is and where it needs to be. It's easier to find things and it's easier to clean up any mess that may occur.

Everything should have a purpose
When I say purpose I don't mean that everything has to be useful in the sense of scissors and pencils are useful. Yeah, they are definitely needed so they are keepers. But, I also mean useful in the way the item makes you feel. A purpose like, inspiring you, bring you joy or making you happy. Your decor should also have a purpose. A framed quote that inspires you. A picture that makes you happy. Plants that brings you joy and life. Those kinds of purposes.

Take 5-10 min out of your day to declutter your place/room
Either before you go to sleep or when you wake up so you have a clean room to start the day. 5-10 minutes is nothing compared to the hours you'll have to clean when everything is piled up and there is no way out than to get to work. By doing it every day it only takes a couple of minutes (unless you are really, really, really messy) and you'll have a calmer mind.

One day a week to clean surfaces and vacuum the floor
I don't think it's necessary to clean surfaces and vacuum your floor every day. Have one day a week, the same day, preferably, and stick to it. I am so much more motivated to get things done if there isn't dust everywhere. Vacuuming is also a really good workout, just saying, haha.

Have a treat
If you find it very very hard to tidy up your room have a treat. It could be an episode of a series. You cannot watch that episode before your room is decluttered. This can be really, really hard to follow but if you stick to it, it's the trick to get it done. No 'How to Get Away with Murder' before you have washed the dishes and cleared your room, Soluuna!

Having a good energy is essential. Obviously, having a clean room is key but here are a few things I have found also bring a good vibe to your room. Some of them are feng shui inspired and some are just tips I have found along the way that works really well:

Good energy in your room:

Make sure there is nothing under your bed
The absolute worst place to store things, most likely a pile of 'don't really care' is under your bed. Your bed needs to be cleared for you to have a good sleep.

Have a few flowers/plants
Living greens bring life to your room and your place. They do not have to be everywhere but just a few here and there really helps the energy in the room.

Only have things you LOVE
I have said it before but here it comes again. If you don't love it why do you have it? If you don't use it why do you have it? Getting rid of things you don't love gives the absolute best energy in your room!

Empty your bin every day or every second day
Now hear me out. Emptying your bin every day may seem extreme. But this is cluttered energy too. So by getting rid of it you have a clear energy and that will always feel best. You can just do it every other day. Take notice as what you throw out and see if you can minimize your waste. 

Fresh air at least once a day
Fresh air is essential to a good room environment! Open your window 10 - 20 minutes when you wake up will give you clear air for the day. If you want to doing it before you go to bed is amazing too.

5 minutes to clear your room from clutter
If you are a person, like me, who throws things everywhere, not really putting it at its place but instead just at the floor, then this is a good idea. Take five minutes, either before you go to bed or when you wake up to just tidy up what you have left around. This helps a lot with a clear space. And it's only five minutes. Your space will never look like a (complete) mess.
