It’s easy to get distracted these days. A million different things are vying for our attention at any given time. But the world isn’t about to quiet down anytime soon. It’s up to us to create spaces in which we can find tranquility—ones where we can sit down and focus on a given task, recharge, or take a little time for ourselves. As we head into the New Year, we’d like to share a couple of ways you can set up your home to cut back on distractions and create a sense of calm. Here are some tips to get you started.
A Warm Welcome Home
After a long day, stepping through your front door should feel like a weight coming off your shoulders. A custom organizer for a mudroom or entryway can make all the difference here. With a stylish space to hang a coat, set down the workbag, and take off shoes, you’ve got yourself a way of keeping track of the things you need to get in and out of the door every day. In this way, an organizer will help you reduce clutter while also keeping your home free of the dirt and mud tracked in from outside.
Clutter is always a source of distraction. As you walk past a sink full of dishes, coats gathering on the back of a seat, or a pile of clothes near, but not quite in the laundry bin, you make a mental note to deal with it later. But life keeps moving. The mess compounds. And that “later” gets pushed back further and further. All of a sudden, your mental note has become a list of chores that can take all day to tackle. How can we avoid this? Give your effort in increments.
Working In Increments
We can’t always deal with a mess as soon as it’s created. Sometimes we have good reasons to put things off and put our energy elsewhere. But there are still practical ways to avoid building a mountain of clutter. We suggest setting aside small bits of time once or twice a day to take care of a few chores. It can be as simple as setting aside 10 minutes in the morning and 10 in the evening.
