Tidy Mind

“The objective of cleaning is not just to clean, but to feel happiness living within that environment.” — Marie Kondo

One habit I have (but don’t keep track of, rather do it compulsively) is tidying up my living spaces. I find it quite enjoyable to organize, put things in their proper place, clean the dishes (out of the sink), knolling, and getting things ready (for when they are needed).

A clean room is clarity.

Or put another way, when you’re space is clear, your mind is clear. But it’s also the act of tidying that gives you a break from what you were / are doing and let’s your mind wander and roll in the background, like a distant thunderstorm.

My aim is to focus on what I need to focus on, and although I can manage to work in almost any reasonable environment, removing physical distractions removes the mental stress of thinking about future todos or my surroundings.

STAY BOLD, Keep Pursuing,
