Spring cleaning. It's something we know we need to do. But how do we start?
We think we're finally ready after reading this article by Functional Medicine Practitioner, William Cole, D.C., on how he tackled Spring cleaning this year. Inspired by one of our favorite books, The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up: The Japanese Art of Decluttering and Organizing, we found the below tips super useful.
Detox your closet.
We know you've already detoxed your scent, but it's time to look at your closet. Those shorts from 7 years ago that you keep telling yourself you will wear and are just waiting for the perfect occasion? It's time to let them go. The key to this detox is to hold up each piece of clothing in your closet and ask yourself "does this give me joy". If the answer is no, it's time to move on.
Organize those hangers.
There is nothing more calming than opening your closet doors to see a rainbow of colors from white to red to blue with nothing out of place. The pros say to take a stab at organizing your closet by color via the Kondo method. For us, we say just organize your closet in the way that works for you - as long as there's a system. Pants to shorts to dresses - why not?
Move to the drawers.
We always find drawers to be so difficult to keep organized. Seriously, how do you do it? It turns out, the Kondo method is the solution. Try sushi rolling your clothes and then organizing them by color. It will change your life.
A clean bedroom means a clean mind for us. Happy cleaning, loves!
