Do I organise my whole apartment before going to bed? Yes, I do, but I don’t mean I go through every drawer or cupboard every night and declutter and organise it. Instead, I spend about 20-30 minutes in the evening ensuring I put everything away. I make sure I put dirty clothes in the washing basket, clean garments in the closet, shoes back on the shoe rack, rubbish in the bin, etc. Spending some time tidying my home before hitting the hay helps create a sense of calm, preparing me for a good night’s sleep.
To make this process easier, each item I own has its designated place. That way I am not wasting time deciding where things should go. I simply put things back where they belong. And yes, there are times when I am too tired to do this and will go straight to bed; however, when I do tidy before bed, I start my day in a better mood than when I don’t.
Look at developing the habit of tidying your home before going to bed to experience the positivity that comes with starting your day in an organised space. If the thought of organising your home before going to sleep seems overwhelming, consider decluttering your home. I have found that living with less does help make my evening organising routine easier.
