Take Note: Life, De-cluttered

We might have missed the memo on tackling our “spring cleaning,” but keeping our physical space organized is something we can achieve without making it an event—which can be beneficial for our mental wellbeing, too. Deal with your daily mess with a few easy tips: Start your morning off by making your bed; it sets the tone for the rest of your day. Be sure to sort through your mail when it comes in, recycling catalogs and tossing things to be shredded into a single receptacle. And at night before you hit the hay, take a few moments to “reset” your home by tidying up the stray items—wedges, gauzy sweaters, clutches, et al—that have amassed throughout the day. And for those who are looking for further inspiration on how to pull it together, we’ve already pre-ordered the adorably sized The Little Book of Tidying: Declutter Your Home and Your Life.)
