Why can't I keep my room tidy?

sofatutor magazine student

It is said that geniuses rule chaos. But it's really uncomfortable to study in a messy room. These tips will keep your room tidy. And you even save time.

  1. Every thing has its place. So that you know where you can "tidy up" something, you should think about what should be parked where beforehand. Things that you use frequently should be easy to get to. Unimportant items can also end up in a box, e.g. B. your handicrafts.
  2. Split up the tidying up. Tidying up your room shouldn't feel like an hour-long marathon. Instead, you can break it down into sections so that you develop routines. This shortens the tidying time overall: Do your parents like to do their laundry on Saturday mornings? Then put all dirty laundry in the laundry basket on Friday evening. Do you usually only eat something quickly in your room on Tuesday after a long day at school? Then put your dishes in the dishwasher on Wednesday morning before you even start.
  3. Make your bed every day. A quick morning routine will help you get the day off to a good start. You did something before you walked out the door. The side effect is a tidy bed and that's a nice bonus for your well-being.
  4. Boxes are your friends. In all honesty, not every corner of your room has to be perfectly tidy. Often times, boxes help create the illusion of order. Get a shelf to put your boxes on and label them. The same applies to magazine organizers, in which you can sort your exercise books.
  5. Free your room, free your mind! If you regularly sort and throw away or donate, you have fewer opportunities to fill up your room. Write a reminder on your calendar to clear out your room every two months. This is how you create space for your favorite things.
  6. Discover untapped potential. You don't have a place for your favorite action characters yet? Then you can consider adding an extra shelf to the wall to properly display your collectibles. At the same time, you have more space on your shelves for things that you need daily or regularly.
  7. Clear your desk before studying. So that you can fully concentrate on learning, tidy up your workplace. Anything not useful for that particular subject that you want to repeat next disappears. Only your to-do list, a timer, and a slip of paper for fleeting thoughts should be left on the desk.
  8. Break up if you haven't used it in a year. Not sure if you want to part with something? Pack them in a plastic bag to protect them from dirt and stow them in the garage or basement. If you have no use for this item for a year, you can give it away or throw it away. Of course, this does not apply to family photos or heirlooms.
  9. Don't expect too much at once. You won't become a cleaning devil overnight. Nobody expects that from you either. Start with small steps. See if a little routine helps you, e.g. B. Bring your dishes straight back into the kitchen. Little by little you can add or adjust routines. This will keep you relaxed while tidying up.
