The Covid quarantine – although scary, frustrating, and unprecedented – has gifted many of us this time at home to reconnect with loved ones and to take on projects that we normally wouldn’t find the time for. We’ve seen them all on social media: baking a new pastry every day, virtual workout classes, and Tik Tok challenges, just to name a few. Although one way to look at quarantine is that you now have time at home to tackle all the things you’ve been putting off, the reality is that this time at home is not necessarily “free.”
You have a lot on your plate. You have been cooking and caring for your family, you have become a home school teacher, and you’re probably disinfecting everything 17 times a day. Work, kids, school, and everyday stress come up and interfere without warning. So even though you are physically at home, you are likely both physically and emotionally drained.
Maybe you still feel like giving your home an extreme makeover like you see on TV. Maybe you still think you’ll get to it next week. But it’s time to get honest with yourself — if you were going to do any of these projects you had planned, you would have done them already. If that project is not done by now, it’s not getting done.
I’m not shaming you, I’m telling you it’s okay. It’s okay to admit that you haven’t been able to focus on home improvement projects with all of these other distractions around you. It’s okay to not be able to do everything yourself. However, what’s not okay is letting personal improvement fall by the wayside because you don’t have the time.
When it comes to my closet organization services, the most common thing I hear from clients’ feedback is that they never realized how much of a problem their disorderly closet was until it was finally organized; or that the closet was that thing they kept putting off. If you want your day to begin on the right foot, it’s time to start where your day starts…your closet.
I recently realized that I am more productive and just feel better overall when I get dressed and put some makeup on. Not to say there aren’t days when staying in PJs happens, because there have been A LOT of those days. But I feel more ready for the day when I’m physically ready. In addition, it helps to know exactly where to find my clothes. I know where to find my sundresses that are hung up, and I know in which drawers to find tee shirts and shorts. I get ready quicker, getting back the time that I used to spend digging through drawers and piles of clothes.
Organizing your closet is a big undertaking, with the physical work to be done and also the emotional toll it takes deciding what clothes to say goodbye to. It’s okay if you don’t have the time, energy, or even the emotional capacity to take on your messy closet. That is where I come in! I’ll create a positive, peaceful, zen place for your day to start. Knowing where to find everything, and owning only what you truly love, will kickstart your day for the better!
