Moving back home into the smallest space avaliable, I was faced with the reality that the state of my surroundings had a great affect on my mood and my productivity.
My very small living space was for sleep, work, and creativity. In order to make this functional for me I had to maximize my space and keep things to a minimum.
When I see clutter, I started to feel stressed and suddenly my focus was on cleaning it all up instead of creating, grading, or resting.
When ever this happen, I have started using this as a signal from my brain that it's time to tidy up. To me the vision of my space needs to include clear surfaces that are clutter free.
Who knew that creating a vision of what you want your life and space to look like will get you there quicker.
I challenge you to ask yourself these three questions:
1) Am I willing to create a space that aligns with the lifestyle I envision for myself?
2) Is my current space functional?
If not, if I declutter, minimize, and purge out what I no longer want or need will it make it functional?
3)What does my ideal space look like, pull out you a sketch pad and start creating. (You might have to look at a couple of Pinterest boards, YouTube videos, Instagram hashtags and Tumblr blogs). Start shifting some things around, for me moving my bed and desk made a world of difference for me.
What ever it takes this fall the goal is to "Fall in Love With Your Space".
Until Next Time.
