A messy house grates on me. I'm a firm believer in clear space, clear mind. Clutter stresses me out.
That's why I loved Venuebook founder, Kelsey Recht's simple hack: "Just close the door."
The kids' rooms are a mess. Close the door. My closet is a disaster. Close the door. The garage needs to be cleaned out. Close the door.
Yes, it's a short-term fix, but so often, cleaning can feel like Ground Hog Day, just repeating itself each morning. A day off translates to free time.
What part of your life can you close the door on? Create ways to feel OK with dropping the ball on things that don't matter today to make room for what does.
Life's too short
