When you’re thinking of how you’re going to accomplish your New Year’s resolution, how your closet can help you achieve your goals might not be the first thing to come to mind. But depending on your resolution, you might be surprised. Here’s a look at a few common types of resolutions, along with some of the ways your closet can keep you on track:
If you’ve gained a few items this holiday season, you may have noticed clutter starting to build around the house. Don’t worry you’re not alone. Decluttering is one of the most common resolutions out there.
Regardless of whether you just need to make a little room or a lot, the closet is a great place to start. Many of us tend to conclude our organizing sessions by stuffing our closet full of things we’re uncertain about getting rid of and promising ourselves we’ll take care of them “later”. If you start organizing your house by cleaning out your closet you’ll be more mindful of what items you’ll allow to hang around.
There are other benefits of starting here too. Depending on when your last cleanout was, you may even rediscover some items you’ve lost or forgotten about, potentially saving you some money on a replacement. Plus, that good feeling you get from recycling or giving unwanted items to someone in need is a great way to begin the new year.
If your resolution is more fitness related, your custom closet can help you by providing an area to place a reminder or two.
Hanging your next day’s gym clothes on a valet rod the night before can help you summon a little determination when that little voice in your head suggests skipping a day.
If you have an outfit that you want to look great in by August, displaying it prominently in your closet will help you keep your goal top-of-mind during the cold and dreary days of February.
Sometimes seemingly small resolutions fall victim to the daily time-crunch. Finding even a few minutes each day to do things like read, reflect, or to simply have a few moments to ourselves, can be difficult, especially in the short days of winter.
If you’ve struggled to incorporate these types of resolutions into your daily routine, you might want to look to your closet for help. Display books, small beauty tools, or other items related to your resolution on an island or elsewhere in your closet where they will catch your eye as you’re getting ready for the day. Then, take a few moments and attend to your goal before you leave the house. Accomplishing something meaningful in the morning will give you some momentum that will help you achieve more throughout your day. Do this consistently enough and before you know it, you will be proud of all you’ve accomplished and ready for a new set of resolutions!
