The cooler weather does bring a few things I dread – swapping out my summer wardrobe, finding places to store all my sunhats and bikinis, and finding a new routine.
This year, instead of doing my usual half-clean or stuffing cute summer dresses in a bag that never make it to Goodwill, I decided to take it more seriously. I wanted to invest in ways to declutter and organize my life that last all through fall and into any season.
After a bit of research, here are 3 easy steps I found to improve my cleaning routine and make a long-term difference in my space:
Minimize your interior
I’ve found that when you own less, there’s less to manage and stress over. The room in my home that felt the most crowded was my bedroom, so that's where I started. I got rid of knick-knacks, donated the books stacked in the corner, and finally went through the paperwork that had become a tower of terror on my desk.
I have to say decluttering was exactly what I needed; I've already noticed that I'm not as stressed or anxious.
Even better, through minimizing my space, I had the motivation to find someone to help me haul away my bulky, out-of-style bed frame.
Maximize your space
When searching for a new bed frame online, I came across The Bed, by Thuma. The sophisticated frame features clean lines and subtle curves that provide the perfect minimalist foundation to upgrade any space.This frame seemed like the perfect piece to help me make the most out of my bedroom.
I was shocked at how easy assembly was — I didn’t need any tools or metal hardware thanks to the sleek and functional Japanese joinery. The Bed, By Thuma is composed of upcycled rubberwood and is offered in three shades: Natural, Walnut and the brand new Espresso that looks good with any aesthetic.
The Bed, By Thuma is built to last a lifetime, and its quality craftsmanship means it’s sturdy, quiet, and supportive. All this without taking up necessary space or being an eyesore like my last bed frame!
Cultivate a healthy lifestyle
Adopting the first two steps set me up for success for the third. Now that I wake up refreshed and recharged in The Bed, By Thuma it’s much easier to make healthier choices throughout the day. And my first healthy decision was upgrading my sleep.
Sleep plays such a vital role when it comes to maintaining a healthy lifestyle, so I invested in The Mattress by Thuma which fits perfectly within The Bed. It’s made with high-quality materials, is ultra-breathable, and it’s GREENGUARD Gold certified. Plus, it’s naturally cooling so I can ditch my loud fan.
I’m sleeping way deeper than I have before – no sweating, tossing, or turning! I never imagined I’d have the motivation to establish a truly healthy lifestyle, but now that I’m consistently getting a good night’s sleep, I have the energy to do things I wouldn’t usually do.
I’m taking the stairs instead of the elevator, going for walks in the park with friends rather than meeting up virtually to play video games, and even choosing more nutritious meals.
These helpful steps ensure that I started the season with better health, better sleep, and the energy to tackle whatever challenges come my way.
If you’re tired of being bogged down by resolutions that are impossible to keep, I suggest finding ways to declutter and reorganize your life.
We all know that sleep is essential to literally everything we do. That’s why investing in The Bed and The Mattress is the first step. Trust me when I say, Thumawill enhance your life this year and many more to come.
