These 7 Things Should Be Taken Out Of Your Bedroom
Get rid of these things and make your bedroom a place where you can unwind from the stress of everyday life
If you’re having a tough time relaxing in your bedroom, i.e. the place where you should most be able to relax, it may mean that there are things inside which hinder you from having some down time. From clutter, to expired products, to flattened pillows, here are some of the things that you should take out of your private space so you can make the most of your time alone.
1. Old pillows
Keeping your pillows poses several health risks: First, old and flattened pillows fail to provide support for your neck, and second, these are also prone to dust mite infestations. One way to see if your pillows are still good is by folding them in half and seeing if they spring back into shape. If they don’t, they’re probably better off thrown away.
2. Expired makeup/hygiene products
Studies show that makeup and hygiene products that have already expired exhibit traces of harmful bacteria, therefore causing irritation, redness, and infections, which makes them dangerous to use. Do yourself a favor and chuck these items to the trash.
3. A desk
The bedroom is mainly for sleep and relaxation, which is why all the things that can keep you from being able to rest should be taken away. One of these things is your desk or work table. Keeping this inside your bedroom will only remind you of the stressful tasks you need to finish and will not help you unwind.
4. Unused or rarely-worn clothes
Instead of letting your closet overflow with so many clothes, why not take those you don’t really wear and donate or sell them? This way, you lessen clutter and free up space for newer pieces you’ll be able to wear more.
5. Laundry basket
Just like your desk, a laundry basket filled to the brim with dirty clothes can only remind you of tasks you have yet to finish. Better keep this basket in your laundry area to make washing easier.
6. Random clutter
We already know that too much clutter can put precious space to waste, as well as add unnecessary stress. The same applies to a bedroom. Keeping too much random things—old books and magazines, outdated gadgets, papers, knickknacks, even food wrappers—inside your private space can also keep you from being able to relax.
7. Things you want to donate
If you decide to donate some of your old items and have stored them in boxes, make sure to take them to the places where you’ll be donating them, to avoid having the boxes take up space in your room.
