The Hotel Exercise to help you declutter

Updated: Jan 15

I thought it would be fun to give you a peek at one of the journal exercises in the Declutter Your World Program - here's one from Phase 1 to get members of the program excited for the results to come:


When you have a moment to yourself, imagine that you win an all-expenses paid vacation at a very nice hotel. Everything at home and work is taken care of by other people. It’s just you and you have a whole suite to yourself.


(If that stresses you out, imagine a friend has a room down the hall of the hotel and you both plan on hanging out the entire time).





You unlock the door to the hotel room, put down your luggage, and check out the suite.


What do you see?

What does the bed look like?

What does the kitchen look like?

What does the bathroom look like?


How do you feel?

How does it feel to not have anything on the surfaces of the bathroom, kitchen, and dressers?

Do you feel expansive? Calm? Secure?

Or do you feel anxious? Tight? Unsure?


If you feel expansive, calm, and/or secure:

Journal about your feelings and what you see. What do you love about this suite? What changes would you make to it if any? What would it feel like if your personal items replaced the art/decor in the suite? How does it feel? Let yourself sit with the images and feelings of the suite as you declutter your home.


If you feel anxious, tight, and/or unsure:

Journal about your feelings and what you see. What is making you uncomfortable? Is it empty space? What if there were a few items on each of the surfaces, how does that feel? Let yourself play around with how much stuff there is and what makes you comfortable. Decluttering is different for everyone and there is no “wrong” hotel room image. The main thing is that you feel calm and secure in this space. Once you get to an image that you feel comfortable with, write out a description so you can go back to it. Let yourself sit with the images and feelings of the suite you created as you declutter your home.
