    I've found its helpful to clean my room I'm sections! For example, clean bt rainbow! Clean up anything red first, then orange things, and so on.

      THAT'S SO SMART. WHAT?! And that makes it so fun. You're a genius, Blue.

    I've had a hoarder style depression room my entire life, I'm never really fully able to clean it. I usually try to clean in small bits and take it slowly. Sometimes I just set a minute timer on my phone and just do everything I can in that minute. Then I'm done for the day if I feel that's all I can do. Also cleaning the parts that affect others, like shared dishes, helps me to feel less guilty about the whole thing.

    I always go by what’s most important to clear out. Always grab a trash bag and get any trash in the room out right away. Then I would put all laundry in a pile to start going through that stuff over the next week. I always notice that if I have a clean table even just 1 it helps clear my mind a little even if the floor is still dirty so I try to do that. I try to sanitize what I can. Everything else is clutter. At least the room is clean it just has some stuff to organize now so I just put everything into one big bucket or laundry basket and work through putting a little bit of it away each day until i empty the bucket. That way you have a “clean” room instantly and can maybe get the energy to finish organize because of that too.

    I agree with Blue. It also helps to do one task at a time. If you don’t want to go by color go by category: clothes, books, desk, etc… Make realistic goals. Even if you just do one thing. That’s good enough. I also put on music which sets a mood. It allows me to go into my own world while I do the mindless task of straightening up.

      I do the music thing also helps a lot I make 2 dirty piles whites and colors hang up or fold and put up what I can. Blankets and jackets I fold or hang up as I coke across them. Tomorrow I'm going thru as much of the clothing as I can getting ready for yard sale. That will help with my hoard/clutter of a room. I haven't even slept in there in 2 maybe 3 months and I need to get to where I can asap

    I set a timer for 30 min, put my music on and get whatever I can done. Even if it's not finished, something is better than nothing and you feel better that you accomplished it
