Simon, I’m struggling with depression and would like to tidy my apartment since cleaning is one of the things that really helps me feel like I’ve been productive — do you have any tips for cleaning thoroughly and efficiently?


Run around the room in a timed way, collecting everything out of ace. Pile it in the center of the room. Then make a game of putting the things away in groups. I mean it. Make a game. Give yourself rewards. Put on music. Sing and dance. And be very dedicated to throwing out or giving away anything you haven’t used or looked at in over a year. Have a box at the ready for all those things. Dust. It improves a sense of cleanliness. Do the floors last.
