After a hectic day, you need a welcoming place to relax and unwind, not another source of stimulation or stress. A daily trip to the spa is out of most people’s budgets. But worry not, only with a few simple changes, you can create a similar relaxing and tranquil atmosphere in your bedroom. All you need to do is removing some unnecessary items (or toss them for good) to make your bedroom cleaner and more relaxing. Check out these 8 things that should never be in your bedroom below to have a great relaxing space. Enjoy!

1. Desk Area

Putting a work space in the bedroom is just a bad idea. The bedroom is not for working in — its purpose is to help you relax, recharge and unwind.

2. Pillows That Don’t Bounce Back.

Just throw away the pillow that don’t bounce back. To find out, fold it in half and if it doesn’t spring back into shape, it’s probably past its prime. Trust us, a good pillow will help you sleep better.

3. Random Garbage

Gather all loose papers, piles of things, and items without a home and filter into what needs to be donated, tossed, and stored.

4. Books You’ve Already Read

Sometimes hardcovers serve as excellent conversation starters, but your bedroom isn’t a place where guests usually hang out. Hand off the nighttime reads you’ve already finished to a friend so they can enjoy them, too.

5. Clothes You Never Wear

Pull out the ones you rarely wear and donate them instead of letting them fill your closet to the brink.

6. Old Makeup

Products that were past their prime and found traces of harmful bacteria — which is just another reason to make sure you toss yours once they expire.

7. Outdated Gadget

Just throw away your outdated gadget. If you’re not currently using it, all it’s doing is adding clutter to your bedroom.

8. Overflowing Laundry Basket

There’s nothing like seeing this container packed to the brim to remind you of everything that’s on your plate and add even more stress to your life.
