As you practice Discardia you'll probably start to get a sense for how long it will take to get a room to feel comfortable and unchaotic. This is a great talent because it will help you be less stressed over minor clutter and stay focused on implementing deeper changes.
Parents of toddlers* will find this useful in telling the difference between an hour's tidying after the kids are tucked in and bigger changes yet to be made.
Try to work your Discardian habits to the point that you can be comfortable with and trust in a tidal pattern where you know that your routines of decluttering will wash away debris and return you to a calm, peaceful, smoothness.
*Hello to Rinn who posted on a blog called Verbatim about the potential despair induced by little household Tasmanian devils and inspired today's tip. It's fun when people I don't know are learning about Discardia from other people I don't know. Hooray for memes!
