Calm Mind, Clean Home

When the world around us feels chaotic, it’s hard to keep that stress and uncertainty from affecting your mental well-being. With extra time at home, you might be feeling frustration about any untidiness or clutter in your living space. OPL staff have put together their recommended resources to help you get started in clearing your mind and creating a calm and orderly environment around you.

You might consider cutting down how much time you spend staring at your phone and other screens with these resources on doing a Digital Detox. To support a calm mind and a sense of focus, try exploring Yoga, Mindfulness and Meditation.

When you have time and energy to focus on other projects, take a look around the house. OPL has plenty of books to check out to help you Get Organized, as well as eBooks on home organization and gardening.

Whether you’re looking to tidy up a home office, or preserve a precious collection there are resources to aid you in Organizing and Digitizing Home Files, Photos and More.

If you want more suggestions, need to renew your library card, or just want a chance to talk to a librarian directly, OPL is still here. While the libraries are closed, staff are available Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. both online through AskOPL and by phone at 402.444.4800.
