One habit that I try hard to cultivate is to stay on top of clutter.

Clutter seems trivial, but I've found - and many people have told me that they're the same way - that clutter weighs me down more than it should. Something like a crowded coat closet or an overflowing inbox is a petty problem, but then when I clear out that area, I feel so much more energetic, creative, and happy. It's weird.
