Decluttering Reduces Your Stress

You’re having a rough day. Traffic got to you. Your office mate got a little heated and took your blood pressure through the roof. Then, you see a ton of bills in your mailbox. And, the final straw is you walk in your home and there is chaos everywhere. Too much furniture in all the rooms. Closets bulging full and you can’t find the shirt you wanted. Boxes lying around the house. It just doesn’t feel good and you cannot relax. Does this sound familiar. Get started decluttering your home and life today and you’ll feel so much better.

Goal of Decluttering
There are two main goals of simplifying your environment:

  • Clearing out things that you no longer need or that no longer bring you joy, and
  • Purging and cleaning up areas where things tend to get messy and disorganized.

Walking in your home feeling the chaos gives you the of being overwhelmed. As you purge and clean up the chaos, it reduces our overall stress load.

In her book, The Superstress Solution, physician and author Roberta Lee writes that “a disorganized, untidy, clutter-filled home is not only a symptom of stress but also a source of stress. Clean up the litter and you’ll dial up the calm”.

According to Lee, “research shows that we secrete the stress hormone cortisol when surrounded by disarray. Bad news for your body. But the good news is that you know exactly what to do about it. With a quick tidy-up, you could reclaim both your surroundings and your serenity”.

Declutter Plan

  • Call a Junk Removal Service to find out how they can help you with junk hauling, debris pick up and bulk trash removal.
  • Start slow, take breaks and schedule the tasks on different days to make it easier and more manageable. Enlist family and friends’ help.
  • Make sure you keep a record of what you donating so you can write it off on your taxes. Get a receipt and follow the IRS deduction guidelines.
  • Have bins or piles – Trash, Donate, Recycle, Giveaway and Keep.
  • Start with an impersonal space like a bathroom or cleaning closet where you aren’t emotionally invested in the items. You are able to move faster and declutter easily. Then, work your way into the harder areas like your own clothes closet.
  • When cleaning out your closet, remember the sage advice – in order to make room for the new, we must release the old.
  • No excuses. You can achieve a clearer, more stable mind starting today. Get started today. Get up and go clean out just one drawer and you’ll feel better. You’ll be motivated to continue. Keep this cycle going until all of your tasks have been completed.
  • Don’t worry about how long it will take you. It may take days, weeks or even months. Just make continual progress.
