How clutter effects us:
Risk of injuries and falls
Excessive clutter in the home can lead to respiratory problems such as asthma attacks. Cluttered homes tend to have more dust and germs build up on objects and surfaces.
Rodents and pests thrive in messy environments which can lead to other health problems.
Cluttered homes are linked to obesity and weight gain.
Having a messy home can overload your brain with stimulants causing stress, depression and anxiety.
Extreme clutter/hoarding cases are linked to depression, emotional trauma and other mental illness.
Tips to help clean a cluttered home:
Focus on one room at a time. Trying to clean your whole house in one day can be overwhelming and exhausting, work on one room each day to break up the work load.
If you haven't used something in a year or two, discard it or donate it.
Organize a swap party or garage sale with friends and family to help get rid of things you no longer need/use.
Donate old books and magazines you have already read to local bookstores, clinics or hospitals.
Organize your belongings before buying more storage items and containers.
Letting go of things can be hard, ask yourself "when did I use this last?" and "do I really need this?" to help make quick decisions.
When sorting through sentimental items, only keeps those that make you happy and relate to your current life.
Decluttering and cleaning your home can be an emotional exhausting process, but parting with items that no longer serve a purpose to you can help improve your self-esteem, creativity and well-being.
