Cluttering May Be Hazardous To Your Health
Some of us live in a mountain of stuff. We may not realize that somewhere in our brain we try and keep track of it all. Sometimes it is good to ask yourself -Why do I have so much stuff? Usually our possessions make us feel cared for because they help us do what we want to do. When we get to the point of clutter frustration can set in. We buy another item because we cannot find the one we have. We soon forget what we have and the clutter just gets out of hand. A lack of managing our stuff can even get to the point of hoarding.
The difference between a clutterer and hoarder is very important to know. In 2013 Compulsive Hoarding Syndrome was defined as a mental disorder in the 5th edition of the DSM (Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders). Seeking Professional advice is a good solution to this problem. On the other hand clutterers can seek help by hiring a declutter service to come in and start sorting, throwing out, giving to charity and finding that perfect home for every item in the home, office or garage. Once there is a place for every item keeping order is much easier. A commitment to spend time creating order in one’s space can be life altering.
The benefits are great. Enjoying your fine furniture by seeing the beauty of that wood table top because it has no piles on it. Getting dressed for the day is fun because you can find that outfit that makes you feel confident and smart. Having only items in your home that really like, makes you appreciate them more. Our possessions are supposed to add value to our lives and they can when they are in order. For one of the best declutter services in Long Beach call Jeanne…the organizational genie.
