Create a Natural Home Environment

Did you know? Studies show that organized people are less stressed, have increased productivity and efficiency, are less frustrated, and suffer less from depression.

Benefits of Less Clutter

Being organized helps one regain a sense of control which results in higher self-esteem and confidence. Organized people make conscious choices and decisions. They eliminate clutter and think positively, focusing on the task at hand. They also set up systems to handle routine tasks and know when to say no to more “stuff.”

How Clutter Affects Us

The body can become fraught with anxiety and uneasiness when presented with a room full of disorganized belongings or a counter top full of paperwork. Even if we attempt to overlook the clutter or ignore it by placing it in a room and closing the door, our subconscious still knows it exists.

Whether it’s piled up mail, waiting to be sorted, photos needing a home, a medicine cabinet that resembles a small pharmacy, or a garage that holds an accumulation of stuff—it’s all clutter, and that’s just the physical kind.

Today, an overabundance of mental clutter exists too. For example, an attempt to remember everything that needs to be done instead of writing it down. Add to that emotional clutter—unresolved issues with family members or close friends, or fears we continue to run from instead of facing—daily life can become almost unbearable.

Cutting the Clutter

Knowing where to start can be challenging and even frustrating. Decluttering and organizing is a process. It takes time to accumulate clutter, and it will definitely take time to eliminate the excess.

Begin by setting a goal. Decide to declutter and organize one room at a time, instead of the entire house.

Set up a staging area with large containers labeled Donate, Consign, Trash, Go Home (these are items that go elsewhere in the home), and Return (items that belong to other people or that need to be returned to a store). Use the labeled bins for items that don’t belong in the room. Add another bin labeled “Keep” for items that will remain in that space.

Formulate a plan and break it down into manageable steps. For instance, turn the “junk” room into an office and guest room. Next, determine the zones, or areas, for particular activities such as sleeping, reading, computing, and storage. Draw a rough schematic of the furniture layout before moving heavy items. Once the exact location has been determined, items from the “Keep” box can be placed into the relative zone.

Freedom from Clutter

An uncluttered environment is calming and peaceful, allowing the subconscious to be free to focus on what one wants to do – as opposed to what one should do. A clutter free space also results in ease of movement and clearer thinking. Essentially, when living in an uncluttered environment, one is focusing on the here and now, which can increase life’s enjoyment!
