Clutter can cause physical hazards. It can be a tripping hazard. It can impede your life and make it hard to get out the door in the morning. The clutter can gather dust, dander, and pollen and cause asthma and allergies.
Clutter can also cause you to become depressed, especially if you are letting memory clutter keep you living in the past. It can even cause you to gain weight. A correlation between weight and the amount of clutter a person hangs on to has been discovered. Many people, once they decide to let go of their things, also end up letting go of their extra weight.
How to get rid of the clutter
Step 2: Create a vision of what you want. Ask yourself, “What do I want out of this space?” Don’t think about what you may need in the future. For example, if you want a calming bedroom environment, you may need to get rid of the TV or computer that is in it.
Step 3: Make decision quickly and right away. For example, don’t let mail pile up. Open it as soon as you get in the house and deal with it in a timely manner.
Once things are cleared out, set a reminder on your calendar to remind you to do clutter control maintenance. Clearing up clutter often allows people to have the energy to tackle other health or emotional issues.
