Reason #8: Because clutter creates anxiety…

Filed under: cleaning, housekeeping, progress, reason — Easy @ 12:03 pm

I might have that backwards. It might be that a lack of clutter creates calm, but I’m definitely less stressed out when my house is clean than when it’s messy.

With my 15 minutes a day, I’ve been gradually increasing the state of cleanliness of my house, starting in the kitchen and working this way. I’ve decluttered most things at this point. Just my desk is left. Which is kinda dumb, really, because I look at my desk all day, and not my kitchen, but when I turn around now, and see the non-clutter behind me, I breathe an audible sigh of relief.

All that said, I’m going away for the weekend, so no 15 minuteses for a few days.

  1. Disorganization often leads to trouble finding things, which leads to stress, and stepping over things instead of putting them away also helps with that. I’ve always had problems with clutter, but managed to mostly contain it in this place (though my shelves are all scattered wreckage)… and at the office, I’ve been feeling more and more stressed the last few weeks as things backed up on me. Friday, I went through and plowed through everything, and felt a lot better simply because I had desk space. (Now to work through my e-mails…)
