We are a society drowning in physical belongings and clutter in our homes. In fact, the U.S. Department of Energy reported that a quarter of people with two-car garages have so much stuff that they aren't able to even park in their garages. We spend insane amounts of time throughout our lifetimes looking for lost items. We end up wasting money on late fees because of misplaced bills, and on renting storage facilities to relieve at least some of the pressure on our homes.
The worst, though, is the toll that excess stuff and disorganization take on us emotionally. We already tend to not use all of our vacation time, and then we stress ourselves out even more with our chaotic homes! Unfortunately, home organization is a pretty universal stress trigger. In fact, a recent survey revealed that worrying about whether one's house is clean and organized enough was in the top five stress triggers.
The good news is that it doesn't have to be this way.
Of course, there are always going to be things that you need to maintain in your home on a regular basis. But there is a better way to approach these things and to change your relationship with your stuff.
Amazing things happen when you make space to get clear on your goals and dreams. It all starts when you begin clearing out what no longer serves you. Are you ready?
