Decluttering provided by Wendy

Decluttering is one of the most important things you can do to improve your life and work. A cluttered environment reflects our stress levels – if everything around us feels overwhelming and stressful, then chances are we're feeling just as overwhelmed inside. When everything is in its rightful place and has a designated use, it becomes much less cluttered. This allows us to focus on what truly matters instead of being preoccupied with unnecessary distractions.

What is Decluttering?

Decluttering is the process whereby you decide whether the items in your space are cluttered and, if so, determine where they belong and acts on that decision. By enabling you to understand why you have clutter in the first place, the process will help you make a permanent change. In addition, by organizing your environment, you'll focus better and get more done in a shorter time.

Why is Decluttering important?

Clutter affects our emotional and physical well-being in several ways. For example, clutter in the office can make us feel unproductive and burnt out. The benefits of decluttering the physical space are unsurprising, given that exposure to cluttered, disorganized surroundings can compromise your attention, concentration, and focus. According to prior research on the results from functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) scans, disorder even depletes your cognitive resources. 

Of course, the office isn't the only place you'll find clutter. Clutter in the home can affect your life as well. For example, survey responses from a paper published in the Journal of Environmental Psychology in June 2016 (Ferrari and Roster) showed that clutter harms the subjective well-being and happiness of most adults in the United States and Canada. 

Clutter can also be a safety hazard. Items or wires on the floor can cause someone to stumble. A health hazard exists if piles of stuff have become magnets for pests. In addition, clutter can act as a source of friction between people with different ideas regarding tidiness.

The benefits of Decluttering

Untidy environments elevate stress for most people. For example, in one study, people who described their homes with positive language had a lower cortisol level than those who described their homes as cluttered or unfinished. 

For most people, decluttering can promote productivity and improve mental and physical health. Benefits of decluttering include:

Better focus: Clutter makes it tough to find what you need. It may also distract you. Removing visual clutter can help you focus better on any task. 

Higher self-esteem: When staying organized is troublesome, you may feel out of control. Enhancing your living space can restore feelings of competency and pride.

Better relationships: Conflicts with family or roommates often occur when someone can't handle clutter. Also, you may be more comfortable inviting friends into your home when it's tidy.

Reduced risk of health issues: You may think your house is disorganized but not dirty. But it's difficult to clean around heaps of belongings. Decluttering can deter pests and reduce dust, mold, and mildew, which may trigger asthma and allergies. 

Improved lifestyle and well-being: It's easier to prepare healthy meals in a tidied kitchen. And most people sleep better in a neat room with a neat bed.
