Whether you want to call it decluttering or "tidying up," we see you, Marie Kondo, removing old and unnecessary items is a smart move. And yes, there's a distinction between decluttering and cleaning. For example, the former is an action to make your items, location, etc., clean from dirt, stains, and germs. The latter is the act of sorting through things and removing or moving them to make better use of your space. So if stacks or piles of items currently enclose you (help, I'm trapped by my stuff!), or have a hard time finding things among the clutter, then this list is for you. Let's explore four benefits of decluttering. Oh, and we should mention that a self-storage unit is an excellent option for decluttering. That's right; you don't have to throw things away!
If you plan on decluttering your home or office soon, please call U-Lock-It Self Storage Belleville for a safe and accessible place to keep your items.
Declutter to Feel Good About Yourself
While some people enjoy the clutter and chaos of a messy office or home, others equate it to loss of control. We know that life can get hectic and stressful, and staying organized sometimes takes a back seat to you paying the bills, raising your kids, or getting your business started. But when you do get a chance to look up, seeing a mess only makes matters worse. Time to declutter! Dedicating time to decluttering your space will make you feel like you're in control again, which may boost your self-esteem.
Further, decluttering is therapeutic to some people and makes for productive use of a day off. So put on some tunes, make a plan, and declutter! You'll feel good that you did.
Declutter for Better Focus
You have a big work project on the horizon, which wouldn't be so bad if it didn't time-up with a friend's wedding, the start of summer, and a relative's graduation party. Don't panic. Begin a busy time in your life with decluttering to help you stay focused. You won't have time to waste looking for something or clearing off your desk once you get busy, so better to prepare for it now. Moreover, as we alluded to in the previous section, the last thing you want to come home to when you're hectic at work is a cluttered and disorganized house. Get rid of the jumble and stay focused!
Declutter for a Healthier Lifestyle
For some, their house is a reflection of how they live. For instance, a messy and cluttered kitchen might lead to more takeout, frozen dinners, or too much snacking. On the other hand, if your kitchen is clean and organized, you'll be more likely to cook a healthy meal since finding the proper utensils and ingredients won't hassle you. And what about the bedroom? While some people sleep like a baby no matter what the conditions are, others might find it harder to sleep in a cluttered and messy bedroom.
Do yourself a favor and declutter for your health. Not only will your self-esteem get a boost, but you might eat and sleep better too.
Declutter for Your Friends and Family
For many, a cluttered home might be the reason why they never host functions. Whether you're too embarrassed for people to see the clutter or don't have the room to host guests, taking the time to declutter could be the answer. Similar to how decluttering can boost your self-esteem and health, it can also improve your social life. Having a place you're proud of to share with family and friends will encourage you to invite people over more often. Further, your guests will appreciate you taking the time to organize so they are comfortable.
As you see, there are many reasons to declutter your home or office. And don't stress, you can still keep your items safe and accessible in a Ypsilanti self-storage unit. So if you plan on decluttering, don't hesitate to call U-Lock-It Self Storage!
