Do you have a summer yard sale coming up? Have you realized over the winter months you managed to bring in too many items? Decluttering your home helps you get organized, but it also may help you shed a few pounds, lower your stress level and improve your overall mindset.
People end up wasting so much time when they cannot find their keys or wallet in a disorganized home. Having a spot for each item and having order in your household makes finding items easy. Being exposed to a chaotic or disordered environment makes you more likely to overeat unhealthy foods like sweets- this can result in weight gain. Other studies have found that a stressful home environment can make you more likely to feel depressed and leads to higher levels of cortisol- a stress hormone linked to higher risk of poor health.
The accompanying infographic, The Organization Diet: Cut the Clutter & Improve Your Life, offers proven, practical tips will help you organize your home. Give the “organization diet” a try. Chances are you’ll shed not only unnecessary clutter but stress and a couple pounds as well, setting the stage for better overall physical and mental health.
