Clutter is simply the accumulation of more possessions than can fit in the
available space. Clutter can induce a physiological response increasing cortisol levels (stress hormone) in our body. Clutter can also make it difficult to move, think, and process both mentally and visually. Removing the clutter from a space can help us to be more productive and feel less stressed.
Tips to help declutter:
~ Tidy by category, not location (i.e. all clothing, not just the bedroom
~ Start by discarding/donating- get rid of things first before you start to
o If you find this difficult, invite an objective person to help
Find a place for everything, and put everything in its place (prevents
clutter from building back up)
~ Store like items together
~ Purchase with intention- don't buy or keep things "just because"
