Clutter may rob us of the life we imagined or prevent us from creating a new vision for our future.

Clutter has been an issue for as long as humanity has created possessions. And for almost as long, we’ve been decluttering. More recently, however, we’ve discovered the link between clutter and mental health.
Whether you want to declutter to create simplicity in your home or just to build a more presentable atmosphere, you’ll find that one of the benefits of decluttering is improved health. Here are some of decluttering tips related to improved health.
You may already know that clutter creates extra surfaces for dust to collect. If you have any kind of respiratory issues, that can spell trouble for you. Even worse, certain critters are attracted to boxes filled with debris. Getting the clutter out of your home helps to improve the air quality by reducing the possibility of toxins and dust, and that helps you to breathe easier.
Is there anything that you find you’re not using because you can’t quickly get to it? Maybe your vegetable chopper is pushed behind a mountain of other items, so you’ve opted for frozen meals instead of fresh ones. Or maybe you haven’t brought out your yoga mat in months because various other things were piled in front of it, and you don’t feel like digging through the mess to find it.
When you start decluttering these areas, it becomes easier to move around in and find the things you need. And when you can find those things, it’s easier to make healthier choices. You may also find yourself sleeping better, too.
When your space is free of clutter, it can start to feel restful and relaxing once again. Clutter tends to create excess distractions and over stimulate our senses. This tells our brain that there’s still work to be done and creates a sense of guilt. If you spend just 15 minutes a day sorting through each room and getting rid of what you don’t need, you’ll begin to feel more at peace.
Decluttering successfully provides a sense of accomplishment and can improve your self-esteem. It also makes it easier to concentrate on tasks. All that sensory stimulation draws our mind away from what we need to focus on and creates a distraction.
Just because some of the items in your home qualify as clutter doesn’t mean they don’t have value. Whether you want to keep your belongings tucked away for a while or you just want to wait for yard sale season, storing your items with Store Here is the perfect solution.
