Benefits of Downsizing and Decluttering You May Experience
Mother Teresa said: “The more you have, the more you are occupied. The less you have, the more free you are.”
Enjoy More Time in Your Day
If you live in a cluttered environment, it takes longer to complete simple tasks. In fact, the average person wastes almost an hour (50 minutes, to be exact) looking for stuff. Imagine what you could do with an extra hour a day—or 30 hours per month.
Unwanted clutter in your living space can create unnecessary anxiety. Just walking through in a visual reminder of what is undone.
Get Organized so the Clutter Doesn’t Return
Tidying up isn’t the same thing as organizing. When you tidy up, you find places to stash the clutter so the surface areas look good. When you’re organized, everything has a place. So there’s no need to hide anything away because you’ll put things back where they belong.
Make It Easier to Clean
When your surface areas are clear, cleaning isn’t such a chore. In fact, it’s a task that can take minutes instead of hours—just because you’re better organized.
Albert Einstein said: “Out of Clutter, find simplicity.”
