Busy Mom’s Survival Guide Podcast Episode 008.
Today’s podcast is the final episode in my series on clutter. I hope that over the past two episodes you have gotten a sense for how drastic a problem clutter is in America. So much so, that there have been a lot of studies done on the impacts of clutter on people’s lives.
Studies have shown that people with clutter problems tend to use the following words to describe themselves:
- I can’t breathe
If you can relate to any of these words and feelings, please address the fact that it may be the physical clutter in your home that is causing these emotions.
In fact, observations have shown that as people “clean up”, their energy seems to rise. Often times, the clean up and reduction of clutter motivates people to tend to other issues in their lives such as being stuck in an unsatisfactory occupation, losing weight, or living in an unhealthy relationship.
Various studies have also shown that the average American only uses somewhere between 20% and 30% of the stuff in their home. So you should have a lot of room to get rid of stuff that you really don’t need.
During today’s podcast episode, I’ll be answering listener questions about how to deal with the clutter in their lives. It’s a long episode as there were a lot of detailed questions.
I hope you enjoy this concluding episode to the clutter series and that you are motivated to make a real change in your life to a simpler lifestyle. You and your family will be benefited by the change.
Please leave me a comment and let me know if this series has changed the way you approach the clutter in your home.
