First, a cluttered or messy home simply makes it harder to find what you need, and more likely to misplace your cellphone or keys — causing stress and wasting time. Studies have also found that simply being exposed to a chaotic or disorganized environment makes you more likely to overeat unhealthy foods, which can result in weight gain. Other research has found that if you find your home environment stressful, you’re more likely to feel depressed and to have higher levels of cortisol, a stress hormone that is linked to a higher risk of poor health.
That’s the unfortunate news. The good is that making even some small changes to declutter your home will make it more organized and more peaceful, decreasing stress and improving your health. The accompanying infographic, The Organization Diet: Cut the Clutter & Improve Your Life, presents proven, practical tips will help you streamline your home. Give the “organization diet” a try. Chances are you’ll shed not only unnecessary clutter but stress and few extra pounds as well, setting the stage for better overall mental and physical health.
