I am a working woman with two children. I and my husband have an eight hours day time jobs. So, taking care of children and home demands a lot. Although we try to keep our home as hygienic as possible but from past one year, stuff in our house is getting added like crazy.
We even shifted to a bigger house with better storage but it didn’t help much. Even after spending weekends on decluttering, by the end of the week, I was back to square one with clutter and mess around me. This was taking a toll on my personal and family life as well. I was desperately looking for some help.
Suddenly, while surfing solutions for this online, I got to know about the book: Goodbye Clutter by Maria Gracia. Here’s my review of the book.
Why we need strict action for Clutter?
Clutter is not supposed to be taken a casual term for a mess. If you realize carefully and I quote the author here: “Clutter” is such a small word but it is an arduous journey and colossal challenge, multiplying exponentially in our environments, our space, our home and spilled over into every aspect of our lives”. It becomes worse by time as clutter starts growing automatically. In other words. Clutter attracts and breeds more clutter.
As I realized from the book, that clutter has negative effects on us more than we realize:
- When you are surrounded by mess and clutter, the stress hormone known as cortisol, rises in your bloodstream. As we know, stress is a huge concern in our lives today. Your home should be the zen area place, not the one which gives you stress.
- We won’t realize it early but in a cluttered place, you waste so much of time and effort trying to find misplaced things. This energy could be used in some productive work.
- Unhygienic living intensifies disturbed emotions. It can cause fatigue, frustration, and depression.
- You may feel embarrassed or shy when your friends and family point out the disorderliness and they won’t feel like visiting you any longer. Making others feel uncomfortable instead of welcoming is a big issue.
- If we don’t start cleaning or organizing, clutter will keep on adding. It is not a problem that heals itself with time.
- Clutter can cause serious health consequences. The disorganized surroundings can lead an unhealthy state of mind which can aggravate to serious illness.
- This habit of disorganization can be cultivated in your family which is definitely not a good trait to pass on.
What is the solution?
In today’s fast-paced life, we don’t have time to experiment. Only a proven-effective clutter removing system can get rid of this problem. And will help us to remove dishevelment and give us a clean life we deserve. We cannot let this problem to rob our peace, time and energy.
