Over the past twenty years, I’ve personally helped hundreds of people remove or get control of the clutter in their lives. I’ve seen first-hand the negative effects that clutter produces in people’s lives. Here are just a few:
1. Can create more stress: This is the big one. When you are surrounded by clutter and the problems it creates, the stress hormone, cortisol, rises in your blood stream. Doctors will tell you that stress is a huge concern in our lives today.
2. Can’t find things: It’s the first thing my clutter clients tell me, “I waste too much time looking for things I know I have but can’t find.”
3. Can cause conflicts and arguments: I’ve seen it time and again– husbands and wives arguing about the clutter itself or the fact that they can’t find important papers, tools or possessions. Clutter stresses families out.
4. Can cause embarrassment: It doesn’t matter how bad the clutter problem is. If it embarrasses you, it’s a problem. Of course, if your family and friends don’t feel comfortable visiting any longer because of the amount of clutter, then it’s an even bigger problem.
5. Can contribute to weight gain: Clutter can lead to higher levels of stress and stress can lead to overeating. The more clutter, the more stress, the higher the probability of overeating. That equals more weight.
6. Can’t get things done: It goes hand in hand. When you have difficulty keeping clutter under control, you tend to have difficulty getting many other things done. The clutter itself becomes a distraction or it puts you in a negative mood. That’s not a good state of mind for getting things done.
7. Can’t control growing clutter: Without a solution, clutter tends to grow making it nearly impossible to keep it under control. That breeds frustration and more stress.
8. May spend less time with family and friends: Depending on how bad your clutter problem is and how embarrassed or emotionally affected by it you are, you may find yourself spending less quality time with family and friends.
9. Can increase dust mites or other unwanted critters: When you have cleared as much clutter from clients homes and offices as I have, you become very aware of the enormous amount of dust/dust mites, mold, germs and other unwelcome critters that can live in the clutter. The dust mites, etc. can cause allergies or other illnesses, and the bugs are creepy and unsanitary.
10. Can cause fatigue or depression: Continuous stress and frustration can often lead to feeling listless or even exhausted. If the emotional weight of your clutter becomes overbearing it could lead to something even more serious, like depression.
11. Can be passed on to your children: While your clutter itself may be passed on to your children when you’re no longer here, I’m talking about passing on the clutter habit to your children. If they grow up surrounded by clutter then there is a good chance that they too will suffer from the negative effects of clutter when they become adults.
12. Can lead to more serious health problems: Clutter could lead to allergies from dust mites, or something more serious from continuous stress, like headaches, high blood pressure, heart disease, stroke, even cancer. These are just some of the reasons why removing excess stress from our lives is so important.
