Lifestyles are becoming increasingly more hectic. Clutter, our common enemy, is a byproduct of a hectic lifestyle. Studies indicate a direct correlation between stress levels and clutter. The more clutter piles up, the more stress levels rise. According to an online survey conducted by Riedel Marketing Group on behalf of the Huffington Post, 84% of Americans worry that their home isn’t clean or organized enough. Fifty-five percent of the over 1,000 individuals polled identified household disorder as a recent source of stress in their lives. In fact, concern over the state of one’s home ranked fifth overall as the most common source for triggering stress. Clearly clutter is a problem.
Clutter is also a part of life these days whether we like it or not. No matter what our circumstances, we all seem to have more stuff than we can easily manage. Most of us also have more to do than we have time in which to do it. The result is that clutter starts to take over as more and more things get set aside to be dealt with later. If this sounds familiar, you’re not alone.
The fact is, lifestyles have changed since we were kids. The problem is people haven’t changed. We live in a face-paced world where everyone is expected to juggle multiple things at once. Yet we still have a finite number of hours each day and an exhaustible amount of resources at our disposal. Among those resources are our own physical and emotional energy levels which are often depleted by the end of the day. Simply put, we expect more from ourselves than we are realistically able to achieve. That’s why things pile up and we often feel overwhelmed.
