Get Organized in 2020 With Junk Removal in Springfield Missouri
It’s a New Year, so what better time to start being a new you? With 2020, it’s not just a new year, but a whole new decade and it provides extra motivation to improve your life. At Dog Gone Junk, we are constantly talking about decluttering and organization. We’re obviously a little biased, but it turns out that science actually backs it up. Here are five reasons that decluttering your home and life with junk removal in Springfield Missouri are positives for your everyday life.
Decluttering Helps Fight Depression
When cortisol levels are elevated, it can cause depression. If your mental state is important to you, you can take minor daily steps to get your life and home decluttered.
Decluttering Reduces Stress Levels
Cortisol levels are also linked to stress. Studies have shown a link between the stress hormone cortisol and clutter. When your home or office is messy, it adds a mental weight. Not only knowing that the mess is there presently, but that every day the mess will get worse. Stress building on top of stress is not good for your health.
Decluttering Makes It Easier To Focus
It’s pretty simple. An unorganized home leads to an unorganized mind. Cluttered living and working spaces place too many stimuli in your environment, making focusing on any one task at hand, nearly impossible.
Decluttering Actually Leads To Better Health
The book Lose the Clutter, Lose the Weight written by Peter Walsh, shows the connection between having a home full of unnecessary clutter and a kitchen full of unhealthy foods. More depression and anxiety lead to less than healthy food choices.
Decluttering Can Improve Your Air Quality
The more clutter you have, the more dust that can accumulate in the house. This can increase the amount of toxins and other contaminants floating through your air around you. This can also lead to allergies, coughing, sneezing, and other unwanted reactions. The less clutter you have, the less dust that is collected and the easier it is to breathe inside your home.
If the task of getting organized in 2020 seems too daunting, make a goal to spend 10 minutes a day decluttering. After no time at all, that 10 minutes will become a habit and you’ll be spending more time getting organized with no hassle at all.
