Give your extra stuff a new home. There’s nothing worse than clutter to make a space feel messy. And, not only does clutter make things messy, clutter is stressful. According to Christiane Northrup, M.D., “Piles of stuff in our homes are one of the greatest stress triggers. Clutter literally increases your cortisol level! When we have a lot of clutter in our homes, it has the effect of distracting us and can even cause chronic restlessness. When you reduce the noise of the things around you, you can focus on creating your life.” Systematically go through your house and garage to identify things that you no longer use. Be sure to recycle or donate your unused clutter when possible so it doesn’t end up sitting in your local landfill.
