Here’s what we’ve been talking about the last few weeks:
Today, I want to highlight:
If you recall from the Bagua:
And, (if you’re the hard facts/data-type person) researchers at UCLA’s Center on Everyday Lives and Families (CELF) discovered the same thing when they explored the relationship between 32 California families and the objects in their homes. The resulting book, “Life at Home in The Twenty-First Century,” is a look at how Americans use the space in their homes and interact with the things they accumulate.
The stress created by chaotic/stagnant spaces is very real--the resulting elevated cortisol levels in turn decrease our ability to sleep well, and digest our food properly.
And, if that isn’t enough, The American Institute of Stress (Wait, we have an institute for American Stress, REALLY?????) reports that stress is responsible for between 75-90% of ALL diseases.
So, YES(!) you can make a HUGE impact on your health by chipping away at the clutter and reducing your stress--it’s TOTALLY possible!
Clutter Clearing can be done all at once or in stages: box by box, shelf by shelf, room by room, but it IS possible to clear the energy in your home and improve your STRESS and your HEALTH by letting go.
