Negative Impacts On Lifestyle Due To Clutter

Are you one of those people who are constantly giving themselves a deadline to clean up the house and get rid of extra and unnecessary junk piling up in the basement or the attic? Most of you may successfully achieve the goal by the deadline; however, a big percentage of such people are unable to find the right time and opportunity to declutter their house or workstation.

How Do People End Up in Clutter?

There can be many reasons for living a cluttered lifestyle, such as laziness, addiction to binge shopping, or clutter syndrome, which is basically hoarding up stuff and piling it up in your house for “later use.”

So how does the clutter end up having negative impacts on people’s lifestyles, and what can we do to sort out this mess? Let’s find out below.

The Negative Impacts of Clutter

A Hard Blow To The Mental Health

Some clinical researchers who have studied the relationship of clutter with the mind have concluded that clutter can increase the Cortisol hormone in the body. It induces stress and can wind up people in bad shape mentally. The sweet abode on earth for a person is their home, and if it is filled with items that make it look messy, the stress levels will increase, and this will start to take a toll on their work-life and cause hindrance in daily activities. Not to mention it will initiate mood swings when issues like finding clean clothes and stuff will take a lot of energy and time, which could have been utilized more productively.

Increases Procrastination

Another negative impact of clutter is increased procrastination; even though the cluttered lifestyle is an outcome of procrastination and laziness, it can also give it a boost. “I will sort out the mess tomorrow” is a pact made by many procrastinators, but no one knows when that tomorrow will come. When procrastination becomes a habit, people tend to delay crucial events and tasks and soon get stressed with doing the job at the last minute.

Affected Relationships

The worst way in which having a cluttered lifestyle can hurt someone is the intentional distance their close ones start to maintain. There is a high potential that people with clutter syndrome end up living alone with their clutter because no one wants to live with a hoarder unless they are one themselves. However, this is no way of living a healthy life, so one must learn to stop hoarding and start cleaning to get a high-quality lifestyle and maintain social relationships.

The Best Way To Declutter
