No junk, no stress. How decluttering your home and yard can improve your mental health

No junk, no stress. How decluttering your home and yard can improve your mental health

Do you feel stressed when you look at that messy basement or cluttered garage? It’s not your imagination. Numerous studies have shown that an abundance of clutter really does impact us negatively emotionally. But the good news is that no junk can also mean no stress.

Why junk is stressful

Our physical surroundings have a greater impact on us mentally and emotionally than most of us realize. Here are a few of the effects that an office full of scattered papers or a yard full of construction debris can have:

  • Sensory overload causes our brains to process stimuli that aren’t really important.
  • Junk distracts us from what we should be focussing on. While we should be enjoying our homes, and families or getting some work done, that stack of papers in the home office, or pile of outgrown toys in the basement competes for our attention.
  • Clutter keeps us from truly relaxing and enjoying our surroundings. Imagine how much nicer it would be to sit down on your deck and enjoy a beverage if you didn’t have all that scrap in the backyard.
  • It sends a signal to our brain that our work is not complete (and maybe never will be).
  • It can be the source of embarrassment and we may avoid having others visit our homes. You may even feel guilty that you are not taking better care of your home.
  • It can frustrate us because it is easier to lose important items like keys, glasses, documents etc. in a cluttered home. This of course slows your productivity which can also cause feelings of guilt and diminished confidence.

If any of this sounds familiar, you probably wish you could simply get rid of all that junk once and for all. But even the thought of sorting through it all and cleaning it out can be stressful!

How a junk removal service can help

Any company that helps you get rid of unwanted clutter can provide much needed relief. But that being said, not all companies are created equal. Some of them will make you pack everything up in boxes first. Some will drop off a container at your home and have you do all the heavy lifting.

Simply point to the clutter that you’d like removed and we’ll do the rest. We even ensure that anything that can be recycled or donated is. That way you don’t have to get stressed about the environment either.  And our extra-large trucks mean less trips for us and a greater savings for you.
