Less Clutter, Less Stress

Ahh, spring cleaning. Ok, so I’m a little behind. I don’t like the process (who does?), but as each room becomes clear, a sense of calm sweeps over me.

Clutter is stressful. We are in a world of excess. Everywhere I turn in my house I can find something to be thrown away. I am somewhat of a minimalist. I prefer function to form. If I don’t use it or love it, I get rid of it.

With a family, however, it’s not all up to me. I’m learning to live with more stuff around. We’ve just finished cleaning half the rooms in the house this weekend and I’ve noticed I have been much more relaxed. Things that normally irk me are much less bothersome.

There is a lot to be said for an uncluttered living space.
