THIS WILL WORK FOR YOU TOO, FRIEND.
It doesn’t matter if you’re married or single, if you work or stay home, if you have one kid or twelve, your clutter is directly tied to your stress.
A study done by UCLA’s Center for Everyday Families backs up what I experienced in my motherhood and what I’m guessing you are too –
Clutter = stress and a deep lack of fulfillment
This study found that female homeowners with more clutter had significantly higher levels of cortisol (the stress hormone).
It also found that women tend to base their general happiness with their families on how they feel when they are at home.
And new scientific studies suggest that eliminating clutter would cut down on amount of housework by 40% – that’s a lot of burden off you, mama!
When you simplify your mess, you set yourself free to be a present, intentional mom who leads a purposeful life.
