Research suggests that most people understand the correlation between decluttering and an improved mental state. Studies have proven that organizing will help you feel better. Yet in a recent poll by Huffington Post, 47% of Americans worry about the organization of their home. In another study 1 out of 4 people say they feel disorganized at work. So why do we stress over something we know will reduce stress?
I believe the difficulty doesn’t come from Continue reading
In light of the latest impending weather systems I thought I would repost my Emergency Preparedness Kit, which I posted on Feb 12, 2013. For this particular storm I am also including blankets and hot chocolate. Stay warm!
