When stuff happens

When stuff happens

Messy spaces leave us feeling anxious, helpless, and overwhelmed, says Dr. Sherrie Bourg Carter. But to tackle that mess, you may need a little help.


By Kathy Penner

Is the sheer volume of things you’ve accumulated over time causing you more stress than comfort? You’re not alone. As Dr. Sherrie Bourg Carter says in Psychology Today, “Messy spaces leave us feeling anxious, helpless, and overwhelmed.” You may want to de-clutter. But what if sorting through your pile of stuff seems as impossible as climbing Mount Everest?

Good news: help is available. Many books and websites offer step-by-step guides to decluttering, including basic pointers such as finishing one area before moving on to another, and throwing away things you don’t use or need.
Don’t try climbing that mountain of mess all at once. Start now, work at it over time, and consider seeking help from family, friends, or a professional home organizing service. You’ll love the clear view from the top!
