Clutter Impacts Your Happiness: Organize Your Space Today! By Guest Blogger Matt Adams Your Garage Guys

Your environment impacts your happiness. Consider how a messy, dirty and cluttered environment can impact your health. I have one word: negative. There are a lot of people in the world who are searching for happiness and meaning. Most of them don't realize that the answer isn't always found in some distant land. If you want to change your life, start with your own, personal environment. Start with something you can control. Something you can change. Transform your life by transforming your environment!

Great! You now have all you need. A strong desire for change! Unfortunately, desire for change is not usually followed by an action. Our intentions are often good, our actions, well, they’re lacking to say the least! We should focus less on what we want to achieve and more on actually getting something done.

Here are a few examples of some things you can do right now, today. I'm serious, go take a break, and do at least one of these tasks. It’s time for a change!

       Clean your room: I guarantee, you have clothes on the floor, an empty of glass on the bedside table, and an unmade bed.
       Clean and organize your desk: There’s a good chance you haven’t looked through your paperwork recently. Toss out anything unnecessary and take the time to organize important documents.
       Organize your fridge and pantry: Give your fridge a good clean, throw away old food, and reorganize the fridge. Spend time doing the same in the pantry. Find some old boxes that you can use to sort into categories, such as spices, cans, or cereal.
“Success is most often the result of consistent execution of a single habit”.

Transforming your life is not a onetime event. It's a process. Cleaning your room once won't change your life. Keeping it clean will. Commit yourself to a schedule and stick to it.

Your environment impacts your health. Looking for a change in your life? Why not start with your own home, your own bedroom even. Yet, a clean room for a day won't provide long lasting results. Make it a habit to live in a good, healthy, clutter free environment.

Case Study Organizing a Client

I help hundreds of clients with hundreds of different situations.  Some come with just one space needing help, others need every space.  My case study is a busy professional with one special needs child and one already in college and a divorce has been going on for a couple years.  Now she would like to make the house her own as many of my recent divorced clients do.  
We start in her office where she has work and home files, books and supplies.  As we begin the process we discover items not belonging in the office, duplicate files, and the home and work items mixed.  She has tried 2 locations in her home for her office so she has items in both of those locations.  She makes the decision and chooses the one location she likes the best.  We divide home and work so there is a filing cabinet for each.  She decides to buy a bookcase unit to make storage of supplies, crafts, and school items for her daughter easier and more attractive.  
First we start on the files so only those needed are kept.  We eliminate some, combine some and decide on files to be kept but will be stored elsewhere.  Once the files have been completed, we start on the desk to make it clearer where items go and what needs to be done.  
The new book case unit allows us to store extra office supplies, craft items and items needed close at hand but are too big for the desk.  We develop a system for her bills and to do items so she can find them and get them completed.  
We continue with her kitchen area that collects mail, paper and some of her daughter's school items.  Now that we have a place for papers in her new office area, we make some decisions on the kitchen papers.  We then made our way to the area that was the old office and crafts to define it and arrange it better.  Some items we eliminate and others we box up for her former husband.  
As of now, we have completed her basement storage, lower level living area, and her daughter's room  Success is possible fro anyone when you complete 1 space at a time.
