How Self Storage Can Help Improve your Relationships at Home

Many households include two working adults. This can put strain on both parties to find the time and energy to clean, tidy, and keep on top of clutter.

In some arrangements, one person may be more sensitive to the feelings of overwhelm, defeat, and anxiety that clutter can invoke, whilst others seem unaffected.

This can cause disparity in how such shared jobs are approached, and to what extent they are completed.

One solution for dealing with excess possessions that you do not wish to part with is to rent a self store unit from Boyin’s Self Store. This can help you create a more organised and less cluttered living space, which may improve overall household dynamics. Living in an uncluttered environment can help improve relationships at home in several ways.

Bye Bye Stress, Hello Calm

Living with clutter can cause feelings of overwhelm and dissatisfaction, which can negatively impact a relationship.

In an article by The Huffington Post they report stress and anxiety due to cluttered spaces can affect the way we behave around our partner, reducing tolerance, understanding and patience.

This can result in passive aggressive comments and general snippiness. Decluttered living can reduce stress and increase feelings of calm, which can lead to improved communication and less conflict between members of your household.

Feelings of Shame

Some people feel a sense of embarrassment over their cluttered homes and are uncomfortable to invite friends and family to visit. This can have a big negative impact on quality of life.

Removing unnecessary items from your home can create more physical space for shared activities, such as entertaining guests.

This will generate a greater sense of well being, and an improved sense of control over your environment.

Holding Space

Keeping shared spaces tidy and organised demonstrates respect and consideration for others. Should the space you cleared begin to fill up again, make time to box up anything you haven’t used for over a year, and take it to your self storage unit.

By systematically removing excess possessions before they accumulate, you will reduce potential sources of conflict. Adopting a “one in, one out”.  policy can be useful.

An uncluttered home can foster a more positive living environment,
which can benefit all members of a household.
