MakeSpace, For Your Health! Expand options

Well, it’s taken an incredibly long time, but it looks like winter is finally, truly, wonderfully, superbly gone from New York City. May is pretty late to be thinking about spring cleaning, but what are you gonna do?

If you suffer from allergies, cleaning up your apartment is an easy way to get some quick relief. Break out a duster, scrub all the pollen off your windows, and vacuum regularly to reduce the circulation of allergens in your apartment. If you have a lot of knick-knacks, consider storing them during allergy season to avoid accumulating more dust.

Did you know that decluttering is also one of the best things you can do for your mental health?

Professional organizer Brooke Stone, who was once brought in on an episode of Hoarders to help sort through a lifetime’s worth of stuff, was kind enough to email us some of her insights about the relationship between an organized living space and mental stability.

“When you are feeling stress from your personal or professional life due to work overload, an overabundance of deadlines, or a combination of those and other factors, your work suffers as your attention splits between everything you are juggling,” she writes.

“In much the same way the clutter around you splinters your focus each time you look around. This can cause a mental logjam that triggers the same feeling of stress that being overwhelmed by work does. Living in a neat, clean space keeps this feeling at bay, and makes it possible for you to more easily cope with the other stressors in your life.”

There you have it; if you keep your living space clean and organized, you’ll be a more mentally stable person and more productive, so get cleaning!

Deciding what to keep and what to throw away can be really hard though. If you have more stuff than you can afford to hold on to, try MakeSpace. We’ll bring sturdy bins to your door, which you can fill with the possessions that you can’t stand to part with. Then we’ll schlep everything away and create a photographic inventory of your stuff so that when you want something back, it’s just a few clicks away.

Now get cleaning, ya dingus!
