CLUTTER AFFECTS YOUR MIND AND BODY

Tracie's company has been working with me downsizing and organizing the "stuff" I brought to my new location.
Here is one of her blogs from her web site! http://www.midstofthestorm.com/blog-1
Understanding How Clutter Affects Your Mind & Body
September 16, 2016

Do you struggle with clutter? Millions of Americans do. What you, and they, may not realize is that clutter can affect your mind and body. The following information may be helpful in encouraging you to rid your life of clutter for the last time.

How does your home make you feel when you walk in the door at the end of the day? Do you feel peaceful and glad to be at home because it is your sanctuary? Alternatively, do you feel dread because there is a mountain of unfolded laundry in the chair, a stack of magazines spread all over the floor and a sink full of this morning’s dishes? Scientific reports claim the state of your house reflects the state of your mind. Disorganization and clutter indicate there is something out of balance. The trick is learning what is off-kilter and how to set it straight.

Living in a cluttered home is stressful – for everyone. Mom is constantly pulled from what she needs to do to help someone find his or her homework. Dad is late for work because he cannot find his car keys. As the pressure to find those things that are lost mounts, so does the tension. Before too long, something or someone snaps. 

Think about how you feel when you have misplaced something. You may berate yourself for being careless. You may feel frustrated and ready to give up. When your child comes in to ask a question, you may not respond in a loving manner and feelings are hurt. Decluttering and organizing your home can help alleviate this problem.

Clutter drains you of energy and makes you feel tired. When you have to look at clutter, you most likely feel overwhelmed. You know you need to do something but you do not have the energy. Take time to clear the clutter from one small area. It can help you and your family feel more energetic and more inspired to work on decluttering in other areas.

Did you know clutter could be making you sick physically? No one wants to think about it, but clutter can be the breeding ground for germs, dust, mold and mildew. It could even hide a problem with mice. If you do not believe clutter can make you sick, think of the stress mentioned above. If you have too much stress, you may develop high blood pressure. Dust and mold can cause allergies or worse. 

Clutter can also affect your body weight. People with clutter are usually sedentary while those with an uncluttered home are active. Part of this may be because the clutter in the home makes it hard for you to move. You may also be using clutter, like being overweight, as a means to protect yourself. Clutter keeps people at bay and so there is little chance that you will be hurt.

Now that you understand some of the ways clutter can affect your mind and body, consider what you are going to do about it. Will you take a step forward and begin decluttering, or will you let it continue to rule your life and that of your family?

A BALTIMORE MOTHER 3 SINGLE BIRTHS IN 22 MONTHS

I found this article today in Doris Rose's memory collection. It looks like it was on one of the main pages of one of the Baltimore newpapers. Baltimore people were/are notorious for saving articles/obituaries that fascinated/interested them in precomputer years.
Wonder if Doris Rose who held this article in her memory collection for all these  years  knew the mother.
Wonder if she just found the topic interesting.
The kids were born in 49, 50, and 51. All born in 23 months and 10 days!
 
We think we know everything about our relatives we live with but when we become our  family archeologist we learn that is not the case!
We only know parts of each other and use clues to discover the rest!

IRVINGTON ... BALTIMORE ... BUS CRASH

My love and thoughts go out to the people affected by the terrible buses and car crash in Baltimore today. Right there...Irvington...Loudon Park Cemetery...Frederick Avenue...Monastery  is where I grew up...where I walked to my little church St. James,  the Irvington movies and Leidig drug store....where I waited for the no8 streetcar to take me downtown to my Western high school...where I went to put flowers on the graves of family members....
Watching and listening to the people there on tv today  I could feel their shock, grief and pain. I could understand their not understanding how it could happen there...or why....

That's the hardest part of life...
