A Storage Place strives to make relocation as painless as possible. There are, however, a number of things you may do on your own to minimize stress and avoid a more significant stress response.

Make a plan and start small.

Many of us are unsure where to begin because there are so many aspects of life that require organizing. It’s easy to become overwhelmed by the prospect of arranging every part of your life, so start simple. You’d be shocked how quickly one activity may snowball into another, and before you realize it, you’ll be organizing far more than you anticipated. Start with clearing out one of your closets and work your way through the rest of your house.

Items can be donated.

It’s time to put items you don’t want aside once you’ve decided where you want to start your journey to becoming more organized. Donate items that are no longer needed to your favorite charitable organization and feel good about it!

For other stuff, consider self-storage.

A storage unit near you can help you keep track of what you want to keep and what you want to donate while you organize your belongings. You may also want to keep items in storage that you don’t use all year, such as seasonal decorations. This can assist you in decluttering aspects of your home and maintaining a clutter-free environment!

Do a thorough cleaning.

Another excellent technique to relieve stress is to clean. Consider doing a deep clean of spots you don’t regularly clean once you’ve gotten more organized (such as baseboards, ceiling fans, light fixtures, etc.) Cleaning has been shown to decrease tension, so grab a sponge and start scrubbing the next time you’re feeling anxious or overwhelmed! For a short while, this can help you clear your mind. Make a playlist of your favorite tunes to help you stay motivated.

To stay organized, create patterns.

Create an organization/cleaning schedule once you’ve completed these things. Take it a step further and keep yourself accountable with a weekly or monthly dry erase calendar. You’ll not only enjoy yourself while performing these duties, but you’ll also benefit from them long after they’re accomplished!
