    I am in the process of a major "decluttering" process. Papers are the bane of my existence. Not only does clutter lead to increased stress, they say that it can actually interfere with weight loss. I think clutter is a metaphor for the excess baggage we carry around in life, both mental and physical. emoticon emoticon So I say dump it or recycle it by giving to a charity etc...

    I've been overcome and overwhelmed by the clutter in my 1-bedroom condo. Beyond stress, the depression and hopelessness it brings with it is the worst of all for me. I AM making progress, though. I started putting the excess into storage a year ago. Now to finish, I've hired a friend from church who's a personal trainer to help me with the clutter and then my weight loss efforts. She's a Godsend! Progress at last. emoticon

    When I have less "things", I have less things to worry about. After I did some major downsizing when I moved, I was amazed at what I could do without.

    Ugh!! this is so true in my life. I look around my home and I cannot believe what I have just laying around. It's time to de-clutter the crap and letting go.
