One of the major reasons professional organizers get hired is to alleviate stress caused by a lack of organization in the home or office. Clutter in the home can harbor feelings of guilt and frustration, and can also be a huge barrier to productivity and efficiency in the work place.
One in four full-time moms with children under the age of 13 experiences stress everyday (Roper Starch Worldwide). Additionally, according to the American Psychological Association, 77% of people experience physical stress-related symptoms (headaches, stomach aches, etc.), while 73% suffer feelings of irritability, nervousness and anger. That’s a lot of people potentially missing out on family time, or taking sick days due to preventable, stress-related illnesses. Tackling clutter is a great way to alleviate some of those stress-triggers, and get back on track to a healthier, more productive life. Here are some examples of where to begin:
At Can the Clutter, we help you logically arrange “the things” you see and use; the stress relief is immediate! For example, in the home, we tackle problem areas like kitchens, basements, playrooms and garages to give you back control of your home.
Office organizing, on the other hand, combines space management and work flow optimization. Space management is about making sure you are using your space in the smartest way, while work flow optimization is about ensuring you have systems in place to help you be as productive as possible. These might include implementing new filing systems or systems for tracking projects and “to do” items. We help businesses work smarter to reduce overhead costs and free up resources to work on more strategic/revenue-generating activities. Upon working through these organizational obstacles, our clients have claimed not only to be 40% more efficient, but also 40% overall less stressed in the office!
Professional organizing services can benefit everyone. Our array of clients includes CEOs, CIOs, CFOs, stockbrokers, college deans, psychologists, artists, retail professionals, small business owners, families, parents and individuals. Getting organized is not a “one-size-fits-all” process. What may be considered clutter to one individual or company could be completely organized and efficient to another. Our goal is to find a system that works for you or your business, one that you can maintain, and most importantly one that reduces stress, gives you more time, renewed motivation, and a greater sense of contentment, peace and success in your daily life and business endeavors.
