Organise your house and do away with stress

Expert psychologists have recently concluded that untidiness is one of the main factors that causes people stress. Although some people would argue that they are not untidy but that they simply don't have enough space, furniture storage and self-storage units mean that there are no longer easy excuses for untidy people.

Renting a storage unit is a relatively simple operation these days, as well as offering clients a wide range of options so you don't have to worry about anything more than your extra belongings at home. If you're thinking about the expense, it isn't as much as you might imagine. The solution adapts to anybody's pocket.

A tidy house is guaranteed to improve people's lives; our living spaces say a great deal about us and our everyday lifestyle and it has been scientifically proven that people who tend to have unorganised spaces are more likely to suffer from illnesses caused by stress.

Although many people could argue that renting a storage unit is not a solution to problems of untidiness as it is a bad habit that needs to be corrected, renting a self-storage unit or furniture storage can be a great help to start the change towards a new life that is free of junk, and organised.

Untidiness in homes or our normal workspace generates anxiety and apathy as the person does not feel motivated to clean, tidy up or do anything related to the organisation of the space. Therefore, in the case of a kind of chronic untidiness that has got out of control, the best thing to do is take the bull by the horns: you might have a family member or a friend who can do you a favour and offer you a space to store all those belongings, but the fact is that putting your belongings in furniture storage is one of the cheapest and most convenient options.

It is also a good idea to look at your kind of untidiness and ask yourself what the reasons are: too much accumulation (maybe a sign of early Diogenes syndrome), lack of space, bad habits or bad organisation of the space? The solution may be to move your belongings, to rehouse them in your own home or throw away what you no longer need. The belongings that you don't use but that you want to store can be sent to a storage unit, as once you have a clear, organised space you will start to notice changes in your mental health.
