Is Clutter Making You Fat? Take Natural Solutions Magazine's Clutter Quiz and Get Home Organizing Tips for 2009
Date:1/8/2009

BOULDER, Colo., Jan. 8 /PRNewswire/ -- Most people are used to the clutter in their homes getting out of control occasionally, but when piles of trash block hallways, the top of the bed has been MIA for weeks, and things get lost (and sometimes never found) in the chaos, the disorganization may be preventing you from living a happy, peaceful life and could be taking its toll on your physical and mental health.

Natural Solutions: Vibrant Health, Balanced Living magazine's January issue -- on newsstands now -- describes this clutter-depression relationship and how highly disorganized homes may even cause weight gain, while offering strategies for overcoming organizational roadblocks.

Americans spent $6.9 billion organizing their homes in 2006. By 2011, that number is expected to increase to $8.6 billion. The quiz "How Cluttered Is Your Home?" helps the reader gauge his or her attitudes toward home functionality and clutter. The answers determine how serious one's clutter problem is and suggests an appropriate path to sanity. Additionally, "organizing doc" Ronit Zweig, PsyD, offers five steps to mastering organization in "De-cluttering 101."

"We discovered that 90 percent of chronic clutterers are women. Professional organizers and mental health professionals see a correlation between a cluttered home and gaining weight," said Linda Sparrowe, Natural Solutions' editor-in-chief. "When clutter becomes overwhelming, it's definitely easier to opt for fast foods than to cook a healthy meal. Mindless overeating or compulsive shopping calms this out-of-control feeling -- but only temporarily."

If a cluttered home is a reflection of your feelings and habitual procrastination, then merely cleaning or hiring a professional organizer may not be enough simply because the behavior is too firmly established to change quickly. Take baby steps to de-clutter and don't expect perfection.
