About.com did a poll on stress and clutter. Turns out only about 6% (846 folks) of the pollsters say their home is clutter free. What does that say about the rest of those polled?

About 20% (2725 people) feel very little embarrassement about their tiny bit of clutter. I wonder if that number runs true for 20% of the US population?

Around 37% (4962 people) of those polled only clean up their clutter when they know somebody is coming over. Lots of us do that.

Approximately 35% (4736) say their clutter is so much they don’t even want to go home. They consider the clutter very stressful and can’t relax amidst it all. For these people, they feel overwhelmed by the clutter. To them, if they were to clean it up, they have no idea where to begin decluttering.

Looking at the 4 groups in the poll, where do you figure in? Think about your home. Do you know the reasons you struggle with clutter? Figuring out some of the reasons you keep clutter could be the first step to changing the habit.

Do you feel stressed about your home’s clutter levels? If so, understand it is mainly a learned habit. That’s good news because if you desire, you can change the habit.

Professionals working in the clutter field reveal that people clutter for many reasons. Whatever those reasons are they often lead the clutterer to feeling anxiety or worry about the habit.

Research done by Beverly Taylor, a hypnotherapist who studies clutterer’s behavior, brings to light that clutterers have a strong attachment to having things. Fortunately, Ms. Taylor’s research also confirms that using hypnosis helps people declutter.

Almost anytime a person expresses a strong emotion, they also hypnotize themselves. Most people are unaware of this phenomenon. Once hypnotized, people then suggest specific ideas to themselves. If the ideas cause people to feel negatively about themselves, this causes fear. It can also cause a person to become immobilized.

In her research, Ms. Taylor found that clutterers have a high amount of negative emotions attached to cluttering behavior. These stuck negative emotions essentially discourage and can cripple hoarders and clutterers from wanting to change their behavior. She has developed a program that releases the stuck negative emotion. Once the clutterer eliminates the stuck negative emotion, he or she can move forward in life. This forward movement can help a clutterer learn to feel more comfortable decluttering.

Thankfully, experts like Beverly Keyes Taylor, also known as the Clean Up Queen, can help clutterers quit the habit. She has helped many people let go of what they initially just could not release.
