Why rent a storage unit? Most people will say they need a temporary place to store their possessions during a transitional period, and that reason will be accurate. However, storage units also provide some important fringe benefits, and those benefits will be the focus of this article.

Traditional reasons to rent a storage unit.

The traditional reasons to rent a storage unit are well-known.  Either you have too many possessions for the size of your living space, or you are between moves, or you are going to be gone for an extended period of time. Those are the three main reasons why people rent storage units.

Hidden benefits of self storage.

Current research has been done that shows a correlation between the habits of people who live in a clean environment versus those who live in chaos of clutter. And the results don’t look good for those of us whose lives seem to be a constant mess. According to Susan Krauss Whitbourne, Ph.D, the “clutter effect” creates both physical and mental detriments to the flow of your day and your overall energy level.

Snacking amidst the madness is actually a very common occurrence. Due to the subtle anxiety caused by disorganization and mess, people actually tend to eat more food when surrounded by a mess. De-clutter and lose weight? It’s entirely possible.

People who consistently live in a messy home tend to have higher rates of anxiety and depression as well. Sometimes, looking at a large mess is the issue, because it can be hard to know where to start. Over time, the “mental clutter” that builds up due to the physical clutter is highly suspected to being linked to age-related memory loss.

Bottom line: is clutter bad for your health? The professionals say yes.  Happily, there is a solution to clutter.
