How do our closets affect our wellness? 

Yes, even downsizing our closets matters. Why? Because since WELLNESS is a top priority in Aging Gracefull; this post explains the negative effects of disorganized closets. Please read on


Here’s 3 reasons downsizing closets does matter.

After taking out the wire racks, this was my world until Bob and I designed my new closet
BobBob the former Cypress builder, measuring for the new units

1. Unconscious stress

Caused by cluttered closets

Visual confusion

Disorganization of what works and what doesn’t the no,no, maybe routine before an item of clothing works for you

2. Triggers regrets

Hanging on to clothing from a former lifestyle or time

Lifestyle changes require changes in our clothing

Calulate what you are really needing routinely and make your lists to avoid buying mistakes.

3. Produces shame or guilt

Constant reminders of weight gain of all that no longer fits you,

Or of  job loss or new stage of life that is way different

Feelings of guilt from constant procrastination on why can’t I get this done??

The positive rewards of downsizing even our closets

1. Renewed positive outlook of I did it!

Take note of the drawers on 2 sides that make my world so much easier


2. Acceptance of a new reality happens.

Okay so this is my new life whether my size, my lifestyle, or my space available

3. Now you know what you actually need and what to let go of

Yep, even after closet completed, changing out seasonal clothing and etc., more downsizing had to happen



Take out off season or dressier items to another closet or put in bins

Remember, my book quote, “stuff fills up space available so it is actually

cheating to merely delay downsizing to move to another closet.

I would like to encourage you all to use this this extremely unusual timing with the virus to stay positive and stay productive. This WILL NOT LAST FOREVER and when it ends, look at where you will be…..ahead of the game!
