Your home may be perfect but possibly you have not considered the way you are going to interact with it. Have you fully reflected on the way you (and possibly a family) live your life. Most of us are not perfect, we make mess and we may be too busy to be continually tidying. We might have small children or pets, both are unlikely to conform to the ‘rules’ of ‘ideal’ living. If your experience of your home is appearing less than perfect, don’t despair, a few small changes should put you back on track.
The first symptoms of a dysfunctional home might seem minor but can actually be causing you damaging stress and frustration. For example, when you get up for work in the morning can you always find appropriate clothes ready for you and suitable for any occasion or weather condition? Are you repeatedly scrubbing floors clean of muddy footprints or possibly paw prints? Is you kitchen running like a ‘well oiled machine’ or a clunky old tractor? Do you loose things on a regular basis, your keys, glasses, paperwork? If you can relate to any of these questions or frequently experience other irritating situations the organization of your home need reviewing before you start developing unnecessary stress symptoms.
