Stress affects all of us and can have an impact on your body, immune system and mental health. Going into a new year, it’s the perfect time to make efforts to reduce stress in your life and cultivate good mental health habits. Whether you’ve resolved to clear out space in the garage to make room to park your vehicle or you’re worried about planning the move to a new home, renting self-storage helps reduce stress and clutter in your life.
Common Pain Points Eased by Self-Storage
Renting a self-storage unit and eliminating clutter and chaos from your daily life may not be the first thing that jumps to mind when you think about self-care. Making efforts to reduce stress and self-care go hand-in-hand, which makes self-storage a great solution to both mental and physical clutter in your life.
Remodeling Your Home or Business — Refreshing your spaces, whether in your home or at your business, often leads to people tripping over boxes, furniture in disarray and a loss of sleep before the final reveal. Renting a self-storage unit provides a secure space out of the way of construction to eliminate unnecessary clutter during a remodel or temporary move from your home or business.
Overflow Items — Does this sound familiar? A blizzard rolls in and your garage is so full that you can’t park your vehicle inside. Your car is left outside in the snow and you have to bundle up, start the engine, scrap the windshield, shovel the driveway and finally get on your way. Meanwhile, your garage is filled with overflow items — camping gear, holiday decorations, boxes you haven’t opened since college — staying warm and toasty. Renting a self-storage unit for overflow items reduces your daily stress level and keeps your fingers warm when you can start the car and go from the comfort of your garage in the morning.
Downsizing — A variety of life transitions prompt the need for downsizing. Along with the anxiety that comes along with a divorce, moving a parent to senior living or preparing for a tour overseas, what to do with your extra furniture shouldn’t add to your stress. Renting a self-storage unit eases the pain of downsizing by providing a reliable and easily accessible space for your belongings.
Moving to a New Home — Few things cause more stress than prepping to move to a new apartment, a new city or a new house, especially when closing dates get pushed back. Sometimes your new apartment won’t be ready before you have to be out of the old place and self-storage becomes necessary. Rather than worry about squeezing everything you own into your brother’s garage, rent a self-storage unit to ease stress during a move.
