Your Clutter Speaks Of Your Mental Health Issues… Say What?
It isn’t often that you get to have some entertainment when it comes to the topic of mental health, and today, we have an amusing and rather entertaining approach to mental health. It is through some observations and conclusions made by various sources, including clinical psychologist Arin Axenova, that the type of messes you have in your living space can be an indication of some psychological problems you may have. Of course, to say that a mess is a direct link to a psychological problem isn’t what we’re trying to say – but it is interesting nonetheless, and worth a couple of laughs when you start noticing these messes in your friends’ and family member’s homes!
The Cluttered Entrance Hall
Let’s be real here. Many people don’t even have an entrance hall. Well, to make up for this the point includes any mess near the entrance or in an actual hall of a home or apartment. Apparently, the mess in this area is indicative of a fear of communication. That means if you have umbrellas, shoes, coats, bags, and a variety of odd things scattered around the entrance of your home, you may be the type of person who tends to block out others and distance yourself. People like these supposedly find it challenging to meet new people and generally feel uneasy around strangers. Hmmm. It could also mean you’re really lazy and couldn’t be bothered to pick up your umbrella, coat, and dirty shoes from the last time it rained.
The Cluttered Kitchen
If your kitchen is piled high with dirty dishes, not to mention the grubby cupboards and maybe dirty dinner tables, then it can be a sign of your emotional stability, as it were. It’s said that the owner of a home or apartment with a cluttered kitchen is likely a sufferer from anxiety or depression. The idea stems from the fact that the person has to overcome their inner demons before they can get down to doing the most menial of tasks like washing their dishes. Another suggestion is that the person is narcissistic or possibly frivolous. Oh, and they don’t think about the future often. So, in this spirit, what will you think of the next time you pack your dirty dishware into the sink? We bet your sink is going to start to sparkle!
The Cluttered Desk Shelving
If the shelves of a desk are chaotic and covered with junk and clutter while the rest of the home appears tidy, it is indicative of a person with perfectionist traits. Well, we think a lot of parents who have ordered their kids to go and clean their bedrooms or other rooms of the home have kids who appear highly perfectionist, indeed! Apparently people whose homes are in this state are those who have unrealistic expectations that often actually make them angry.
The Cluttered Bed
Someone whose bed is covered in clothing, cosmetics, dirty dishes, books, and other clutter may be dealing with issues in their personal life, like perhaps a breakup, divorce, or an argument with a loved one. Apparently the clutter on the bed is a bad habit developed as a means of distraction from the real issue. This extends to be indicative of a person who yearns for a relationship instead of being alone any longer. Well, we think everyone has had a time when their bed appeared this way! God forbid that anyone who has read anything suggesting these things to catch sight of your bed in such a state!
The Cluttered Garage/Balcony
Several people’s homes have cluttered garages or balconies, and it is said that these are signs of fear, like being afraid of losing everything in a moment. Their collection of many things that are essentially useless is supposed to be a means of them trying to deal with fears and phobias and to create an illusion of safety. It is also said that having problems letting go of useless items shows an inability to make decisions and points to neurotic characteristics.
One thing is for sure – you will never look at the messes in your home the same way again! In fact, all of this may just be enough to motivate you to keep your home spotless just so that nobody can get the idea that you may have psychological problems. Perhaps you have even wondered before whether any of your household habits were linked to your mental health in any way. Well, now you know!
