Embrace Your Messiness

Say Yes to Mess” and stop feeling guilty about how disheveled your house is or how scattered your days are. You can reduce your stress (and, thus, possibly your headaches) by changing the way you think about clutter.

Rest assured that this isn’t a sign of weakness or laziness. In fact, messiness is illustrative of “creative, limber minds” and slobs are “probably better parents and nicer and cooler than their tidier counterparts. “The anti-anticlutter movement “confirms what you have known, deep down, all along: really neat people are not avatars of the good life; they are humorless and inflexible prigs, and have way too much time on their hands.”

I love the idea, but can I really let my guilt go?
