How Self-Storage can Help You Stay Healthy in 2019


January 17th, 2019

It’s a new year, when most of us decide to take on new challenges and set goals for ourselves to chip away at for the next few months. Some of the more common resolutions tend to revolve around getting or staying healthy, and believe it or not, Extra Attic’s convenient locations here in North Carolina can help you do just that!

When our environments are decluttered and neatly arranged, our minds and bodies respond positively. That, combined with the bonus of checking something off that to-do list, can give you the positive outlook you need to tackle your other major projects.

Clear out the cobwebs
Have you ever tried to focus on a project at home, but found yourself frequently wandering off to take care of something else instead? It’s hardly a secret that it can be difficult to focus on any one thing if you have tons of items on your list, but it can be even more challenging when some of those objects are literally right in front of you, collecting dust. Make a plan to sweep through your home and pick out all of the things you’ve been meaning to put out of the way, before you try and focus on any of your new workouts or setting up your kitchen for healthier meal times. That way, you can have it all transferred to a trusted self-storage facility (and not just crammed into your attic space), leaving you with much more room with which to work!

Catch some Zs
When we’re stressed out – whether because there is too much on our plates, or because we’re feeling cornered in a cluttered home or workspace – it negatively affects our sleeping patterns. As a result, we don’t have the energy to keep up with some of our other New Year’s resolutions, like waking up early to go for a jog or to prepare a healthy lunch before heading off to work. But having everything in its proper place can go a long way in reducing stress and getting to bed without spending too much time counting sheep. With a self-storage unit at your disposal, you can make your home a much more relaxing place by storing away what you aren’t using all of the time – like holiday decorations and seasonal sports or lawn equipment – with the added benefit of knowing it’s safe and sound until you need it again.

Give yourself a boost 
An organized space reflects an active and involved attitude. And because we’re generally creatures of habit, a consistently clean and tidy environment reminds us that we’re always accomplishing new things, big or small. That kind of optimism goes a long way in bolstering us through our daily routines, and gives us the confidence we need to keep up with those resolutions beyond the month of January. And it’s a lot easier to maintain a healthy, organized environment when you start things off the right way. Renting a self-storage unit is a secure place for all those extra items that are preventing you from keeping up with your organizational aspirations.

If you’re ready to kick off your new year in a clean, healthy space, we definitely recommend researching your self-storage options! And if you’d like to speak with an expert at any one of our locations, contact Extra Attic and find out what we have in store for you.
