The beauty of simplicity
Independent living has numerous benefits, including increased security, activities, and restaurant-quality dining, but one of the surprising benefits of moving to independent living is the simplicity of decluttering.
Recently, organizing consultant, author and TV host Marie Kondo is changing the way people live their lives. Her book "The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up" is guiding people to find joy in treasured selected items, rather than just live amid the clutter. For people moving to an independent living community like Beaverton Lodge, it is a perfect time to "Konmari" your belongings.
Imagine living in a clean, clutter-free space with all the selected items of memorabilia, furniture, heirlooms, art, clothes, and collections you love. Residents at Beaverton Lodge are proud to show their neighbors their interesting possessions that might have a unique provenance or special meaning.
Did you know there are actual health benefits to living clutter free? When you are organized, you have better focus and feel in control. There will be less allergens triggering allergies, clean spaces are easier to keep sanitary and tidy, it can improve your sleep, reduce stress, save money, and reduce threats of falling. Moreover, you may find lost treasures when you clean out your home. It can be a fun project with family who can listen to your stories and maybe receive a cherished item from you.
At Beaverton Lodge, we love listening to our residents and touring their homes. Each resident is as unique as the belongings they own but are not owned by their belongings. Call us today to schedule a tour and let us show you how living simply is simply wonderful!
