It’s Stress Awareness Month

April is National Stress Awareness Month, a time to contemplate how stress can affect physical and mental health. This past year aside, it often isn’t difficult to pinpoint the causes of our stress. Pressure at work, financial issues and health concerns all play a role. At home, the one place where we expect not to feel stressed, we may be at risk.

Many factors can cause stress at home. Look around your space: do you find it a challenge to move freely at times? Do clothes pile up because your closets are stuffed and there’s no room for another dresser? Is your guest room overrun with extra furniture and accessories to the point that long-distance relatives can’t visit?

The feeling of too much clutter and too little room to move around at home can contribute to anxiety. Fortunately this is one issue that can be remedied with self-storage. We tend to hang onto things on the chance they are needed in the future. It makes sense to find free space at home to hold stuff, but over time you may realize you need the space for another purpose. 

When you rent a Chesapeake self-storage unit, you create an opportunity to reduce stress at home:

  • Your surplus belongings are put in a secure space with a lock, so you don’t have to worry about anything getting lost.
  • A climate-controlled unit means items are less susceptible to weather damage and dust and mites. Clothing will remain fresh and clean, and wooden furniture in good shape.
  • You regain space at home and may mentally feel lighter and less claustrophobic.

What’s more, self-storage is more affordable than you think. At Eden Way Storage Center, we also offer a $1 first month’s rent special on select units to new tenants, plus military discounts and free use of a moving truck so there’s no wear and tear on your car.
