Sorry for being a day late on this one. I way busy filming yesterday and didn't get done in time to post.
Today is a task that might challenge some, while others may not even have to lift a finger. This task is for comfort and safety. Today we are going into the bedroom where we sleep and spend many hours of the day and night.
One of the things I notice when helping clean a hoarders home is the limited space they allow for themselves in their own bedroom, especially to sleep. I often find a king size bed with barely enough room for a small child to sleep, let alone a full size adult.
So today we are tackling the bed. We need a good night sleep to completely rest the body AND the mind. When you are cramped in your bed, you are not getting the full rest you need. Not to mention, many hoarders are insomniacs so they don't sleep well anyway. Lets work on clearing the bed this week, making it completely accessible from all sides. This means the top of the bed needs to be cleared completely off and we need at least2 to 3 feet cleared around the bed as well. I would encourage you to also change your sheets while you are at it. If you only have one set, then throw them in the wash.
By creating comfortable spaces where we can truly relax, it helps us get the rest and relaxation we need. Sleep is one of the most important things we can do for ourselves. If your bed is already cleared, you can just focus on the space around it. Post your results for all of us to see. Good luck everyone!
