WRAP for Reducing Clutter
Whether you've been a collector your whole life or your accumulation is a new issue, the process of creating new habits which lead to less clutter is both rewarding and challenging. It can be challenging emotionally, physically, or both. Usually both!
Your goal is to reduce clutter. To meet this goal you may have to address issues of handling the stress of letting things go and the stress of resisting the urge to go out to get new things.
WRAP is a structure systems you develop yourself. It is a plan for getting well, staying well, and resolving life issues and challenges. It includes: A wellness toolbox, a daily maintenance plan, triggers and action plans, early warning signs and action plans, when things are breaking down and action plans, a crisis plan and post crisis plan. WRAP is an evidence-based practice developed by Mary Ellen Copeland, PhD.
