Friendship Living & Crowning Touch Partner to Educate on Organizing & Decluttering Best Practices

WHO:             Friendship Living and Crowning Touch Senior Moving Services

WHAT:          Special Organizing and Decluttering Presentation

WHY:             In today’s culture, people are bombarded with influential messages implying we must have more to be happy, when in fact, accumulation has adverse effects on our physical and mental well-being, as well as personal time.  Friendship Living is offering this special presentation as it aligns with the community’s mission of “supporting friends by providing peace of mind.”

Studies show that having fewer items in the home helps individuals have more time because there is less to fix, clean, and arrange. Many find that decluttering physical spaces motivates them to declutter other areas of their lives, including personal calendars.  Decluttering these areas creates more physical space, more personal time, and as a result, more mental space.  Top psychological benefits of the decluttering process include:

·      Improved concentration: excessive items in your surroundings can negatively impact your ability to focus and process information

·      Lower stress levels

·      Boosted moods

·      More creativity

·      Better sleeping habits

To share this important information, Friendship Living is pleased to partner with expert downsizer Linda Balentine, owner of Crowning Touch Senior Moving Services.

WHO SHOULD ATTEND:             Everyone!  This event is free and open to the public.  Attendees who sign in will be entered into a drawing for a chance to win a free gift.

WHEN:          Tuesday, January 14th, 1 p.m.

WHERE:       Friendship Living’s Chapel, located in the Residents’ Center at 397 Hershberger Road, NW, Roanoke, VA 24012
