Welcome back to Mentally Flexible! My guest today is Tracy McCubbin. She is author of the book Making Space, Clutter Free and is a regularly featured expert in the media, including The Washington Post, The Wall Street Journal and Goop. I was interested in speaking with Tracy because there is no doubt that our inner and outer worlds are interconnected, so the way we relate to our homes can teach us a lot about our psychology and mental health. Tracy’s work goes deeper than just simply how to organize your home, she helps people understand what she calls, the emotional clutter blocks that drive our clutter. 

In this episode we explore:

  • “emotional clutter blocks”
  • the 7 types Tracy has identified throughout her career
  • How emotional clutter blocks relate to values, identify, and shame
  • The role of intergenerational family dynamics
  • Understanding the global impact of consumption 
  • The potential for overcorrecting and becoming excessively orderly 
  • How to gauge if your home has become too chaotic
