With summer upon us, many families find themselves hosting friends and family from out of town. Remember that quote from Ben Franklin, “Guests, like fish, begin to smell in three days”?  In order to be certain that you can deal with your guests (no matter their length of stay), it can help to psychologically prepare yourself so you don’t feel as though you have smelly fish invading your home! Regina Leeds, a professional organizer explains,  “It’s best to work out a way to deal with them in your heart before they arrive so that you aren’t driven insane.”

We can all, more than likely, think of a guest we might need to psychologically prepare for. Read Leeds article, “Inner Peace Through Outer Order: Eliminate Guest Stress Syndrome” featured on Psychology Today.
