Have you ever helped someone and you got energy that you wanted help yourself too?

I started to work with someone that has a clutter situation and I came home and found all this energy to do work around my home to clean more clutter up here. I figure the less we have to deal with the better. I feel good on what I have done so far and today. How about you guys do you get energy from helping someone else that you go home and do work on your home too?

I used to help people, only to go home and flop! (no more energy left to do anything, not even for eating!)

@Hannihar but I do understand what you mean, while helping others decluttering, we suddenly have some ideas to do the same. (eventually )

I have no one to help out. I need to find the energy to clean up my own house.

Sometimes it works that way. I like decluttering and the more I do the more I want to do.

I understand that Judy. I love to get rid of things and feel good that I did afterwards.

I've never helped anyone clean their home, but when I watch hoarders, I get very motivated to clean my home.

Yes, sometimes helping others can motivate me to do the same thing for myself.

I am an ordinary human being. I get angry sometimes for that

Sometimes, yes, if I see that the place is already clean. I get motivated to clean my own place as well.

That's good! I think that when you've spent time doing that then your brain is in that mode and it automatically wants to carry on It happens to me every time I tidy my son's bedroom, but cleaning up after him takes up most of my time and there's none left to sort out my stuff
