Whether you’re an avid cleaner or you absolutely hate the chore of doing so, there’s no denying that living in a cleaner home makes us feel good on the inside. Having too much mess within your home can impact your psychological health, causing you to feel stressed as cleaning your home becomes a difficult task. You can help to reignite the positive feelings within your home and life by living in a clean and friendly environment. We’ve put together the top 5 reasons why a spotless home is the key to happy living.
It’s inevitable that throwing things away is going to be a difficult task. Many people find the value in things quickly and easily, whether it’s because of personal reasons or because you believe there is still practical use to it. An unorganised home equals chaos, and a chaotic home equals a chaotic mind.
You can clear unorganised mess from your home in a number of fun and easy ways. Whether you want to give things away to family and friends, donate to charity or sell. If you have too many items that aren’t at their best and are better off in the bin, arrange for a skip to come to your home to take away any waste and unsold items.
The cleanliness of your home has the ability to shape who you are; your mood, outlook and productivity levels. By taking the time to remove the rubbish and clutter from within your home and create a clean, carefree space, you’ll soon begin to find that your productivity levels soar and you become more useful both at home and work.
A tidy home works in the same way a tidy desk at work would- if it’s messy, it could be bad news for your productivity levels. A clean environment ca boost your energy levels and overall health, helping you to remain focused throughout the day.
Though some people hate cleaning, it can actually be very therapeutic. By removing excess rubbish from your home and life, your body, soul and mind will feel cleansed and free (a lot like your home!). People that put time in to keeping their home mess free are usually happier beings. The actual process of cleaning can provide us with satisfaction as we get the job done, helping to boost our moods and relieve symptoms of stress.
If you have a lot to get through, why not start with your bedroom? A clean and organised bedroom can help to promote a peaceful relaxation area, as well as improved sleep.
Multiple conducted studies have shown that living in a clean and tidy home can be great for our health. Twenty minutes of exercise a week can impact depression, and the great thing is that cleaning counts as a form of exercise! Obviously some dusting here and there won’t be beneficial, however carrying out cleaning activities that leave you exhausted means you’ll be killing two birds with one stone.
Research has also shown that being in a clean and tidy environment could lead to healthier food choices, and those who worked in a neater space were twice as likely to choose fruit over chocolate!
Perhaps the mess in your home stems from bad habits that are causing you to over buy and live in a chaotic home. Whilst buying less is the obvious way to cut back on mess and have a tidy, clean home, you could also focus your spending on experiences rather than material things. Living with less and experiencing more is a great way to ensure healthy and happy minds as well as a stress free home.
Whether you want to go to the gym, see a film or visit a theme park- the possibilities are endless if you focus your bad habits of spending to experience days instead.
If you’re currently cleaning your home and are finding you have a lot of items you wish to keep, perhaps a self-storage unit could be the answer? This way, you’ll be able to keep your treasured possessions but in a place that doesn’t affect your home life.
