The Mental Health Benefits of a Clean House

Over the last year, mental health has been one of the most concerning issues we’re facing since the Covid-19 pandemic has started. Don’t get me wrong, the issue of mental health has always been here—whether we’re aware or not. Overcoming it is a long battle, and the best help that we can get is not only with the medications and health specialists who help us get through each day, but also ourselves to keep on holding on.

It’s just that our concern with our mental health became a more pressing matter since we’ve drastically pushed to adjust our routine, work, and daily living because of the pandemic. Most of the time, we’re staying at home—and when we go out, it’s best to wear a facemask for protection against the virus. We’re limited to whom we meet in person and who we can invite over to our house. We’ve become cautious since we don’t know thoroughly who has it or not unless tested. It’s tough. And for our safety, most of us choose just to stay at home for our safety.

In reality, there are so many triggers and difficulties in life that are out of our control. And doing small things can actually help us fight these to keep our state of mind calm, healthy, and functional. One best example is cleaning and organizing your home. It sounds simple but, the truth is, it has a great impact on our well-being.

An Organized House Equals to an Organized Life

Okay, it may sound cliché, but the truth is this is a fact! Try closing your eyes for a moment. Imagine your house (or home) clutter-free, what you can see is all your stuff, furniture and appliances are all in perfect places. There is no dust and dirt you see. You can see and smell the cleanliness and comfort of the space. Isn’t it great?

Admit it, it’s awesome to be living in that state, right? Well, it’s actually possible to have this if you start organizing because in the bigger picture of doing this, you’ll be able to relax, focus, and live in comfort. Your stress will naturally go away, might not be completely gone, but still, your mind will calm down in some ways.

The clutter in your house doesn’t just build up things that turn into an eyesore but it also builds up stress in your head. And in order for you to avoid being stressed is to start decluttering. Putting away things from places where it doesn’t belong to is a great way to help you have a smoother and faster time on cleaning. Clutter also causes dust and dirt to build up over time.

So, a good way to start organizing your home is to start decluttering.
