Getting your home in order isn’t something you should keep putting off until you have time. It’s something that’s so important you need to prioritize because it leads to so many positive benefits!
When you declutter your home, you take control over your belongings and your time instead of letting them control you. Just think, is there something you’d like more time to do? Meal planning, family time, workouts, rest?
More time is just one major benefit of an organized home. Perhaps even greater is that less mess leads to less stress and overwhelm. Because so much of our lives are out of our control, managing and keeping a clean home is an impactful way to improve your wellness and make your space a peaceful sanctuary from the chaos outside.
Want even more reasons to get your home in order? Here’s eight of our favorite benefits of an organized home:
Having so much you can’t keep track of it all can lead to disorganization, clutter and, yes, even stress. It’s frustrating not to be able to find what you need or waste money on things you already own. Just being in a cluttered room creates stress, and while it can be a challenge to get everything under control, it’s worth it. You can even reduce your housework by 40 percent!
Clutter also contributes dust buildup, which can lead to many health issues. An untidy house can result in problems with mold and mildew, and those can pose even more serious threats. If addressed, such complications are less likely. In addition, cleaning tasks, such as organizing, dusting, vacuuming and sweeping and great cardiovascular exercise. Do it for your health!
Getting enough sleep is one of the best ways to boost your overall well-being, to ensure your body functions optimally and fights off illness. Living in an organized home leads to calmer surroundings, and with fewer distractions, you are able to give your body and mind permission to rest. Studies indicate that people are able to sleep better once their homes are in order.
Time is a precious gift, but we don’t always spend it wisely, especially when it comes to our homes. A messy home takes away more than your inner peace, but it can easily drain your energy and your time. You may find yourself wasting time searching for things, and enough of that takes away from spending time with your family, pursuing your hobbies or focusing on you.
Has clutter ever had you seeing double? As in, you bought something you needed only to find that you already had it? When you have too much, it’s very easy to lose track of what you have. So the more time you spend cleaning things out and getting your home organized, the more money you will very likely have in the long run!
When everything has a place and everything is in its place, there is less room for distractions, particularly in your mind. If your to-do list for your home is a mile long (or longer), then that can take your focus off the things that need your attention. Whether at work or at home, organization helps boost your creativity and your productivity. Get to work on cleaning, then get to work!
Banishing clutter from your home can help alleviate feelings of depression and anxiety. Disorganization can feel heavy, physically and emotionally, because it always feels like there is an overwhelming task to tackle. As you work to get organized, everything may feel lighter, the home may feel new, and you may feel like a renewed person!
Creating an organized home sends so many positive messages to yourself and others. For one, you set a good example to your kids and other family members. It also establishes a tone of respect for your things and your relationship to them and others. Plus it frees up your time to strengthen your relationships with the ones you love.
