Empowering Reasons Why Having A Organised Home Can Impact Your Mind

The world has embraced decluttering and organising in a big way especially having an organised home.  Marie Kondo has become everyone’s tidying guru and inspired people to sort out their lives by sorting out their closets.

Living in a tidy, well-organised home is a great feeling but that isn’t the reality for most of us.  Busy lives, kids and lack of motivation can see us living in cluttered, untidy homes that do anything but spark joy.

Having a well-organised home isn’t just good for housekeeping, it has a surprising effect on your health too, both mentally and physically.

Did you know that having a organised home can impact your mood and productivity? Here are the reasons why. #organisedhome #homeorganisation #organiationtips #productivity #productive #organisation #organising

Declutter

There’s no point in organising your home until you’ve sorted through all of your belonging and ruthlessly removed items you don’t need or won’t use.

If you have a big house or a lot of stuff, you’re going to need a skip of a specialist removal company.  For help, visit this web site for more information. 

As a general rule of thumb, you should have everything you own and place it in one of the following categories:

  • Rubbish - to be thrown out or recycled.
  • Donate - do some good and give any unwanted items in good condition to charity.
  • Sell - make some extra cash selling items on eBay, Facebook market or holding a yard sale.
  • Keep - be strict with yourself and then everything you are left with will be truly useful or mean something to you. Try and ask yourself "will I be using this item"?

You Get Sick Less Often

If you’re living in an untidy mess, you probably spend any free time you do have trying to move the clutter, leaving no time to actually clean.

This can lead to a build-up of dust, dirt and other nasties that can cause allergies, respiratory issues and stomach bugs.

Tidying As A Form Of Self Care

If being in an organised environment gives you a boost, then it is absolutely a form of self-care, something you do to make yourself feel better.

It Gives Us A Sense Of Achievement

There are many aspects of our lives that are outside of our control.  Organising is one thing that we can control, so it gives us a sense of achievement that something difficult to find.

Reduces Anxiety

Living in a disorganised space is stressful, leading to increased stress and anxiety. A cleaner environment removes that trigger and allows our minds to relax.

Not being organised can feel like we’re failing at what should be an easy task.

It Improves Family Relationships

The reduced stress and worry allow you to focus your time and energy on the important things in your life, including your relationships.  You will sleep better, argue less and spend less time trying to find things or buying duplicates.

If you and your partner have very different views on tidying then this can cause division, especially if one person does the lions share of the household chores.

It Makes Us More Productive

Having more mental energy can help you to focus on other things in your life like your career or hobby.  Avoiding and worrying about the state of our homes can take up far more energy than actually organising it.
