We all know that a clean home looks nice. But besides the esthetics of a clean home, there are many other benefits derived from keeping your house tidy.
More Time & Money
A cluttered home can wreak havoc on the start of your morning. How?
If you are constantly searching for your misplaced keys or wallet, not only does this cause undue stress, but you waste time every day.
Also, when items do not have a proper place, often you end up buying something you already own because you cannot find the original item. This is not only frustrating but expensive in the long run.
Designate places for items in your home. That way you always know where to find something.
You do everything to provide your child with the best life possible. Because of that, you need to make sure that your children live in a clean, organized home.
Why? The average child spends 80-90% indoors. Dust and even mold are found more often in a dirty home, causing respiratory illnesses in children. When your home is cleaned regularly, you cut down on these dangerous allergens.
Another reason to strive for a clean living environment for your kid? A study published in 2011 in the Journal of Neuroscience showed that too many different objects in a child’s field of view overstimulates their brain. If your house is messy and cluttered, it may be overwhelming for your child to handle, affecting their ability to focus. This is dangerous because a lack of focus in toddlers leads to slowed learning.
Living in a messy environment affects your creativity and may alter your ability to make clear decisions. If you think creativity does not matter to your well-being, you are wrong.
We are born with the ability to be creative as an infant. And it is the process that allows us to navigate life’s ups and downs.
When your house is clean, you have more energy to spend time on making better decisions and find innovative ways to solve problems.
Feeling overwhelmed by household chores can negatively affect your health. Your brain is not able to shut off signals that cleaning needs to be done.
A study in the Personality and Social Psychology Bulletin showed that women who found their homes to be “cluttered” were more tired and depressed. They also had higher levels of the stress hormone cortisol than women that described their home environment as “restful” and “restorative.”
Keeping your home clean and tidy makes you feel better and allows you to enjoy the space you live in.
