Cleanliness is Wellness: Staying Organized
Getting home after a long work day is meant to be relaxing and calming. However, for some, being home may be just as stressful as work because of the lack of cleanliness. Imagine having to arrive to a cluttered home or a pile of dishes? And instead of cleaning them up, you convince yourself you’ll do it tomorrow because you’re just too tired. This in itself shows not just lack in cleanliness, but lack in self-care. You must care enough about yourself to maintain a clean or tidy environment that will ultimately benefit you.
How many times have you been late to work because you can’t find your keys in the morning? How much counter space have you taken up in your restroom because your makeup and hairbrushes are all over the place?
Studies at Indiana University and Princeton University have shown that people with cleaner homes were healthier, more active and clutter led to lack of focus on a particular task. Makes sense on why you get grumpy in the mornings when you can’t find your keys, right? If these minor things can cause a negative effect to your mornings and maybe even daily routine, just think of how much stress and entire messy home can cause.
It may seem that you need an entire day to clean up the mess you have all over your home, but remember, one small step is a step closer than you were before and it’s progress!
