Having a cluttered home can really prevent you from being calm and relaxed when you need it the most. The tricky part is that we accumulate things slowly over time, so we often don’t notice that it’s just too much.
To make things worse, cluttered homes are more difficult to keep clean, so if you have lots of stuff, it’ll be dirty whether you want to admit it or not.
Our surroundings have a direct impact on our feelings of stress and anxiety. In a cluttered home, we tend to be less productive and focus harder. And it makes sense – when you’re in a home when there’s a ton of dishes and laundry to do, and you keep bumping into stuff wherever you go, it’s not likely you’ll get anything done.
The idea that something as simple as decluttering and tidying up can make such a difference is so obvious, and yet, many people are missing it. Try for yourself and you’ll quickly see that it’s much more helpful than you could imagine.
