Why Decluttering is Good for Your Mental Health

Jul 12, 2022
At the moment, you might be dealing with a lot of stress mentally. But you are trying to be strong and doing your very best to maintain your overall well-being and good mental health. Throughout recent weeks, you might have been building a strong morning routine, exercising regularly, drinking lots of water, and cutting down on sugar. You also make sure to have enough sleep every day and you have made a conscious effort to lessen your screen time by reading. You also signed up for activities to reduce your anxiety and have a more positive mindset wherein you find yourself excited to wake up everyday. It sounds like an easy job but we know how tough of an undertaking it is when you are going through extreme bouts of depression and anxiety. But know that it’s not impossible to learn how to manage these episodes in order for you to live a happier and fulfilled life. One way that you can start as well in your road to “healing” your wounds is by decluttering your space. You will feel that you are more in control of your life when you can remove stuff that no longer serves you in any way. You feel that sense of calm, happiness, and relaxation when your space is tidy and neat. According to WebMD, a study has proven that people who move around messy spaces are more stressed than those who have a better, cleaner environment. While a little mess can improve your creativity, being clean still helps you clear up your headspace and assists you in dealing with the demons in your head. You will find yourself more focused when you start to declutter. You will be veering away from distractions. You are also able to build your self-confidence more because you feel that you are in control, capable, and proud of your environment. You will notice that you have a better mood all throughout the day which greatly improves your relationships with other people living under the same roof. You are also more comfortable to invite friends over when your space is neat. You avoid conflicts about clutter with your housemates or family members. Your health is also taken cared of by lowering your risk to develop asthma and manage your allergies. When there is little to no clutter, you won’t get overwhelmed to clean your space on a daily basis which eliminates dust, dirt, grime, and pests. You can always start small if you have already acquired so much garbage at home and you find it overwhelming. One thing you can do is to prepare a storage area for the items that you will be keeping but don’t really use on a regular basis. The garage can serve as this area to keep these belongings. Make sure to declutter your garage first and install smart storage solutions which will help you organize your items inside of it as well.
