How a good spring clean helps more than just your homeDate Posted: 30 March 2019
The sun has come out and spring is on its way, that can only mean one thing... A spring clean!
Here are 5 reasons how a declutter and spring clean of your home can help you and your wellbeing:
#1 You create more space
Getting rid of things you don't need anymore doesn't just help make your home look tidier but it helps get rid of old negative energy and makes room for new things to come into your life. If you want more abundance in your life you need to be ready for it, this starts with a positive mindset. Decluttering and making room in your life for what you want is a great start!
#2 Helps you make healthier choices
There is research out there that shows a less cluttered environment will motivate you to choose healthier options. Having a clear out and having a clean and tidy home is also an act of self-love and respect for yourself.
#3 You feel more focussed
You will mentally and emotionally feel more focussed on your goals in a decluttered environment. Working in a clean and tidy environment increases concentration and productivity.
#4 Less stress
According to researchers at UCLA's Center of Everyday Lives and Families (CELF), there's a link between high cortisol (a stress hormone) in women who own homes with a "high density of household objects." Being less stressed will help you relax better, you will be happier, improving your relationship with friends and family.
#5 Saves time and money!
When you have a tidy house or workspace you know where everything is, literally saving you time finding things. You may also be able to sell things that you no longer need anymore or find better deals on insurance or energy suppliers, both will give you a bit of extra cash.
