When you look around your home, does it feel a bit overwhelming? Are there piles of papers? Can you see the surface of your desk/dressers/counters? Has your home become cluttered? A lack of organization can contribute to increased irritability and negative feelings, as well as reduced productivity. There are health benefits associated with reorganizing… It’s time to declutter! 

Curious about the benefits? 

Decluttering can contribute to improved sleep hygiene

Spending time in a disorganized space may contribute to a cluttered mind. Having a busy brain before sleep may prevent you from winding down. Try cleaning out your space and see how it impacts your sleep.

Decluttering can enhance productivity

It’s easy to be distracted by surroundings, especially if you’re trying to work at a messy desk. In fact, a clean workspace can increase concentration levels and creativity. Make some time to reorganize your work station and reap the productivity benefits.

Decluttering can contribute reduced stress levels and improved mood

Stress levels can increase in response to a messy space – especially if you can’t find what you’re looking for when you need it. It makes sense then that tidying up can help reduce stress levels and improve your mood.

Decluttering can reduce allergies

When our homes or offices get messy, they accumulate allergens and dust – this may lead to poor airflow. Cleaning up gives us the opportunity to rid our spaces of these allergens and reduce allergies, asthma and eczema.
