Benefits of an Organized Home

Reduces Stress and Depression

There are plenty of things that are stressful in our day to day lives but it an unorganized house is not something that is often associated with stress. According to an article  in Psychological Science, “Clutter is stressful for the brain, so you’re more likely to resort to coping mechanisms such as choosing comfort foods or overeating than if you spend time in neater surroundings” Additionally, unfinished projects can increase depression and levels of cortisol (a stress hormone) in the blood stream. In a separate study, having an organized home was described as being a restful and restorative environment. The susceptibility to depression is a major concern because it can significantly impact most areas of a person’s life.

Boost Productivity

One of the areas that depression can hit the hardest is your productivity making this benefit of an organized home a two for one. In addition to fighting the effects of depression, reducing clutter in your home helps to remove distraction that keeps you from working efficiently. According to the Journal of Neuroscience, your visual cortex can become overloaded by looking at a large number of misplaced objects which, in turn, disturbs your brain’s ability to interpret information. Increased productivity can also help improve your health because it provides time for healthier meal preparation, exercise, and relaxation; all of which are necessary components of a healthy lifestyle.

Better Sleep

Being less productive and have an unorganized house tends to lead to the need to take care of tasks at the last minute. Bringing the duties of the day into your bedroom at night can cause you to stay up later each night and can significantly impact your bedtime routine. Keeping your bedroom in a state of order as a part of an organized home allows your brain to be at peace when it is time to turn in for the day which translates to falling to sleep quicker and a better night’s rest.
