Decluttering is an important way to practice self-care. Clutter seems to accumulate more these days when it comes to online shopping, at-home work days, and a pandemic on our hands. Taking back control over your home will benefit you physically and emotionally!
More time for Yourself
When you own less, there isn’t as many things to manage. You’ll spend a lot less time cleaning and tidying up around the house since there’s much less of it now. This means you’ll have more time to do the stuff that matters most to you!
A cluttered home means a clutter brain. When you clear the clutter, less of your
mental capacity will be hindered by managing the stuff you own. Your decision
fatigue will be lower since you have fewer things to decide what to do with.
Better Night Sleep
If you have been stressing over the clutter in your house, I’m sure that there have been a few sleepless nights here and there. Have a clutter-free home. When you think about the clutter, you are always mentally processing external stimuli of all that clutter. Once you add in the fact that your brain will now only think about it as a job to finish, a good night sleep will be hard to come by after all that activity.
Saves You Money
Even though buying less doesn’t always mean spending less, you will find yourself saving money when it comes to buying certain things. Like clothes for example.
Why? Well, your home now has a defined space now. Now that you have
decluttered your clothes and only have the pieces that work for you, you won’t
spend as much money now in search of more clothes.
Dust and dander (pet and dandruff) accumulate overtime, especially in cluttered
households. You might think that the room isn’t a place you go in often, but it’s still creating a buildup of allergens in the air. When you rid your house of unwanted clutter, you’ll notice improvement with family members who suffer from allergies.
Tip: Try out the “four box method.” Label four boxes as follows: Give away, throw
away, keep, and store. Your house will be clutter-free in no time and so will your head space.
