How Decluttering Can Help Your Mental Health
We've looked at how decluttering can help improve your health and well-being.
From the 9th-15th of May in the UK, it is Mental Health Awareness Week. A national week to help raise awareness of the importance of mental well-being and specific topics surrounding it. This year the theme is 'loneliness'; after two years of uncertainty, lockdowns and isolating, it seems fitting to talk about the impacts of loneliness in a post-pandemic world.
What are the benefits of decluttering?
Our surroundings can quickly impact our mood and mental health in the long term if it is an ongoing problem regarding clutter around the home. An untidy space, whether at work or at home, can significantly affect how we go about our daily lives. It can cause added stress and lead to feelings of fatigue and low mood.
There are many benefits to decluttering your home; boosting your mood and improving your lifestyle are just some.
Clutter can make it difficult to find what you need. It helps you feel more organised when you know where things are, making your life hassle-free when you can get things done around your home when you're not spending ages looking for something.
Decluttering gives you more space around the home and can benefit your well-being, like encouraging you to make home meals in a well-organised kitchen and even getting better sleep in a tidy, relaxing bedroom.
Having less clutter around the house can also help you clean better. Without as many dust-harbouring items, you can clean more efficiently and help stave off mould, mildew and dust that can trigger asthma or allergies.
A tidier space can help you feel more in control, calm and happier.
Why not consider self-storage if you're struggling for space and want to declutter but not throw everything away? Store your items easily with cheap self-storage to give yourself the space you need at home.
