Decluttering a home or even a room can be hard work. Especially if you are a busy working mom. But it is an extremely important part of keeping a home. It can affect how our home looks, feels and even our health. Let's look at some of the at some of the benefits of decluttering your room.
Decluttering is the first step in the decorating process.
When you are ready to begin a decorating project uncluttering the room before you begin will help you to clear your focus. It gives you the opportunity to take an inventory of the room and make decisions about what to keep and what to get rid of. Once you know exactly what you are keeping and getting rid of you can then begin to create a budget and make plans for the room. This will help you to create a feeling of accomplishment and give you the momentum to continue on with your project.
Decluttering the room gives you a fresh clean look.
When your room is uncluttered your furniture will have room to breathe giving the area a clean look. This clean look can be energizing giving you and the room a fresh feeling. Rooms containing wall to wall furniture with no room in between pieces create a feeling of overwhelm. Lots of furniture with no breathing room provides too much sensory information making anxiety rise. And the best news is the fewer things you have in the room the less you have to clean.
Decluttering your home provides physical health benefits
Less clutter in the room can provide a better nights sleep. The open space makes us feel more at ease providing a better environment for unwinding at the end of the day. Allergens will be easier to remove as there will be less to clean - who doesn't want that. Your homes stress level will go down immediately.
Decluttering can help to relationships reduce family tension
Want to free up your schedule then declutter your room. When rooms are cluttered it makes it easier to misplace things. This can cause lot us to run late for appointments and cause friction in the home. This can even cut the budget as you can take more control of your spending while evaluating what you have, what you don't use and what was a waste of money.
As you can see a cluttered home can have detrimental effects on your mental and physical health. Having a clean and organized home is part of a good wellness plan and shouldn't be overlooked.
