How Cleanliness Can Affect Your Mental Health

We have all experienced bad days, and in those days, we tend to be lazier and skip a lot of daily chores. As a result, we end up with a messy room, office or sometimes even the whole house.

Studies have shown that a messy house will affect your mental health directly. Some people might have anxiety from the clutter, some might get nervous, in some might even bring depression.

When you clean at least once in 2 days, you tend to feel calm and relaxed in your environment. Finishing your daily chores will make you feel proud of yourself because you’ve already have accomplished something for today. In a tidy place, you can find your working tools better. Thus, you’ll finish faster with your work and have more time for yourself at the end of the day.

A study made in 2013 has shown that people who work in a clean a tidy environment are 46% more productive than people who work in a messy place. Cleanliness also affects your own health besides the mental one. Bacteria tend to grow faster in a dirty place, bringing different issues in your health, but the most common one is breathing problems and allergy.

If you have a pet, especially cats, and live in a country where there is a lot of humidity, you need to be extra careful. Pets are super sensitive to moss, and we all know that moss grows in a place where there is a lot of humidity. First, breathing problems will show in, and if not cured within days, your pet might pass away.

Cleaning brings many benefits to our mental health, productivity, pets’ health, and even our general health!
