Can Organization Impact Your Mental Health?

Your space can have a profound impact on your mood, as well as your mental health.

A disorganized home can affect your sleep quality, productivity, and stress levels.

In today’s blog post from Simplify Home in Toronto, we are going to discuss the impact that organization can have on your mental health and some tips to help you get organized. Read on to learn more!

The Impact of Disorganization

Disorganization can ultimately have an impact on both your physical and mental wellbeing. Disorganization and clutter can lead to increased physical hazards such as mold, dust, fire hazards, and trip hazards. However, the impact it has on your mental health can be even greater.

Disorganization can pile on the stress. If you already have anxiety or depression, living in a cluttered home can exacerbate those conditions. Additionally, disorganization of your home can affect everything from your mood and sleep habits to your relationships. It can even negatively affect the amount of space and energy you have to exercise.


Obstacles That Can Prevent You From Getting Organized

One of the biggest obstacles that prevents people from getting their home organized is simply that they aren’t sure how. If you’ve never organized a home before, it can be difficult to get started without a little guidance.

Another huge obstacle that may be preventing you from organizing your home is time. When you work a full-time job, have children to care for, or other responsibilities, it can be incredibly taxing to try to find time to organize your entire house.

Learn about the housekeeping, home decluttering, and design services from Simplify Home to help you overcome these obstacles!

Benefits of Organization

  • Reduced stress: When your home is clean and organized, it’s much easier to sit back and relax. And you can say goodbye to the frustration and stress that come along with misplacing things among the clutter.

  • Better sleep: A disorganized home can lead to bad odors in your home and increased stress, both of which can affect your sleep quality. Once your home is cleaned and organized, you’ll be amazed at how easier it is to sleep at night.

  • Improved productivity: When you don’t have to spend all of your time looking for things and you can better see what you own and what projects need to be done, you’ll likely find it easier to be productive.

  • Better relationships: You can feel more comfortable and confident about inviting friends and family for a visit when your house is organized.

  • Space and energy to exercise: Your physical health has a direct impact on your mental health. When your home is organized, you’ll have more space and energy to invest in exercise and self care.


Tips to Help You Get Organized

  • Start by decluttering: When you first start cleaning and organizing your home, you always want to begin by decluttering. This includes throwing away any trash and moving items to the rooms they belong in. Check out this blog post for A Step-by-Step Guide to Decluttering Your Space.

  • Organize one room at a time: Organizing your home is a big task. However, if you begin by tackling one room at a time, you’ll be able to see your progress as you go. Additionally, working in one room at a time helps you to break down a large task into smaller ones, making it easier to complete. Check out this blog post for 10 Helpful Ways to Organize your Home.

  • Donate or throw away unnecessary items: As you’re organizing your home, don’t be afraid to donate or throw away items you don’t use anymore. We know it can be tempting to hold on to things just in case you need them down the road, but it’s a good general rule that if you haven’t used something in a year, you probably won’t be needing it very soon.
