There are a couple of articles and memes making the rounds on Facebook and other social media saying that those who are constantly late, disorganized, and cluttered are more happy and/or productive. However, there is more information that backs the idea that being organized and clean is more beneficial to your health and happiness. Here are five benefits of being organized and clean:
- Less Stress
Knowing where everything is and where it goes can help reduce your stress. According to a study done by Shape, those who live in cluttered spaces are more depressed and stressed than those who live in more clean and organized spaces.
You can gain energy and a sense of calm while organizing and cleaning whatever you are working on. Organizing your work area can even give you the extra boost of energy you need to get through the rest of the work day, according to WebMD.
You can get more done in a shorter amount of time when you are organized. You also have more time to spend doing the things you really want to do if you and your spaces are more organized and clean.
You gain a great sense of calm, satisfaction and control when you take the time to declutter and organize your home and workspace. You have more control over your life when you know where to find anything and everything you need and want instead of rummaging through boxes and drawers for hours on end.
