We are all a product of our environments. Conversely, the environments we create are a direct reflection of our mental, physical, and emotional health. We all know that factors such as finances, work, and relationships are stressors in our lives, and when we come home, we want to feel like we’re entering a refuge, safe from the demands of life.
But does your home provide a safe escape from stress, or is it causing you additional stress that you might not be aware of?
If you have a disorganized, cluttered, or poorly decorated space, you may be adding subconscious stress into your life which prevents you from unwinding the way you should when you get home.
- Clutter is a Source of Stress: Just being in a cluttered room can make you feel uneasy, restless, and without direction. There is too much for the eye to process and you are unable to focus properly and efficiently due to this. Living in a cluttered home can be a constant source of low stress, which can be draining over time.
- Organizing your Home Saves Money, Time, and More: There are several ways that being disorganized can cost you. If you aren’t organized, you will be spending more time looking for places to put things, and then extra time trying to find things. If you don’t keep papers organized, you’re more likely to pay bills late. Being disorganized drains many of your resources that you could be using more productively.
- Comfortable Surrounding are Relaxing: There is a reason that marketers are extremely good at making you feel a certain way when you look at ads- being in a space characterized by order, tranquility, and a physical expression of your tastes, can make you feel better and de-stress you.
While we are now in Spring and it represents the perfect time to do some cleaning and organizing, Health Fitness Revolution believes that ANY time is a good time to put your life in order to be more productive, happy, and healthy!
