Why decluttering is good for your mental health

Have you noticed that an untidy environment increases your stress levels? It can be overwhelming to live in a cluttered space, leading to irritability and frustration.

Decluttering your physical space can do wonders for your mental health. A clean and organised environment creates a space that is relaxing and stress-free, helping you to feel calmer and happier. 

Let’s explore a few mental health benefits of decluttering.

Better focus

Being able to focus can improve your productivity in any work and living environment. However, a disorganised space can do the opposite. Decluttering your physical space not only creates an environment of calm and relaxation but also helps you to focus better and reduce stress levels. 

If you’re wondering where to begin, then check out our ultimate decluttering guide for a fresh start!

Boost self-esteem

When our living and working spaces are cluttered and overwhelming, it can be difficult to feel good about ourselves. The stress of dealing with a chaotic environment can also take a toll on our mental health, making us feel frustrated and down.

Decluttering your physical space can do wonders for your self-esteem. A clean and organised environment creates a space that is positive and uplifting, helping you to feel more confident and happy.

Reduce stress

A cluttered environment can be a major source of stress and anxiety. Taking the time to clean and organise your space helps you to take control of your environment and create a more relaxing space. Decluttering can also decrease the amount of housework needed, and lower your body’s cortisol levels.

Improve relationships

A cluttered environment can put a lot of strain on a relationship, but a clean and organised environment creates a space that is positive and uplifting, helping you to feel more connected to the people around you.

Decluttering can also reduce stress levels, which can improve communication and cooperation between family members and friends.

Lower risk of physical ailments

When the body is healthy then the mind has fewer issues to worry about, but a cluttered home can gather a lot of dust and trigger physical reactions for people with asthma or allergies. By decluttering the space, you reduce the risk of illness by preventing dust, mould and mildew.

Improve lifestyle and wellbeing

Each of the above benefits contributes to a better lifestyle and wellbeing. Decluttering can decrease the amount of housework needed, reduce stress levels, improve communication between family members or friends, and lower risks of illness by preventing dust.

When decluttering your home, you have the option to keep, store, donate or throw out your extra belongings. Certain items, such as seasonal clothing, sentimental items and extra furniture can be kept in self storage until you next need to use them.

A Quick and Easy Process

Quick and easy to reserve and simple sign up process when I arrived. I had under estimated my load size and needed more space which the guys on site quickly arranged for me. Very helpful and friendly staff. A recommended company

Same Day Move In

Fantastic experience. Needed storage quickly and the staff were on hand to help get everything sorted as fast as possible – was in the same day. They even helped to make sure I got the right size unit so I didn’t over pay – they could have sold me a far bigger one but wanted to make sure I got the best deal and was happy – that doesn’t happen very often! Well Done!

Extremely Helpful Staff

Extremely helpful staff, talked me through everything, gave me a tour of the facility, the sign up process was very straight forward, and most important excellent value for money.

Trolleys and Good Lighting

Great storage with lots of trolleys and good lighting. Lots of parking bays so it is easy to park close to the storage unit entrance. A friendly and helpful team (Anthony and Nick) that get back to you quickly by email or phone.

Business Self Storage

Can’t praise the guys enough, Tricia initially found me a unit over year ago and patiently kept me up to date on availability as I was unable to move my business as quickly as I’d hoped. All the staff are friendly and helpful. A safe and clean place to work.
