Can Tidying Up Improve Your Overall Health?

By Genevieve Cunningham

If you haven't heard someone talking about tidying up by now, it's time to catch up with the times. Tidying up is all the rage. It's as though we're finally starting to realize that a clean and orderly environment is better. But why is it better? Besides the fact that it significantly improves the appearance of our homes, why else should we worry so much about perfect cleanliness? As it turns out, it may be a good idea to tidy up for your health. If you're interested in sparking joy in your home with the newest tidying method, take a look at how your health may improve in the process.

The Tidying Up Craze

Tidying up has become a seriously hot craze, but what is it? Is it just cleaning your home, or is it more? Those who have embraced the trend know that it's not only about cleaning up your home and belongings, but it's also about how keeping things tidy makes you feel. It's about improving your life by eliminating junk. It's about living with a sense of calm. This craze was brought about by the book and subsequent series surrounding the tidying theory of Marie Kondo. As more people jump on this tidying craze, the potential benefits of living a tidy life are growing and being recognized as real and substantial.

How It Improves Health

So is it true that being tidy can make us healthier? Let's talk physical health first. Tidiness can help eliminate dust, germs, and even unwanted rodents that might hide in clutter. But the biggest health benefits are mental. Eliminating excess junk from your home or car or office significantly lowers stress. It helps you relax and maintain a greater sense of calm. Keeping a clean and tidy environment also helps you keep a clean and tidy mind, which means there's less moodiness and confusion. Research definitely suggests that a clean environment is more conducive to better mental and physical health, so tidying up may improve your life in more ways than one.

If you haven't started tidying up your home or life yet, maybe it's time to start. You'll never really know how good it could make you feel until you try it. Buy the book or plan some Netflix and chill to learn the method. Then set aside some time, tidy your home, and bring some big mental and physical health benefits into your life as a result.
