Tidying up can help you de-stress, gain a sense of control, and improve your state of mind in numerous ways. The process (and results) of putting things in their place can improve your mood and state of mind. If it puts you at ease, it can be an important part of self-care.
Decluttering (the process of putting the miscellaneous physical things around you away where they belong) not only makes it easier to find what you’re looking for, it can also improve your mood and state of mind in myriad ways.
Clutter affects our emotional and physical well-being in numerous ways. Clutter in the office can make us less productive and more burnt out. Clutter at home may lower happiness and make us feel less secure.
Clutter can also be a safety hazard if there are items or wires on the floor that someone can trip over, or a health hazard if your piles of stuff have become magnets for dust or bugs.
