How Spring Cleaning Improves Your Life


It’s that time of year again when you may be revamping your home: cleaning, purging, and organizing your space. In addition to an improved living environment, you may experience some added benefits to your life.  Here’s 3 positive things you might expect:

  1. Emotions uplifted – As you get rid of physical clutter, tidy up, and re-organize, you start to feel a sense of ease. You feel a sense of weight being lifted as you let go of things that no longer serve you and physical objects attached to negative emotions from your past.  You feel a sense of joy as you surround yourself in an environment you find pleasing, functional, and pleasant. You feel happier.
  2. Mental clarity – Spring cleaning keeps you mindful of the present.  As your physical surroundings become more organized, your thoughts also become more organized. You’re less stressed with less clutter to worry about. Less distraction also leads to improved concentration. You become more focused. You’re more productive. Positive thoughts come naturally.  Creativity begins to flow.  You come up with new ideas. Your mind feels a sense of calmness and peace.
  3. Self-esteem – There’s a feeling of satisfaction that comes from a job well done. You feel better about yourself and your ability to accomplish great things. You feel a sense of achievement when you’ve tackled something you had been avoiding.  You decided what you wanted and needed now. You feel in charge of your life and how you desire to live it.

There’s a Tanzanian proverb that says, “Little by little, a little becomes a lot.”  By simply starting to discard a few items, re-purpose some old things, or sort through a small space, spring cleaning can lead to positive changes.  As you build momentum, you might want to challenge yourself even more. It begins with you and a single action that you can do today.
