Why Decluttering is Important For Your Health

Jul 13, 2022

Decluttering your home isn’t just a great way to open up space. It also has a tremendous amount of health benefits.

For one it alleviates anxiety and can prevent depression. We have all seen the show Hoarders and the mental state those individuals are in. This can happen to all of us when you find that you can’t find a place to store something and it ends up just lying around and more likely becoming clutter.

Seeing this clutter on a regular basis can produce high levels of the stress hormone cortisol, and in turn causes anxiety and depression. That tells you if something can’t find a home when you aren’t using it, it most likely isn’t important to keep and should be tossed.

By decluttering your home will also lessen allergens in the home. That’s because as junk begins to accumulate it could lead to extra dust and potentially even mold. If you have a pet that sheds, there are now more things that can attach to the hair. By decluttering leaves less of a chance of mold and fungi from accumulating which can lead to better indoor ventilation.

By tossing out your junk, also helps you be more mobile in your home as now you can move from point a to point b easily which is always a positive health benefit.

Sometimes it is hard to discard things but in the long-run it could be for the better.
