Cleanliness is next to Happiness

3 Impacts of cleanliness on your mental and physical well-being

Keeping Home clean & well-organized is good for your health, and science can prove it.

A study led by associate professor Nicole R. Keith, Ph.D., research scientist and professor at Indiana University, found that people with clean houses are healthier than people with messy houses. Keith and her colleagues tracked the physical health of 998 African Americans between the ages of 49 and 65, a demographic known to be at an increased risk for heart disease. Participants who kept their homes clean were healthier and more active than those who didn’t.

Lowers Stress and Depression

A 2010 study published in the scientific journal “Personality and Social Psychology Bulletin” used linguistic analysis software to measure the way 60 individuals discussed their homes.
Women who described their living spaces as “cluttered” or full of “unfinished projects” were more likely to be depressed and fatigued than women who described their homes as “restful” and “restorative.” The researchers also found that women with cluttered homes expressed higher levels of the stress hormone cortisol. This, in turn, can effect your sleep patterns, health, overall mood and even fertility.
Always ensure that you are in a clean & organized environment after a long & hard day at work.

Enhances your Relationships

The more time you have for yourself, the easier it is to refresh your relationships. You will be in a position to spend quality time with your family & friends. After all positive relationships are the key to a happy life.

Improves Productivity

In 2011, researchers at Princeton University found that clutter can actually make it more difficult to focus on a particular task. Specifically, they found that the visual cortex can be overwhelmed by task-irrelevant objects, making it harder to allocate attention and complete tasks efficiently.
As aforesaid, living in a clean and organized environment rejuvenates relationships and reduces stress, which obviously results in better productivity in your work life.

So Cleanliness is not only next to Godliness. But also, next to Happiness.
