Tidy house, tidy mind

Next time you need motivation to clean the house, think of the wonderful wellbeing benefits a sparkling clean home could deliver.

Vim believes that beautiful homes and beautiful places make us all happier. Here’s a guide on how you can make your home clean and enjoyable and improve your headspace at the same time.

Tidy house, tidy mind. It’s a phrase we all know well, but what’s the deeper meaning behind it? Research shows that having a neat, well-organised, and sparkling clean home can play an important role in mental health and general wellbeing.

Clean house, clean mind

How can cleaning your home make you feel more positive? There is a powerful psychology behind cleanliness which suggests clutter and mess has a direct impact on your mood.

An untidy home can subconsciously affect our wellbeing and make us sad. Let cleaning bring a smile to your face. Cleaning your house alleviates the stress associated with an untidy home, plus the physical act of cleaning works up a sweat and releases feel-good endorphins!

Restore your home and yourself to their beautiful best with these easy steps:

Step 1 – Tidy up

First things first: have a clear out. Declutter by recycling, selling, or donating unneeded items, and then organise everything using smart storage solutions. Here’s how:

  • If you’re daunted by the task ahead, start small, for example with your desk. Tidy desk, tidy mind: clearing surfaces and arranging drawers will boost your productivity, as you will be focused on the task at hand rather than distracted by clutter.

  • Go through your wardrobe, kitchen drawers, and filing cabinets, removing any clothes, items or papers you no longer need. Organize files with labels or sort your wardrobe by colour or season.

  • Look into storage solutions such as kitchen baskets and floating shelves that could clear floor space. This not only keeps your home tidy, but also makes cleaning much easier.

Free yourself from clutter and feel calm, collected and more motivated to pull on those rubber gloves for the next stage!

Step 2 – Deep clean

Once you’ve tidied, it’s time to dust, scrub and polish until your home is beautiful again! This is a great opportunity to get into all those little nooks and crannies and make them shine. You could also tackle the microwave, oven, washing machine, and other appliances that may need attention.
