Mental Health, Psychology, Psychiatry, Depression

If you noticed that you are quite stressed or irritated every day even you are just at home, try to look at your surrounding because it might contribute to factors that trigger stress. Look around your house and ask yourself this question “is your house neat and pleasant to your eyes?” if your answer is yes, then good for your but if you are having second thoughts of answering yes, then think for a second because there might be a problem. You may want to de-clutter and clean your house too often because study shows that neat house is linked to happier you. You can either do the cleaning itself or you can hire maid in San Diego to do it for you, as long as it will help you distress.

If you find cleaning relaxing then you should do it more often. If you think that you already have too much stuff at your home at it might trigger the stress then you should consider de-cluttering. Buying less stuff is the common way to cut back on clutter and enjoy a cleaner, tidier home, but what else can you do to ensure you don’t drown into an ever-growing pile of stuff? Well, you could start by spending money on experiences or travels  rather than things – living with less and experiencing more is definitely more satisfying, so instead of buying a new pair of shoes, for example, you ca enjoy more time at the gym or see a film at the cinema with your family and friends.

You must always remember that cleaning does not only improve the appearance of your house, it also boosts your mental health. There is a study by the British Journal of Sports Medicine that shows that carrying out 20 minutes of physical activity a week can make a great impact on depression. With this, why not choose cleaning as an activity. Cleaning can be an outlet for energy and negative emotions too. Removing dust, dirt and clutter from your environment provides you with a cleaner, more comfortable atmosphere so you can feel happierand more relaxed. You’re more likely to be able to unwind if you feel like your cleaning ‘to-do’ list has been ticked off.
