It’s Sabbath Sunday! This is the day to rest so you can be recharged for the week.
After a fun-filled year I am cleaning up and going through the studio. It’s what I do every year around the same time. I take inventory, figure out changes, and start planning for the new year.
So as I started cleaning I wondered why I do this. I mean obviously it needs to get done. But I started asking why I do it. Why does it make me feel better? Why is it part of my routine? Just why?
In order to answer this why I figured I should google it. And sure enough there is an article talking about how cleaning and mental health are connected. Here are some key points I took away.
- Clutter leads to distraction and decreased focus.
- A clean home usually signals good health.
- A clean home usually means I have control of my possessions and my mental well-being.
Here are some tips on how to get cleaning.
- Start small.
- Set a timer.
- Ask for help.
