tidy home

Cleaning and organizing can be an extremely undesirable task. It takes so much time and energy, and the worst part is it’s never ending. Most people find it hard to get themselves motivated to keep their home tidy. Do you?

What if I told you that I could make you actually WANT to keep a tidy home? Yes, that’s right, you would look forward to cleaning and organizing your home and yard! Taking pride in a tidy home is fulfilling, and their are several other benefits as well.

1. Less stress.  One reason to keep a tidy home is that you will feel less stress in your life.  Although you may not think that a messy home makes you stressed, it does subconsciously. Having a tidy yard can also help relieve even more stress, giving you an area to retreat to and relax in.

2. Be more productive. If you have a tidy home, you can focus clearly on your tasks and be more productive.  Contrastingly, a messy home turns your attention to the clutter, making it hard to focus on your tasks at hand.  You waste valuable time, which no one appreciates.

3. Be healthier. A cleaner home will result in a healthier living style. People that maintain clean homes aren’t exposed to as many germs and air-born particles, and therefore get sick less often.

4. Have more free time. If you maintain a tidy home on a regular basis, it actually saves you time cleaning and tidying. You will spend much more time cleaning only once a week than you would if you spend 15 minutes a day maintaining your tidy home.  This will give you a substantial amount of free time each week to do as you please. What would you do with more time?

These are only a few of the many benefits that you will find by maintaining a tidy home. But the most important benefit to maintaining a tidy home is a sense of pride! It feels good to come into a clean, organized home, and even better when you are able to bring guests over without worrying how clean your home is. If this sounds sketchy to you still, give it a try! Keep your home clean and tidy for one week, and see if you notice a difference in your mood, productivity or amount of free time.  You will be amazed at the results!
