How A Clean Space Can Help Promote Positive Mental Health
Happy Mental Health Awareness Month, a month that is dedicated to promoting positive mental health across the UK every May. At EverKleen, we take mental health very seriously, and wanted to share some reasons why a clean space is a happy space, and how cleanliness can promote positive mental health for all.
Clutter, mess, dust and the feeling of general untidiness and uncleanness could be damaging to our mental health. As humans, we naturally enjoy order and expect the places we live in, work in and socialise in to have a certain standard of cleanliness. This cleanliness, order and structure, allows us to relax and unwind in the environment we choose to be in, promoting positive mental health.
A mental health website, Very Well Mind, found that when people feel like their life is out of control or they are struggling with some uncertainties, cleaning can be a way to assert some control in their life and cleaning gives people a sense of control over their environment.
A study by the University of Connecticut in America, found that in times of high stress, people default to repetitive behaviours like cleaning because it gives them a sense of control during a chaotic time. What's more, clutter and disorganisation can be really distracting and make it hard to focus or complete other projects. So, if you're feeling an urge to clean and declutter when you're stressed, your mind and body is probably looking for a way to bring some order to your environment. And this is where EverKleen can help!
