An Organized Closet Leads to a Healthy Life

We’ve had an untimely spring here on the East Coast that has caused many people to dig deep in their winter closets for their summer clothing. Although we’re enjoying the warm weather, we may not be enjoying the unkempt closet.

Maybe it’s time to reorganize your closet!

Organizing your closet can have many benefits. First, you will be able to find what you need in an instant—no more digging. In addition, there are a number of mental and physical health benefits as well. Here are some of those benefits you may not have considered:

Clean Closet = Clean Mind

Living with clutter inhibits our creativity and our productivity. It can distract us from the things we need to focus on, or cause procrastination. According to professional organizer Regina Leeds, author of One Year to an Organized Life, “Clutter creates a ‘brain dance,’ and agitation and inability to think amidst the stuff. Clutter makes noise, keeping us upset and churned.” If you feel frenzied, try organizing your environment.

Lessen Emotional and Physical Stress

Messy spaces can take a toll on your physical and emotional health. Citing a Personality and Social Psychology Bulletin study, women were more likely to feel fatigued and depressed when they described their living spaces as “cluttered” or “full” than women who described their spaces as “restorative” and “restful.” They also indicated higher levels of the stress hormone cortisol.

You’ll Feel Better About Yourself

Don’t you feel your best when you look your best? When you clean out your closet, keep only the outfits that make you feel good and donate the rest. You’ll have fewer clothes to choose from, but you’ll find joy in every combination.

You’ll Save Time and Energy

Having fewer outfits to choose from allows you to make speedier selections and get dressed much more quickly in the morning’s rush. You know everything fits, is in good condition, and is still in style.

You’ll Reduce Allergens

Piles of clutter in a closed-off environment create a breeding ground for allergens, as well as dust, mold or mildew. Let your closet breathe by creating space.
