Packed Room With a Lot of Clutter

Psychology of Spring Cleaning: Why It’s So Satisfying!

Spring cleaning and moving have a lot of similarities. You’re getting rid of the old and starting something new. Both activities involve a lot of organizing and cleaning. They’re both big projects that don’t happen very often or overnight. Spring cleaning and moving go hand-in-hand because you might deep clean and declutter your home.  

You already know the physical benefits of spring cleaning because you get exercise, clean out the dust, mold, and gunk, and help make your space more livable. We’re going to take this one step further. 

Discover the emotional benefits of spring cleaning and how it can have a positive impact on your mental well-being.

1. Reduces Stress & Anxiety

Clutter has plenty of negative effects on your mind. You might feel a sense of constant struggle to complete daily tasks. Children may find clutter frustrating as they see it as something disorganized and out of place because kids love routines. Clutter is the antithesis of routine.

Spring cleaning can create a calm and organized environment. The key is to get rid of clutter and unnecessary items.

2. Increased Productivity

Misplaced your favorite skillet again? Have your kids turned half the garage into a play fort filled with boxes, plastic bins, and stuff you collected 20 years ago? Has your granny’s antique plate collection gone missing? Perhaps it’s time for a spring cleaning refresh!

Spring cleaning can help to increase productivity by creating a more efficient and organized living space. When everything has a designated place, it’s easier to find what you need and get things done.

If you need more space, consider a storage unit. We know a good moving company that can help you move stuff to storage.

3. Improved Mental Clarity & Creativity

You may have seen the sign on your supervisor’s desk that says “A clean desk is the sign of a sick mind.” Ignore that. Over time, your mind turns into what you see. If you see clutter, your mind will become cluttered.

Get your head space away from clutter and into clarity. Spring cleaning is the perfect remedy for doldrums, and not just because you had a chilly winter. You might also see a spark of creativity when you get rid of the physical clutter in your home. Something you see might trigger a memory, a quote, or a line from a book that sparks your imagination!

4. Sense of Accomplishment

Everyone loves to reach a goal! Spring cleaning gives you a sense of accomplishment when you take pride in a job well done. It’s a tangible way to see the results of your hard work and dedication, which can be a great mood booster. Don’t forget to reward yourself after you finish spring cleaning. Go out to eat, binge watch your favorite show, or spend more time with your family!

Get your blood pumping! Increased heart rate improves blood flow to your brain (that’s probably why our moving guys are so efficient), which improves your thought processes. 

5. Out of Sight, Out of Mind

You’ve heard of out of sight, out of mind. While we don’t recommend that for all of life’s problems, we actually do when you have too much clutter in your home. Spring clean your stuff and free up some space for what you really want to do.  Need an extra room for a home gym? What about a recording studio or art studio? How about a new nursery for your expanding family?

Clear out the clutter from that unused room and move stuff to storage. We can help with that!
