Studies show that the average American spends the most time in their bedroom, at a whopping 6.8 hours per day, 2,482 hours per year. If you spend the most time in your bedroom, when compared to other spaces of your home, it is even more important to keep your bedroom clean in 2023. Check out these seven benefits of keeping your personal space clean, highlighted by Sponge and Sparkle!
Heighten your sleep.
You are bound to sleep longer and better in a room that is clean and clutter free. Let us explain. If you have clothes, shoes, and other items lying around, it can be hard to fall asleep even when you are already laying in bed. You may feel anxious looking at all and even be unable to shut your eyes. Such messes cause chaos and discomfort rather than the calm and relaxing environment you need to fall asleep.
A simple daily habit like keeping your bedroom clean can do wonders for helping you get a good night’s rest. Not only does being more organized help us feel more prepared and confident in our day-to-day lives, but it can also have an immediate impact on our health and happiness levels (and thus, our overall ability to cope with stress). Take ten minutes throughout the day to make your bed, hang up any clothes, and clean your space. This will allow you to come back home or just upstairs to a clean bedroom where you can enjoy your sleep!
Declutter and destress.
A clean bedroom not only makes it easier to fall asleep but also relieves stress throughout your day. Make a pile of unnecessary objects. Be on the lookout for things that you have not used in the past month or two. Chances are that you will not use them anytime soon.
Any clothes that do not fit or are no longer your style, as well as decorations and other household items can be donated to local charities. If you have extra time on your hands, you can also resell the items on online platforms. After taking pictures, writing descriptions, and posting listings to Facebook Marketplace, Mercari, Poshmark, or something similar, you may be able to make some extra cash from your clutter.
Then, organize what you use often and consider a bedside table that stores what you need at night. When we have peace in our personal space we tend to be more productive throughout our day. It’s important for us to take care of ourselves so we can do our best in all areas of life.
A clean bedroom to boost productivity is especially relevant if you are studying or working from home. This may not seem like a big deal, but when your bedroom’s a mess and you’re tired from working all day, trying to get anything done can feel like an impossible task.
By keeping your bedroom tidy, you’ll have more energy throughout your day. You may even be more motivated to get out of bed early in the morning. Of course, you will be able to find exactly what you need without rummaging and also have increased concentration and creativity levels due to the pleasant atmosphere of cleanliness. This will make it easier for you to get things done!
Save time and money.
Who doesn’t want to save time and money? With a clean bedroom, you will be able to find small but important items like your wallet or keys in the morning or whenever you need them. This will help you make it to work or wherever you need to be on time. It will also help you get there in a more positive mood by alleviating inconveniences and feeling rushed.
Finally, keeping your bedroom neat and organized will help save you money because you won’t have to replace items as often. By not losing your ear buds, hair brush, your favorite pair of jeans, and so on, you will avoid buying replacements.
Prevent illnesses and improve health.
Saving time and money is important for everyone’s quality of life. But, preventing illness might be even more beneficial for some. Dust and dirt buildup can result in everything from the odd sneezing fit to the scary experience of an asthma attack. Needless to say, you would rather not have either of those. On a subtler note, your bedroom is also a space where germs spread easily–especially if you share it with others in your home. By keeping your bedroom clean, you can prevent germs from contaminating your home. It takes less time to be healthy if the family can cooperate and clean their rooms every few days.
A clean room is welcoming for not only you, but also others. If you have friends or loved ones over, you want your room to be nice, simple, and cozy. This applies to the guest bedroom and other living spaces as well. It is not very inviting if you visit someone and it looks like there is dust and hair all over the carpet, and junk lying around. Of course, the room can look lived in, but there is a fine line. Maintain cleanliness to ensure your room is warm and welcoming for guests.
Set the tone for the day!
With a clean bedroom and better sleep, you are bound to wake up on the right side of the bed! The way you start your day really does set the tone. Make your bed as soon as you wake up. Put things back where they belong while you are getting ready. And follow other tips and tricks to make your life more convenient!
