Published in 4.30.2020
These sure are crazy times we’re living through with COVID-19, social distancing, and the need for everyone to stay at home. While many things right now may feel out of your control, one thing you can take control of is your home organization.
And the good news is that getting your home organized can make you both healthier and happier - which is something we all could use right now.
Here at Modular Closets, we put together this list of three major benefits to home organization. Hopefully this is just the inspiration you need to make use of this time at home to finally get organized:
1. Reduce Stress & Anxiety
Home across the United States are filled with clutter.
In fact, clutter is so pervasive that many homeowners claim to avoid going home so they don’t have to encounter the mess. It’s common to hear people say they don’t even know where to start when it comes to cleaning. shows, all this clutter is taking a toll on our lives.
Unfortunately, with COVID-19, we no longer have a choice and need to stay home.
However, by taking advantage of this time to finally clean up and get organized, you can significantly reduce stress and anxiety. And that’s good news for your immune system during this pandemic.
One way that home organization reduces stress is by creating a designated place for all your belongings, so you always know exactly where something is when you need it. This will help you save time, as you’re not scrambling at the last minute looking for lost items, and maybe even money, if you’ve ever lost urgent financial documents amid a mess.
Overall, an organized home creates a sense of space and calm, so that your surroundings feel like a sanctuary, instead of a chore that needs to be done. And couldn’t we all use a sanctuary right now!
2. Spend Some Quality Family Time
Getting your house clean and organized means you get to spend more quality time with your family.
This is true in two important ways:
Build Good Habits Together – Home organization is a task for the whole family to share. In fact, the only way home organization really works is when each family members know what’s expected of them. This is a great opportunity to teach your children life-long good habits.
Relax Together – Best of all, once you finally get your home organized, you have a beautiful space you can all enjoy together. Your home will feel like a true haven where the whole family can gather together and relax.
3. Get Prepared for Whatever Is Next
The unexpected global shutdown caused by COVID-19 has certainly thrown us all a curveball. Our days are filled with uncertainty, as no one can know what will come next.
However, when you get your home life in order, it lessens the impact of the unexpected.
Not only will you strengthen your sense of control by actually taking control over something that you can, you also gain the ability to get prepared for multiple possibilities. An organized home is primed for adaptation. If your home needs to function as an office, a school, a restaurant, and/or an entertainment center for the next 1, 3, 6, or 12 months – you can be ready.
