Ever since I was a kid, I was constantly told me: “Cleaning your room is important”. Back then, my parents used to tell me that I should do it because I am a girl. Yeah… that didn’t really help me and, if anything, it made me not want to clean my room. Way to fight the patriarchy, am I right?
Don’t be me from the past. I have three reasons why cleaning your room is actually very good. And it has nothing to do with your gender.
Have you ever had a long day that drained you? Most of us have those, especially nowadays, when the world in general seems like it’s out to get you. It must be tempting to just slid under the covers and forget it.
However, instead of mindlessly scrolling through social media, why don’t you put on a playlist and start cleaning your room up a little? Even if you don’t necessarily do a whole lot, even dusting or just vacuuming might make you feel better and a bit more energized.
It will put you in a better headspace
How many times have you heard that creative minds tend to be disorganized? Probably a dozen times by now. By all means, some people thrive in untidiness, but this isn’t the case for others.
Seeing your room clean will actually motivate you to either be productive or at least take a day completely off. And you won’t constantly feel as if you need to do something, such as doing the laundry or organizing your books!
It will give you space to engage in hobbies
Before starting to clean my room, I used to put off doing things I enjoy. Yoga? The floor is dirty. Painting? I don’t have space on my desk. Reading? Well, where are my books?
You see the issue. Being so disorganized made me not even want to do the things I love, and probably you’ve been going through something like this as well. Don’t worry, we’ve all been there. Once you finish cleaning your room, you might find that you have the energy to try those knitting patterns you always wanted to give a shot, or to start doing some yoga! Now you most likely have the energy and the space for it, since there aren’t obstacles in your way.
