There is something about walking into a hotel bedroom, being welcomed by a fresh and clutter-free space. Which poses the question: does the state of a space really have an impact on the way we feel? Is there such a thing as the psychology of cleanliness? The answer is yes, and there are many studies correlating the link between cleanliness and psychological health.

Your home is your haven. If your house is cluttered, your mind feels the same. Ask yourself: would you feel comfortable if guests showed up at your house now? If not, then it shouldn’t be acceptable for you to live in it. You are just as important as anyone else, which is why you should treat yourself to a clean environment.

A study found that people who make their beds every morning are 19% more likely to report getting a good night’s sleep, and the majority of those said it is even better when their sheets are freshly clean as this increased the sleepers’ feelings of comfort. This is probably the easiest habit to incorporate into your routine. Make your bed first thing in the morning and your bedroom will instantly look better, which will have a calming effect on your mind too.
