A clean bedroom makes you happier.

If you’ve been in a bit of a funk lately, look no further than your bedroom.

If it’s a mess (no judgement, I’ve also left plates and water glasses on my nightstand for days), you should really clean it up.

According to a study published in the Personality and Social Psychology Bulletinwomen who described their homes as cluttered and full of unfinished projects were also depressed, tired and more stressed out than those who described their homes as restorative and restful.

On top of that, a clean room helps you sleep better. And getting enough rest is crucial to your happiness.

So while cleaning your room may feel like a huge task, your happiness is pretty damn important. Make it happen!

If your room is clean, you’re more likely to exercise.

A 2013 study kept track of the health of nearly 1,000 people between the ages of 49 and 65. The result? People with the cleanest houses were also the most likely to exercise.

This is probably because people who keep their homes clean are more organized, and organized people are better at fitting in exercise.

Statistics provide scientific proof that the mental and health benefits of a clean environment are very real; but, we also look to the renewed energy and happiness our clients describe to us after one of our visits. When we hear our clients use words such as “therapeutic,” “relaxing,” and “motivating” to describe their newly cleaned homes and offices we are reminded that a clean home is truly the embodiment of the science and soul holistic cleaning philosophy we maintain at Harvest Cleaners.
