Today’s Solutions: January 26, 2022

Even if you have little motivation to clean up the space around you, there is every reason to make your environment, both at home and at work, as tidy as possible. Why? Based on a wealth of research, there are four key benefits that come with keeping a clean environment. Let’s check them out.

First benefit: an infection-free life. Unarguably, germs and other harmful microorganisms thrive in filth. And infections go hand in hand with germs and their kin. But once your environment is clean, washed, disinfected and sanitized, you’re sure of infection-free living space. Just make sure you use cleaning products with zero toxic residues.

Second benefit: increased self-confidence. Satisfaction with your environment automatically boosts self-confidence—and helps to improve depression and anxiety. With a clean environment, you’ll find yourself in the right frame of mind to take on the day.

Third benefit: higher productivity. When your environment is clean, neat and nice, it turns you into a happier person. And as it turns out, happy people tend to be super productive people.

Fourth benefit: you will gain a sense of propriety. A clean environment makes it difficult for people to just leave things lying about or drop litters. This is not about you alone. A clean environment is contagious, influencing everyone around you. It also impacts your behavior and gives you the impetus to act on keeping it clean. Because of this, you end up managing your space better than you can imagine.
