Here's why organising your home will make you happier

A recent article in the New York Times examined various studies related to home clutter and mental well-being, with the major theme that more disorganised homes correlated with higher levels of stress.

Basically, the more disorganised your home is, the more the level of cortisol in your body is increasing. And what is cortisol? It is you body’s main stress hormone.

Of course, the continuous ritual of putting things away and organising is not anyone’s idea of fun time. However, as tedious as the chore of organising a house can be, it is something that can be outsourced, and it is extremely important to maintaining both mental and physical health. And once your house is properly organised, styled and decorated, it is much easier to implement good habits to avoid getting back into any sort of chaos.
