Mental health is affected by our spaces and environment. Decluttering is a powerful tool for improving mental health and cultivating a sense of well-being.

As winter descends on us, we tend to retreat to the warmth and comfort of home. If our spaces are cluttered, we’re not able to relax and mentally “turn off” as we need. Mental health is complex (Below we have resources you can reach out for mental health support) and decluttering is a tool that can help you, especially in winter!

A cluttered environment can trigger feelings of stress and anxiety, making it difficult to relax and unwind. This is especially true in a bedroom.
By decluttering our surroundings, we create a sense of order and tranquility, which can help lower stress and provide us with a sense of calm.

In a cluttered space we can be easily distracted. This makes it hard to stay focused on tasks. Even if that task is as important as taking time out to relax.
By removing unnecessary items and creating a less cluttered environment, we can improve our ability to focus. With improved focus, we will have improved productivity. Productive relaxation is definitely a winter winner!

Our spaces, homes and possessions often carry emotional weight. Emotional weight can come with lots of clutter or a few pieces that evoke strong negative emotions.
After working with clients we often hear “I feel so much lighter” This brings a smile to our faces because emotional wellbeing is as important as physical wellbeing and decluttering plays a role in both.

Lets turn winter into a time for relaxation and renewal. By making our homes supportive spaces this winter for our mental health, we are setting ourselves up for relaxation success.
