What to do for those winter blues? Winter affects us in unique ways. For some, winter doesn’t negatively impact their day to day life, but for others it can bring on blue, blue feelings. And one way to boost spirits and garner feelings of fulfilment is to declutter and clean your home.
A cluttered home that needs to be clean can bring down anyone’s spirits in the best of times, but in winter, it might just be another thing adding to the gloom of the season. A living space that needs cleaning can make us feel uneasy and anxious—what if visitors drop by unexpectedly? It is the holiday season after all. Clutter can overload our senses, making it harder for us to concentrate or be productive. It can feel overwhelming since it’s another item on the never-ending Christmas “to-do” list.
The solution is to create a clean, decluttered environment and home to ward off winter blues. If our homes become a cosy haven, winter blues don’t stand a chance. There are two ways to go about this: cleaning yourself or hiring outside help.
Tips for Cleaning Your Home in the Winter Season
For some of us, cleaning our own spaces can be a mental decluttering as well as tangible. The feeling of productivity, finishing multiple tasks, and using one’s own hands to achieve a goal can be rewarding. If you find you’re one of those people, cleaning and organising might be one of the best ways for you to ward off those winter blues!
Different things you can include in your winter cleaning spree include: decluttering spaces that haven’t been organised for quite a while. Tidy up storage spaces such as closets, cupboards, and drawers full of clothes. Deep clean spaces in the living room, kitchen, and bathrooms that might not get a regular deep clean.
