According to Joseph Addison ‘Cleanliness may be defined to be the emblem of purity of mind’. But there could be a greater incentive for being clean and uncluttered, because all the evidence points to cleanliness being good for mental health.
The Psychology of Cleanliness
Studies have found a direct correlation between the wellbeing of workers and the effects on productivity. This is because being clean in either the home or workplace will encourage clarity and a more organised state of mind.
Evidence suggests that messiness causes a difficulty to focus and achieve. Being messy and unclean can make you feel unsettled and less able to process information. It also supports the theory that those surrounded by clutter or unfinished projects were more likely to be depressed or low. In contrast, those with good mental wellbeing were generally surrounded by uncluttered calm and serenity!
Any reluctance to clean up may be based on time and effort. Human instinct is to deviate from doing things we don’t enjoy and focus on those we do. We get accustomed to the way things are, knowing things should change but never really making cleaning and tidying up a priority! It’s perceived to be time consuming, boring and just too much effort!
But whatever the size of your workplace, like your home, it has to be cleaned. For those who have a significantly sized business premises the organisation of this can be a real headache.
