An Organized Home Improves Your Concentration //

Maybe you have noticed how difficult it is to concentrate on your tasks while in a cluttered environment. When living in a home where clutter rules, you often find yourself distracted by all the items around you, first of all, because they are all out of place, and second – you are plagued by a sense of guilt because you've failed to complete your cleaning chores. According to the ancient Chinese feng shui philosophical system, clutter blocks the proper flow of energy in your home. It also drains you from your own energy, leaving you unmotivated, irritable and emotionally exhausted. Organize and clean your home regularly and you will soon experience the benefits of your improved concentration.

Unexpected Guests will Hardly Be a Problem //

Of course, sending them away without inviting them is hardly an option, so letting them in your cluttered home seems to be your only alternative. Cleaning and organising your home on a regular basis will spare you the embarrassment and stress such “unpleasant” surprises might lead to.

You will Keep Pests at Bay //

Let's face it – grime, dust, and food residue are practically an invitation to a variety of pests from cockroaches to ants and bed bugs. Each time you skip on your cleaning routine, you're practically saying to the aforementioned pests “Welcome home, guys!”. The solution to this problem is simple - never leave plates with unfinished meals on the table in the living room and empty your trash can regularly.
