How cleanliness affects your mental wellbeing in the office

Why do we find ourselves drawn to before and afters of dirty to clean when we think of office wellbeing? While there has been leading research that has connected clutter to levels of stress and anxiety, it has also shown that cleaning up messes can have a positive impact on your mental wellbeing. Keeping clean and tidy in the office can help you focus and relax in your work environment. Don’t believe us? Here’s some more information…

The science behind the cleaning

Over the years, mental wellbeing has been taken much more seriously than it once was. As such, it has been the centre focus of numerous studies. As time has passed, there has been a link drawn between cleanliness, organisation and improved mental wellbeing. Many studies have shown this, so it should go without saying that cleaning and decluttering your desk will help relieve any build-up of stress and achieve office wellbeing. Another study revealed the link between peripheral mess and the activity levels of an individual, showing that those who are cleanest are actually the most active.

The removal of harmful germs and pathogens is another way in which cleaning can physically benefit your mental health. On any given day, the air quality inside your office is far more polluted when compared to the air outside. As such, it makes sense to keep your work environment as clean as possible. The cleaner it is, the lower the chances of you falling ill.
