What should we do when the winter blues come? Winter can impact us emotionally in unique ways. Winter might not affect us all in a negative way, but it can be known to bring on the winter blues. One creative way to boost one’s spirits and be rid of the winter blues is to declutter and clean the house!
In the best of times, a cluttered home can be discouraging; but in winter, it might be just one more thing that adds to the gloom of winter. If our living spaces need to be cleaned, it might make us feel more uneasy and anxious than normal. 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.
