3 important reasons you should organize your home

Who knew this one thing could make you happier with yourself and with your family?
  • Your home (whether it's small or large, an apartment or a single room) is the place where you spend the most intimate moments of your life. You laugh, cry, embrace, kiss, talk and love here, knowing you are perfectly comfortable and safe in your home. The home is the space where family, marital, personal, professional and spiritual aspects of a person are strengthened.

  • Don't you want to make your home the best place it can possibly be? You can do that by making your space a place that's comfortable, restful and generally happy. Your home should be the place where you can your family can escape the daily burdens of life. If you let it, your home is a little piece of heaven on earth. However, none of this can happen if you don't keep your home organized and clean.

  • Here are three important reasons why you should keep your house organized and filled with dedication and love:

  • 1. Decor and organization can influence your mood

  • The way your furniture is situated, the color and texture of the walls, the aroma of the rooms, the paintings, floors and everything else in your house impacts how you feel in your space. If your house is orderly, clean, well-lit and has good airflow, you'll feel energized and happy the minute you walk through the door.

  • If your home is dirty, messy, dimly lit and stinks of unpleasant smells, you'll feel frustrated, annoyed and generally happy in your space. The way your home feels directly affects how your whole family functions.

  • 2. Organization brings concentration and inspiration

  • Everyone needs to concentrate and get work in their home. Sometimes people need inspiration for ideas in their kitchen or need to make important decisions in the living room. Some even work from home and need a designated office space to create. Unfortunately, those things can't happen in a disorderly home.

  • Trying to concentrate and be inspired in a messy home is like trying to memorize a poem with loud music, crying children and someone else shouting directions at you in the background. To create the best space possible, make sure the walls in your home are neutral colors, the floors are free of clutter and the rooms are well-lit to ensure optimal concentration and inspiration.

  • 3. Happy families are made in harmonious and orderly homes

  • If your main goal in life is to have a happy family, start with your home. You must strive to make your home a safe, fun, relaxing and loving place where everyone can feel comfortable spending time in. Help create a space where you children (no matter how old they are) can come home to and feel loved and safe.

  • Finally, remember that you don't have to have a huge, fancy house to have a happy home. Having a home that reflects the beautiful and wonderful family God has blessed you with is the most priceless gift you could ask for.
