You step into your room and your bed has huge piles of your clothes spread everywhere, your table groans under books, newspapers, cups, and every kind of stuff, and your wardrobe looks like a spoiled outlet store post-Black Friday. If that’s a familiar scenario for you, then you are living in a space that interrupts your productivity in life.
Even if you are aware of it or not, the physical space in which you live and spend a lot of your time has a crucial role to play in how it increases or decreases your productivity. Your room is the place where you start and end your day and the most important part of your room is your wardrobe.
Having a wardrobe in a messed state can have a variety of effects on your life. Our mind cannot live completely independent of our environment, hence, keeping the wardrobe tidy, organized, and clean is significant. A room with a tidied up wardrobe and pile-free floor will not just bring happiness and organization to your life, but will also increase your productivity.
Here are five reasons that can spark the desire in you for tidying your wardrobe that will result in increasing your productivity while studying abroad.
- Know the resources you have
Do you find yourself looking everywhere for your matching bracelet or clothes while going to a party with friends? Does it happen that you buy a pair of pants, only to find out later that you had a better one to match the shirt you were wearing to the ceremony? Keeping a tidy closet will let you know what things you have like the shoes, clothes, jewelry, books, magazines, and stationery that are among your belongings so that you don’t have to search for them everywhere or go and buy new stuff when you already have better alternatives.
- A clear mind
A tidied up wardrobe also tidies up your mind. It is suggested by psychologists that a messy room and a messy wardrobe in it is a representation of a disorganized mental state. When one is tidy and organized it also builds into their life, helping them in everything. From the moment you start tidying, you will be forced to reset your life. As a result, your life will start to change. So, if you want to bring a positive transformation to your life, go ahead with cleaning and organizing your space and start a tidying marathon.
- A tidy closet can save you time
Tidying your wardrobe and organizing your space not only lets you know about the stuff that you have, but it can also save you a lot of time since you will know where to find something when you need it. Now, when you wake up early in the morning, you don’t have to search as the minute’s tick by for your special pair of shoes, your watch, or the dress that you wanted to wear. The start of your day will be a smooth one instead, and you will be able to make it out of the door to your college on time.
- Social Impact
I’m sure you would not want your friend to see your messy wardrobe. You would be too embarrassed if someone came over and got to look at the wardrobe in a messy state. When you are uncomfortable with the state of your room, it is less likely that you invite anyone over. On the other hand, when your house is clean, you are ready for company and are also more likely to invite or welcome someone over on the spur of the moment. Tidying your wardrobe helps in preventing the creation of a boundary around you, hence, you will become more social.
- Improvement in health
Tidying your room as well as your wardrobe can also bring with itself some health benefits. When your room becomes a peaceful and ordered place with no clutter around, you will feel less stressed and less distracted. This means you can spend some relaxing time before bed and go to sleep calmly. From studies, it has been found that those who have cluttered rooms full of their stuff take a long time to fall asleep and their sleep quality is also poor enough that it leads to an increased chance of stress. Tidying your wardrobe will have a positive effect on your health and the thought of going to the bedroom would be a relaxing and calming one. Not just this, but a tidy wardrobe will no more be home to bacteria and viruses that can compromise your health.
No doubt, cleaning up a messy wardrobe and streamlining your surroundings is no easy job but, with a little determination and taking a methodical approach, it is absolutely doable. You just need to get started. Happy Cleaning!
