When it comes to happiness and creativity, there is very little out there that is more important than your home. It is your personal habitat, where you can relax, concentrate, think, feel, and do practically anything you like. It is your own private slice of heaven. To be able to truly use it to its fullest potential, however, it is vital to have the right setup.
The first and most important benefit of well organized home space is better health. When you have more space, and more importantly, enough free and allocated space, you're instantly able to make better life decisions for yourself. Although this sounds dramatic, the reality is that it most certainly isn’t.
Even the smallest changes to your home space like using your bedroom only for sleeping or relaxing specifically, using your living area for enjoyment and using your kitchen/eating area for activities like study, cooking and eating, and exercise. These are just the smallest possible examples of small changes you can make, but each of them helps you to subconsciously develop habits that are truly transformational for your health.
After you have a setup like this, you’ll rapidly begin to see better sleeping habits, better eating habits, more regular mealtimes, better posture, and a clearer mind too, just from simple steps toward better productivity.
As well as better physical and mental health, it’s also a good thing to note that organizing your home space in ways like this can also really help toward being more focused and less distracted when you’re home. If you work at home. That can be extremely important.
Having designated rooms for things like studying or working in particular means that it’s very easy to train your mind into recognizing that place as a space to work. Once you combine that with actively reducing the distractions that are available in that vicinity and less of the relaxing things you enjoy doing, you can quickly change your attitudes without realizing.
The COVID-19 crisis has seen a phenomenal rise in the working from home, and as well as architects and architectural designers seeing a rise in demand for this type of home setup, it’s just as important for you to help yourself whenever you can.
Finally, a by-product of everything else spoken about is simply that organizing your space at home more than anything will actually result in you having the best spaces possible.
In almost every situation where you find yourself organizing your space, you’ll naturally declutter, ridding things that you don’t need, freeing up space, removing negative distractions, and making your home into something that you truly do enjoy.
Of course, there is more to being happy at home than simply organizing yourself and your life accordingly, but as a simple start, it can be truly transformational if your embrace the changes that come with it.
