The Effects Cleaning Has On Your Brain


Did you know that cleaning your bedroom can actually improve your mood? According to, studies have shown that having a messy household can cause depression, anxiety, confusion and decreased focus. Naturally, cleaning your room can help bring forth a new and fresh mindset, helping you complete tasks efficiently and effectively. 


Your bedroom can tell a lot about who you are as a person, such as what your interests/hobbies are, what you do most of the time and even how your mind works/presents itself. 


I feel like cleaning in itself is quite a tedious task that some people try to romanticize from time to time. I mean, I’ve seen quite a few cleaning videos online with certain aesthetics I try to follow. Although, they usually change depending on my mood. Lots of people try to procrastinate and not clean their room until the very last moment. Like when somebody comes over. Cleaning should be more of a habit, rather than a hobby. A sort of discipline that you not necessarily try to resort to, but something that you force yourself to do. For your own well-being, of course. 


And if you don’t enjoy cleaning, try to make it more exciting for yourself. You could try listening to music while cleaning, or even give yourself mini rewards after each and every one of your cleaning sessions. 


But now let’s get into what cleaning your room really is and its importance to showcase yourself and your interests. 


Did you know that different colors can affect your mood? This is shown to be very important when it comes to painting the colors of your walls and furniture in your room. 


According to, bright and bold colors tend to give off an energizing feeling to your mood. According to, Darker colors however help people focus better, increase their attention span and even perform better on day-to-day tasks. 


Cleaning can also help promote clarity, and even help you feel more purposeful and intentional in your decision making. It can even improve your work ethic, and give you the motivation to finish off other tasks.
