Why a clean space helps you sleep?

There is an old piece of wisdom that states 'a cluttered space is a cluttered mind', and we all inherently know this to be true. The tidiness of your bedroom can have a huge impact on your sleeping habits, and the quality of your sleep. Here are just some of the reasons it is important to keep your sleep space tidy:

1. It helps you create and stick to a bedtime routine

When you are trying to implement and stick to a routine, accessibility is the number one key. If you are making your new routine really difficult for yourself, then you just won't do it. Bedtime routines are extremely important for encouraging good sleep, and for most people, these are routines that are calming and help them wind down from the day. Putting your phone away in a specific place early in the evening, and reading a book instead, is helpful for many people, but to implement this you need your things to have specific places. This helps keep everything accessible and helps solidify these new habits as a nightly routine.

2. It helps you create a calm atmosphere

Your bedroom needs to be a sanctuary. Ideally, it should be aesthetically pleasing to you, with gentle lighting and calming colours. You want to walk into your bedroom and be able to breathe deeply. There is just no way to have that feeling in an untidy space. You'll always feel as though there is something you should be doing, and even if you aren't actually doing those things right then and there, you can never fully relax.

3. It helps your state of mind

Human psychology is hugely affected by the spaces we are in, and tidiness allows us the mental clarity to think and produce ideas in a far better way. Your mind will always reflect your physical space back to you in some form, which is why clutter and disorganisation are damning for a good night's sleep.

If you want to create a calmer and more sleep-conducive atmosphere in your room, an easy way to do that is to make sure everything you need has its place and is still easily accessible.
