Being OK with Clutter

 Spring cleaning appears to be a trend that will never go out of style, but have you ever thought about keeping a slightly cluttered home? There are a few reasons why this mentality makes sense, and a messy house can spark joy!

A messy home can lead to greater creativity, as overly neat environments can stifle the imagination. By allowing some clutter into your home, you are making room for hobbies that are important to you. It would be difficult, or nearly impossible, to dive deep into your passions without the proper tools.

Keeping clutter can also help overcome the need for perfectionism. If you obsess over vacuuming, dusting, and mopping, you may become too rigid and anxious if things are not perfectly in place. Clutter can ease the need to make things just right, and allow us to better relax into life.
