Clean Room, Balanced Life
Most of us strive to perfectly balance our social life, work, working out, eating healthy, hobbies, friends, family etc. But with so much to balance, it can feel nearly impossible to accomplish. As a college student learning how to adult and balance my life, I have found that one of the most undervalued, yet important things to do is to ~clean your room~. And you might be wondering how cleaning your room has anything to do with balancing your life, here’s how:
1. It’s Therapeutic
One time (but it’s happened more than once), I was having a bad day and feeling like everything that could possibly go wrong in my life, was going wrong. I was about ready to give up and call it a day when my friend gave me the best advice. Her wise words were: “Clean your room, I swear it’s therapeutic”. So, I took her advice. As I was cleaning room, I instantly began to feel calmer. Cleaning my room gave me a clean mind and filtered out all of the negative thoughts about my day.
Lesson: Clean room is a clean mind
2. It helps you stay organized
Cleaning my room helps me stay organized, physically and mentally. It is physical in the way that my room actually looks organized. And mental in the way that, once I have cleaned my room, I feel that the rest of my life is organized. In simpler words, it makes me feel like I have all my sh*t together.
P.S One thing that can help in making your room look more organized and cleaner is having furniture that can also be used as storage. ZUO has many options for modern furniture with built in storage.

3. It motivates you to be productive
Lastly, the act of cleaning my room makes me feel productive. After spending time cleaning and realizing that it clears my head, I want to continue being productive. Therefore, cleaning my room motivates me to get other things done. And when my day is over, I feel accomplished because I have used my day productively.

A clean room leads to a more clean mind, and an organized, productive life. All of these things combined leads to a ~balanced life~.
