A Clean Living Space Increases Productivity

cleaning productsI am a firm believer in keeping my living space clean. When my living space is clean my thinking is clearer and my state of being is less agitated. By contrast, when my living space is cluttered and unclean, my thinking becomes scattered and my anxiety level increases. This negative mindset only becomes exacerbated the longer I remain in this state of affairs because the idea that I should clean up sits in the back of my head and nags me constantly. It takes energy to keep this nagging at bay and this is energy I could be using for other purposes.

Certainly cleaning takes time that I could otherwise be using for other seemingly more productive purposes. But I think that it would be a mistake to use this logic as an excuse not to clean myself or to hire a cleaning service in Salt Lake City to do the job for me. The reason for this is simple. If I do not clean and my mind becomes scattered and my anxiety level rises I will become less productive because the energy I would be using to be productive is now either being spent to keep the nagging voice at bay or is depleted and spent through anxiety. This will effectively nullify any gains in productivity I might have reaped by spending less time cleaning and more time trying to be productive.

I truly believe I have a finite amount of energy to expend each day. If I do not clean or hire a cleaning service in Salt Lake City to clean for me a portion of that energy will be dissipated in anxiety. If my thinking is scattered I loose whatever remaining energy I have because I cannot effectively focus it towards being productive. This is why I have found that by simply taking the time to keep my living space clean I will actually increase my productivity in the long term.
