Cleaning Your Home Can Aid in Addiction Recovery

January 14th is Organize Your Home Day. For many people, this is a chore that is often procrastinated. However, it’s important to recognize how a clean home can actually be a beneficial tool for your recovery.

Our team at North Georgia Recovery Center is here to explain why you should prioritize your at-home organization for success in other aspects of life, like recovery!

How a Clean Home Helps Those in Recovery

Recovery can be a period of ups and downs, and you may feel out of sorts at times. Having a clean environment can actually help you maintain your inner peace as you continue throughout your recovery journey. Contemplate this: If you are feeling stressed, would you be able to relax in a messy room? Most likely not. Instead, you’ll likely find it easier to be at peace in a room where things are visually calm and organized.

The Best Tips for Home Organization

Taking on a full home reorganization project may seem daunting. However, there are certain smaller areas and tasks to focus on that can still lead to positive changes.

Focus on the areas where you spend the most time. If you spend 40 hours a week at an in-home office, then prioritize cleaning that space. If you spend most of your downtime in your living room, then put additional focus there.

Let go of what you don’t need. This should be done with your physical belongings, but also the mental obstacles holding you back and causing you trouble during recovery.

Make it a habit. If you can make it a habit to declutter and tidy up every day, you will feel so much better about your space. This activity will also keep you busy and active– two very important things to be during recovery.
