Cleaning: An ally of your mental health

Learn how cleanliness relates to your mental health:

Mental health is one of the most important topics in recent years, for this reason, some studies such as “The mental hygiene of the individual” talks about the relationship between cleanliness and the environment as one of the fundamental factors to improve the mental state of individuals. According to this article, “Health for man is not only a state of physical, mental and social well-being.
physical, mental and social well-being; it is also a state of balance between the individual and his environment, where hygiene plays a fundamental role for the health of all human beings.” So it could be said that the environment provides sensations associated with individual well-being and allows to create an idea of a physical environment suitable for each human being.

In general terms, the World Health Organization (WHO) defines mental health as “that state subject to fluctuations arising from biological and social factors in which the individual is able to achieve a satisfactory synthesis of his or her potentially antagonistic instinctive tendencies, to form and maintain harmonious relationships with others, and to participate constructively in the changes that are taking place in his or her life.
harmonious relationships with others and to participate constructively in the changes that may occur in a physical environment.
that may occur in a physical and social environment”. Thus, there are some disorders that are related to the habit of cleanliness and that help to maintain a sense of control and satisfaction with the space in which one lives most of the time, for example, Obsessive Compulsive Disorders (OCD’s), anxiety disorder or depression.

In summary, for Green Maids it is essential to provide support from all individual perspectives and contribute to generate feelings of well-being in all individuals. Maintaining cleanliness habits, from hand washing to meticulous cleanliness in the most recurrent spaces (such as home, work, etc.) contributes to sustain a mental health conditioned to our own rhythm of life, since hygiene ends up giving a sense of control, security and raises awareness of the emotions in which people adapt to their environment.

I am a real estate advisor and needed to book someone fast for a move out clean at one of my properties. Anna was so efficient and finding a team for me. They were on time, and the place looked great. I will use them again, and again.
