Declutter Your Mind: Mental Health Awareness Week with Anglo Doorstep Collections

As Mental Health Awareness Week approaches, it’s important to recognise the connection between our mental well-being and our physical environments. At Anglo Doorstep Collections, we understand the profound impact that clutter can have on mental health, which is why we’re committed to promoting a tidy, clear, clutter-free home environment and raising vital funding for Mind charity.

When is Mental Health Awareness Week 2024?

Mental Health Awareness Week typically falls in May, serving as a crucial reminder to prioritise mental well-being and raise awareness about mental health issues. This year, the campaign is running from the 13th to the 19th of May. However, to raise more awareness and try to fundraise as much as we can, we are running our Mind charity campaign from the 7th to the 19th of May.

About Mind Charity

Mind Charity was established in 1946, originally as the National Association for Mental Health (NAMH). Later renamed Mind in 1972. Even though 1 in 4 people have mental health problems, most of us don’t get the help we need. Mind offers information and advice to people with mental health problems and lobbies government and local authorities on their behalf. This has to change. We’re Mind. We’re here to fight for mental health. For support, for respect, for you. To read more, visit their website.

How your mental health can be affected by clutter in your home

Research has shown that a cluttered home can contribute to stress, anxiety, and feelings of overwhelm. In fact, over 80% of individuals report experiencing stress and anxiety directly linked to the clutter in their living spaces. The accumulation of excess household items can create a sense of chaos and disarray, making it difficult to relax and unwind.

But the good news is that decluttering your environment can lead to significant improvements in mental health. By clearing out unnecessary items and organising your space, you can create a sense of calm that positively impacts your mood and overall well-being. A tidy home will give you control over your surroundings, reducing feelings of overwhelm and promoting a more positive mindset.
