With git, there are commands which require a 'clean' working directory and stage/index, like rebase and there are commands which will work as long as there are no files with changes that would also have to change due to the command being run, like checkout.

If you don't want to have to understand which commands require what, my recommendation would be to always commit changes, frequently.
