Why a Clean Home Brings Positivity Into Your Life – Everyone wants a clean space. The challenge is getting it, or even maintaining that spotlessness.
Whether you’re or a 9 to 5 or you enjoy chilling indoors, let’s be honest: Cleaning is a task that not many of us look forward to. It’s even worse if there are kids around.
The grossness, the energy, the time…ugh. These are just a few of the things we have to go through as we wipe the table, do the dishes, and other tiresome tasks. It would be so cool if we didn’t have to lift a finger.
Unfortunately, we have to pull our weight around so everything at home is in place. As tiresome as it may be, keeping your home clean is important. Not just for that neat look, but yours and your loved ones’ health as well.
A messy home encourages the buildup of cortisol, a steroid hormone that your brain produces when you’re stressed. A clean house, on the other hand, does the exact opposite. It helps keep you calm and relaxed.
It also causes your brain to release dopamine, otherwise referred to as the ‘happy hormone.’
Still thinking twice about scrubbing that dirty floor? Here are some reasons why cleaning your home is all you need to add some positivity into your life:
There’s always that nagging feeling that you can’t seem to shake when you relax and the house is a mess. No matter how hard you try bribing yourself with your favorite treat or pastime, that voice is there to stay- until you clean up!
Taking your time to care for your home allows you to sit back with zero guilt. Your mind is at rest since you’ve put everything in place. You can, therefore, think clearly and enjoy yourself however you want.
Maybe you’ve got a week’s worth of cleaning to do. No sweat. Make things easier by preparing a cleaning guide and stick to it.
Do you think that you spend lots of time sprucing up your place? Try finding something urgent when space is in shambles. The anxiety is enough to cause a migraine. On the flip side, it’s a piece of cake locating something when the house is clean.
If you have a hard time putting stuff away when you’re through with them, consider offering yourself a reward every time you do as a motivator.
In these trying times, staying home alone can be depressing. Sure, you have Fido on your lap as you enjoy a nice flick, but there will always be a time when you’ll long for human company.
If your house is clean, you won’t have to come up with excuses for why everything is in disarray when you invite that friend.
It’s generally easier and fun to have them over when your home is neat. You won’t have to worry about them sitting on something dangerous. Or, finding last year’s pizza in the fridge when they’re grabbing a drink.
Spending some time with friends helps take your mind off the sorry state of the world and your problems.
Okay, you may not get a headache when you’re in a messy place, but your creativity will be at its lowest. Hiding some things under the carpet won’t change anything. If you’re an artist, writer, or do jobs that need creativity, a clean crib guarantees total productivity.
It gives you all the space you need to focus entirely on whatever you are doing.
Most importantly, a clean home enables you to be in your best state of health. When your house is in disarray, you’re sharing your shelter with dander, bacteria, dust, and mold, which can bring sickness to you and your loved ones.
Cleaning is no fun. Agreed. But from the above points, we’ve seen how important it is. No matter how busy you’ve been throughout the day, take some time to clean before hitting the sack.
It doesn’t have to be a major exercise. Doing the dishes, wiping surfaces, and folding up and putting away clean laundry are some things you can do each day. Take care of your home for your beautiful smile to stay on your face. Happy cleaning!
