Have you noticed that the days are getting a little warmer in the valley of the sun? If you are a native of Arizona you know that we pretty much skip what traditionally would be considered “spring” around here. Triple digit temps and the A/C cranked up to full blast is in our future!
Even though we don’t get to enjoy spring like the rest of America, it doesn’t mean that we can’t do some spring cleaning! This time of year is the perfect time to declutter your home and get it ready for some summer fun! If this doesn’t sound like much fun, you should consider the health benefits of spring cleaning!
Health Benefits Of Spring Cleaning
Did you know that there are many health benefits to gain from spring cleaning? One of them being the removal of allergens from the home. During the winter months, allergens have a chance to accumulate because most of us keep our windows and doors shut to keep the cold out. This means that allergens have nowhere to go but to accumulate on your window sills, fans, mattress, baseboards and carpets.
Here is a short list of allergens that can be found in your home:
- Dust mites
- Pet dander
- Cockroach droppings
Spring Cleaning Reduces Stress
Did you know that spring cleaning can also reduce your stress levels? How many times have you come home from work to a bunch of stuff laying around the house? How does that make you feel? Angry? Overwhelmed? Depressed?
If you feel this way you are not alone my friend. A cluttered home is stressful and we all know that stress can have a negative impact on your health if it’s not dealt with properly.
The act of cleaning can boost your mood and reduce your stress by giving you a sense of accomplishment and seeing the results of your action.
Your home should be your sanctuary from the outside world and not a place that makes you stressed out.
Here are some tips you can use to keep clutter to a minimum:
- Donate whatever you haven’t used in 6 months. Odds are you are probably never going to use it.
- Make sure everything has a dedicated spot in your home. The saying “ A place for everything and everything in its place” is a great rule of thumb to live by.
- Do some light cleaning every day in order to prevent things from piling up
- For every item you bring into your home, get rid of something.
- Try creating a zero waste home!
Spring Cleaning Gets You In Shape!
Want to get in shape for the summer? What if I told you that spring cleaning can help you burn calories and make your home look great at the same time?
Cleaning can be very physical if you think about it. Scrubbing the floor, sweeping and mopping is all about repetitive motion, just like when you exercise. Did you know that a person weighing 150 pounds can burn 240 calories sweeping and 325 calories scrubbing floors in 30 minutes? You get the best of both worlds!
