THE BENEFITS OF A CLEAN HOME!
We all know how great it feels to come home to a clean house!
Here are some of the surprising benefits of having a clean home that you may never have thought of!
–NOT WASTING TIME
Taking just a few minutes to put items away right after you’re done using them has an amazing effect. This provides less of a mess and it’s easier to find the items next time you need them!
–MORE OPPORTUNITIES TO BE HOSPITABLE
I’m sure we’ve all been there—a friend calls you (or doesn’t even call first!) and tells you they’re coming over and they’re right around the corner!
Don’t get me wrong, your house doesn’t have to be spotless to impress a guest, but we don’t want to miss a shared moment over a messy house! A standard pick-up is easy to do each day, and makes your home look so much better. If you spend 15 minutes every day to clear off counters and put things back where they belong, it can make a huge difference!
–A QUICK BURST OF PHYSICAL ACTIVITY
A good cleaning session can get your heart pumping, especially if it’s a task like scrubbing down the shower or vacuuming the floors. Sometimes a vacuum can be so heavy, it’s like lifting weights, right?
If you hate to exercise, but want to stay active and healthy, just put on your rubber gloves and tackle a few cleaning jobs for 20-30 minutes. You’ll quickly break a sweat without paying for an expensive gym membership. Vacuuming can be your workout for the day!
–LESS MAINTENANCE AND REPAIRS
Keeping your appliances in good condition, will allow you to spend less money to repair or replace them. Cleaning your appliances regularly is the number one way to ensure that you get all the uses you can out of it.
–SENSE OF ACCOMPLISHMENT
When you cross something major off your to-do list, it will give you a huge boost of energy. It generally puts you in a better mood and makes you happier.
One quick glance over your clean and tidy house, and I promise you too will get warm and fuzzy whenever you think about all the hard work you’ve done. It will also encourage you to continue the habit in the weeks, months, and years to come.
