Spring Cleaning Can Make You Healthier

The spring season is perfect for renewing your living space and your health.

Spring cleaning gives you the space you need to grow, de-stress, and finally get rid of all that accumulated junk.

Spring cleaning can also make you healthier and happier.

A Healthier Home for Healthier Living

You’re not just getting rid of clutter when you clean your home. You’re removing things that can make you sick.

Dirt and dust, pet hair and cobwebs, mold and mildew, allergens and pollutants, viruses and bacteria – these are all things that can contribute to health problems if they build up in your living space.

When you’re deep cleaning your home, be mindful of typically forgotten, overlooked, or hard-to-reach places, like furniture legs, on top of high and low things.

The kitchen is where we prepare our food, and the bathroom cleans ourselves. Both of these rooms have a lot of germs and bacteria, so it’s essential to clean them even more frequently.

Spring cleaning can also be a great time to remove anything that could contribute to potential injuries. Spend time considering, “What might cause me, or a guest, to slip, trip, or fall?” Find a place for shoes and other things to go and stay, so they don’t gather up on the floor and become tripping hazards.

Fix or install hand railings and grab bars for you or any guests who need them.

A Comfortable Home for Happier Living

When your living space is cluttered and messy, it can be overwhelming and stressful. By organizing and rearranging your living space, you make it easier to move around and relax.

Cleaning can be a chore, but it shouldn’t add to your stress. You can make the process easier by breaking it down into smaller tasks. Do the things that will relieve the most stress or make you happiest first.

Find ways to make it fun, even when it’s tedious. Put on background music and dance while you clean, or turn on your favorite TV show.

Having a clean home can make you feel more comfortable and confident. The fresh, new start of spring cleaning can even motivate you to make other improvements in your life.

A Welcoming Home for Friendly Connection

A healthy, happy home is a welcoming place to come home to after a long day.

Having a clean home can make it easier to host friends and family and be an inviting and comfortable place to enjoy each other’s company.

A cleaner, more organized home will also be a more supportive and nurturing environment for kids to grow and learn. It’ll be less stressful for them, and you’ll set an excellent example of what it means to take care of oneself and one’s space.

As you go through your old things, take a moment to remember the good memories you’ve made in this space. Spend some time reflecting, appreciating, and sharing. 

Then, with your newly rejuvenated space, it’s time to create new, happy memories for yourself and your family.
