We usually see cleaning as a mundane chore that must be completed–eventually. If we ignore that small mess in the corner, it could evolve into an out-of-control mess. However, after a fun day out with friends or a hard day’s work at the office, taking care of even a small pile of building clutter seems like a task that can wait until later. Maintaining this habit of cleaning procrastination creates more work and stress for you in the long run, and can make you overlook some of the rewards of practicing regular cleaning.
Here are a few reasons why maintaining a clean home and committing to a regular cleaning schedule will relieve you of stress in the long run:
- Prevents piles of palpable problems: Taking time to take care of the little things now, prevents them from becoming big things later. If you rinse and dry dishes immediately after you use them, you will prevent an unstable pile of porcelain in your sink. If you’re familiar with this delicate structure, then you know how it hinders other cleaning tasks and dissuades you from committing to cleaning more than just that leaning pile or plates.
- Who needs jazzercise when you can clean instead: Stress and frustration are commonly remedied by physical activity–just think of the movie Legally Blonde, in the famous words of Elle Woods, “Exercise gives you endorphins. Endorphins make you happy. Happy people just don’t shoot their husbands, they just don’t.” Therefore, hauling away unnecessary clutter will help to clear your space and your head, while giving you a little exercise as well.
- Organize to save some cash: Removing clutter helps to keep things organized and easy to find. This can save you money from having to replace items you can’t find when you need them and prevent you from losing track of important financial documents. Also, you can organize your unwanted items into separate pile for donation–a tax write-off–or to be sold in a garage sale.
- Happy house, happy…just happy: probably the most rewarding aspect of cleaning your home is that your house itself will become more enjoyable to live in for everyone. Not to mention that guests will certainly feel more comfortable when they can actually find the couch to sit and relax.
