WELLNESS TIP: Cleaning Can be Fun & Good for Your Health

I’m reinventing #SundayFunday by advocating CLEANING today! Yes, Cleaning can be fun AND good for your health!⁣⁣⁣

Studies show that clutter contributes to increased cortisol, stress, anxiety, and other negative emotions. Conversely, cleaning helps you to #destress and has a positive benefit for your mental and physical health!⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣ 1. Cleaning can be a workout! Just 20 minutes of physical activity a day was helpful to decrease stress, and vigorous cleaning (like washing floors) helps rid negative energy and process unpleasant feelings.⁣⁣⁣ ⁣ 2. People are more productive and can relax much quicker in de-cluttered spaces.⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣ 3. Cleaning your home regularly rids it of unwanted allergens and pollutants, so you’re doing your immune system a favor.⁣⁣ ⁣ 4. People with the cleanest homes are the most physically active! There is an associated positive lifestyle overall, which leads to positive health outcomes.⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣ Here are some helpful tips to get started:⁣⁣⁣Tip 1: Do a "Timer 20-Minute Clean"

It only takes 20-minutes. Start with just one area and work away until that timer goes off. One part of your closet, one kitchen cabinet, bookshelves, or a small corner of your living room are some ideas.⁣⁣⁣ ⁣ Tip 2: Tackle high traffic areas first

You’ll see the changes ASAP, and get to enjoy the decluttered space more often.⁣⁣⁣ ⁣ Tip 3: Wipe down and tidy-up surfaces

This is the quickest way to see results after a quick once-through.⁣⁣⁣ ⁣ Tip 4: Quick-clean your bedroom weekly

Make sure that you tidy your bedroom weekly. This is where you rest and recharge, so ensure this area is spic and span. ⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣ Where will you start today? I cleaned up my kitchen and my home office and it feels awesome! ⁣⁣⁣
