Health Benefits of a Clean Home
The New Year brings New Year’s resolutions that oftentimes are abandoned after only a month or two. Remembering your “why” will help you stay motivated. If one of your goals this year is to prioritize your health, don’t forget about your home.
Here are some benefits of keeping a tidy home for health reasons to keep you inspired.
A well kept home positively affects our emotions and behavior. A clean home gives you a sense of accomplishment which makes you more productive and happier. Clutter can cause people to feel out of control. Give yourself the gift of ease and improve your brain performance by keeping a clean home!
A study, conducted by New York’s St. Lawrence University, discovered that a messy bedroom can lead to increased anxiety and a poor night’s sleep. Sleep more peacefully when everything has a place and you don’t have nagging house chores looming over your head.
Cleaning your house gets your body moving. Physical activity has many benefits that include reducing the risk of disease, strengthening bones and muscles, improving cognitive performance, and improving body stability and flexibilty. Housework helps you recieve the benefits of getting into motion.
Get Sick Less Often
Vacuuming as well as sanitizing and disinfecting surfaces reduces the growth of viruses and other types of bacteria that can cause your family to get sick. Cleaning your home will continually pay in dividends as your family will stay healthier throughout the year. Also, visitors (like insects), prefer dirty places so make sure they stay uninvited. For people who battle allergies or asthma, getting rid of what triggers reactions is essential. Common allergens are pet dander, dust, and mold. Controlling allergens begins at home and helps to dramatically reduce symptoms.
