The weather is starting to warm up, the days are getting sunnier and the birds are singing! It’s finally spring … cleaning time!
While it may not be the activity you look forward to the most, taking a more eco-friendly approach and green cleaning your home might add to the positive effects cleaning may already have on your mental health.
The Mental Health Benefits of a Clean Home
Research shows that people who live in messy homes are more stressed than people who don’t. Clutter may also cause depression, confusion and tension. Fortunately, the opposite is also true. Cleaning your home causes feelings of empowerment and control, as well as an elevated mood, less anxiety and better concentration.
Those are pretty good reasons to change the way you think about spring cleaning your Foothill Place apartment. You may still prefer to go to Utah’s Hogle Zoo if given the choice but it’s good to know that cleaning is something that can turn your mood around.
Ways To Go Green With Your Cleaning Process
What can make you feel even better is taking care of the environment, which you can do by using cleaners with natural ingredients like lemon, vinegar, and baking soda, instead of the toxic chemicals that are common in most cleaning products.
There are some eco-friendly cleaners in-store you can get your hands on too if that’s what you prefer.
Local Stores for Cleaning Material
If you want to pick up some eco-friendly household cleaner to make your surfaces — and your smile — shine, you can get it at any of your local Home Depots.
The way you maintain the space you live in may have a significant effect on your happiness so try to keep your space uncluttered and take care of your mental health.
