Spring Cleaning and Your Mental Health

Stress

Not only and clutter and mess add to your stress, the action of cleaning can help reduce anxiety and stress! This is partly due to the physical activity required to complete cleaning jobs. These actions help release hormones in your brain that can improve your mood.  A study found that those who regularly clean their spaces report lower levels of stress and fatigue, than those who do not clean or declutter their area.

Mood

Cleaning can help you feel a sense of achievement and control! This can kickstart your mood and your sense of productivity. Starting and finishing a cleaning task can break the cycle of unproductivity and help you feel like you can achieve the things you set out too.
