Why Spring Cleaning is Good for You

By, Ashley Martens 

What is Spring Cleaning?

First things first. What exactly is spring cleaning? Spring cleaning is the practice of thoroughly cleaning your home in the spring. Spring cleaning traditionally starts in the springtime, hence spring cleaning, but it can really take place any time of the year.

Spring cleaning is often used to describe any type of deep cleaning or organizing, but annual spring cleaning is especially prevalent in climates that experience cold winters, like the East Coast and Midwest. Spring is the perfect season to shake the dust off from fall and winter and start fresh for the upcoming, warmer months of spring and summer.

Benefits of Spring Cleaning

Spring cleaning is a good opportunity to get your house in great shape after the long season of winter hibernation. Think about how much time you spend indoors during winter. All of that bacteria left behind from the winter months and forced air heating can irritate allergies or other health problems, which is why it is good to give your home a thorough, deep clean after the winter season.

Spring cleaning your home can also help remove all types of lingering dust, mold, and pollen that could cause discomfort to you and your health during other times of the year. That even includes at night when you are trying to fall asleep.

The lower concentration of allergens decreases the risk of getting allergies, making it easier for you to fall asleep. Otherwise, you risk disrupting your sleep by sneezing or having a runny nose due to irritants in the air and around your home. Who knew spring cleaning could lead to a better night’s sleep?

Ridding your home of winter messes not only positively affects your physical health, but it can also support your emotional and mental health, not to mention your psychological state. Think about it. Don’t you feel frenetic when your home is dirty and in utter chaos? Now, think how you feel when you are living in a clean and clutter-free home. See. The state of your home can easily affect your focus, mental state, mood, and the wellness of your mind.

Regardless of how much time you spend inside your house, your home greatly influences you and your way of life. If you work from home, a clean home helps you stay focused on your daily tasks. On the other hand, if you rarely spend any time at home due to obligations such as travel or work, a clean home can act as a place of respite to get grounded so you can recharge, reconnect, relax, and restore your energy after time away.

Whether you spend a lot or a little time at home, coming home to a clean and tidy house encourages you to stay organized and keeps you feeling energized and motivated in your life (and also to keep your home that way, too). Spring cleaning ultimately helps relieve the stress that comes along with a messy home and sets you up for an enjoyable springtime season ahead.

Start Spring Cleaning

Spring cleaning is a great way to de-stress and release endorphins, which can give you the satisfaction and thrill of having achieved something. Whether you take a day, a weekend, or even a whole week, find some time to spring clean this month because it is actually good for not just your home but also your health. Happy spring cleaning!
