Does coming home to a clean environment really make that much of a difference? Maybe a better question is if you came home to a clean environment if your life (as you know it) would improve in any way, shape, or form. If the answer is yes, then what are you waiting for? If you think the answer is no, then this post is for you.
This post is going to be simple: a comparison of what it would be like coming home to a clean home (in other words the benefits), and what it would be like coming home to a not-so-clean home. Keep in mind that clean doesn’t only mean that a room has been dusted and vacuumed – cleaning also has a lot to do with organization.
Let’s take a look.
The first scenario that we are going to look into is coming home to a dirty environment. Do you feel motivated when you come home to the lawn looking bad? What about their being dust all over the counters?
Does it feel good that you haven’t used your Central Vacuum Puyallup system in over a month? Or do you think it actually is taking a toll on your morale? The biggest issue with this problem is the fact that humans tend to continue their habits (good and bad) until someone tells them otherwise. In other words, someone might not know that their mentality is even being affected by living in a dirty environment because they’ve never had a clean one!
A side point that is worth noting here is that people who come to your house will notice that it is dirty and automatically assume that you are unorganized and leave things to the last minute as well.
As we can see, there are many negative components to not cleaning your home.
Let’s take a look at the other side of things.
Have you ever came home from work to a completely clean home? You pull up to your driveway and your grass is mowed, the hardwood is smooth, and there is not a speck of dust in site. This feeling is incredible – but sometimes we don’t even notice it.
Next time you come to your house when it’s clean, observe your behavior and mentality. Are you happier? More motivated? Or do you feel the same way that you always feel? It may be the case that your mentality doesn’t change that much, and that’s okay. However, for most people coming home to a clean environment is refreshing and motivating. In fact, once most people start de-cluttering their homes and cleaning more often certain patterns start to overlap into other areas of their life.
Maybe instead of leaving your bed messy you become more motivated to clean it in the mornings. Did you know that the same concept that applies to bad habits and repetition also applies to good habits? Believe it or not, the more that you keep your house clean, the more motivated you will be to actively clean instead of letting things pile up?
To conclude, there are many benefits to keeping your home clean that go far beyond just the usual things. Making an effort to really keep up with your house cleaning can go a long way!
