Spring cleaning in the modern world
While we’re not wiping away layers of soot, today spring cleaning still serves as a ritualistic refresh for the home. It’s a time set aside to do a deep clean and complete those chores around the house that normally take a back seat to busy schedules, work, kids, and daily home upkeep and maintenance.
Spring cleaning can also provide a psychological refresh. Take a look at how clean, freshly scrubbed, clutter-free surroundings can improve your quality of life:
Empower yourself. You feel more productive when you start decluttering. You inherently find things when you clean and get rid of the stuff you don’t need. No more looking for that particular book or your favorite pen. You function better when you know where to find things you readily use and store things in a neat and orderly manner.1
Clear your head. Cleaning your space helps you clear your head and focus. Whether it’s work, a personal project, or you have some big decision-making to do, cleaning and decluttering frees up space in your mind—you no longer have to worry about what needs to get done around the house and you can put your energy toward more important things.2
