Get In the Spring Cleaning Spirit
Even though most of our area is digging out from yet another winter storm, images of spring are starting to blanket our psyche. Stores are setting up Easter displays. Home and garden departments are trading in shovels and sleds for trowels and seedlings. And you’re probably looking around your house thinking that it’s time for a spring polish.
Where do you start? There are so many rooms. So much to dust. Remnants of the holidays are still hiding on random bookcases and mantles. It can be overwhelming, and you might even think about climbing back in bed. But before you do, let’s work on some baby steps to brighten up your mood.
Cleaning, in and of itself, is multipurpose. Aside from keeping your home tidy, it’s exercise. And if you’re still snacking on leftover Valentine’s candy, then breaking a sweat might not be such a bad thing. Plus exercise naturally releases endorphins, which makes your brain happy.
Clutter can also cause depression and anxiety. Donate unused items to charity. Toss out stuff that you haven’t touched in months. A bright, open space is more welcoming. Climbing over piles of abandoned toys is not.
And finally, introduce some aromatherapy into your routine to help get you in the cleaning spirit. Lavender is a popular choice due to its calming effect, but don’t discount other scents that have an energizing effect, such as peppermint and tangerine.
