Our lives have become increasingly stress-filled as work and time constraints continue to dominate our days. While our homes are our sanctuaries, many of us struggle with the stress of keeping it clean, welcoming, and comfortable. However, it doesn’t have to be this way. Creating a home that is really a sanctuary requires a shift in approach. Remember to take small, practical steps. A clean home is the first step in balancing our senses and finding relief from the stresses of life.
Keeping it Clean Keeps it Peaceful
Creating a home sanctuary starts with cleaning. A clean fresh environment clears the mind, the heart, and the senses. It helps restore peace of mind and centers us. Cleanliness is perhaps the key requirement of health, so it is always the starting point in establishing serenity and a calm environment. If your home is carpeted, then particular attention is needed to maintain a healthy and peaceful place.
House Cleaning and Stress Reduction
At first glance it may seem antithetical, but not only does a clean house reduce stress, but the physical activity of cleaning your home is also a soporific. It may not exactly be the first thing that springs to mind when thinking of stress-reducing activities, but it’s all in the way it’s approached. It can be viewed as meditation rather than a chore. As you organize and clean your home, you are also doing the same for the mind, which is a balm to the senses.
Clean Carpet Calm Room
When house cleaning for home and mind benefits, begin by removing clutter and clearing the space. Open the windows, turn on some music and begin moving your body to release stress-reducing endorphins. A sure and steady vacuuming of your carpet using a HEPA (High-Efficiency Particulate Air) filtered vacuum is a great beginning, and should be done once or twice a week. Vacuuming removes the obvious dirt and grime, but the invisible pollens, allergens, and dander that aggravate the senses are also eliminated. Removing these less visible stressors goes a very long way in restoring your home’s atmosphere. Use even vacuum strokes and go over it as task repetition also relieves stress.
Clean Products Clear Mind
Be conscious of using cleaning products that are natural and healthful for your home. Adding toxic products to your environment only adds to stress and anxiety because our bodies struggle to process these chemicals. Clean carpet maintenance can be effectively achieved by using baking soda sprinkled on the carpets with a few drops of essential oil of lavender. The calming properties of lavender are legendary and baking soda is a wonderfully effective natural cleaning agent.
