Winter blues? Stop thinking about a spring cleaning and DO a winter cleaning

January 9th, 2013 egreenfield

We hope you had a happy and “clean” holiday season.  Although we’re still in early January, spring will be here before we know it and people are already thinking about that good ol’ spring cleaning and planning for home makeovers come March and April.  While an annual spring cleaning is a good thing, why not consider a winter cleaning or, better yet, a winter home makeover?

 

Studies have shown that a messy house can worsen someone’s depression.  A messy house can also be a sign that someone’s depressed.  It’s really a chicken and the egg situation.  Fatigue and boredom – two symptoms of depression – will wreak havoc on the state of someone’s home.  The increasing dirtiness and clutter of the home will then increase negative feelings.  Imagine a tennis game of depression, the ball going back and forth.

 

Winter blues?  Stop thinking about a spring cleaning and DO a winter cleaningRegardless of what comes first, one thing’s clear: neither is healthy and good for your life.  Add a messy home with the usual malaise that winter can bring and it’s a recipe for disaster.  Why not prevent an inevitable emotional disaster and jumpstart plans to clean your home?

 

Start small.  You don’t have to renovate your entire home.  If the thought is too stressful and overbearing, consult a cleaning company, such as MCC Services.  The thing about depression is that small triumphs matter.  The same applies to having a clean home.  If you’re feeling those winter blues, look around your home.  Chances are, it may need a good cleaning.  Cleanliness is the first step toward happiness.
