Learn to Love Housework

Clean house, better body, clear mind!

Clean house, better body, clear mind!

I love a clean house, and I don’t always hate housework, but I don’t always have time for it. I came across a great article that I know speaks to many of us, about changing our attitude toward chores- whether we are short on time or not. This article attests that cleaning our homes does more than leave us with a clean house, it also also burns excess calories, wards off diseases and helps us live better and longer lives! Those are some amazing benefits.

Here are a few highlights sited in the article:

A study of 200,000 women in nine European countries found that housecleaning between 15 and 17 hours a week — a little more than 2 hours per day — cut breast cancer risk by 30% among pre-menopausal women and 20% among post-menopausal women.

An Indiana University professor showed that 4 hours of work in and around the house helped hypertensive and pre-hypertensive patients lower their blood pressure, in some cases to normal levels.

As little as 20 minutes per day of vigorous housework can cut stress by as much as 20%, according to a University College London survey.

These are powerful studies, and they help me realize that cleaning my house not only benefits my home but benefits my body as well.  If you are selling your central Ohio home, it helps to have a clean home so it appeals to more buyers. To read the full article, click here.
