Sunshine, warm weather, birds chirping…I LOVE Springtime and for the first time all year we have finally gotten warm, spring weather here and that just makes me HAPPY! However, with the warm weather finally beginning I am reminded that it is also time to do our Spring Cleaning! And the truth is that I don’t love to clean. I don’t enjoy facing the mounds of clutter that have caused my room to be like an obstacle course to get through. I don’t like cleaning out my closet and having to face the countless stacks of papers that have accumulated in every corner of each room. The truth is that I absolutely dread it!
Yet when I grit my teeth, dig in, and just get it done, I am always so unbelievably glad that I did. Because, let’s face it, there is little in life that feels quite as fantastic as walking into a room and having it be completely clean and organized. It is such a peaceful, amazing feeling. Our whole psyche is lifted when our surroundings are clean and organized. Our stress is lifted, we feel more productive, our energy increases, and we just feel HAPPIER!
“For every minute spent organizing, an hour is earned.” – Benjamin Franklin
And who doesn’t love having more hours in your day?! So spring cleaning here we all come!
