Is cleaning your work or home space a task that you dread and wish were a hands-free chore? Well, let's take a moment to redefine your relationship with cleaning and reclaim it as a form of self-care and an act of not only decluttering the place you work and live in, but freeing up your mental space too.
Did you know that the very movements involved in mopping floors, wiping down surfaces, or washing dishes signals a state of focus and meditation to your brain because of the repetition involved in doing those activities? I, myself have gotten lost in thought while doing the laundry or scrubbing down the tub in the bathroom. It's like your brain goes into cruise control as you perform the chores that you have grown accustomed to doing and even have a routine down pat.
At the same time, with so many things that go on in our lives that are out of control, cleaning is one of those processes that you can control and you end up feeling accomplished once you've finished. Admit it; there is a sense of peace, relaxation, and restoration once you've folded and put away that mountain of laundry, cleared and filed that stack of paperwork that you were collecting on your desk at work, and wipe down the surfaces of your home and everything is in its rightful place.
The reward is so much greater than the time sacrificed because it all benefits you at the end, anyway. Plus, we have an assortment of room sprays all filled with natural ingredients sourced from plant essences to help freshen any room and smell divine without all the harsh chemicals found in other air fresheners, as your finishing touch.
