With the most recent study out in the market, washing dishes, making your bed, dusting, and other common chores will never be a burden anymore if you want to live a healthy and peaceful life. Apparently, these chores can lower stress, boost happiness, and protect against heart disease; so you’ll never be looking at that ‘To-Do list’ the same way again.
Dusting with a lemon cleaner makes you happier
According to a 2014 Japanese study, a citrusy scent is a potent mood booster. When participants spent as little as ten minutes inhaling a super-tart and citrusy Japanese fruit – Yuzu, they saw a significant decrease in their overall mood disturbance, which was merely a combination of tension, anxiety, depression, confusion, fatigue and anger.
Making your bed every day boosts productivity
Starting your day with a freshly made bed is a “keystone habit”, the one that has a ripple effect to create other good behaviour. Making your bed every morning is linked to better productivity, a greater sense of well-being, and stronger skills at sticking to a budget. Bed makers also report getting a better night’s sleep than those who leave their covers messy in the morning.
Cleaning the kitchen loses weight
A recent study showed that people with super-cluttered homes were 77 percent more likely to be overweight or obese. The likely reason: It’s harder to make healthy food choices in a chaotic kitchen.
Growing flowers and vegetables lowers depression risk
Study proves that gardening helps mitigate depression. Doing a new activity and being outside in nature can certainly help, but some experts believe that dirt itself might be a depression fighter.
Mowing the lawn makes you more joyful
There’s something to that grassy scent. Australian researchers discovered that a chemical released by freshly cut grass makes people feel more relaxed and more joyful.
