Clean Home, Clear Mind

Yes, it may sound a bit cliche, but it’s remarkable how much the phrase ‘clean home, clear mind’ rings true. Truly, when you are surrounded by a good, healthy and clean standard of living in your home, your mind reacts to it. And it reacts to it by being clear; and when your mind is clear it has the potential to do anything you ask of it or it asks of itself. So, get to work on giving your home a clean, whether it’s spring time or not!

The best way to start any home clean is to target all of the mess in or directly outside of it that can pose a very serious risk to your health. And, more often than not, this means specifically targeting any rubbish or junk that may have been left to rot anywhere near your home. In this case, first and foremost you must ensure that you mandate all instances of the throwing out of garbage. You must keep your own bins as empty as can be. You must ensure that the professional waste removal companies that deal with your bins are doing their jobs both regularly and well. And you must take any garbage that is big enough to warrant being taken to a nearby tip, to your local tip. You must do these things if you want to have both a clear mind, and a clean bill of health.

Mandating your rubbish disposal isn't the only thing that you need to do in your home in order to retain the standard of health that you deserve and keep your mind as clear as can be. No, you must also do all you can to protect your home from the plight that is pesky pests too. Pests, such as bedbugs, ticks and termites, may be tiny creatures but they can make a big impact on your health if given the chance to. So, it’s your job to ensure that they don’t get the chance to do so by banning them from your home. To do this you should always be vigilant. You should always check your bed and keep it clean in order to deter bedbugs. You should regularly check any pets that live with you for any ticks that they may have picked up outside. And you should always keep an eye on any wood in your home in order to try and spot, and subsequently banish, termites. By doing so you keep your home clean of pests and, more importantly, you keep you and your family safely away from them too. Taking care of your health doesn’t have to hurt; well, it doesn’t have to hurt you anyway. It can hurt all the pesky pests and the germs that they harbour, but it doesn’t have to hurt you. 

And, continuing in this vein, you also need to keep a look out for creatures of bigger stature in your home and its surrounding area that can have a detrimental impact on your health. Specifically, this means keep a lookout for any animals that may have died within the borders of your property, or even outside of them. It’s not nice to think that wild animals such as skunks, opossums, foxes and deers (just to name a few) can meet such bitter ends, like being hit by a car or being killed by another animal in a fight. It’s not nice to think that they can suffer and die in such a way. Unfortunately, however, this is just the way the cycle of life works. And, unfortunately, the bodies that these animals leave behind need to be dealt with and removed as soon as can be. This is because as the dead body decays, it will begin to attract flies. These flies will then lay eggs in the carcass. These eggs will then turn into maggots, which will then turn into flies. And, before you know it, your home will be infiltrated with millions of disease carrying flies. And, whilst all of this is happening, there will be a smell emanating from the dead body the likes of which you will have never smelt before and will never want to smell again. So, have the body of any dead animals that you see in the area of your home removed by professionals as soon as you can. And do not fear as there are a whole host of professionals in that particular field the world over that will assist you with the likes of dead deer removal from the outside of your home, and the removal of creatures such as skunks and rats that have died within it. Remember: as soon as you spot a dead carcass, make sure it is dealt with.

But cleaning your home doesn’t just have to benefit your health. No, by cleaning your home and keeping it clutter free you can improve a whole host of other areas and aspects of your life too. For example, when you keep your home clean and tidy, you make it less likely to misplace and lose things. Thus, you help to keep your mind clear and save time on searching for things, such as your keys or your TV remote. Also, what keeping your home clean and tidy can do is improve your social life and subsequently the confidence that can be gained from it. When you keep your home clean and guest friendly you are more likely to invite others over to it. And when this happens, it is a lot easier to both forge and then retain relationships. So, get to tackling all those watermark rings on your coffee table and then invite your friends over for coffee. Just make sure they use a coaster so as to avoid watermark rings appearing again!

Being surrounded by filth in your home makes you far more likely to have a clouded mind. And a clouded mind can harm you in any number of ways. It can hold you back in work. It can keep you from forging social relationships. And it can make you suffer with issues regarding self confidence and self negativity. So, keep your home as clean as can be!
