Stumped on what to get your significant other for Valentine’s Day? Instead of diamonds, why not give the gift that really sparkles—a clean house! In fact, you could turn on the dance music and even create a cleaning ‘date night.’
According to experts, couples who do household chores together tend to be happier. And, if you stop to think about it, it makes a lot of sense. After all, the stress-free environment of a clean, organized home only enhances feelings of peace and contentment—especially in a marriage!
Here are two reasons why cleaning together can lead to more happiness:
You will spend productive time together.
How many hours each day are typically spent in front of the television without any lasting benefits? On the other hand, spending time cleaning together will result in a tidy home, a refreshing atmosphere, and more time for what matters most.
Make it a regular habit to ‘tidy up’ as a team. Use dish duty as a time to catch up on the day, or laundry folding as a time to reconnect. At the end of the day, you will both be happier and a lot less stressed.
You will lift each other’s burdens.
No one likes to feel as though they are stuck with all of the household chores. Undue resentment can build when one person gets left holding the broom (so to speak).
An interesting point is made in this article that says, “Stress levels increase in your home when either one of you is unhappy about unfinished chores. Couples fight over ‘who does what’ around the house almost as much as they fight over money.”
Wow. Who would have thought that unfinished tasks would cause just as many fights as arguments about money! Don’t let housecleaning get in the way of your happiness. Establish a harmonious groove of cleaning together and enjoy a more peaceful, happy marriage.
