Life’s hectic pace often makes us want to simply zone out and not think of anything. In moments like these, you simply want to be quiet and alone. While these are easy demands not all of us have the luxury of time to do it. Nevertheless, we still look for ways out to be away from the maddening crowd. A quick weekend getaway is an easy solution but it has its own set of restrictions. Wondering how you can best put your zone out to be productive? Here is a solution, CLEANING!
There are always enough plates to clean up and sweeping to be done. While you may not always like doing them on weekends, there is always time for them when you want to simply concentrate on something non-demanding. The menial act of scrubbing plates or folding clothes add to the productivity when you are looking for mindless work.
This may seem like a Monica Geller obsession but it is a productive one at the same time. You may not be cleaning in your sleep but it is a sure way of calming down nerves when you are anxious. The feeling of control the act of cleaning gives, helps one to feel better.
Wondering which acts come under mindless cleaning? Well, it includes everything from doing dishes to chopping vegetables to cleaning your dirty sneakers. They all count. The best part of this type of cleaning is that it lets you mentally zone out without you having to leave the house. Solitude, after all, is a blessed feeling.
Granted sleep will be an easier way to forget your troubles or worries but a mindless cleaning spree actually lets you do the same while helping you keep your home clean. Time to get a mop to stop mopping.
