If, however, you're on the team that hates cleaning, the idea of spring cleaning is probably abhorrent to you. While you enjoy a clean, tidy environment, the thought of actually going through the motions makes you want to curl up and cry. And in this case, there are two choices — either you do the spring cleaning, or you don't.
If you DON'T do spring cleaning, nothing terrible will happen. The ceiling won't cave in and the walls won't shake beneath your feet. You'll just be left with the same old mess that sometimes you sort through, and sometimes you don't. HOWEVER, if you make a valiant attempt to tackle your house from top to bottom the way that spring cleaners do, you will most likely be pleasantly surprised.

The benefits of living life with minimal stress are many. Chronic stress can lead to all sorts of unpleasant issues like increased risk of heart disease, obesity, upset stomach, mental health issues and more.

Additionally, being physically and mentally healthy can lead to lower rates on life insurance. When your quality of life is high in these two spheres, life insurance companies usually offer lower monthly premiums.
