Spring is a great time to improve your living situation, and your health in the process.

How This Year's Spring Cleaning Can Give Your Health a Big Boost

Spring is right around the corner, which means the sun will be shining again after a long winter of cloudy, cold days. It is the perfect time to work on your boosting your mental and physical health. This year, pick a new home improvement project for this year’s spring cleaning to help you work out your extra energy and stress.

While you’re at it, you’ll notice how clearing out your home helps you clear out your head. It’s also a great way to build up some muscle and get your body back into summer beach bod shape. What is protein synthesis to your muscles in the Spring, is the same as the sun to photosynthesis in the Spring. Growth and rejuvenation! Here are some suggestions if you are not sure what your house needs improved upon this spring.

Repaint a room.

This is a common home improvement project. It can add new color to your house and brighten up a room. Repainting a room can be just the thing to get you into a new groove and out of the seasonal funk, especially after a long, cold winter. This home improvement project can help make a house seem more lively. It also can completely redefine a room for a much lower cost than buying new furniture or other home decor. Repainting a room is a relatively low cost way to give that room a completely new look.

Redesign and organize your closet.

Redesigning and organizing a closet is a necessity for any spring cleaning. Going through your clothes once a year is a great way to get new space and start out the spring season right. It will clean out the old clothes you do not normally wear and make room for a new spring and summer wardrobe. This is a project that should be done regularly and takes only a one to two days (depending on the size of the closet). Reorganizing your closet is a great way to transform your bedroom or hallway and make it look cleaner for the spring season.

Grout Cleaning

This is another project that can be done in a day or two. This is another perfect spring cleaning project that should be done regularly. It is important to keep your bathrooms clean, and an important thing that goes into this is cleaning the tiles. Like repainting a room, this project does require buying tile and grout cleaner, but it is worth it. A good tile and grout cleaning can make a bathroom look brand new again. While it can be hard work, depending on the tiles, grout, and buildup, it is worth it and the perfect project for this year’s spring cleaning.

Plant a garden.

This project is a bit more high maintenance and cannot be done in a single day, however it is probably the most rewarding. Planting a garden takes a lot of work and has a lot more going into it than these other one day tasks, but if maintained, it will completely change the outside of your house and your life. When you plant a garden, you can grow your own vegetables, flowers, trees, etc. Planting a garden can be made into whatever your interests want. It takes a lot of maintenance, but will beautify your front or backyard and is the perfect project for the end of winter. If you love the outdoors, nothing you can do at your house for a spring project will bring you as much joy as a garden.


Nature in the spring is a transformative season of life, so there is no reason why this cannot also occur in your home. Spring cleaning projects are fun and can bring a completely new look to a room, or the outside, of your home. Nothing works better to drive out the winter blues than transforming and cleaning part of your house to look brand new. Bring some new life into your home this spring with a creative project.
