We promise we’re not pulling your leg, but spending money can actually make you happier, that’s what one study shows. Now we don’t mean just spending your cold hard cash willy-nilly, but putting it towards something that’s going to make your life a little easier.
“A study by the University of British Columbia and Harvard Business School, published in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, has found buying time makes people happier than buying material things (CBSNews, 2017).”
When you hand your chores over to someone else your stress is reduced, with many people admitting that they felt much less pressed for time. So, if you don’t particularly enjoy cleaning the house why not, if you can, hire a cleaning service to do it. Spend that time doing something more valuable instead. Try riding that bike you forgot you bought last month or peruse the local animal shelter’s website and finally convince yourself it’s time to get a cat. Trust us there’s a lot of options out there that are way more fun than cleaning!
We’re just here to report to the facts, if being a little happier can come from hiring a cleaning service, why not do it? You only live once, so make the most of life! Come home to a clean house and have plenty of time left for yourself!
