Day 25: Spring Cleaning

Posted by J. Rose Allister at 6:00 AM
Today's Positivity activity:  Give the house a positivity lift with some good old-fashioned cleaning
Do this instead of: Sitting idly on the internet or watching TV

While I can't say the prospect of dusting, culling, and scrubbing gives my positivity an automatic boost, I know that relaxing in a nice, clean environment is definitely a huge positive.

To meet the criteria for my daily challenge, tasks should be "small and easily managed gestures", so today's spring clean consisted of a thorough cleaning of the bathroom and living room rather than a full top to bottom scrub. Since I tend to see what's not done rather than what's been accomplished, I feel this activity didn't give me as much of a boost as it will once the other zones have been tackled. Still, with things tidy, organized, and smelling fresh in the areas where I bathe and sit down to relax, I did feel a bit better for the effort.
