Spring Cleaning, Good for Your Health?

If you're dreading Spring cleaning, here's something to lift your spirits.

Not only does Spring cleaning boost how many calories you burn, as little as 20 minutes of any kind of physical activity (including cleaning and gardening) a week helped mental health significantly, say researchers. So no, this is not to suggest that you should replace your endorphin boosting exercise routine with scrubbing toilets and floors, but to remind you that every little bit of physical activity counts — cleaning or otherwise.

If 20 minutes of housework can lift your spirits, imagine what a 30 minute jog on a beautiful Spring day will do for you.
