When you get stressed about something, do you clean? lol

I have been stressing out about my husband missing so much work lately and financial issues, I've been doing some Spring cleaning. It's something I have control over and it makes me fee a little better to have everything clean. lol. Anyone else do this? What do you do when you are stressed to make you feel a little better?

  • Deep cleaning is good therapy for when I need to blow off steam or I am stressed, my whole house was just reorganized over stress and being mad as hell because my dh spends until there is no money for bills then I get stressed. Now I look around and wonder why it too me so long to get this place looking so "neat" and clutterfree

  • Hmmmmm yea I guess I do clean to get rid of the stress and extra energy. Might explain why my house is usually spotless. Hard to think about troubles or problems when your cleaning.

  • I am like you OP! I clean when I am stressed or worried. I like your idea about cleaning other ppl's houses. That would be a great stress reliever and make some extra $$$

  • Maybe that's what I should start doing when I'm stressed! Sounds like an excellent idea.
