Keeping a House Clean

organizing 2It can be frustrating after a home owner hires a cleaning service Salt Lake City to clean his or her house and the house is messy again just two days later. Often this happens because the home owner shares his or her house with a family. Add pets into the equation and the house does not stand a chance to stay clean for very long. This is why it is important to keep up with cleaning a little bit every day. This practice in combination with hiring a cleaning service that will clean the house every week or every other week should be sufficient to keep the house in decent shape.

The home owner can perform the tasks that are easy to perform on a daily basis. Examples of this type of work include vacuuming, keeping surfaces free of clutter and doing the laundry. The cleaning service Salt Lake City can perform these tasks as well (albeit in a more thorough and professional manner) but will also perform the tasks that are more difficult or are perhaps less obvious to perform. The prime example of this kind of task is dusting but also includes cleaning out of reach surfaces and areas behind objects.

House cleaning is difficult work but it has to be done in order for a home owner to feel good about where he or she lives. The home is a place where a home owner will spend a significant amount of his or her life. Nobody really wants to clean a house but nobody wants to live in a messy house. This is why hiring a cleaning service is money well spent not only because it results in a professionally cleaned house but also because it frees up time in a home owner’s life to do other things.

The Mysteries of the Mind and Home Cleaning in Salt Lake City

cleaning productsThe benefits of hiring a cleaning service Salt Lake City are legion. The first and most important benefit is that your house will be clean after you do so. This may seem like a perfectly obvious statement of fact and indeed one that probably need not be mentioned in an article for the purpose of convincing someone to hire a cleaning service. It does however bear mentioning because often the most obvious facts are over looked. This is especially true when one lives in a messy house. As the ancient proverb tells us a messy house is often associated with a confused mind. As an interesting aside, in Sigmund Freud’s signature work “On the Interpretation of Dreams” he states that a dream about a house is symbolic of the inner workings of the mind of the dreamer. It makes sense therefore that if one lived in a messy house he or she might not be fully capable of connecting the dots (as it were) regarding the primary benefit of hiring a cleaning service.

Strongly correlating to this first primary benefit of hiring a maid service Salt Lake City is the added psychological benefit that when one hires a house keeping service Salt Lake City he or she need no longer dwell on the fact that his or her house requires cleaning. This may also seem like an obvious truth that does not require mentioning. However, when one is freed of this psychological burden he or she will experience a feeling of liberation. This feeling of liberation is actually the freeing up of mental energy that had been previously devoted elsewhere. Once this mental energy has been freed it can then be devoted to more beneficial and profitable areas of interest. Home cleaning Salt Lake City is essential to a clear mind and the ability to maintain focus. Fortunately there are many services available to hire for this purpose.

Questions to Consider When Choosing a Wedding Venue

wedding_33When young couples intending to marry investigate the various wedding venues in Salt Lake City there are many competing factors to consider and evaluate. The first and most important factor to consider is whether the wedding venue fits within the couple’s budgetary constraints. Many times couples feel compelled to exceed their budgets because the wedding is such an important life event and the money issues can be sorted out at a later date and time. This would be a mistake, however, because money issues are a major cause of marriages breaking up statistically speaking. As such, it would not bode well to begin the wedding on the wrong foot financially speaking.

Another important factor to consider when choosing a wedding venue is what are the specific rules that the wedding venue requires adherence to and whether that fits with the couple’s vision for their special day. For example, in Utah especially there are many rules and regulations concerning the serving of alcoholic beverages. Wedding venues in Salt Lake City may have further restrictions upon these state imposed restrictions. Accordingly, it would probably be a good idea to investigate these or any other restrictions the venue might impose prior to entering into a contract with a prospective wedding venue.

Finally, a couple investigating a wedding venue should also consider whether the location will actually accommodate the number of people invited to the event itself. This consideration goes beyond whether the venue is large enough to accommodate the number of people invited but also whether the venue has the facilities necessary to accommodate the special needs of the people invited to the venue. For example, if the venue has a lot of stairs it might not be ideal if many elderly guests will be attending. Obviously, these three paragraphs merely scratch the surface of the many factors to consider when making this decision.

A Clean Living Space Increases Productivity

cleaning productsI am a firm believer in keeping my living space clean. When my living space is clean my thinking is clearer and my state of being is less agitated. By contrast, when my living space is cluttered and unclean, my thinking becomes scattered and my anxiety level increases. This negative mindset only becomes exacerbated the longer I remain in this state of affairs because the idea that I should clean up sits in the back of my head and nags me constantly. It takes energy to keep this nagging at bay and this is energy I could be using for other purposes.

Certainly cleaning takes time that I could otherwise be using for other seemingly more productive purposes. But I think that it would be a mistake to use this logic as an excuse not to clean myself or to hire a cleaning service in Salt Lake City to do the job for me. The reason for this is simple. If I do not clean and my mind becomes scattered and my anxiety level rises I will become less productive because the energy I would be using to be productive is now either being spent to keep the nagging voice at bay or is depleted and spent through anxiety. This will effectively nullify any gains in productivity I might have reaped by spending less time cleaning and more time trying to be productive.

I truly believe I have a finite amount of energy to expend each day. If I do not clean or hire a cleaning service in Salt Lake City to clean for me a portion of that energy will be dissipated in anxiety. If my thinking is scattered I loose whatever remaining energy I have because I cannot effectively focus it towards being productive. This is why I have found that by simply taking the time to keep my living space clean I will actually increase my productivity in the long term.

The Short Inside Scoop on how to Avoid Men Developing Cold Feet before a Wedding

wedding_33Warning to all Salt Lake City Brides! The following might come off a little sexist and is probably not what a bride wants to read. But if she is concerned about her groom developing cold feet before their wedding she would do well to consider the following.

Planning the Wedding Itself

First of all, researching wedding venues in Salt Lake City can give any man cold feet.  As such, I firmly believe all or most wedding planning should be done by the bride or at least someone other than the groom. If the bride truly wants to minimize the chances of the groom developing cold feet before the ceremony she would do well to take this under advisement.

This is especially true if the bride and groom are paying for the wedding as the cost of a wedding can be very expensive. The average cost of a wedding in the United States is $26,444.00 and the average cost of a wedding in Salt Lake City is roughly half that amount at $13,365.00. Still that is a large chunk of change for most people.

Another reason a groom might get cold feet when researching wedding venues is the thought of who to invite, where they all will sit and who they will sit next to. This is a massive headache because (and I am speaking from experience) almost every decision made regarding planning the wedding will result in at least one relative or friend being offended. I do not know why this happens specifically with respect to wedding planning. I would think most people would be happy for the young couple and put aside their own concerns but for some mysterious reason this just is not the case. Long story short; keep the groom out of all these decisions.

The Longer Term

The other factor influencing the development of cold feet is the groom dwelling on the long term reality of marriage. Men (particularly men younger than their mid 30’s) will propose to a woman thinking everything is going to be great. But as the wedding date approaches the reality of his decision to propose will loom ever larger. One way to minimize any fear based thoughts that may lead to cold feet is to schedule the wedding date as soon as possible after the proposal. If this is an impossibility, the bride to be should do everything in her power to distract the groom from thinking about the long term in the run up to the wedding. What the most effective distraction is will vary from groom to groom but this is probably knowledge the bride should have before looking for wedding venues in Salt Lake City. Good luck!
