It might be hard to believe but studies show that spending money can actually make you happier. Here’s the catch though: Spending money on time saving services, such as a maid service, brings people more joy than spending money on an actual item.
“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 leave the chores you don’t particularly enjoy doing to someone else your stress is reduced with many people admitting that they felt much less pressed for time. Now you can spend your precious evenings doing the things you love, like devoting your whole night to learning how to play that ukulele you bought on a whim last year, or maybe you finally have the free time to train your dog to fetch you the remote. There’s a lot of options out there that are way more fun than cleaning!
These are the cold hard facts, studies don’t lie (or maybe they do, but this one seems legit). We know you may feel guilty doing a job that you’re technically capable of doing, but sometimes the guilt may just be worth it. And hey, you can always soak away that feeling in a nice hot bubble bath, because guess what? You now have the time to! Life is short so why not enjoy it while and if you can. Pay for a maid service, see amazing results and mark one more thing off your to do list!
