After coming home from today’s events, I would rather curl up on my reading couch, play calming music, light up some candles and essential oils, and drink green tea, while clearing my mind of every thought.
This is what I wish. But no. I come home, I need to prepare a light snack and before I can even move in the kitchen I need to wash the dishes… Yes! Dish washing is for everyone.
Dish washing as a stress reliever
I make it sound like a difficult chore, but it’s really not. Especially if you watch these tips.
But why am I telling you all of these? Because you and I should start to love dish washing. Because a study done at the Florida State University found out that dish washing calms the mind.
The reason behind this is because dish washing is, “A meditative method of focusing attention on the emotions and thoughts of the present moment.”
So next time you feel like not doing dish washing because you feel like it’s a chore, remember this study! Dish washing, when done mindfully, can be a stress reliever. Take it from this research, you would be glad you did it.
Happy dish washing everyone! 😀
