Want to Be Happy? Buy More Takeout and Hire a Maid, Study Suggests

As you know, science has already proven that a clean home makes you healthier and happier. But now, with this story, you’ll realize that on top of that, hiring a professional cleaning staff comes with additional benefits.

The researchers found that those that open their wallets to save time by hiring others to do less desirable chores actually improve happiness by reducing stress.

Ashley Whillans, an assistant professor at the Harvard Business School and lead author of the study, says “People who spent money to buy themselves time, such as by outsourcing disliked tasks, reported greater overall life satisfaction.”

If you think about it, it makes perfect sense. By putting these tasks in the hands of professionals, you’re gaining much more time and energy to dedicate to your personal growth and mental wellbeing.

Depending on how you run your household, you could easily spend 10 hours a week or more cleaning your home.

So science confirms. Dallas Maids makes you happy!
