SPRING CLEANING time will be here soon, Wednesday March 20th.. . . you know, that thing most of us talk about doing every year but don't actually do,

Maybe you should this year though.  Because according to a new study, it might make you happier, and we can all use more of that. At last I can.

StudyFinds.org  reports researchers polled 2,000 people, and found that every hour of cleaning you do each week is associated with a 53% boost in overall happiness.

It's not clear what the upper limit is on it, but there's gotta be one.  Try cleaning for 40 hours a week, and see how happy you feel about it.)
