National No Housework Day gives you an excuse to relax Posted on April 1, 2017 under Blog. | no comments.
National No Housework Day is coming up on April 7th, giving you a great excuse to avoid the household chores and just relax.
After a long day of work and battling the traffic to get home, housework can add to an already stressful day.
On an average day, 22 percent of employed men still perform household chores, spending about 2.1 hours. However, 70 percent of employed women perform about 2.6 hours housework on an average day, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
Even if you’re retired, work from home or are a stay-at-home parent, keeping up with running a household can be difficult. Many people are also trying to take care of their kids or their elderly parents, and some are taking care of both.
Everyone deserves a day off and time to relax. You may be surprised how skipping chores for a day could make you feel less stressed.
National No Housework Day – How Champion Cleaners can help
However, some worry that skipping a day will mean more work another day. That’s where your local dry cleaner can help. Have them do some of the work.
To make sure you fully take advantage of the National No Housework Day, drop off your clothes and other items at Champion Cleaners. Don’t even think about them until after your chore-free day.

If you are feeling guilty, here are a few quotes that might make you feel a little better about skipping housework:

“If the shelves are dusty and the pots don’t shine,
it’s because I have better things to do with my time.”
