The old adage is true: money can’t buy happiness. But what it can buy you is time and peace of mind. As a business owner, taking things off your ever-growing to do list – and knowing that those things are still done well – can help to make your overall life more pleasant. So while money can’t buy happiness itself, there are ways to use it wisely, increase your quality of life, and fulfillment at work.
A new study shows that reducing your workload and delegating tasks can reduce your overall stress level. Unsurprisingly, one of the benefits of a reduced stress level is reported levels of happiness. Spending money to save time can help you decrease your stress levels. And we’ll let you in on a little secret – spending money to hire an expert will also mean the job is done thoroughly and correctly the first time, reducing your stress levels even further.
We’ve written before about how employees can be more productive when cleaning tasks aren’t part of their daily routine. The truth is, they’re likely to be happier as well. Happy employees can spend more time with your customers and provide them with a higher quality of customer service. Similarly, customers may feel better about walking into your space and may dawdle, taking extra time to review your products and services. Allowing these two groups time in a clean space increases your opportunities of making a sale. At the end of the day, happier employees and customers leads to potentially higher revenues, making you happier…it’s all one big path to happiness.
We’re over simplifying a bit, of course. The truth is money really can’t buy happiness. But what it can do is provide you with the ability to take some work off your plate. Isn’t that time alone worth it? We all have a lot on our schedules and many people are looking for work to delegate. We can help you manage your commercial cleaning needs while giving you a much needed chance to put your feet up and relax. We’re even providing you with the science that can help you justify the time spent relaxing – science says it will decrease your stress levels. If that trickles down to your employees and customers, so much the better.
