LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA - The whole world is staying at home to help "flatten the curve" in response to direction from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the World Health Organization and in compliance with stay-at-home orders put in place to control the spread of #COVID-19.

People are practicing self-distancing (staying 6 feet away from others) wearing masks and washing their hands for 20 seconds to do their part to stay healthy and help prevent the spread of infection to others.

But being stuck at home has its downsides. What can you do at home to feel happy or useful? 

Believe it or not, you can clean!

In The Way to Happinesshumanitarian and Scientology Founder L. Ron Hubbard wrote, "few are unhappier than those who lead a purposeless, idle and bored existence... Sorrow itself can be eased by simply getting busy at something. Morale is boosted to high highs by accomplishment. In fact, it can be demonstrated that production is the basis of morale."

But what does this have to do with cleaning?

According to an online poll of 2,000 American adults conducted by Clorox, those who enjoyed cleaning are 25 percent happier than those who do not. Furthermore:

  • For each extra hour of cleaning a week the average respondent's happiness increased by 53 percent
  • 80 percent of people say they feel more relaxed when their home is clean 
  • 77 percent feel more focused
  • 72 percent sleep better 
  • 72 percent said they're more productive
  • 60 percent of parents say their kids are able to study better when their room is clean
  • And 49 percent say the kids behave better too.

Keeping your home clean has taken on added significance in the midst of this pandemic. It is an important part of prevention… and prevention is important.

The Church of Scientology has created its How to Stay Well Prevention Resource Center to prevent the spread of illness and help people keep themselves and others well.

With the motto, "an ounce of prevention is worth a ton of cure," the website includes information on how viruses and bacteria spread, how to properly wash your hands, the correct use of masks and gloves, social distancing tips, how to clean and sanitize your home, and what to do if you become sick or have symptoms.

The website is available in 17 languages and is offered as a public service by the Church of Scientology.
