Everyone can use a little motivation to tackle their chores. It’s normal to want to avoid cleaning tasks. After all, most people don’t enjoy cleaning at all!
Maybe your schedule is too tight to spend time cleaning, or you feel under the weather. Also, getting back on track can be a challenge when you put the cleaning routine on hold for whatever reason. However, simple tricks can help you motivate yourself to clean!
Here are a few ways you can raise your cleaning motivation.
1. Clean in short bursts of 15 minutes
Cleaning a home from top to bottom might require more time than most people are ready to spend on housework. This fact can demotivate any homeowner. However, what if cleaning takes you only 15 minutes? If your list of pending cleaning tasks is too long, a timer can help you!
Set a timer for 15 minutes and clean until it goes off. After that short period, you are free to do whatever you want.
It really works:
With this technique, the task ahead will seem shorter than it is. Also, you’ll make some progress during that time, rather than neglecting the cleaning completely!
2. Schedule and write down your cleaning tasks
Sometimes, you only need a plan. Usually, people don’t give a thought to their cleaning routine because it’s something they’ve been doing forever. However, approaching cleaning this way can make it feel chaotic.
On the other hand, chores might seem more manageable if you approach your cleaning routine with a schedule! A simple way to do it is to break down every single cleaning task and write it down as a list. Pick a couple of tasks and assign them a deadline!
3. Play some music while you clean
For decades, people have believed that listening to music can somehow improve your productivity—or even your intelligence. Sure, it’s ok if music makes you a better cleaner, but the purpose of listening to music while cleaning is a bit different: you won’t get bored!
Some people find repetitive cleaning chores relaxing, but cleaning can be really boring for others. However, you can solve this issue by doing other things you enjoy while cleaning your home. Music works, but it can be a podcast, the news, an audiobook, you name it!
4. Declutter before cleaning!
If you don’t feel like cleaning, maybe you should declutter first. Living in an untidy and cluttered home is not only overwhelming, but it can also make the cleaning chores more difficult—literally! The more stuff you have scattered around, the more surfaces you’ll need to clean.
Besides, decluttering can impact you positively in different ways! So, if you feel under the weather, getting rid of the clutter could help.
