Clean up your act!


wpid-wp-1422752102535.jpegHousehold chores are a necessary part of life, so my advice to you is to make the best of it, rather than putting it off and dreading what you do!

Put those headphones on and get started on those toilets or floors!  Putting music on while you clean will help to lighten your mood!!!  If you approach your task with a negative attitude, you are either not going to do it, or you’ll do it, but not well, and you’ll hate it!

Okay, so first, figure out which days you can devote 1-2 hours of cleaning to, then make a note of it in your schedule.  Actually making a note of it will help you to keep to this schedule.

My weekly tasks consist of floors, bathrooms, and the kitchen.

 I like to separate my week into two, one-to-two hour cleaning blocks. If you do it in the evenings, divide it into three-to-four half hour to one hour blocks.  I like to do my floors on Monday after we use the weekend to get them all dirty! (This way also, I don’t worry about how dirty they get on the weekend as I know I will get to them on Monday.)  I then do my bathrooms and kitchen on my second cleaning day.

I may have mentioned this before, but if you stick to a weekly cleaning schedule your tasks shouldn’t be considered “heavy” cleaning and shouldn’t use too much elbow grease.  I find the longer you leave a space the harder it is to clean it. My weekly cleaning is more just maintenance,wiping down and disinfecting surfaces.

Setting attainable goals helps, but a positive attitude and anything such as music to lighten your mood also helps the sometimes “dreaded” task get done!

So, if you are tackling these jobs during the day, put on those headphones and clean to your favourite playlists!  Or, if you do it in the evenings, pour yourself a glass of wine (if that’s your thing!!), and get to it!

Keep positive and clean on!
