April Feature: Spring Cleaning & Organization
I don’t know about you but I hate cleaning! Trying to get the motivation to get off the couch and clean the house is a major task for me personally. It can be hard to find motivation to clean the house especially on a day that is sunny and warm outside. (But, I don’t wanna clean!) I never let my house get out of control messy but once I reach the point of annoyance with it, I have to clean it! Cleaning isn’t very much fun unless you are Monica from Friends and obsess over clean and organized home-but who really is? When it comes to cleaning house, how do we get motivated? I will start off by telling you how I get myself motivated and focused on cleaning:
- Turn off my devices: Phones, laptop and tv. Wouldn’t want to get myself distracted.
- Turn on some music. I love to sing and dance around the house while cleaning. I find it therapeutic!
- Set aside a certain time of day to clean and give yourself a deadline. I will clean the entire house in an hour…and GO!
- After you are done cleaning, TREAT YO SELF!. Treat yourself to a pedicure or a shopping trip. Seriously, reward yourself for the job you did!
What is something that helps motivate you to clean?
