Get Motivated: Tips To Get Those Chores Done!
Everyone loves a clean house but sometimes the most difficult part is justgetting started! We get so overwhelmed with kids, work, school, pets, etc thatwhen we finally get the time to do those chores that have been piling up wejust lack motivation. Here are a few tips to get you up and moving andfeeling proud of your home again.?? Create a “Cleaning Playlist” ??That perfect collection of songs that make you want to get up and dance! Getthe kids and turn up the music! Dancing and singing can make the time go byfaster and when you are having fun it doesn’t feel like doing “chores”.Pick 3 Chores to focus onWhat are the 3 chores that you have been avoiding? Thoseones that really get on your nerves. That stack of mail on yourdining room table? That pile of laundry that keeps gettingtaller? The kids bathroom? When you get behind andoverwhelmed, make a list of three chores. When you completeeach one make sure you cross it off your list. This will makeyou feel productive and keep you going! If you have help, it iseven better! Give everyone 3 chores each and you will bedone in no time!Get those machines running!You’ll be amazed how productive you feel by just startingStarting your machines. Throw a load of laundry in thewasher. Finish filling the dishwasher and get it started. Bustout the vacuum cleaner. Wow, look at that, you are alreadywell on your way down your list!Rearrange a roomRearranging furniture can completely change the look andfeeling of a room! It also forces you to clean under and behind pieces thatmay not have been seen in a while. Clean as you go and then sit and enjoyyour new room knowing that it is finally “deep cleaned”.Set a timerThis is a tip that I find particularly helpful when getting the kids to help. Ifyou set a timer for 20 mins, 30 mins, or even an hour, it takes the stress off ofthinking these chores are going to take up your whole day. You can even seta “20 minute tidy up” timer every evening before bed to make sure you wakeup to a tidy house every morning!Make your bed EVERY daySomething as simple as making your bed every day makes all the differencewhen it comes to keeping your room clean. It makes everything feel cleanerand keeps those decorative pillows off the floor. Now all you need is a quickdust and vacuum and you can enjoy your quiet space.These are just a few tips to get you motivated to keep up with your chores.
