Many of us lack the motivation to get ourselves to clean up our home on a regular basis, many will deny it but if it weren’t true Life Maid Easy wouldn’t have a need to exist.
Cleaning can be boring or even annoying at times but it needs to be done and at the end of the day cleaning and decluttering has been known to have psychological benefits but we won’t get further into that.
Instead, we shall share with you some tricks you can use to help motivate yourself to clean your home and if that doesn’t do the job then there is always the easy solution.
- Break your Cleaning Duties down into smaller tasks Help get past procrastination by breaking up a big task into smaller ones because even when you complete the smallest or simplest of tasks you end up with a rewarding feeling inside that motivates you to continue on.
- Set a specified amount of time for yourself
A great way to get yourself to clean at least a little bit is to set an amount of time that you will use to do nothing other than clean, even if it is just 10 minutes but that will be 10 minutes that you know you will use to focus on cleaning.
Many times you will actually be so surprised at how much you were able to get done in that little amount of time that it will motivate you to continue cleaning.
- Knock down all barriers Sometimes just feeling too lazy to walk all the way to the other side of your home to take the broom out of the closet then come back to this side can be the barrier to stop you from cleaning so if you know you need to clean a certain room at some time soon just take the items when you are in a more motivational mood and leave it in the place that needs to be cleaned that way when it is time you have no excuses to use as barriers.
- Make it a habit of doing certain things at certain times
Instead of trying to motivate yourself to sweep when it needs to be done or do anything else when it needs to be done, set a specific time and date weekly for you to do that task and force yourself to do it.
For example, you will sweep the living room every Wednesday at 9:00 AM or you will clean the bathroom every Sunday at 2:00 PM.
In time you will eventually make it into a habit and it will naturally become a part of your weekly routine and you won’t even think twice or try to find any excused to avoid doing it.
