We all want to have clean houses, right?! Sometimes it’s just the actual cleaning part we don’t particularly enjoy. So to help us feel more motivated this week, I decided to make a fun list for you!
Top 10 Ways to Make Cleaning More Fun!
1) Listen to Music.
Music is probably the fastest and easiest way to add a little energy into your home! Use Pandora and listen to something upbeat while you clean. Make sure to sing along as loudly as you want!
2) Enjoy Podcasts & Audio Books.
Turning on Podcasts while you clean is a great way to catch up on inspiring shows! Here are a few of my own favorites:
Entreleadership by Dave Ramsey’s team
Living Inspired with Tricia Goyer
A Slob Comes Clean by Dana White
You could also listen to great audio books! I usually download them for FREE from Loyal Books or pick some up when I visit the library. The girls and I are currently enjoying Mr. Popper’s Penguins while I clean – it makes decluttering feel much cozier!
3) Complete One Tiny Task.
Sometimes the hardest part of cleaning is just starting. So only commit to something small like taking dirty clothes to the washing machine or unloading the dishwasher.
If you only do that one task, you’ve made progress. But you may find that it’s not so bad and you can do one more small task, then another…
4) Find Support.
Don’t get pulled into the Internet! But, do spend a few minutes checking out FlyLady.net or reading an article on my blog if you need extra cleaning inspiration.
You can also join an online support group, work through a great housekeeping book, or photograph your progress on Instagram using #GetOrganizedChallenge.
