Time To Unwind.
Cleaning and organizing your home can be exhausting, despite what some think. It's not an easy, mundane task. When people hear words like "homemaker", they laugh and mention how they'd kill for a job like that. Little do they know, organizing and keeping up with daily chores is hard work. We totally get that!
There are things people do that make the burden of cleaning and organizing harder than it needs to be. It's easy to get tired or stressed and tell ourselves, "I'll do the dishes later," or "I'll pick that up in a few hours." How could we possibly clean when our emotions are running wild in that moment? We get it, and sure it does feel nice not having to do ANYTHING when we feel stressed.
Try to avoid this habit. Those few tasks actually add up pretty quickly and before we know it, at the end of the day we have an entire list of things we said we'd do later. It's not a good feeling when 'later' has become now. Regardless of what is happening that day, in the end, the tasks have to be completed. It's better to do them as you go, rather than wait and let the list get longer.
As You Go.
Cleaning as you go really does make things so much easier. Sometimes we let our emotions dampen your mood for cleaning. Don't let that happen! Here's a list of things that are easy to do as you go, but will truly leave us feeling much more lifted through out the day!
By starting these new habits you will greatly reduce the amount of time spent cleaning and organizing. Every time we "walk away" from a task we are wasting the seconds we used to "walk away." It is a hard habit to start but give it a try for a week or two and you will notice a difference. It is also a good way to set "House Rules" and have the whole family pitch in.
