How to Love Cleaning
Houses get dirty. There’s no way around it. But cleaning up after your pets, your family, and yourself doesn’t have to be a burden.
Everyone who lives in the house should be responsible for keeping it clean. Having a group cleaning session can build camaraderie and bring you closer together. You won’t think of it as cleaning, it’ll be closer to a team building exercise!
Having conversations, singing music together, and making jokes about the things you find can make cleaning enjoyable. It’ll feel less like a chore and more like spending time with loved ones.
Cleaning isn’t usually something we look forward to, but if you promise yourself a night out or an episode of your favorite show once you get everything done, you’re going to want to jump right in!
Like a clean home and a sense of accomplishment weren’t rewarding enough!
Think of It as Meditation
Cleaning can be stressful, but it still has to be done. When you view cleaning as a form of meditation, it can become a relaxing and enjoyable activity. Cleaning allows you to clear your head and focus on the repetitive tasks you are performing.
It can also become a mindless activity if you allow yourself to zone out. This can reduce stress and give you peace of mind.
However, this isn’t the case for everyone. If you get anxious about cleaning or feel overwhelmed when looking at all the work that has to be done, consider taking CBD oil to relax you.
Listen to Something
Nothing takes your mind off stressful, repetitive tasks quite like playing your favorite music. It’ll help you de-stress and have fun! You might even forget you’re cleaning and start dancing!
If you’re not in the mood for music, playing a podcast or audiobook can also distract you just enough to get through the cleaning process. Call a friend and catch up if you can do two things at once.
Think of It as a Workout
A 150 lb. person doing intense housework (like mopping or vacuuming) for one hour can burn about 300 calories! If you love working out, cleaning has all the benefits of an exercise routine with the added bonus of having a clean house afterward!
Skip the gym! Clean your house instead!
