Keeping your home in good condition can be hard. After all, the last thing you want to do when you come home from work is clean. So, after a couple of days of not being interested in cleaning, there is a good chance that this mess might add up. However, this is a bad habit to fall into. Before you know it, the mess is so big that it is going to be a big pain to clean up. Therefore, some small, consistent cleans are the best way to stay on top of your home cleaning rota. People might find it hard to get into this habit when they don’t love cleaning, however. If so, then you might need to make some changes to make cleaning a little more bearable. If you are curious as to how one might do that, consider the following. 

Taking Breaks 

If you have a big mess in front of you, there is a good chance you are not going to get through it in 10 minutes. Therefore, you are going to have to dedicate time to having a healthy-looking home. This doesn’t mean that you must work hard for hours straight. To save you from being overwhelmed and unhappy, make sure you are taking plenty of breaks during the clean. This doesn’t mean just stopping to eat some food or sit down. Do something else for some time to freshen up your mind. An example of this could be online gaming at or reading a couple of pages of a great book. Once you have done this, you will be ready to go again. Just make sure that you are setting a strict time limit on your break, as you could get carried away with the time and then ditch the cleaning before you’re finished. 


When it comes to the actual cleaning itself, you don’t have to just sit there in silence while you clean. Music can be a great way to get your energy levels up and make cleaning more fun. Although the task is going to be the same, the atmosphere is going to change a lot. This can in turn change your mindset and give you a healthier relationship with cleaning the home. You could also have a little dance while you clean to make it a fun experience.

Make Plans for After 

If you are really dreading cleaning and are doing it too slowly, then this is only going to make things worse. One way you can overcome this is by making plans for after your cleaning session. Ask to meet up with a friend or even just sit down to watch a football match. If it excites you, it is going to motivate you to get more done in a shorter time. Don’t allow yourself to go through with the plans until you have finished cleaning. This means you are going to be eager to get the job done, so you can go out and have fun.
