Let’s be honest here. Cleaning is nobody’s idea of fun. That is unless you are Monica from the hit TV show Friends. Running a household is tough. So how do people get their homes so clean? What can you do to motivate yourself? With that in mind, here are some motivational ideas that are bound to help you get those household chores done in record time.
Getting The Housework Done In Record Time: Your Guide To Do It
Switch the music on loud
One of the first sure fire ways of feeling pumped to tackle those chores is to put on some music. The louder, the better in my opinion. It could be anything as long as it has a decent beat to it. Even better, make it something you can sing along to. There is something about the music that just makes you want to move, so use this new found energy and clean or tackle a chore. You may want to clean down the surfaces or combat the bathroom. Whatever the job may be, I guarantee music will help you do it faster.
Invest in your appliances
There is nothing quite like getting new appliances for your chores. It can be the motivation itself just to try them out and see how they work. These days you can even get vacuums that do the job for you. If that isn’t motivation for you, then what is? Why not look here for some more information. Sometimes having the right tools for the job makes those chores lighter and more bearable. So don’t be afraid to invest in some of them to help you get those jobs done quicker. However, you may also want to repair current appliances rot ensure that they work efficiently, as we do need things to continue working. This is when knowing about the right parts such as parts to fix a GE fridge or for specific tools for Whirlpool washing machines. Experts can help you as long as you know the make and model of the appliance that needs fixing.
Don’t tackle them on the same day
One of the biggest problems with household chores is how many do we need to do. There seems to be a never ending list of jobs that just need finishing or cleaning. So the best piece of advice is not to tackle them all in one day. This is when you feel overwhelmed and instead of doing a good job you tackle those chores halfheartedly. A cleaning schedule is a great way to spread the household chores out across your week. This way everything gets done and maintained regularly. Keeping you motivated to stay on track.
Set a timer
Sometimes it is the length of time some of the chores can take that can be quite off putting. So why not set yourself a timer? Allow yourself five minutes of clean up time, or 30 minutes to a particular job. When it’s over, have a cup of tea or start something else. You are more likely to keep your focus than feeling bored.
The promise of a reward
Finally, one of the best ways to stay motivated is to provide yourself with a reward at the end. This could be another from a five minute sit down with a warm drink, to a hot relaxing bath at the end of the day. The reward is guaranteed to keep you on track to get everything done that is needed.
Let’s hope these ideas help you complete those household chores in record time.
