Do you feel stressed out by the idea of having a dirty home, but find that the thought of cleaning it yourself only adds to your stress? It's easy to get caught in an endless cycle of procrastination when it comes to tackling your cleaning checklist. Don't worry, you're not alone! At Zerorez®, we know that cleaning can feel like a daunting task, but we're here to help with our 7 tips for cleaning procrastinators:
Break it down
Instead of tackling everything at once, simplify your cleaning tasks by breaking them down into smaller, more manageable chunks. This will help you avoid that overwhelmed feeling and give you a better idea of where or how to get started.
Set a timer
Set a timer for a specific amount of time, say 20 or 30 minutes, and clean as much as you can in that time. Not only does that offer minimize your commitment, but it also gives you an allotted amount of time to just focus your attention on the cleaning at hand. You'll be surprised at how much you can get done in a short amount of time.
Start with the easy stuff
Start with the cleaning tasks that are quick and simple, like dusting or wiping down countertops. This task will go by quickly, and it helps you dip your toe into cleaning with something that makes a big difference despite the minimal amount of effort. This will help you build momentum and motivate you to tackle the bigger tasks.
Get rid of clutter
Clutter can make cleaning more difficult and time-consuming. The more stuff you have, the harder it becomes to find a place for everything. Spend some time decluttering and purging the items you no longer need or use to free up storage space.
Don't be afraid to ask for help from family members or friends. Cleaning can be more enjoyable and less daunting when done together. Whether you live on your own or with others, asking for help can build your relationships and allow you to spend quality time with the people you love.
Use the right tools
Having the right cleaning tools can make all the difference. Invest in quality cleaning products and equipment that will make cleaning easier and more effective. Using eco and pet-friendly cleaning supplies can keep your home healthy and happy!
