But don’t worry, we all do this from time to time. After a long, hard and stressful day at work, it’s not like cleaning out the toilet bowl and scrubbing the floors ranks highly on the list of things you want to do that evening. But believe it or not, there are a few little tips and tricks that work a treat and can actually turn cleaning into an enjoyable and even pleasurable task. Yes, you heard… cleaning can actually be quite fun! Just read on to find out what you can do to spice things up when it comes to cracking on with that dreaded cleaning…
Turn up the music!
That’s right. First things first. Whack on your iTunes, plug in the speakers and turn the volume up on full blast. Nothing gets you in the mood for cleaning more than a selection of all your favourite pumping, energizing and uplifting tunes. Dance while you clean. Show your mop and hoover some of your best moves. And none of that soppy, romantic stuff. Make sure you make a cleaning playlist made up of only the funkiest beats to keep you cleaning till the sun goes down!
Keep on moving!
On a similar note, don’t stop what you’re doing… not even for a second! Get into the swing of things and really start to enjoy the cleaning. See it as a marathon… you’ve just got to get to the end! Keeping on your toes for the time it takes you to get your house spick and span will also help you to burn off those nasty little calories from the piece of cake you regretted eating after lunch. So dance, jump, twirl… anything. Just don’t stop.
Race to the finish and claim your reward!
As mentioned before, you are on a marathon and the only way to win is by powering through and getting the job done good and proper. I find it always helps to set myself a cheeky incentive. Run yourself a warm, bubbly sensual bath tub before you start the cleaning. Make sure the water is the nice and warm, with all your favourite bath salts just melting away, calling out your name. Now you know that when you finish the cleaning (and I mean all the cleaning!) you have a very special reward just waiting for you.
And for those times when you really can’t face it…
So let’s be realistic here. There’s always going to be those times when you just cannot handle cleaning your house. And that’s okay, it happens to the best of us. Luckily for you there are plenty of professional house cleaners who will be more than happy to pop by and take the pressures of day to day life off your hands by doing all your cleaning for you.
