This can be a major problem, because no one wants to do something they are obligated to. The mind works that way and it is very hard to overcome it. For example, if you’re forced to perform a certain action your mind automatically makes you think it is unpleasant.
How To Change Your Attitude Towards Cleaning
Have you noticed that when you don’t like something that has to be done you tend to get distracted quite easily. Moreover you get tired fast and in the end find more interesting things to do. The same is with cleaning, so in order for things to go smoothly you have to think how you can change your attitude. There are a few simple tricks you can use but I can’t guarantee they’ll work, I have friends who still hate cleaning no matter what.
The first step is to understand the importance of cleaning and start accepting it as something that is good for you. If you keep your home clean you prevent the developing of harmful bacteria and reduce allergies. It is proven that clean people are more successful at their work in comparison to people who clean rarely. If this doesn’t help, trick yourself by preparing some prize when you’re done with a chore.
I really hated cleaning the wall-to-wall carpet at the living room, therefore before I start I used to prepare some French fries. And I told myself that one I’m done with the carpet I can eat them, you can try something similar. It can be anything, from food you rarely eat to a massage or manicure at the beauty salon. If you’re a sports person make cleaning a race for example give yourself ten minutes to wipe the floor in the hall and try to beat that time.
Are you ready to begin? Here are some useful tips you can use in order to fasten the cleaning process and not feel so tired at the end of the day. First open all windows because your greatest enemy is the lack of oxygen. It is proven that cleaning the entire house is better than going to the gym, you burn more calories because more muscle groups are involved. Did I catch your attention now? So make your home a personal gym and start working out.
Do not attempt multitasking because you’ll end up exhausted and the things won’t be completely finished. The best tactic is to divide the room you’re cleaning into small areas and do them one after the other. That way you’ll see the results momentarily and become more motivated. The same applies for the carpet in your living room, when you're cleaning it is better to divide it, otherwise you risk over-shampooing or over-wetting it.
The same applies for area rugs which can be quite big, as for the doormats you can even machine wash them. Don't forget to open the windows so your carpet can dry faster. As I said before all those methods might not work on you, therefore people made carpet cleaning companies.
