Springtime is upon us and that means it’s time for spring cleaning! For many people, the very thought of spring cleaning is enough to send them into a tailspin. After all, who wants to spend their precious weekend time scrubbing toilets and cleaning out closets?
But there are actually quite a few people who find joy in spring cleaning. For them, it’s a chance to start fresh, to get rid of the old and bring in the new. It’s a time to declutter and simplify. And it can be therapeutic, too.
If you’re someone who dreads spring cleaning, here are a few tips to make it a little more bearable:
1. Make a plan. Don’t just start randomly cleaning things. Decide what needs to be done and make a list. That way you won’t forget anything and you’ll feel a sense of accomplishment as you check things off your list.
2. Set a timer. It’s easy to get bogged down when you’re cleaning. So set a timer for each task you need to do. That way you won’t spend hours cleaning one thing and neglect other areas.
3. enlist help. Spring cleaning can be more fun if you do it with someone else. Ask a friend or family member to help you and make it a team effort.
4. Take breaks. Cleaning can be tiring, so make sure to take breaks. Take a few minutes to sit down and rest when you need to. And don’t forget to eat and drink plenty of water to keep your energy up.
5. Reward yourself. When you’re finished with your spring cleaning, treat yourself to something you enjoy. Take a long bath, read your favorite book or watch a movie. You deserve it!
