Tips & Tricks: Staying motivated whilst cleaning

Spring cleaning can be a bit of a chore especially when after spending thirty minutes of your time moving furniture, you then have to clean it. Staying motivated is a task in itself; here are just some tips to keep you cleaning.

Before you even begin to pick up a mop and duster do two things. Plan what you’re going to clean and dedicate your time appropriately to different tasks, and then wash your face. It may sound silly but washing your face before you start cleaning will wake you up and ensure that you will maintain the motivation to finish the task you have set yourself.

Other tips include promising yourself a reward for when you finish, whether this is a bar of chocolate, a decent meal or a relaxing bath knowing that you have something to look forward to at the end of your day cleaning will encourage you to get to the end.

Music is another great way to stay on task when cleaning. A number of genres suit the task depending on whether you want ambience to instill a sense of calm or rock to keep you upbeat. Here are just a few suggestions of some good songs to clean to:
1) Dude Looks Like a Lady-Aerosmith
2) Blue Monday- New Order
3) Start Me Up- The Rolling Stones
4) Pump It- The Black Eyed Peas
5) I Feel Good- James Brown
