How to Motivate Yourself to Clean a Messy Home

We’re not going to try to persuade you that cleaning a cluttered house is pleasurable. A tiresome to-do list is the polar opposite of a good time, unless you’re a hyper-organized person who enjoys alphabetizing their bookshelves.

Regrettably, we are all responsible for our own trash removal. Professional cleaners have created a list of tactics that will almost likely deceive you into cleaning your property to make it a bit less uncomfortable. These shortcuts are what some of us need to keep our houses in a semi-livable state, from “lifehacks” that allow you to bypass the part of your brain that loves to postpone to time-saving tactics.

Break it down into smaller tasks

According to a 2015 study, one strategy for overcoming procrastination is to divide down a huge project into smaller portions. This is due to the psychological benefits of simply completing a task, no matter how tiny.

So, simplify the cleaning procedure into simple steps: Purchase cleaning supplies one day, sweep the living room floor the next, clean the kitchen counters the next, and so on. You’ll have a better chance of finishing the project this way than if you try to finish it in one afternoon.

Remove any obstacles to being clean

You’ll be delighted to clean some days and not so much the next. It has to do with how people are motivated.

BJ Fogg, a psychologist, stated in a 2012 speech that while you are motivated to clean, you should do all you can to make cleaning easier when you are not.

If you have a lot of motivation, for example, you should buy cleaning supplies, unpack them, and keep the broom and dustpan next to your bed. That way, all you have to do when you come home from work is grab the Wellington cleaners that are right in front of you to get started.

Set a 10-minute timer for yourself

Redditors agree with this suggestion. “I set a 10-minute timer and see how much I can get done in that time,” one guy explained. It generally inspires me to keep working after the timer beeps, but even if it doesn’t, I’ve done something.”

Make a deal with yourself, says procrastination expert Timothy A. Pychyl, that even if you don’t like doing the task, you’ll do it for 10 minutes anyhow. If you’ve made some progress, leaving will be less appealing.

To find out what’s junk, tidy half the room or go through one stack of documents. You can be so pleased with yourself that you continue for another hour.

Keep in mind that you are not obligated to clean if you do not choose to.

In a Harvard Business Review article from 2014, psychologist Heidi Grant Halvorson offers advise from Oliver Burkeman’s book “The Antidote.”

“Who says you have to wait till you’re ‘in the mood’ to accomplish anything before you get started?” Burkeman is perplexed.

In other words, you don’t have to be driven or dedicated to work as a cleaner, though it would be nice if you were. All you have to do now is complete the mission.

Recognize that it is acceptable to delegate your responsibilities.

Perhaps you assume it would be cumbersome or inefficient to hire cleaners for you. Give it a go and see what you think.

In 2015, Business Insider’s Jacqui Kenyon discussed how she sent her laundry to a wash-and-fold service since it isn’t that much more expensive than doing it herself and saves a lot of time and energy.

Finally, if you genuinely want a clean apartment and know you’ll never put cleaning ahead of work or socializing, this could be the best option.

Make advantage of if-then scenarios in your planning.

In the same Harvard Business Review article, Halvorson explores “if-then planning” and why it works. You give yourself precise directions on where and when you will sweep, rather than attempting to gather the determination to sweep twice a week.

For example, if it’s noon on Sunday, I’ll get out the broom and clean the living room.

Think about whether you actually need to clean right now.

There are more productive ways to spend your time and energy than keeping your home clean, despite all of the benefits.

According to Paul Dolan, a behavioral scientist and author of “Happiness by Design,” it’s critical to determine whether a clean environment would genuinely make you happier.

Hiring a professional can help you save time and effort.

The End of Tenancy Cleaning service varies from regular or spring cleaning in that it involves cleaning the entire home. It necessitates a significant commitment of time and energy, which the tenant may not have due to the numerous tasks that must be completed while moving out.

As a consequence, hiring a low-cost end of tenancy cleaning service is a good idea. It will dispatch two to three professionals to inspect the property, commence work, and complete it in a matter of hours. While the cleaners are at work, you may take care of other moving-related activities or attend to your family’s needs.
