There is a reason why many consider cleaning the house part of the daily chores. Chores are not things people often look forward to and many consider it with dread and apprehension. One way to battle these fears is through creating a cleaning routine. It helps to organize your cleaning and keeps you from getting overwhelmed.
What is a Cleaning Routine?
At its most simple, a cleaning routine is just a series of tasks that you choose to do during a particular time of day. You can have daily routines, weekly routines and others set up however you want. The key is to make sure and stick with it. If you don’t, then it doesn’t really make it much of a routine. Routines are good because if you do them long enough they just become part of your day. You end up cleaning and don’t even realize you’re doing it. It’s just part of life like waking up and eating breakfast.
Daily and Weekly Routines
One of the key aspects of a cleaning routine is setting things up in required intervals. Daily routines are those small things that you can almost do without thinking such as doing the nightly dishes or tidying up around the living room. They’re small tasks that need to be done every day. Weekly routines are those more difficult tasks that need to be done, but not necessarily every day. Vacuuming or dusting might be considered weekly tasks. Also, all weekly tasks don’t have to be done on the same day. You don’t need to call Saturday your weekly task day. Space the out throughout the week and add them to the tasks lists for that day.
Give Incentives To Stay On Track
Since cleaning routines aren’t fun and exciting, you may find is difficult to keep and maintain it. It’s like starting that exercise routine or diet. You may be all gung ho, but after a few weeks of kale and asparagus burgers, it’s not so easy to keep going. Your cleaning routine is important, so try and stay focused by giving yourself rewards or other incentives to keep you on track.
