Cleaning Motivation

I have to be completely honest here. Most days I don't feel like cleaning. I love when our home is clean, but I lack the drive to get started. However, once I start the cleaning process, I can get a lot accomplished.

Here are a few things that help me get motivated to clean when I'm just not feeling it...

Watch Speed Cleaning Videos
I know it may sound a bit strange, but there is something about watching speed cleaning videos and seeing how clean their home is that gets me motivated to clean ours.

Three of my favorites are...
She's in Her Apron
Love Meg
How Jen Does It

Get Dressed
When I take a shower and get dressed for the day, it makes a big difference in whether I get things done or not. If I stay in my jammies, I'm just not motivated to clean up the house and take care of my responsibilities.

Start with Making Your Bed
When dishes are piled up, laundry needs to be washed, floors need to be swept and you just aren't feeling it... make your bed. This works every.single.time for me. There is something about a made bed that gets me motivated to keep going.

Turn on Some Music
Listen to a local radio station or Pandora and get to dancing and singing while you're cleaning. Put on happy music to put a pep in your step.

Listen to Podcasts
There are several free podcasts that you can listen to while you are cleaning. I found several on homemaking (see here), but you can search for whatever topic you enjoy listening to.

I hope some of these ideas get you motivated to clean.

What is your least favorite thing to clean? Dishes? Laundry?
