Fun Tips While Cleaning
Cleaning has never had the reputation of being a fun or an enjoyable activity. Instead, it is often seen as a chore you wished could be done on its own. There is no denying that some of us hate cleaning, although it is a necessary task and one in which the result is enjoyed by most. While cleaning will probably never make it to the list of more enjoyable activities, here are some fun ideas that you might want to try.
Turn Up the Sound
Listening to music is one of the most fun things to do while cleaning. You can activate your favourite music playlist, whether loud or soft depending on your mood. Whether it’s Pop, Reggae, Dancehall or Gospel, it can get you into the groove of cleaning. Many of the popular music streaming apps have playlists especially for cleaning. If you have a time constraint put on some upbeat music and match the pace of your cleaning to the tempo of the songs. You will get it all done in quick time.
Make A Phone Call
If you are a busy person this is a great way to take your mind off cleaning and catch up with someone. Pick up the phone and call a friend or family member that you do not usually communicate with regularly. Technology allows us to talk hands-free, so you get the work done without noticing the time. Be careful not to keep your phone close to certain cleaning products.
Turn It into Exercise
Another two in one game changer, is exercising. Get a little exercise in while cleaning your space. Whenever you clean low surfaces, exaggerate the movement into a squat to work your lower body, cleaning windows or reaching up high can work your arms and shoulders. For the more competitive person, race against the clock. Set a timer for 30 minutes and see how much work you can get done within that time. Break a sweat and lift your mood while completing your tasks.
Make A List
Making a list may sound odd when coupled with the word fun. Luckily, the feeling of checking a list and crossing out tasks can also motivate you. After a task is completed, checking it off can give you a sense of pride and accomplishment. Having the list posted for everyone to see, may very well influence others to lend an extra pair of hands.
You never have to clean alone with social media around. This tip served the more social-media friendly people, who love the company of their friends. You can watch a Facebook or Instagram Live, or go Live yourself. You can take your phone everywhere you go while cleaning or just place it up where you can be seen. It is even more fun if you make it a routine and use Live one day out of the week while you clean. Do not forget to use JACDEN cleaning products while at it!
