How to Have Fun While Cleaning

Homeowners may have this idea that cleaning their home will never become interesting; however, these tasks could actually gain much greater appeal with just one simple change: amping up our vibes while completing them - such as music from artists you enjoy listening to and dancing to!

Combine Cleaning and Entertainment

Have you ever tried listening to a good podcast or audiobook while cleaning and got so engrossed in the story that hours flew by? The benefits of combining your favorite music, audiobook, or podcast are endless. Charge those wireless earbuds, and prepare to get lost in time while taking care of tedious tasks like dusting baseboards and organizing your linen closet!

Invite Your Friends

So many people find themselves procrastinating from cleaning because it is tedious work. But what if you had some company? Invite your friends over for pizza and drinks! They can help out while they’re here or just sit in the room chatting with you as you start to eliminate those pesky messes. Afterward, you won’t even realize how much cleaning you’ve accomplished in such a short amount of time!

Dance While You Clean

If you are home alone cleaning, blast your favorite playlists as music to help set the cleaning pace. The rhythm will make it easier for you to stay focused on working in each room and completing small tasks like wiping down all surfaces before moving on to the next one! Take this tip one step further by challenging yourself with doing these same things while listening: take breaks between songs or parts of tracks-you'll be done way faster than expected!

Make Phone Calls

Keeping in touch with family and friends is so important, but it can be difficult if you don't have the time. You should try using cleaning as an excuse to call your grandparents or best friend from college! 

Burn Some Calories

If you’re looking for a way to get your heart rate going and make time fly, try tackling laborious chores like cleaning the shower or washing floors. For best results (and because they're fun!), set goals that will challenge both body and mind like burning 100 calories in 15 minutes! This way, you won’t have to worry about fitting in your workout on cleaning day. 

Reward Your Hard Work

Housekeeping is often hard physical labor. If you dedicate a large chunk of your weekend to tidying up and washing dishes, make sure that when it's all done there will be something rewarding waiting for you! So take some time off during those days--have drinks with friends or order food from one of your favorite restaurants. You'll enjoy cleaning more if there's an awesome reward promised at the end.
