We spend more time at home during the colder months than at any other time of the year. But don’t go into hibernation just yet, we’ve a handful of motivational cleaning tips to help make your home a nesting haven – before you batten down the hatches…
Improve your well-being
De-cluttering and cleaning up can help to clear the mind, de-stress and improve your mood. It can also help to improve your relationships, help you to make better food choices, and improve your slumber according to the Journal of Psychological Science. Put a routine in place and watch how life improves when you can go home at the end of a long day to relax in your ‘zenful’ surroundings and enjoy a more peaceful slumber.
Make a list – not just a cleaning task list, but a cleaning playlist.
Music motivates us to finish that workout when we’re at the gym, so why not create the ultimate cleaning playlist.

Don’t attempt to do it all in one day. Take your time and streamline your cleaning routine by creating a schedule that works for you. Break it down into specific duties – clean the shower one day and do the windows the next. Spread it over a week and you’ll be spending minutes a day, rather than hours, on your cleaning routine.
For every task you complete, why not reward yourself? Whether it’s a chocolate muffin, a box-set binge, a luxurious bath or a nice glass of wine – picking up that mop and making those floors gleam won’t seem so difficult when you have something indulgent to look forward to.
