How to stay lazy and still keep your home clean and tidy?
And here we are again at Sweet blog, the sweetest blog online.
And today, we are here to take care of some of our lazy ones - those who prefer the prolonged spanking on the couch more than anything else.
Yes. We're talking to you.
We know that you, too, would like to ensure that your home is tidy and clean. But You are not willing to take any action on the subject because you are too lazy.
But don't worry, we got you.
This article will talk about the methods to keep your home clean and tidy, even for those not endowed with great diligence.
And as always, at the end of the article, there will be a refreshing infographic presentation to summarize its content for you.
1. strict schedule.
Look, It is clear that most of you are indeed not lazy. You just do not know how to manage your schedule properly.
With a bit of help, you will improve your time management skills to help you make your home clean and tidy without any special effort.
'How'? You must be asking.
The first optional solution is an agreement you will make with yourself as part of a strong decision that - once a week, on Sunday at 10 AM (for example) - you will clean your house no matter what. Doing so will put you on the right track in terms of proper and responsible conduct of your home.
The goal here is mainly a behavioral change and not some practical tactic Because even if, for that matter, you are indeed very lazy individuals, still, the very determined that there is no need for prolonged and separate times of exhausting cleaning, but only one specific date set for this task - will help you overcome your "lazy" nature.
Most of you will probably find yourself mumbling something like: "let's get this over with."
In order to make our argument more down to earth, we will describe an example from our personal life.
Surprise, surprise, but we, too, are fighting "personal laziness" when it comes to household chores.
Although we tried almost every tip in the book, we could only make real progress on the subject once we applied the advice above - strict schedules. We decided that even if the end of the world comes and aliens take over live on Ellen DeGeneres show (God, please don't), still, every Friday at 8 PM, we will clean our house. (and immediately after, We will kick these aliens' asses. No one will hurt our gorgeous Ellen!)
This very decision helps us overcome our tendency to be lazy.
Despite the dissonance that may arise intuitively from this advice ("After all, the problem is that I am lazy. How will I set regular cleaning times ?!"), it has been tested many times in the past and proven to be successful.
Set a schedule and stick to it no matter what!
By the way, adhering to regular schedules is a tool that will help you with a wide range of issues, not just the subject of this article. You can read more about that here.
2. Acknowledge your weaknesses.
An ancient Chinese scholar once said, "The sooner you recognize your weaknesses, the more you will avoid mistakes."
You might be right, and there is no such quote (we invented it right now). But it does not matter because the guiding principle is still valid - acknowledging your weaknesses will help you better understand your difficulties. As a result, you will be able to find better ways to deal with them.
Read more here about how you can turn your weaknesses into strengths.
The same is valid here.
If you have managed to be honest enough with yourself and, indeed, you internalized that you are a bit lazy, This insight alone can take you to productive places, the first of which is: Do not make too much of a mess! Because you know your difficulties and know you will have a hard time dealing with them and cleaning up after your own mess.
If you know all along that you will have a tough time cleaning up and tidying things up later - do your best to minimize as much as possible "messy" behavior.
Get to know yourself
At first glance, this insight may sound relatively trivial, but believe us - it is not, and many people really need this wake-up call to remind themself of their difficulties and what they should avoid.
If we are already in the business of recommendations regarding advance planning, another thing that will help you is smart purchases of your home products. Some household products require regular and daily maintenance, while others are just the opposite, and infrequent cleaning will suffice for them. Understand how you put your hand on those furniture/accessories, making your life much easier.
3. Get help.
In the end, there is nothing like the good old tool of reaching out for help.
It can be in the form of close family members and even friends.
The guiding principle is that once you understand that you are having difficulty with something - try to ask for help from others to carry out your tasks.
And if, in this case, you have come to the obvious conclusion that you are a little lazy, talk about it with your loved ones (and hope they will not punch you in the face) and ask for their help.
By the way, it goes without saying you'll have to offer your modest services in other fields in return. There are no free gifts.
If you still prefer to avoid asking for help, there is also the possibility of hiring paid cleaning services. And although it is more relevant to those who can afford it, still, this service can be used infrequently and differentially in home spaces.
Help each other
4. Small aid tools.
All of the above are principles from which you can derive many practical courses of action.
In this paragraph, we will mention some tiny tips that can make a big difference and help you in your lofty efforts to keep your home clean and stay as lazy as ever.
Using disposable utensils will help you so you will not have to wash dishes after using them, which is one of the well-known Achilles' heels of lazy people. It is also relevant for baking surfaces and so on.
We want to avoid getting into expense discussions but only to find ways to help you stay clean and lazy, and ordering food is one of them. Doing that will help you with dishwashing and the complex organization of shared meals.
Identify places characterized by the accumulation of dirt and bad odor and put on top of them substances that will prevent this odor. For example: Put things such as baking soda/lemon and more in the refrigerator/microwave and other places where rot and bad smell may accumulate. Doing so will help you avoid problems you will have to deal with later.
Small tips that can help you
There are lots of other little tips that can help you. Unfortunately, we can not mention them individually since we do not live with you under the same roof.
Try to think deeply and find out what the little everyday things are so that by doing them, you can make it easier on yourself.
We hope we have helped you stay lazy and keep your house clean and tidy.
And now, seriously, move your ass and clean your house - this is the best advice.
