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 make sure 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 u.
This article will talk about the methods to keep your home clean and tidy, even for those of us who are not endowed with a great deal of diligence.
1. strict schedule.
Look, most of you are not lazy. You just do not know how to manage your schedule properly.
With a bit of help in this aspect, you will be able to improve your coping with the challenges of your life in general and the cleanliness of your home in particular.
How? You must be asking.
The first possible solution is An agreement that you make with yourself as part of a strong decision that - once a week, on Sunday at 10 in the morning (for example) you clean your house no matter what - will help you and put you on the right track in terms of proper and responsible conduct in your home.
Because even if, for that matter, you are 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 say: "let's get this over with."
I will give you an example from my personal life.
Surprise, surprise, but I, too, am fighting "my personal laziness" when it comes to household chores.
Although I tried almost every tip that existed, I could not make real progress on the subject until I applied the advice as above - strict schedules, following which I decided with myself that even if the end of the world comes and aliens take over live on Ellen DeGeneres show (God, please don't), still, every day Friday at 8 pm I will clean my house. (And right after that, I'll fight those aliens)
This very decision I made with myself overcomes my tendency to be lazy. This is due to the simple insight that I do it once and end it as much as I hate to clean.
Know that 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."
Okay, you might be right, and there is no such quote (we invented it right now). But it does not really matter because the guiding principle is still true - 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 true of the subject of our articles.
You were honest enough with yourself and present to understand that you are a little lazy. This insight can take you to productive places, and 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.
Try to be a little more aware of the other person (who is not as lazy as you are) and what you are doing in your home.
If you know you will have a tough time cleaning up and tidying things up later - just do your best to minimize as much as possible "messy" actions.
Get to know yourself
At first glance, this insight may sound relatively trivial, but believe us - it is not, and many people really need the same wake-up call to remind them 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 eligible purchases before you enter the apartment. There are household products that require regular and daily maintenance, while there are those that are just the opposite, and infrequent cleaning will suffice for them. Understand how you put your hand on the same furniture/accessories, making your life a lot 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, explain this to your loved ones (and hope they will not punch you in the face) and ask for their help.
But by the way, it goes without saying you'll have to offer your modest services in returning favors in other fields in return. There are no free gifts.
There is also always 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 in that you will not have to wash dishes after using them, which is one of the well-known Achilles' heels of lazy people. This is also relevant for baking surfaces and so on.
We are not currently going into the cost aspects, only the optimization aspects for lazy people, and ordering food will also help you with dishwashing and the complex organization of shared meals.
Identify places characterized by the accumulation of dirt and bad odor and put there 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 this will avoid problems that 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 really mention them one by one since we do not live with you, and only you are aware of them due to your continuous stay in your home, so only you can know the little things that can make your (lazy) life much more straightforward.
In the end, you are the ones who know your home best. Try to think deeply and find out what the little everyday things are that by doing them, you can make it easier on yourself.
We hope we have helped you to some extent to continue to stay lazy and keep a house clean and tidy.
And now, seriously, move your ass and clean your house - this is the best advice.
