5 Tips To Get MotivatedTo Clean Your Home

I love cleaning and organizing! I can’t function properly if my home is a mess. It is very rewarding to have a clean and organized home, but there are some days when I don’t feel motivated to clean, so I will be sharing with you five tips I do that help me get motivated, and I am sure they will motivate you too!ย I have gotten some questions on how to get motivated to clean your home so I thought this would be a fun post to share ๐Ÿ™‚ I wanted these tips to help you enjoy the process of cleaning as well.

First, here are some benefits of having a clean home:

  • Lowers stress
  • Uplifts your mood
  • Improves your mental state
  • Increases your productivity
  • Sense of accomplishment
  • Enhances creativity
  • You have more clarity and focus
  • Improves your sleep

If these benefits aren’t enough to help you get motivated to clean your home, then let’s move on to some other tips ๐Ÿ˜‰

1. Watch Cleaning Videos

I don’t know if it’s just me but I LOVE watching cleaning and organizing videos! I also realized that each time I do, I get more motivated to clean. For instance, if you need to clean and organize your fridge watch a video where someone is cleaning out their fridge. It will motivate you, and sometimes they give you great cleaning tips as well. I find all these videos very useful, and I love watching them ๐Ÿ™‚

2. Put On Uplifting Music

I always have uplifting music on when I clean, it keeps you energized, and it makes cleaning more fun.ย So make sure to put on your favorite uplifting music while you clean and time will just fly by!

3.ย Have A Drink and Snacks

For the days that I am deep cleaning; I make myself a tea, coffee or infused water. I also have snacks for whenever I want to take a little break I could sip on my drink and snack while I clean. This always makes cleaning more fun as well ๐Ÿ™‚

4.ย Put On Work Out Clothes

I know that it could be tempting to clean with your pj’sย on,ย I have done that before and still do sometimes ๐Ÿ™‚ But I have noticed that when I put on my workout clothes, it motivates you to keep cleaning until you finish all your chores. Having your pj’s on tends to make you feel lazy and just want to rush everything. Putting on your workout clothes will help you feel more awake, and you will feel more put together.

5.ย Deep Clean One Section A Day

Something that DOESN’T help you to get motivated to clean is knowing that you have to deep clean everything in the house in one day. So what I started doing is deep cleaning one section every day. This might not work for everyone depending on your schedule, but it has definitely helped me.

For example:

Monday: Deep clean restroom

Tuesday: Deep clean kitchen

Wednesday: Deep clean living room

Thursday: Deep clean bedroom

Friday: Clean stove and fridge

Saturday: The usual cleaning

Sunday: Wash clothes and deep clean whatever is neededย 

I don’t do this perfectly every time, but it has helped meย not spend one day of the week all day deep cleaning each room. I know not all of you will be able to deep clean a room a day, but you can have a day where you clean all the mirrors, dust, etc. Simply doing something every day that will help keep your home tidy.

Burn Some Candles

Once you are officially done with all your cleaning, put on some candles and enjoy your beautiful and clean home! ๐Ÿ™‚

Tips On How To Get Motivated To Clean Your Home

In summary, here are the 5 tips to help you get motivated and enjoy your cleaning process:

1. Watch Cleaning Videos

2. Put On Uplifting Music

3. Have A Drink and Snacks

4. Put On Workout Clothes

5. Deep clean one section a day

I hope this helped you out and gave you new ideas to get motivated to clean your home. It’s something we have to do every day so might as well find ways to enjoy the process ๐Ÿ™‚

    Love the idea of watching cleaning and organization videos. I usually go through my organization board on Pinterest to motivate me so i’m sure watching videos would work just as well! Love your blog!

    • Aw thank you!! Yes the videos definitely will motivate! It always works for me โ˜บ

    Great post! The best motivation for me is…inviting some guests!:D I always do really deep cleaning when I expect someone to come:P

    • Thank you!

      That is so true! I should had added that tip as well ๐Ÿ˜€

      Thanks for sharing that! ๐Ÿ™‚


  3. I love the videos idea! I would have never thought of that.
    One thing that motivates me is watching a tv show or listening to an audio book while I clean. If I only get to watch or listen when I clean, that makes me want to clean more often! Plus, it makes the cleaning more tolerable when my attention is on something more interesting.

    • Yes! This is such a great tip. I am sure anyone who reads it will benefit from it ????

      Thanks so much for commenting! โ™ก

    You have such a lovely blog! I really needed this at the moment because my baby is due to arrive anytime (his due date is actually tomorrow) and this was really motivating to get me to finish up the last of the cleaning I need to do. Thanks! x

      I am so glad this motivated you!

      Have a great day beautiful โ™ก

  6. I love this! I definitely don’t like cleaning but I know it affects my mood if my space gets too dirty. I’m used to blasting my favorite tunes but I think I’d like to check out the video idea. Also, I tend to get frustrated when water slops over the sink onto my regular clothes when doing dishes, so I may try the work out clothes tip too!

    • Sounds great! Thank you for sharing Anna ???? Yes it can help improve your mood so much โ™ก and yup blasting the music always helps! Lol

      Thanks for commenting โ™ก
