The next time you need to clean, set a timer for twenty minutes. When the timer goes off, stop! Marathon cleaning sessions lead to burnout. When you only have to clean for 20 minutes, it’s not quite as intimidating to get started.

There’s no chore that can’t be made a little better by listening to your favorite tunes. Using cleaning products that smell nice can make a big difference in whether you want to use them. You could burn scented candles or plug in an air freshener, too!

Engage Your Senses
