Life can be overwhelming. And so can be a messy home. Where to start cleaning when you are overwhelmed ? We’ve all been there and have asked ourselves this same question. The important thing is to not give up. Start small. Take breaks. You’ll get there.
One step at a time
In no way are you required to do everything at once. It make take a bit of time. Be patient with yourself. You may feel like you have too much on your plate, and it is not uncommon. But, the important thing is to give yourself time and believe that you can accomplish what seems like an overwhelming task of cleaning your home. Firstly, try your best to get into a mindset of taking it one step at a time.
Decluttering and putting things away is the first step. If you don’t know where to start, just focus on one surface area at a time. Start with something like taking things away from the table. Put dirty dishes into the sink, left overs into containers, and food into the fridge. When the table surface is free from the clutter, wipe it down. First spray an all-purpose cleaner onto it, then wipe with a wet cloth until the surface is free from the cleaning solution. Then on to the next surface. Keep at it!
Move to the kitchen and Bathrooms
When the surfaces in your home are free from clutter and wiped down, move to the kitchen and bathrooms. By this point, you should have emptied and cleaned your counters in kitchen and bathrooms. Clean the sinks in the bathrooms. Do the dishes next. To help you with this task, you can put on music or your favourite podcast on Spotify. The time will pass by quicker.
Cleaning the Floors
Your last step in cleaning your home is doing the floors. Declutter your floors similarly to how you decluttered the tables and counters. Put things away to where they belong. Next, vacuum your floors thoroughly, making sure to get all corners and under the furniture. When vacuuming is done, mop all surfaces that can be mopped.
Garbage and Laundry Cleanup
Finally, when all the surfaces are nice and clean, make sure to take out the garbage. You will feel a big relief. Now that you have taken out all the unnecessary things and recycling, throw in your laundry into the washer. And while you wait for it to dry, reward yoursef.
When you have completed all the tasks, you will feel a big relief. Where to to start cleaning when you are overwhelmed – the question will be history. Make sure to reward yourself with some ice cream or a glass of wine after all the hard work! Enjoy and savour it, you very well deserved it!
