Crack up the sound system

Get the sounds going and the volume pumping. There’s nothing that adds vigour to your step and general movements than some rhythm – and the louder the better (provided it stays within your neighbors tolerance levels!

Embrace the great outdoors

On a sunny Fall day head out for some yard work or hand wash laundry in the garden. Now is also the time to give the windows a good wash. That’s because it’s the perfect opportunity to let dream and enjoy some Fall sunshine at the same time.

Make cleaning time family time

Few moms have the luxury these days to spend hours on end cleaning the home. But by making household cleaning a family affair, you’ll find extra time to spend with the kids. Gather the kids around a bowl of snacks and all start sorting and folding laundry. Think of fun and creative games to play which will result in the whole family helping out with household chores – without them even realizing it!

Make it social

Ever thought about getting your neighbors to help clean your home? Something as simple as a yard or boot sale can mean just that! Just arrange neatly on a table in your front yard all those goods you never use and which clutter up your spare room. Better still, gets the kids to sell them for you! They’ll love playing shopkeepers.

What the above tips show is that altering your mindset you can actually make household cleaning more of a pleasure than a chore – and even something you can enjoy with the whole family.
