You might find the expression ‘cleaning the house’ overwhelming – with good reason! Houses are big (even the small ones), and contain a lot of stuff. The thought of cleaning your entire house, flat or apartment, in one go, might prevent anyone from ever getting started.
If that’s the case, break the job into small bits. Ask yourself ‘how long can I keep going on a physical task before I get tired?’
Let’s say you can do fifteen minutes, before you need to stop. Now ask yourself ‘what little cleaning job can I do in that time?’ Can you… clean the kitchen sink? vacuum the lounge carpet? wash a few windows inside? Just do one task and see how long it takes you. If you then feel you can do another, great, but stop if you need to. You’ve still achieved your target task within a target timeframe. You have achieved your objective. Well done; reward yourself for that.
