Well its pretty simple. Imagine yourself coming back from your wonderful holiday and returning to a home that looks like a disaster has just struck. You wouldn’t want that would you, coming home from your holiday only to end up having to have more work to do by cleaning your home. That completely defeats the purpose of going for a holiday.

That’s right, everything is a lot more tempting to do when we think it is fun to do. Here are some the things that we could think of that would make cleaning be fun for you:
Invite a friend over. This may sound a little strange, but hey, we’re sure you like to invite friends over for parties and what not; so it would be a good idea to invite them to help you with your cleaning too. Of course this would mean inviting only close friends, you wouldn’t want to be inviting someone you just met to do this! You could get them to help you with cleaning your storeroom perhaps, and the both of you can have a great time digging through your old things, and sharing a good laugh or two.
The both of you could also pretend that you are in a game show and set a timer as if have to complete it within that time frame. You would be amazed at the speed you finish your cleaning tasks by doing this. Besides cleaning, you also get to spend quality time with your friends. You do not have to necessarily do this with your friend, you can even do it with your family members. Of course make sure you have the music on to groove to it, especially if you are a music fanatic. Never underestimate the power of what music could do for you.
Another way for you to go about with your cleaning is to entertain yourself. Sing out loud, dance along to the music and this way you will not feel bored, but feel upbeat and energetic.
If you are the type who loves to reward yourself for a job a well done. You can remind yourself go for a break by having a alarm clock to go off every 10 to 15 minutes so that you can for your well deserved break. In this way, you have the thought of going for a break at the back of your head and so you would be more motivated to finish your cleaning! But remember, for this to be fruitful, you have to dedicate that 15 minutes to nothing else but cleaning. Also if it helps, snack on your favorite food while cleaning. Of course be conscious that you may not exactly be working in a very clean environment, so you may want to factor that in when you have your snacks!
Also if you have troubles deciding on where to start, close your eyes and start with the first thing you see when you open your eyes. Once you are done with cleaning that, move on to the things next to the first. This way you feel more organised and it will help you to move on with your tasks.
To end this fruitful day of cleaning, you can go for a great dinner with your loved ones and friends or just order in! Just imagine how satisfying it would be to relax and unwind in a cozy and comfortable home!
