There's always a lazy girl in each one of us. It's that voice inside our heads that makes us want to put off cleaning our room, which leads to days, weeks, and even months. It's time to vanquish that voice with these helpful tips!

  1. Make a list.

You don't have to grab a pen and paper but if it helps you, I'm not stopping you. Just make a list of pros about having a tidy room and the cons if you keep your room messy. You may eventually be overwhelmed with the pros and that will prepare you for the next step.

  1. Stop resisting.

You can do it! This step is always the hardest—getting up and getting things started. But our mind is a powerful thing; once you decide to get up, the rest will be easy.

  1. Make a game plan.

Plan your way around the room, go for what's more practical rather than what's easier to do. When mopping, we sometimes start from where we stand then move our way across the room. But that could mean walking back and leaving foot markings on the floor. Start from across the room and walk backwards for a more practical and easier way of cleaning. And remember to start up, from the ceiling to the floor.


  1. Make lint rollers your best friend.

One of our cleaning nightmares is the dust taking residence in our room. Lint rollers are the perfect solution for you if you don't feel like sweeping more dirt on the floor. 

  1. Don't stop and listen to music instead.

Cleaning can be tiring but taking a break will just lead you to extending your resting hours to forever. Listen to some music while you work instead. This will help you get your groove on and make work more fun. With all that productivity boost, you never know how much you could accomplish.
