I don't love cleaning. I do it because it needs to be done.
I like to put on some music or do it in 15-20 minute sessions with a timer to make it less tedious.

I typically enjoy cleaning! It gets me moving and helps me clear my head.

I don't mind cleaning, but I have certain things I dread having to clean like the bathrooms.

I don't love cleaning, but I like things to be clean and I track my cleaning time as cardio if it is warranted.

I don't love it, but I don't hate it either. I just have to be in the mood to do it.

we will be moving soon, so I am packing for the move. Lots of hard work, but worth it.

Ok anyone looking for a good workout come on over to my house. I'm also in the middle of decluttering so if you have good organizational skills apply within,

I don't like cleaning but love the results and the afterglow.

I find it therapeutic. I spend about 2-3 hours cleaning nearly every day (I'm a SAHM btw). My husband works 12 hour continental shifts so I get all the cleaning done while he's working/sleeping so we have more family time on his days off.

Not because I'm obsessed with a clean house (although it does bug me a little when I see messes and I like everything to be organized) but mostly to keep myself moving. Sitting around makes me feel tired, bored and depressed. I have trouble sitting for any more than 20 mins during the day. Productiveness fights depression, restlessness and boredom! I love having a long to-do list every day. ;) When I'm not cleaning we're doing crafts, playing out in the backyard, going for walks to run errands/to the park, cooking/baking, gardening, etc. always finding stuff to do that doesn't involve my old habit of sitting idly in front of the computer.

I can't deal with the clutter, so I have to clean. I just wish I knew how many calories I was burning while doing each task so I could track my efforts better...

I see cleaning as one of those things that has to be done, I don't like it but its better than living in a pig sty

I'd rather do something else, but I do find it a good way to deal with stress.

Do any of you want to come to my condo and clean? I hate it and could use the help.

I love to clean... I have been cleaning all morning. For me it's an easy way to up the amount of movement I get in one day.
