  • I hate to clean, I used to find I would get very overwhelmed and quit. I read an article a few years ago (probably when I should have been cleaning) that said to do one room at a time, don't vacuum your entire house, just do the living room. Since reading this I find cleaning is much less overhwelming and I have a complete sense of accomplishment because after a few minutes of work, I can see actual progress in one room. If I get sidetracked or have to do something else it's ok because at least one room got cleaned.
