3 Tips for Cleaning When You’re Emotionally Exhausted

This pandemic has presented challenges and hard times for everyone.

Whether we’ve struggled physically, financially or emotionally, we all have a story to tell.

When those burdensome moments arise, it can feel overwhelming to do anything, let alone clean your house.

Still life always has to go on,  and housekeeping chores still need to be done. In this article, you’ll learn our tips and tricks to help you clean and de-clutter your home, even when you feel emotionally exhausted.

1. Start SMALL

Trying to make big decisions when you’re emotionally drained can lead you to feel frustrated and eventually more tired than when you began.

So start with a small task. This could be as simple as picking up the trash or recycling throughout your home.

As you continue doing these smaller tasks and completing them, you will feel less stressed and emotionally exhausted.

Keep finding these types of tasks that you can do quickly, and pretty soon, your home will be looking better.

2. Focus on Visible Items

Continuing on from our first tip of starting small, we recommend starting with what’s visible.

Do you notice dishes lying around? Or maybe laundry piling up?

Whatever you see, start there, and if there are multiple things you could start with, pick the quickest job and work your way up to the larger projects.

Tackling these very obvious task will give you a sense of accomplishment and make you feel good.

3 . Don’t Overwhelm Yourself

Whether you’ve finished de-cluttering a space or not, the area will be improved if you at least do something.

Don’t put too much pressure on yourself to get everything done at once – that’s not healthy.

Take the cleaning process one step at a time, and if you feel like you need to stop and rest, then take the time. If you want to continue working, then let yourself.

Overall, listen to your body and what it needs at the moment; you’ll have time to finish the project later.
