When the northland starts to bloom it means summer is just around the corner. Although, summer doesn’t officially start until June 20th, it certainly feels like summer is in full effect. During these remaining days of spring, take some time and complete your spring cleaning. I would recommend accomplishing this well before summer’s arrival as during those hot, humid days it can be difficult to get motivated to clean.
If you don’t have a spring cleaning checklist, feel free to use M. Diddy’s (for those that don’t know, M. Diddy is Martha Stewart’s prison nickname)
checklist as a template for your self here. Take this template and apply it to your home.
After you personalize your checklist, next you will want to schedule blocks of time where you can complete each tasks. Be sure to plan the total cleaning over a number of days. If your spring clean is rushed, the quality of work usually diminishes. By doing this, it will not only help you clean your home and have it ready for summer, but it will also reinforce time management skills and can help build good habits.
Do not underestimate the power of habit. Habits guide multiple facets of your life, whether in a positive or not so positive way. For more information on this commanding topic, I would highly recommend reading The Power of Habit: Why We Do What We Do in Life and Business.
