7 Ways to Make Chores More Enjoyable

Chores can be some of the least anticipated tasks in the home and yet, they still
need to get done! Fortunately, making chores more enjoyable may be easier than
you think.
Here are seven ways to get you and your family into the groove of cleaning.

1. Get Your Kids Involved
One of the first mistakes many parents make is to assume all of the chore responsibility
on their own. However, that can quickly lead to burnout. As your kids grow and
understand the importance of taking care of their space, get them involved with the
cleaning process. This will lighten your workload and help instill strong values in your
kids for years to come.

2. Create a Fair Chore System
When the chores become a family affair, some family members may feel like they are
constantly getting the short end of the stick. Make chores fair by swapping out duties on
a weekly or monthly basis.

3. Make It a Game
If your kids are complaining about chore duty, it’s time to make things a little more exciting.
Create a game out of your chores to keep everyone engaged. You could have your kids
play a scavenger hunt to find all the clothes, newspapers, or any other items that need to
be gathered and organized. It will feel like play time, while in reality, it will leave your house
looking spotless and brand new.

4. Do What You Love
If you have a chore you love to do, make sure you do it as often as you can.
According to House Method, doing your favorite chore on a regular basis can bring you
joy and make you feel more accomplished. Even if you only have 10 minutes a day, see
if you can fit in an extra load of laundry, a vacuum session, or any other of your favorite tasks.
It’s the small acts of cleaning that make a big difference in the long-run.

5. Crank Up the Tunes
There’s nothing worse than feeling like chores are a punishment. Make them more fun by
playing music, turning on a favorite show, or listening to a new podcast. This will keep
your mind engaged and your spirits high.

6. Invest in Cute Cleaning Supplies
If your sponges, gloves, spray bottles, and other cleaning supplies have seen better days,
it may be time for an update. Buy yourself a few cute cleaning items you’ll look forward to
using. And remember, they don’t have to be expensive to get the job done.  

7. Don’t Strive for Perfection
Ultimately, cleaning doesn’t have to be an Olympic sport. If you’re always aiming to create a
perfect house, you may never feel satisfied with your efforts. Instead, let yourself be okay
with things turning out “good enough.” This is especially important to keep in mind when
cleaning with your kids, since the tasks may not be done to the highest standards.
At the end of the day, if everyone has made their best effort, then you can consider it a
job well done.

There’s no reason to get bogged down by your chores.
Before your next cleaning day, consider incorporating a few of these tips to see
how much more enjoyable tidying up can be.
