Habits are a daily part of our everyday lives. They even define the condition of our homes. We form habits naturally, but forming good cleaning and organizing habits for our home can be a challenge if it’s not something that comes to us naturally. And whether or not we have hired a professional maid service, good cleaning habits can help improve their work flow if your home is well organized. With just a little bit of effort, these helpful habits can be of help to anyone!
What is the definition of a habit? The Merriam-Webster dictionary defines a habit as “a settled tendency or usual manner of behavior”. Every aspect of our lives is habitual, somehow, someway. The way we approach our home is no different. You might even have our Maid to Shine cleaning techs cleaning for you on a regular basis, but good habits for the home help with the general upkeep of your home. Forming (and sticking with) these habits will go a long way in creating cleaner homes. Even if you’re new to excellent cleaning rituals or you’re a pro, these tidbits are helpful for everyone.
Go the Distance
Be committed to go the distance and be intentional about forming these habits. It’s hard to keep up good cleaning habits if the intention to see them through isn’t there. It might be as little as being more adept at organizing that makes a home cleaner. Working on these habits until they become natural and involuntary is key, and that takes daily practice and a lot of perseverance.
Begin Your Day with Good Habits
In the rush, hustle and bustle, and hurry of life, sometimes it’s easier to get out of bed and neglect things until we can come back to them when it’s “not as busy”. Begin your day by taking care of these little things. Make the bed the second you wake up. Put the coffee pot away as soon as you’re finished with it. Put the dirty dishes into the dishwasher, instead of letting them pile up in the sink. It takes only a few extra seconds (or minutes) to finish little tasks such as these. Even if you have the best maid service and regular home cleanings, it’s still helpful to form daily habits that can help keep your home organized and clean. Even the best cleaning service will be the better if they house they clean is organized and cleaner when they come to perform their services. And these tips are just the start.
