Having a tidy home can be an important part of your wellness journey. By keeping your home organized, you can focus your time on things like managing MS symptoms and keeping up with your daily routines. In addition, a clean home can make moving around the space easier.
With spring cleaning fresh on everyone’s mind, we’re here to provide you with tips to help you save your energy and make the most of your efforts.
- Make a list. Decide what needs to be done now and what can be done later. By prioritizing your list and tackling chores in order of importance, you can save energy.
- Craft a schedule. Cleaning doesn’t need to happen in one day! Once you’ve made a to-do list, create a plan that allows you to accomplish small tasks over the course of several days.
- Sit while you can. Some tasks, like organizing drawers, may be more comfortable to do while seated.
- Use long-handled cleaning supplies. When household tasks involve hard-to-reach items, use cleaning tools with extended handles, like mops, brooms, or dusters.
- Use lightweight tools. Invest in a lightweight vacuum and other supplies that are easy to carry from room to room.
- Ask for help. It’s okay to ask for assistance! Invite family or friends over to help.
- Maintain. Once you’ve completed your spring cleaning, keep it up! Invest in handy products like pre-moistened wipes for quick and easy cleanups.
