Unlike traditional cleaning tips (who needs more dusting tips, truly?), we want to give you a MINDSET tip that makes all the difference, not just when cleaning your home, but we want you to use this attitude of gratitude for all things that have to do with life.
Kondo always suggests starting your spring cleaning by thanking your home. And we couldn't agree more. Listen, our MoodMe team writes out their weekly schedule as, "Get To Dos". Why? Because having a job is a privilege that not everyone has, especially during these COVID days.
We don't have to do anything, we GET to do it because we are one of the lucky ones. The same applies to your home. You have a roof over your head. You have a place to live. You have a place that you call home. You are one of the lucky ones. You don't have to spring clean your home- you GET to. You clean your home out of gratitude for it. You're so thankful that you have a safe place to be so you're cleaning it out of respect, love, and care.
As Kondo says, "Dedicating time to express gratitude for your home is a powerful act that will heighten your sensitivity to joy and remove energy and objects that no longer serve you." Adopting this attitude of gratitude will not only put you in a better mood, but it will make the entire process a million times more enjoyable. Instead of seeing this day as a wasted chore day, see it for the blessing it truly is- a blessing not everyone has anymore.
