Hi, my name is Jordan, and I hate cleaning. Like, the word hate isn’t even strong enough to express my feelings of complete disdain against this thing we call cleaning. When I was getting married, all of my married friends were telling me about how cooking was the hardest part of being a wife. For me? Nah. There’s nothing that butter and garlic salt can’t redeem.
But CLEANING? ew. ew. ew. ew. ew. ew. ew. ew.

ew.

Although, I’ve recently come to grips with the fact that cleaning is just a necessary evil for everyone, regardless of our different seasons of life. Does that mean my apartment is always clean? How cute. But – it means I’ve come up with a few ways that have helped me distract myself from the pain while doing what needs to be done. A spoonful of sugar helps the medicine go down, amiright?

So, here is my biggest tip for getting through cleaning when you abhor it:

Listen to audiobooks and/or podcasts.

Boom. Yes, that’s it. And guys, this has been huuuuuuugee for me. Although I still enjoy listening to music to help pass the time, whenever I listen to podcasts and audiobooks, I find that I get “sucked in” and kind of go into autopilot. Then, I’m like “The bathroom is already clean?” aaand, it’s pretty grand. You should try it. If you click the link in the sidebar of my site, you get to download two free books with Audible to test it out!  

If you’re someone who loves to read or you just simply have a few things you want to read but don’t have the time, then I’m pretty sure I’m now a superhero because I just saved your life. Maybe you have a hectic work schedule, or are a busy mom — whatever it is, this has changed the way that I function in life, so I simply had to share. So, here ya go, friend. Do with this information as you will.

If you hate cleaning as much as yours truly — try it.

Love,
Jordan
