Cleaning blows. Plain and simple. You'd rather chop off your fingers than lift a broom or do the dishes. But why such a bad attitude? Instead of focusing on how much you hate vacuuming, think about the upside. If you dig deeper than sponges and rubber gloves, you'll find value and meaning in housework. It's a great way to show pride in your belongings and cultivate a sense of control, especially if the mess is totally out of control. Ease into it: tackle the small stuff first.
