Chores are my absolute nightmare, so even breaking things in small tasks is daunting to me, because it just seems like more work.
So I usually convince myself to clean things up for 30 minutes in the morning. I start a timer and try to get as many things done in those 30 minutes as possible, starting by decluttering and making the space look and feel better.
If it’s a hard day, I will stop when the timer is done and call it a day, but sometimes I get excited about it and end up setting another timer for extra 30min to finish it up.
Using a timer helps my brain to understand that it’s very rewarding to spend these 30 minutes cleaning to have a nicer space.
Sometimes I use extra timers during the day (like 15 minutes for laundry at the evening, or things like that). It helps me to know exactly when it will end. Chores can feel never ending sometimes.
