Nobody likes doing housework, but believe it or not, you can find joy in cleaning the home by changing your perspective. Remember, in order to do something the right way, you have to be able to find a certain aspect of the job fun or enjoyable. Aside from dancing to music you love and treating yourself to a delicious snack as a reward, there are reasons to enjoy doing chores. Here are a few of our favorites:

1. You can take as much time as you need. 

If you're doing chores on your own, you're free to pace yourself—it doesn't matter if you want to spend five hours deep cleaning home appliances or 15 minutes gathering clutter in a tuck-away bin. You can even go back and forth between working or taking naps.

2. You have no one to argue with. 

Having a team to share chores with can be helpful, but when it comes to cleaning, you're better off on your own. You can sweep, dust, mop and wipe every surface without having to ask anyone to move or delaying a task because someone is doing another job.

3. You don't have to adjust your cleaning standards. 

You know what they say—if you want something done right, do it yourself. You can't complain about a task that hasn't been ticked off your list or about something not being clean enough because the only expectations you have to live up to are your own. 

4. You can reap the rewards of your hardwork before anyone else. 

There's nothing better than diving in your bed with fresh sheets after changing the bedding or soaking in the tub after scrubbing it clean!

5. You don’t need to spend anything.

Aside from shopping for cleaning tools and supplies, there's no need to issue cheques for professional cleaners or house help. Who knew you could save money while keeping your home in tip-top shape? 

6. You can skip working out for the day. 

Cleaning takes up as much energy and effort as an hour-long session at the gym, but the former will make you extra productive than the latter as you get to hit two birds with one stone.
