Taking a “Spring Break” from Cleaning

  • Simple tips to empower you to take a spring break from cleaning

Spring has sprung! If you’re like us at Sweeping Dimensions, you’re in the mood to take on your spring cleaning checklist and create a clear, fresh, and organized home.

From decluttering all those items that don’t “spark joy” to deep cleaning those hard-to-reach spots, the spring months are definitely a prime time to clear out dust and debris, and bring in new energy.

Often, however, getting into spring cleaning mode is easier said than done. In other cases, it’s easy to become so sidetracked by all of spring’s little jobs that you forget to take some time to truly relax and enjoy all that the season has to offer. Sometimes, in the mad dash to keep things in order, you can often lose order in your life!

Spring is a time for getting things done, but it’s also a great opportunity to relax and unwind. After all, these are the months when many people travel to their bucket list vacation destinations, or head home for family reunions. Kids have off of school. Parks and pools start to open. You deserve a clean home — as well as a chance to truly savor a spring break!

This spring, take a cue from the beautiful flowers and buds in bloom, and don’t forget about the importance of finding harmony and balance! It’s time to give yourself a break. Here are three key ways to give yourself a “spring break” from spring cleaning:

1.) Minimize the Mess (and the Stress)

One of the very best ways to give yourself a much-needed break is simple: Keep up with a regular cleaning routine. We’re not telling you to clean more! Just the opposite. The reality is that the more regular jobs you do, however small, the easier it will feel to keep your home in order, and the more time you’ll have to relax and enjoy.  

When you have an everyday system in place, it’s easier to keep things in balance. The more you get done each day, the rarer it becomes to have to deal with a moment where everything is backed up and your “to-do” list seems insurmountable. Keep the bar low, and the hurdles will become more and more manageable.

One super easy way to get started? Try to keep up with putting things away immediately after you use them, and encourage your children to do so as well. This will help keep everything in order and to prevent those unfortunate times when you need to devote hours to clean your whole house. The less time you spend cleaning up accumulated messes, the more time you have to give yourself a break!

2.) Make Your Home Feel More Relaxing

One of the best ways you can go on spring break without breaking the bank? After your spring cleaning sweep, turn your space into a serene sanctuary!

Taking a few easy steps to make your home feel more peaceful and tranquil space is a fast way to feel like you’re on a retreat without ever leaving home.

Take your cue from your favorite spa or luxury hotel. Set up candles around the house, or spread around your favorite essential oil reed diffusers for a sweet scent and relaxing feel. Add fluffy towels to the bathroom. Walk around in a cozy pair of slippers. Put on meditative music to create a stress-free mood. Make sure your bathtub is clean and ready for you to get pampered. A few small additions and chores is all it takes to make a huge difference. Embrace this spring as your time to enjoy all the hard work you’ve put in to keeping up your clean, serene home.

3.) Plan a Break

This spring, plan ahead, so you can enjoy the here and now. It’s important to carve out time for the most important things. Enjoy the spring view, dine al fresco with friends and family, ride bikes in the park, read a new favorite book. Find time to plan a day, or at least a few spare  hours, to have totally and completely for yourself.

You can …

  • Plan a spa outing
  • Schedule the kids for a playdate with their friends
  • Do a weekend or short retreat – yoga, meditation, travel, hiking, etc.
  • Take the day to marathon your favorite show
  • Picnic in the park – or right in your backyard
