Though ADHD is probably the most recognized attention deficit disorder, there is another one that is just as wide spread but not nearly as well known: Attention Deficit Cleaning Disorder.
ADCD is defined as a condition where you start to clean one thing but get distracted by another thing that needs cleaning. That causes you to bounce from one job to another only to end up doing a lot of work with nothing to show for it!
The good news is, there is now a solution to this malady and all it takes is just a little bit of preparation and then sticking to a routine.
Often times the problem isn’t how to clean, but where to get started. When a homemaker looks at the clutter and dust in her entire home, the idea of cleaning and organizing it can be overwhelming, hence why she flits from one messy area to another. But the above pictograph is a perfect visual representation of not only where to start, but also how to continue along in your day with a clear focus.
To begin your daily cleaning routine you start by picking up all of the clutter in the entire home and then put it away. This will probably only take between 15-30 minutes, and when you are finished you will probably feel a lot less stressed by the state of your home. As a matter of fact, if this is the only chore you get to in a day it makes all the difference because it encompasses your whole home. Just be sure to keep yourself from getting distracted by following this two step decluttering process.
Another way to set up your daily organizing and cleaning schedule is to separate it by days of the week. This way you focus on one area of a time. Of course there are things you will have to do daily, such as doing the dishes, putting away the clutter, and probably laundry. But actual deep cleaning can be simplified through a daily schedule.
By creating and maintaining a daily schedule, you can reverse your ADCD and your home will soon be restored to its perfect state of tidiness.
