It’s often way to overwhelming to just start cleaning.

The brain tries to convince us it will take for ever or we’ll never get it done.

If we can stop all the extra brain chatter, we can limit the resistance and actually get to the goal of keeping the house clean.

That’s where checklists can be our best friends.

A cleaning routine checklist, written out for us, takes away the need to think and decide.

Just do.
