Got a messy house? Clean it up…
every week with this simple tip:
Are you ready for the easiest way to get everyone on board with cleaning your house at least once a week?
Invite Company Over!
Inviting other families into your home for a visit every week will help to motivate you and your children to clean your house. It is amazing to me that I can ask my children to complete their weekly chores, repeatedly, with little progress to show for my nagging. Meanwhile, if I say
“[Friends] are coming over tomorrow/today! I need [chore] done ASAP!”
My kids are ON IT! The job is done quickly and properly- often, the first time too!
Not only will your home be cleaner but it could also help you live 22% longer.! According to WebMD those who have a large circle of friends live an average of 22% longer than those who don’t. I don’t know a better way to strengthen friendships, than to invite them into your home! Another part of the article I loved was:
“companionship provided by friends may ward off depression, boost self-esteem, and provide support”
Moms need support! Whether we want it or not, we need it! We need to know that our family is normal! That our children’s bickering or behavior is no different than your friend’s kids. I love to get together with my mom friends and find out if they are having the same experience with bothering behavior. It helps me to know if my kids are normal or if I need to seek outside help.
Overall, the benefits are endless! I could probably write for another hour about how great having your friends over is. Consider it all a bonus to your clean house!
