Modern life is full of hustle and bustle and a constant lack of time. Often, when it's time to clean, we put it off until later and then feel overwhelmed by the mess.

Living in a clean and tidy space is not only pleasant but also good for your health and well-being. That's why House Digest shared tips on how to keep things tidy and feel good.

Most people perceive cleaning as a necessary, but very unpleasant and tedious process. That's why they regularly put it off and leave their homes in a state of disarray.

When there is too much dirt, they start a thorough cleaning that takes a whole day or even two, which only increases their dislike of the process.

How to clean your home without despairing: the one-hour rule

Therefore, experts recommend systematically cleaning your home, spending no more than one hour on it, so as not to burn out. This can help you not to overwork and achieve significant results.

Strategy for closing or opening a shift

Try to treat cleaning like a job. You'll spend exactly as much time as you've planned, and then you'll go to rest. To keep track of time, you can set a timer.

It is also advisable to make one-hour cleaning a clear part of your routine and know exactly when you will devote time to it. For example, you can do it in the morning or in the evening, as a routine for opening or closing your shift at work.

If you're a night owl, it might be a good idea to spend an hour cleaning right before you go to bed. That way, you'll wake up in a tidy environment in the morning, which will definitely improve your mood.


Following a one-hour strategy can help reduce the stress of cleaning your home. However, you must have the right mindset for it to work.

Be realistic and don't expect to get everything done in just an hour. Remember that progress comes gradually, through regular effort.

When creating your cleaning schedule, set aside a separate day for each part of your home. For example, you can spend an hour on Monday cleaning your bedroom, an hour on Tuesday cleaning your kitchen, and so on.

Also, don't forget to praise yourself for the work you've done. Always take the time to analyze and recognize how much you've accomplished in a day, week, or month. Track your progress and be proud of your achievements.
