Time management: How the cleaning in the house to turn into a holiday?

Somehow at a seminar on time management I heard an interesting term – “frog”. So the coach called a petty, nasty, but necessary. For example, an unpleasant conversation with your boss. Or a trip to the dentist. Something that you the thing tomorrow, but sooner or later it will still have to do. I tried to find “frogs” in the household, to finally deal with them

Basic rules of combat frogmen:1. Every morning, “eat” one “the frog”

As a rule, an unpleasant business, all the time postponed at the last moment, and then is moved to another day, and again, and again… In the end annoys you the idea about the case.

Not to make “frog” “elephant”, experts in time management recommend to deal with them in the first place. Woke up, washed up, drank the invigorating coffee? Now go and make the most unpleasant of those that are scheduled for today. But then you can with a clear conscience to enjoy your day knowing that you can afford. If this method becomes a habit, you nasty “frogs” in your home every day will be less and less, and many of them will be made on the machine.2. Share “frog” on the part

Long and laborious work can be divided into parts and take breaks between jobs. But each part must be met at the appointed time.3. Sweeten the pill

Invent yourself a prize that you get when you deal with another “frog”. For example, clean to Shine the bowl, indulge in a warm bath with aromatic oils. In addition, find the positive moments in the process. For example, think about what, 40 minutes wielding a duster, you burn several hundred calories and be one step closer to the ideal figure.4. Home “frogs” and effective ways of dealing with them:

Old but effective method of cleaning a toilet without chemicals: pour a uniform layer throughout the inside of the toilet baking soda (it will take about a bundle), leave overnight and in the morning walk with the brush and rinse with water.

Ventilation grille

This is one of the most remote places in the bathroom and in the kitchen. Bars it is desirable to remove and soak for several hours in a solution of any detergent. But if it is not possible to remove the grille, spray it with a spray bottle with a mixture of baking soda and vinegar and clean with an old toothbrush.


To clean the microwave even old stains can be easy and simple. Put it in a glass of water with lemon juice and turn on the oven for 7-10 minutes. Then just wipe it with a sponge.
