Get Your Kids to Help You Clean With Some Tips From Fresh Living!


If your house needs a hand and there are kids around, why not put them to work? They may not always enjoy helping tidy the home, but here are some ways to make it more fun for them and, by extension, less painful for you!



Setting the Process


The age of the child can be a slight trick to this, but all the same, having them enjoy the process is what helps. It can be frustrating to forget the tasks at hand, so a chalkboard checklist can make all the difference in the world! It may only be scratching item X or item Y off at a given time, but if there’s a set reward at the end… well, we’ll get there in a moment!


Keeping it Realistic


Remember that time you perfectly finger-painted Monet’s Water Lilies when you were six?

Probably because that’s not a thing kids do. Toddlers and young children aren’t known for their dexterity or situational awareness, that’s why watching them chase the ball around in soccer is often so darned cute!


Lower dexterity is why it might be a little difficult for the younger kids to make the bed, or neatly fold their laundry. Rather than applying the tykes to frustrating tasks, get them to work from their strengths: dogged determination and an abundance of energy (that you wish would shut down by 8pm most nights)!

Getting their dirty clothes into the laundry hamper, putting their shoes away nicely, putting toys and art supplies back where they belong, keeping the floors of common areas straightened up, having them use the vacuum, or pick weeds – there are plenty of tasks that kids are happy to do. Opportunities to contribute to the order and goodness of the household, and appropriate praise, are a staple. Speaking of which….



The Other "R-Word"


We’ve talked Realistic. It’s time to discuss “rewards.” Whether you believe in allowances or not, children like knowing there’s a carrot at the end of the race. Allowances work fine, but another consideration is an arbitrary “points” system. I mean, you were going to take them to see that new animated movie anyhow, right? That puts the tasks they do into their capable hands – if they want to go to the movie and they feel responsible for the actions they take to get to the movie, then obedience is second-nature behind what they chose to do.

Saskatoon Cleaning Experts at Fresh Living Speak About the Psychology of Cleaning

The Psychology of Clean

 



A full day’s work can leave many of us drained, and for those that are rife with energy, the plans following a day at the office usually involve a quick-change into something more comfortable and a quicker turnaround to get out for the next social. But the work bag stays put on the couch. The dish in the sink from a speedy meal the night before continues to soak. Perhaps you rushed out the door in the morning and didn’t have time to make the bed. How long have those pajama pants been in the corner?






It can be funny to think about, eliciting a self-inflicted eye roll, but items out of place, even minor clutter, can have consequences.


Neuroscience tells us that a cluttered workspace can have a direct, negative impact on the amount of work that gets done by pulling the brain in different directions, inhibiting both creativity and productivity. I should probably find a drawer for my multicoloured Post-Its, and I haven’t the faintest as to how the painter’s tape got out here.


New paragraph, less stuff on desk. I think it’s working!



Aside from focus, the mind can often parrot the state of the environment; that is to say, chaos in the home, even organized chaos, can have an impact on our focus and mindset.

 

The space we live in should be comfortable – the creature comfort of familiarity, even with a mess, can be the norm for some – but does that make it okay to do? Within reason, yes, but adding clutter to the environment can have a lasting effect by making it harder to relax through a created sense of guilt: “I need to clean this.” It can also produce anxiety, especially as the work needed to alleviate the situation grows larger and further beyond your control.


Organizational psychology has shown us that in most environments in our lives, even classrooms, orderliness becomes a metric for an individual’s enjoyment of the space.


So what’s the answer, then?

It starts with self-discipline. We all crave structure, but it can be hard after a long day to maintain that structure. Done with that tea mug? Put it in the dishwasher, or give it a quick rinse in the sink. Take the extra minute and make the bed in the morning. In fact, if a task takes less than 5 minutes, get it done – see if that doesn’t improve your day! Alas, the problem can sometimes come back to time. Maybe you get home at 5, and have dinner plans at 6. Maybe you just want to spend the weekend kicking back, after a stressful stint at the office.

Clean air with an 'all-inclusive' attitude!

Have you recently travelled somewhere hot and 'beachy'?

Whether you had the opportunity or not to get down to Mexico or somewhere else warm this travel season, we wanted to remind you that you can have that 'all-inclusive' feel right in your very own home...
Okay... we don't bring the sandy beach and bikinis with us but we do have a unique approach to furnace and duct cleaning.

Many other duct cleaning companies tend to surprise their customers with expensive add-ons and hidden charges that weren't part of the previous conversation.

When you book with Caliber, the price is determined by the information you provide and what promotions we are offering. When our team arrives for the cleaning, pricing doesn’t change unless YOU decide to add on additional services that may add significant value to your home’s indoor air quality.

*Remember…if it’s too good to be true…it probably is! Always look at the fine print and if the company you have called can’t provide honest answers to their pricing and procedures then move on to the next. Call Caliber Air Repair! 306-384-1375

When you choose Caliber for your furnace and duct cleaning needs, you choose peace of mind. Our pricing allows you to budget for the service and save money, knowing that the cost discussed up front is exactly what you’ll spend.
