  • I have pms, pmdd and clinical take what you get and kick it up about 40 notches. Those days I fix the boys something easy for breakfast and lunch, then we usually do movie days. They both get to pick a movie and we just lay around and be lazy.
    But they also know that when I'm in the mood to clean....they had better be ready to help. lol

  • I turn on some rockin fast tempo music, drink a cup of coffee, and dance around the house doing the easy stuff because I know if I do SOMETHING ill feel better than if I waste my day, even if its just something little.. Some days I still just waste my day.. but I have trouble sleeping on those days, and when my honey comes home he just doesn't seem as happy, and that kills me.. I think most people just have days like these, your not alone, but sometimes if you just dont give in to it, your day makes a turn for the better.. Good luck! God bless ♥

  • I turn on music! loretta lynn is my top motivator these days. I light a scented candle or inscent, and focus on one part of the house. if i'm not in the mood, as soon as I get goin I'm very motivated to get it done!

  • oh man! I feelya! But when i get in that kindofa funk I try snapping out of it by doing something, anything. the more you sit around and don't do anything, the deeper into a depression you get. good luck :)

  • I recently started working out, and it seems to be helping with my energy level. Before that, I had no motivation to do anything. I knew I had to do it, but I just could not find the energy to do it.

  • Then I don't clean the house or do anything.
    If I don't feel like cleaning, I don't clean. It's that simple.

    I agree that working out does help my motivation level a lot. It boosts my energy and gets me into a better spirit to get things done. Same with beautiful weather and sunshine!

  • I wait until I get the motivation. Luckily my husband has a thing for cleaning up when I don't feel like it. :)

  • When I don't feel like cleaning, I clean up just the stuff that can get nasty like throw out uneaten food. Then, I collapse on the couch and watch TV. Gotta have a break sometime! A great way to get motivated is to watch that show on A&E called "Hoarders." It's about people who don't throw away anything, and their houses are truly filthy. I ALWAYS clean the house after watching that show.
