If you have a long day ahead of you, start it off right by getting the dishes out of the way. Do them first thing and you’ll be amazed at how much more space you have to work with in your kitchen. You’ll also be less likely to want to make a big mess if the kitchen is all clean!

10. Minimize screen time
Try to find a friend to do the dishes with. Not only is it more fun, but they can help you clean up faster. Having someone else there helps motivate you, as well as provide company.
If that’s not an option, then try to get the dishes done at a time when you are feeling most productive. You may be more inclined to get it done in the evening or morning than you would be in the afternoon.
Doing the dishes is not something that should take long if you’re on top of it. It’s best to wash them soon after use so that food does not have time to stick on or dry out.
It’s also important to make sure you have all the right equipment before getting started. You need soap, a scrubber, and plenty of hot water available at your disposal. Without any of these things, you’ll just be wasting your time.
Set a goal for yourself and hang it up somewhere where you will see it every day until you achieve that goal. That way, when you feel unmotivated or like giving up, you can look at your goal and remind yourself why it was that you started doing this in the first place.

1. Start with the dishes.
It’s amazing how much more relaxed you’ll feel once the sink is empty. This is especially true if you are lucky enough to have a dishwasher, since those things take up so much space in your sink. If you don’t have one, then I guess start with the dishes that stack up the most. Like coffee mugs and cereal bowls.
2. Do little things to help out other people as you go through your day.
I don’t know why but I have this thing where I like to help other people out with little things. Like yesterday my roommate was rushing out the door and she couldn’t find her keys, so I stopped what I was doing (which was setting up my new vacuum) and helped her find her keys. It only took me a minute or two and it made her day!
3. Get outside for at least 30 minutes every day.
If you’re anything like me, then you probably spend too much time cooped up inside your apartment staring at screens all day long. Getting outside will not only help clear your head but it will also make you feel more connected to the world around you, which is always a good thing!
4. Make plans for next weekend now so
