The man said, ” I just hate housework. I really hate it! You make the beds and wash the dishes and two or three weeks later you just have to do it all over again.”
Messes affect us. They lower our morale and make it harder to get organized. We think less of ourselves when we’re living in a mess. Those of us with ADD or ADHD need strategies to help us cope with either cleaning up a mess or preventing one from forming in the first place.
One strategy for cleaning is small steps, don’t try to do it all at once. For preventing, we need to form rules and make them into habits. A rule will be, I straighten my desk each night. ( For example. That’s not one of my rules. My desk shows it.)
