Do you struggle with keeping up on cleaning and organizing your home due to your mental health and motivation?

      I absolutely do. I concentrate on one thing a day, but then everything else gets backed up again. I just can't do it all like everyone expects me to be able to.

      Yes. I have days were I'm super motivated and energetic and I'm able to deep clean my room in 30 minutes. Then I have my days were I won't clean for weeks because I just can't get up and do it.

      😥 I have to force myself to do things. I get so tired of looking at the nasty house! Some days I'll work all day on it. Some days I don't do anything. It's hard to get the motivation. Everything I do makes me hurt.

      Yes but when I get going it’s hard to stop and I gin do myself up late late late night trying to clean :( but it’s already clean

      Yes, my home has a lot of clutter because I just don't have the motivation to clean most of the time. I live with two other people with mental health issues. One of them refuses to clean (or get help for his issues) so me and my sister just clean when we have the energy to do so. It's tough.

      Yessss! Such a big struggle for me. I wrote on a huge post it “now or later?” So I look at that and ask myself do I want to do it now or later because either way I’m going to do it eventually and feel like when I put it off for too long it makes me anxious. So if I have the capacity to do it now even if it’s not up to standard I do. I feel like it also gives me the grace to be like no now I really need to rest so I will do it later and it helps me to schedule that in rather than continuing to roll it over into the next day without actually planning on doing it.

      I go from being a perfectionist in my cleaning to not being able to for days. It's so hard to keep up with things. My car looks especially bad.

      It's definitely a factor. It's hard.

      Cleaning and organizing will come in phases for me. I struggle with sleep and self care and tummy issues.

      Always 😅 havent cleaned my room in months... because I need to take recycling to a separate place the amount of liquor bottles and cans have been building up.. been trying to do small steps though, like putting away old mail one day, and another day putting random bottles in a bag, etc, its slow but its progress

      Yes I do most of the time.

        @Lalapeanut I definitely never meet my goals for years now and make a little progress then backtrack

        • Lalapeanut

          680d

          @Freelion Exactly..1 step forward and 3 steps back pretty much every day. I used to be able to do so much more and I feel like a failure all the time.
