Do not treat cleaning as some big event that you are conducting.
Do not use a new dish if a similar one is in the sink. Wash it and use it.
Clean just 3 dishes whenever you get to the kitchen sink.
While speaking over the phone (use headphones), broom the house or cook a meal.
Clean only 1 room at a time. Cleaning an entire house might feel overwhelming that you may not start it just by thinking about it.
These simple rules have helped me get more things done in the long term.
