I don’t have ADD or ADHD. I can focus on tasks and get them done when I need to. But when it comes to cleaning… I can’t for the life of me start one project or area and finish it. I have to clean the ENTIRE house. I pick up some stuff in one room and go to put them away in another room and then clean in there for a while and so on.
The other day I was frustrated with the messy house because I had JUST cleaned the entire thing the day before so I told myself that I absolutely could not clean anything but the kitchen and family room since those are the areas that bug me the most. I forced myself to only clean there and felt so awesome when it was done.
Of course I immediately went on to clean the entire rest of the house. But it felt BETTER cleaning the rest of the house knowing the kitchen was already done 🙂
