The House Cleaning Habit - PDF Workbook
Let’s face it. If a list of house cleaning tasks was all that you needed to have a clean house, then you’d print out a list on Pinterest and get mopping.
But you’ve noticed that things don’t work that way. You think that maybe you need a better list. Then you start to convince yourself that it’s you. Your parents never taught you to clean, so you’re doomed to a messy house. Or, you tell yourself that you’re undisciplined. Or, maybe it sounds better to say that you’re too busy with more important things to worry about some dust (even though the condition of your home is a source of stress and embarrassment).
Forget those stories. The skills you need aren’t centered around your ability to sweep a floor. What you lack is habits and the skills that help support you in making a plan and then sticking to it.
I know, we tend to think of talk about habits in relation to things like dieting, writing a novel, stopping smoking, exercising, showing up on time at work. Actions that would make a difference to our health, career, or relationships.
Habits are small actions repeated (usually) daily. A clean house is the result of small actions repeated (usually) daily.
This guide doesn’t teach you how to dust or eliminate stubborn stains from upholstery. It doesn’t provide you with a dozen recipes for homemade, green cleaners. The focus here is on helping you develop the habits of having a clean house.
And because learning how to form and stick to habits involves transferrable skills, you’ll be able to use your habit-building skills to develop change in any area of your life.
The House Cleaning Habit is a 60+ page PDF book that includes charts and checklists that guide you through the process of developing the habits that give you a clean house.

The PDF files can’t be edited. You’ll print out the charts and fill them in with a pen because handwriting helps you stay focused and engaged in ways that typing on your computer wouldn’t allow.
