Spring Cleaning Playlist: Tunes to Get Motivated
We all know the only thing you want to do on your weekend off is curl up in your fleece heated blanket while you finish up that TV series on Netflix, but realistically, you're going to need to do one or two productive tasks during your free time.
As the seasons start to change this month, you'll want to dedicate a few hours to spring clean your home. From your living room to the guest bathroom, you need to dust, spray and wipe the surfaces for the best results.
Dreading the clean? We've got you covered. Make this motivational playlist to get yourself through the struggle.
1. 'Hakuna Matata' - 'The Lion King'
Start off with something simple and mood-lifting, like this classic from "The Lion King." You'll be reminded how to forget your worries while you discover a funky beat alongside that sock you lost five months ago.
2. 'Hooked on a Feeling' - Blue Swede
"Guardians of the Galaxy" may have brought this song back into the limelight, but you'll be wondering how you survived for so long without it.
3. 'Work It' - Missy Elliot
At this point, you've been cleaning for nearly 10 minutes - it's time to get in the groove. Put on that Missy you bought after the Super Bowl and let her guide you as you scrub the surfaces.
4. 'Stronger' - Kanye West
Feeling tired? Not anymore. Turn it up when you hit this song so it shows those dust particles just who's boss.
5. 'Uptown Funk' - Bruno Mars
This light dance track will help you transition between rooms, keeping you mobile while you fluff the pillows and de-crumb the cushions.
6. 'Footloose' - Kenny Loggins
Get out the broom or the vacuum, because you'll need a faux microphone for this one. Bonus? Your sporadic dance moves will help you cover more surface area with a cleaning appliance in hand.
7. 'It's Raining Men' - The Weather Girls
This can also be subbed for Shania Twain's "Man, I Feel Like a Woman."
8. 'Livin' La Vida Loca' - Ricky Martin
Get out the duster, the washcloths or the wipers, because this song is ideal for moving your arms and wrists in circular motions.
9. 'Push It' - Salt-N-Pepa
You're almost done at this point - just a few more minutes and you can take a well-deserved break.
10. 'Eye of the Tiger' - Survivor
Can you think of any other song better prepared to propel you to the finish line? The answer is no. End your cleaning day with the "Rocky" theme and you'll feel more accomplished than ever.
