1. Aim at cleaning one room at a time rather than the whole house. If the room is huge, break it down into small areas and make sure to rest by reading or gaming when you feel fatigued.
2. On a bad day clean only areas that may incorporate poor hygiene. Such as the toilet, hand sink, kitchen sink, and counter tops
3. Choose a lightweight vacuum cleaner the next time yours breaks. If you live in a two story house get one of those broomsticks for upstairs and downstairs so you don't have lug anymore than you have to.
4. Avoid clutter by getting in the habit of putting things away immediately. Encourage other family members to do the same. Throw away things when people aren't looking to clear all that "crap" that is lying around and never used.
5. Delegate chores you don't have the energy to do. Kids can throw a load of laundry on, empty waste baskets, or load a dishwasher.
6. Keep a basket near the bottom of the stairs so that you can carry several items up and down when necessary.
7. Choose clothes from easy-care fabrics. Just throw in the wash, dry, and fold.
8. When your feeling the urge to cook and take care of those you love, make extra portions and store them in the freezer for future use. This way they can take care of themselves when you need to rest.
9. If you find it hard to peel fresh vegetables keep a supply of frozen veggies in the freezer. They have the same nutrient content as their counterparts.
10. Keep the utensils you use a lot in easy-to-reach places.
