Dealing With Chronic Pain #11



This is what I have a problem with, Doing Household Chores. There was a day when I would get up whizzing through my day, cleaning away so I would have a nice clean and tidy home to live in. I miss those days. Here are some tips to hopefully get you through your day.

DOING HOUSEHOLD CHORES Part 1

1. Get a small utility cart- some fold, and most have at least two shelves. As you move about doing your chores, use the cart to carry your supplies or things that need to be put away. If you live in a two-story house, keep a cart on each level.

2. Pick- up tongs can retrieve things from hard-to-reach places. The tongs can be purchased from most medical supply houses or "back" stores.

3. A magnet tied to a string can help pick up thumbtacks, hairpins, and so forth. It will stick to your cart, refrigerator, or washing machine for quick availability.

4. Plan your chores so that you can go in a circle, rather than back and forth.

5. Keep a set of cleaning supplies in each area, where they are to be used to avoid carrying them around.

6. Long-handled sponges are good for hard-to-reach areas.



7. To clean your bathtub, sit on a low stool next to the tub and use a long-handled sponge, or clean it at the end of your bath. Then rinse both you and it.

That's it for now, I have more coming in a few days.

What do you do to make cleaning easier?
