Cleaning and Other Housework with chronic pain

Basic household cleaning can stress both your brain and your body. These simple tips might help to alleviate some of the problems, leaving you more time and energy for what you love.



  • What can you do in 5 minutes? Pick out a chore you want to tackle, set a timer, and go! Stop when the timer goes off to prevent over exertion; if you feel pretty good after a brief rest, set it for another 5 minutes and start over.
  • Even on a blustery day, opening your windows for a few minutes will make your home (and your body!) feel fresher, even if you don't have the time or energy to clean.
