To keep your vacuum smelling fresh and not spreading stale, smelly air around your room, spritz your vacuum filter with an air freshener or a few drops of fragrant oils -- works great and will last a few weeks.
Start at the ceiling, vacuum/clean of all dust, cobwebs, etc. around the entire room. Then start at the left or right of the door and go in a circle around the room cleaning. If there's an interruption you can SEE where you left off. Finish with the floor, vacuum/mop your way out the door.
You work in a circle and include everything in your way as you're working, whether it's pieces of art, windows, etc. Don't forget the baseboards as you are doing the floor. When you work your way out the door, then shut the door to prevent any dirt entering from other cleaning you're doing.
TV is on and I'm sitting on here comfortably. I know I have move and shake my body more. I just get up and just start moving around otherwise I'll never notice the difference. Don't think about it, stop being lazy, JUST MOVE!!!!
I take a walk, lift weights, do sit ups, squats, jump or run in place...sometimes I just vacuum the whole house
