All of your points are true for me, too.
Getting dressed, showering (or washing face/brushing teeth), and wearing shoes or slippers makes a HUGE difference.
I cannot live without lists - that's how I got through full-time college + full-time job.
I am amazed at how much I can get done in just 10 or 15 minuets of focused cleaning. I never feel like I have to set aside an entire afternoon to clean my house anymore since I'm aware of how much can be done in such small chunks of time.
I've also found that wearing an apron while cooking and cleaning helps me tremendously
(all around the house). Seriously. Try it.
Compartmentalized thinking is also key: one area at a time, one task at a time. Do things in "chunks."
