As the new year begins, we often create New Year Resolutions, to set us on the right path as we kick of the year.
Resolutions can often be hard to stick with as the year unfolds so today we’re going to share with you some easy-to-follow resolutions that will make your home a cleaner, more beautiful, and efficient place for 2021.
Having a weekly and a daily cleaning schedule can help you stay on top of the everyday craziness, but you need to stick with it.
Daily: At the end of each day, you put the dirty dishes in the dishwasher, clothes get put into the hamper or hung up, and items get returned to their designated place.
Weekly: Write out a list of chores that you have left to do after the daily ones and then create specific days that you’ll do them.
For example: laundry will be on Mondays; you clean the bathrooms on Saturdays, etc.
When your home decor has holes or is faded, it can make you feel unmotivated, resulting in a difficult time staying on top of your to-do list and cleaning schedule you just created.
If you’re able to, invest in some new decor or even a couple of plants to help liven up your rooms.
The majority of us have at least one space in our home that seems daunting to think about decluttering but take this time to get on top of the project.
Start small and work your way up to the larger projects by focusing on junk drawers first, then closets, and then rooms.
Create a system that helps you get into a groove: Keep, Toss, Reuse, or Donate.
Try not to think about it too much and go with your first gut reaction when deciding what to do with each item.
Note. If your initial gut reaction is to keep everything, go with this formula: if you haven’t used it in six months, donate it or toss it.
Keeping your home healthy during the year can be difficult at times, especially during cold and flu season, and now with COVID-19.
Focus on creating a healthy home through regular cleaning, disinfecting, but also consuming nutritious ingredients.
Making these a priority can help reduce the risk that you or your family becomes ill now and in the future.
