Sometimes we all need some cheering up. Home should be a happy healthy place to escape from the negativity and stress of your family’s outside lives. There’s always room for more happiness in your life. Home is a good foundation to build security and comfort to your life and to your family.
Let in the light! Natural light is healthy and helps lift your mood. If you need privacy then let light come in the top half of your blinds, above eye level. Sheer curtains also work well to let in the light without sacrificing your privacy.
Sort Mail Immediately
Piles of mail create clutter and add up very quickly. As soon as you receive mail, immediately throw out the junk mail, sort/pay your bills, make/add to your grocery list so you can toss the flyer, cut your coupons, and erase the stress of forgetting to pay something or adding to clutter around the house.
Clean Your Windows
And then open them! Fresh air is a great way to freshen up your home and let out the stale air. We tend to open our windows more at night for better sleep.
Fill Your Home With Energizing Citrus Scents
Citrus scents can be achieved by boiling lemons and oranges. We then use the infused water to make cleaning products that also help give our home an invigorating feel. Essential oils are also great and easy to use.
Plants are great for filtering the air and providing your family with more oxygen. Snake plants are easy to grow in any room and green colors are calming.
Keep Work Areas Clear
Kitchen counters, desks, sinks, most surfaces that serve a purpose should be kept clear in order to serve their purpose. How can you be motivated to make a great meal in a cluttered kitchen? Clutter equals stress, clear it all away!
Bake bread, cakes, cookies. Baking is a great way to make everyone feel welcome in your home. We try to bake something once a week. Bake with your children and with your spouse to create memories. Memories transform a house into a home.
There is almost always upbeat background music playing in our kitchen. We do a lot of singing and dancing in the kitchen. Its hard to be in a bad mood with happy music on!
Remind yourself and your family to be grateful for your home and for everyone in it. Pictures of great times spent together are great to remind yourself of all your happy memories. Be thankful for what you have.
Add Your Personality
Your home is a reflection of yourself. Make sure it is full of reminders of people and things that make you happy. Don’t have a home to impress other people. Have a home that serves you and your family. Your opinions of your home are what matter most.
