What’s on your list of goals for the new year? Even if you aren’t keeping a set of resolutions, one promise you can make to yourself is to keep your home clean. Here are some easy ways of achieving that goal.
Get Rid of Clutter
Even if you don’t believe in feng shui, you know that having a messy, disorganized house can affect your mood and quality of life. Start the new year in the right direction by getting rid of any clutter in your home. Look at what you have now, and decide what you can stand to part with. After all, you have plenty of gifts to go through and sort. Once you know what clothes and electronics you’d like to get rid of, don’t let them linger. Take them to a thrift shop or another donation center, or find friends and family to give your old items away to.
Pay Attention to the Little Things
The next step is to pay attention to the little things. It’s easy to focus your efforts on the kitchen and the bathroom, but what about some of the areas you usually don’t think about when it comes to cleaning? Take some time to clean out your closets – not just for what it is them, but for dust and other residues. You should also clean your shower curtain and wash your bedding if that’s something that you tend to neglect because you spend your laundry days cleaning clothes and towels.
Freshen Up the Air
How is the air inside your home? The air you breathe can affect how good you feel as well. Make sure your carbon monoxide detectors are working. Then change the filters in furnaces and HVAC units. Then look at the vents on the outside of your home and clean them off, if necessary.
Focus on Your Plan
Everything is easier when you make a plan. Whatever your plan is, focus on it. Create your plan and try to follow through on it every day for the rest of January. Then keep it up for all of February. It takes about three weeks to form new habits, so form some new ones this year!
