Are you someone who loves to embrace change, let go of what isn’t working and plan for something better? If so, making New Year’s resolutions for your home is a great way to start the year off with intention and potentially create new habits that will lead both you and your family into 2021 feeling happier, healthier, and more organized.
Nobody ever said you had to wait until spring to do heavy cleaning.
Spring cleaning is intended to free us from the accumulated possessions that have racked up over the winter months. This is why a “no clutter” rule is an excellent home resolution.
Decluttering your home is a great way to reduce stress and add some extra value to your home. Starting off the new year with a clean slate can provide a sense of accomplishment through making new and organized spaces in which you can relax.
From reorganizing kitchen cupboards to purging any clutter from living areas, decluttering will help create a more positive atmosphere throughout your home. Not only will removing all unnecessary items from overflowing rooms feel like therapy; the end result of a cleaner, simpler space in which you can actually enjoy being in will be incredibly rewarding.
It is often said that organizing your house should precede anything else when setting your New Year’s Resolutions – so why not give yourself a head start?
With regretful donations and mindful purchases, neatly organized space awaits.
With the arrival of a new year, it is the perfect time to consider how you can save money and be more environmentally responsible. Reducing your utility bills is an excellent resolution that can help you achieve both of these goals simultaneously.
The money saved from cutting back on your electricity, gas, water, and other utilities can add up quickly and provide extra funds for fun hobbies or to support other financial objectives. Additionally, taking steps to reduce your utility usage can also combat climate change as it lessens demand on non-renewable energy sources like fossil fuels.
Reasonable ways to lower utility costs include choosing sustainable appliances with high energy-efficiency ratings, adjusting the temperature of your air conditioner or heater depending on the season or time of day, using rechargeable batteries instead disposable ones, and unplugging electronics when not in use.
You are sure to be happy with this resolution long after the new year has passed!
Creating Daily and Weekly Tasks
Creating a daily and weekly chore list is an effective tool for a successful and organized New Year. A chore list can help bring peace and order to your home, especially if you are living with other people. It can also help you stay on top of things that need to get done, such as keeping up with the laundry, dusting, vacuuming – essentially any tasks that keep your home clean and cozy.
Furthermore, breaking down larger tasks into smaller ones makes them easier to handle; this will also encourage a healthy workflow in your home, so duties are distributed fairly and efficiently.
Finally, having a daily and weekly chore list will give you the satisfaction of crossing off your completed tasks and the pleasure of seeing the progress that has been made over time.
Keeping The Air Clean
Making a concerted effort to keep the air purified in your home is a fantastic new year resolution to make this year.
Air pollution can be caused by various sources and chemicals inside and outside of our living spaces, making it hard to breathe and potentially leading to long-term health problems. To combat this, you can install an air purifier in your home. These filters reduce airborne pollutants, such as dust, smoke, pollen, and bacteria that can cause allergies or illnesses.
Additionally, having an air purifier will cut down on stale odors in your home, helping you stay refreshed throughout the day. This New Year take the initiative to cleanse your air for a healthier and safer living space.
Making New Year’s resolutions for your home is a great way to kick off the new year. You are not only setting tangible objectives for yourself and your family, but you are also teaching crucial lessons about planning and delayed gratification.
Furthermore, studies have shown that sticking to your resolutions might have long-term health and well-being benefits. Instead of promising to go to the gym more or eat less chocolate this year, decide to enhance your house and quality of life. You’ll be glad you did (as will your loved ones).
