It’s easy to feel burnt out after weeks spent staying on top of a busy work schedule, getting the kids ready for school, and keeping up with your ever-growing list of household chores.
In our hectic lives, it’s easy to feel stressed out and overwhelmed. And over time these feelings of stress can feel draining, and even sap your energy and creativity.
When the things that used to fuel and excite you have gotten lost in the to-do lists and endless tasks, it’s time to recalibrate, and find new places to turn for energy and inspiration.
Did you know that one of the very best places to turn may be your very own home?
After all, your home is your refuge, a calming oasis you can turn to when it’s time to escape from the stresses of a busy day. In fact, there are strong scientific links showing the incredible calming and rejuvenating effects of a clean living space. For example, did you know that:
- Living in a decluttered, clean environment has been shown to help dramatically reduce stress levels?
- Having a clean work station has been shown to significantly increase productivity and drive?
- A study of 1000 Americans found that people with the cleanest homes were also the healthiest and most active overall?
- In one prominent research study, women who spent time in cleaner environments adopted healthier lifestyle habits than those in “chaotic,” messy spaces?
In short? Having a fresh, clean space can be truly transformative, allowing you to feel inspired and excited once again.
Looking for some easy ideas to get started? Here are a few easy ways you can clean and refresh your home, so it can do its job of helping you feel calm, invigorated, and inspired:
Take Some Time to Refresh and Renew
Who says you need an expensive kitchen remodel or total home makeover to make your space feel brand new and inspiring once again? There are all sorts of hacks you can use throughout your space to create a refreshing, inspiring atmosphere.
For instance? Adding a new coat of paint to old walls or beat-up doors can help the space feel fresh and new again. Similarly, making even a few minor upgrades – like switching out old light fixtures or cabinet hardware – can add a new finish, just what it takes to help you appreciate your space with fresh eyes.
Just as importantly? If it’s been awhile since your last deep clean, taking some time to tend to your home’s dirtiest areas can make an enormous difference. From using your favorite green cleaning solution (and elbow grease) to tend to your hardwood floors, to shampooing your carpets and rugs, to getting the dust and dirt of your home’s most-overlooked or hard-to-reach areas, a good cleaning can go a long way towards helping you feel better. A home free of dirt, clutter, and grime can help you breathe easier (literally), and start to truly enjoy your home again.
Add a Few Flourishes to Create a Spa-Like Atmosphere
Your home should be your oasis, the tranquil spot where you get away from it all. What better way to maximize the positive vibes than by adding luxurious, spa-like finishes throughout your home?
Fortunately, you don’t need to break the bank to make your home feel like a five-star resort. Instead, a few simple switches and upgrades can make a world of difference. Think of your favorite hotel or retreat amenities, and then think strategically about how you can recreate the effect in your own place.
Just a few small touches is all it takes! Try setting out soaking salts in a glass jar around the bathtub with a special wooden scoop, for easy access at bathtime. Scatter your favorite candles and reed diffusers with soothing scents throughout your home, or bring in a Himalayan salt lamp or your favorite dried herbs. Swap out your ratty old towels for fluffy new ones. Start wearing comfy house slippers. Break out the expensive hand lotion. Basically? Do whatever it takes to help you feel rested, recharged, and pampered – because you deserve nothing less.
Use Essential Oils Around Your Home
Essential oils are a powerful shortcut for a refreshing and reinvigorating atmosphere throughout your home. Made from expelling the “essence” of healthful plants and flowers from across the globe, these versatile materials make for powerful cleaning agents, and are great for making household cleansers that are totally green (and smell amazing).
In addition to their use in cleaning, you can put essential oils to work around the house – so you can focus on relaxing! Some essential oils help make for all-natural, clean pest repellents. In other cases, you can use essential oil diffusers to spread your favorite scent in the air, helping add to that spa-like feeling in your home, without burning candles. Scents like peppermint, lemon, and lavender help create a soothing, fresh environment that’s sure to excite, inspire, and make you look forward to coming home.
