Things Need to Change…

Things Need to Change…

Your home and the space that you live in can have a massive impact on your mood. It could be that you feel sluggish and unmotivated when you walk through the door, or that you go into a total state of relaxation and don’t want to do anything for fear of being snapped out of it. There are certain jobs that you can do around the home to make you feel a bit more fresh, get you moving and have a long impact. Things that you won’t need to do again for a while, but make all the difference when they’re done.

Clean your blinds and curtains

Most people don’t realise that both curtains and blinds can get as dirty as anything else – after all, they are hung up in your home absorbing everything in the air that they possible can. Especially in kitchens, you may find that any upholstery has a greasy sheen to it, or is a bit sticky/stiff to the touch due to the fumes that are emitted when cooking. Give them a bit of love and treat them to a wash. Roller blinds can be hard to manage to get clean, but a simple wipe-over should suffice. Other blinds such as vertical blinds can be taken off and washed individually – a long and laborious task but one that will be worth the effort made when you see what a difference it makes to your room.

Change your bed, change your mattress

A lot of people know that changing your bedsheets will lift your mood and give you something to look forward to upon your return, but few people know that your mattress is recommended by professionals to be changed at least one every eight years. It’s not an everlasting investment; mattresses change over time just as your body does, and they may not be changing at the same rate or in sync with one another. What started out as the best and most comfortable home for your body to sleep on can eventually turn out to be causing damage and discomfort, as much as you may think that it’s comfortable still to sleep on. Read reviews on the best one to get for both your needs and your budget at sites such as https://www.mattress-guides.net/top-mattress-back-stomach-side-sleep-position/ – it’s best to see the pros and cons of each product before making your decision.

Go around the skirting of your home

You may not notice what places are getting especially dusty around your home until you’ve actually dusted them and noticed how the room has lifted. Go around the skirting boards and the doorframes of your home – any ledges which may be sticking out are in need of a wipe-down to get them back to how they’re meant to be. It’s strange how much it can do to lift your mood, but living and working in a clear and clean space can create this feeling.

Wipe on top of your cupboards and wipe them out

Much the same as skirting boards, cupboards are often forgotten and neglected as something that will need a good clean more than once a year. In your kitchen, just as your blinds will have done, cupboards can get grease sticking to them quite easily – but again, just like blinds, it will only need a simple wipe-down if it’s not that bad. The tops of cupboards are often forgotten, but they will need a clean too! There is so much dirt and dust that can gather on top of them, and once it’s all done you at least know that you don’t have to make such an effort for quite a long time. The sense of achievement out of doing such a mundane task is something that can be focused on for quite a while afterwards.

Go through your drawers and get out clothes

Take out all the clothes that you haven’t ever worn, have no intention of wearing again or that don’t fit you. Hold on to the stuff that you are sentimentally attached to and put to one side – everything else, put into a bag for charity, give away to friends or list for sale. Not only will it give you the space to go out and buy things that you will want and love, but it will clear out so much unnecessary stuff in your life that could be otherwise holding you back; if you clear out a space in your drawers or wardrobe, you are clearing out a space in your mind.

Rearrange your wardrobe to make everything fit

After arranging all of your clothes and chucking out those pieces that don’t warrant being in there anymore, rearrange your wardrobe to fit in everything neatly and try and couple up outfits together that you know will work. Organise sections for daytime, evening and office wear; what may take you a bit of time to accomplish now will save you tons of time in the future.

Declutter your life

The last step towards shaking off that sluggish feeling! It’s one thing to declutter your wardrobe, but a whole different level to try and declutter your house. Getting rid of everything that is unnecessary and brings you no joy is a hard thing to do, as we make up theories of when something made us happy and try to cling onto it for as long as possible – it’s part of our human nature. However, there are some things that you will put to one side and throw away and you will never even notice that they have gone – you may have a faint memory of them in the future when you look back on old photos, but the impact that they are making when they are there is probably non-existent. This can include everything from books that have been read once and are shelved just for show, to ornaments that hold no worth or meaning to you. Decide what needs to go and make the change for the good of yourself and your health.

EAT FRESH

The food you put into your body has a huge impact on the purity of your life. If you’re eating copious amounts of refined, processed foods, it’ll be hard to achieve that healthy lifestyle. Eating the right food is easy. There’s no trick to getting the hang of things. All you need to do is make sure you’re eating as much fresh food as possible. Eat as much fruit and veg as you can. Make your meals wherever possible. You’ll see the benefits in no time!

STAY HYDRATED

It’s hard to live a pure life if you aren’t drinking enough. Dehydration has an effect on your body and your mind. If you’re feeling low for no reason, chances are you should be drinking more. The effects water has on the body are immense. Find out how much you should be drinking, and get to work to achieve the goal! Think, too, about the type of water you’re drinking. There are all sorts of ethical issues with bottled water, so avoid that where you can. Buy yourself a reusable bottle and fill it at the sink. This option is more ethically sound, and will save you a lot of money. The only downside is the chemicals in tap water. Look into water purification with a company like http://www.ncwater.net/ to make sure you’re not drinking anything nasty!

KEEP FIT

Keeping fit is another important factor in living a purer life. The trick to getting the hang of exercise is to set yourself an attainable goal. Know how much exercise you can manage, and don’t push yourself too hard. Even a half hour walk each day will make a huge difference to the life you’re living. If you want to deal with your mind at the same time, try doing some yoga!
