23 Jan 5 resolutions for a happy new home – any time of year!
It’s easy to get stressed out and caught up in the routines of life, but your new home should serve as a refuge after a crazy day. You don’t have to wait until the new year rolls around to have a happier home. Press reset at any time with these five resolutions.
Tap into your senses.
Research has shown that certain colors give us a natural boost. Select a hue for your walls that will lift your mood. Add in scented candles that evoke warmth or comforting smells. Include fabrics like plush throws or rugs that are soft to the touch. All of these details create an environment that is welcoming and peaceful.
Include your favorite memories in your home decor.
While digital photos are more and more common, it’s worthwhile to print and frame a few images to serve as reminders of good times. Capture priceless moments in a photo book for the fireplace in your living room. You can also have baby pictures, family vacation photos and much more printed on canvas, pillows or throws. When you’re surrounded by snapshots of happy days, they will spontaneously spark joy every day.
Need to save time during the busy mornings? Want to find out the weather before you get dressed? Don’t forget about the meeting after work. Smart devices are a convenient addition to any new home. Order essential grocery items online, turn up the music or set a reminder with the sound of your voice. The key is to make your daily schedule run smoother.
Create a calm home.
If you’re in Locust Grove, McDonough or Covington, you know there’s nothing quite like a quiet neighborhood. Things may still get a little hectic from time to time, so making space for a peaceful retreat in your dream house is a must. When you have a spacious floor plan, you have more options and a variety of ways to maximize each room in a custom-built home. Set aside an area for reflection, listening to music or simply reading a book. Make sure it’s comfortable and quiet. Start your day here or, when life gets a bit stressful, enjoy your retreat.
Connect with each other.
A new home is a perfect place to establish some new traditions. Whether you’re snuggling next to the fireplace on movie night or making pancakes for breakfast in your sparkling new kitchen, create opportunities for quality time together. Set aside family time for Family Fun Fridays or take a weekly walk through your beautiful new home community for the exercise and time away from your screens.
With these tips in mind, you can keep happiness front and center in your home all year long.
