5 Ways to Love Your Home

Updated: Apr 1, 2020


By now, we are all (hopefully) taking the #stayhome message to heart. We're doing our part to minimize the spread of this thing. And while there are soooo many unknowns, one thing is certain: we recognize that our home environments matter!


Maybe you have a beautifully decorated space and find joy in being able to spend more time in it.

Maybe all these consecutive days at home make you realize its needs a little TLC.


Regardless, there's no knowing how long our homes will essentially be our containers so getting to a place of appreciating it is pretty key.


Here are some simple ways to turn up the love your home.


1. MAKE YOUR BED

Ok, so if you're like me, you grew up with parents requiring you to make your bed before you left the house. I think the enforcement of this rule has led me to adopt the "messy bed" look for many years of adulthood. And, there's really nothing wrong with that.


But, there's something to be said about participating in organization and cleaning practices. Sorting that catch-all drawer, limiting the stack of dishes to look at, or smoothing your duvet neatly on your bed can be reasons to experience satisfaction and even calm.


For some people, doing certain chores can have a meditative quality to them: repetition, a mind clearing of sorts.


If you're not one of them, you're certainly not alone. Yet, shifting the way we look at these activities can make all the difference.


It's a taking of pride in your environment, one that has a subtle effect on your disposition as well as those who share your space.


2. PLAY UP PLANT CARE
