1) Create a cosy home
Make sure your rooms are comfortable with everything around you being familiar or nostalgic. Create a relaxed atmosphere, a place for fun and giggles, create a sense of connection and belonging.
Clearing clutter feels good, you’ll have more space, it’s easier to clean and an organised home goes a long way towards creating a calm home. When everything has its place there’s less likely to be drama looking for ‘lost’ items during a busy morning and getting out the door for the day ahead.
3) Enjoy your possessions
Things you love bring you joy, your camera/phone keeps hold of memories, your music is uplifting, a painting or print on the wall may remind you of a special holiday.
4) Cleaning & Laundry
Cleaning and laundry is a never ending cycle. However, there’s ways to make it easier, for example complete a small task each day, which is better than spending your entire Saturday on the job or put together a roster to share the jobs around the family, so the load isn’t entirely on one person in the family. Perhaps create a playlist of uplifting music for cleaning.
Make it work for you and your family’s schedule, so the result is a clean, comfortable home with the least amount of stress.
Just a plug at this point for Sonett, as it’s much more pleasant cleaning with the calming and relaxing aromas of natural and organic essential oils or fragrance free sensitive/neutral range for the young or sensitive.
5) Family connections
Put rules in place to foster your relationships, such as no phones at the dinner table, no television during your family meals either. Make it a time to share and connect in our busy lives.
6) Rituals and celebrations
Celebrate family achievements, light a beeswax candle. Connect with nature and the seasons with a table centrepiece of apples, and golden leaves in autumn, a vase of bare branches in winter, spring flowers and summer flowers and fruits.
There’s no need for it.
