The last couple of years have been really tough for everyone. The pandemic has really changed our outlook on many things – our families, our friendships, our work and reassess what is important in our lives. It has also given us the opportunity to take time to restructure what we do and how we do it – things like dealing with our personal relationships and even our mental health. It’s important at times like these to take a few small steps every day to make even the tiniest improvements; what we eat for instance, or how we balance our work and family life, how we react under pressure and even, how we keep our home.
Small changes do make a big difference and one way of making fresh starts and positive change is to declutter, reorganise and tidy up our homes. What is the adage; a tidy home equals a tidy mind? Helping declutter and refresh your home will have an impact on relieving some of the stresses brought on by the pandemic. University of Wisconsin Hospitals and Clinics psychologist Shilagh Mirgain stresses how our home and work environment has an important influence on our sense of well-being which can often be overlooked. It has been two years of unsurity, insecurity and financial woes but it doesn’t have to stay like that. It’s time to start paving a new way and making positive changes, that can begin with your home.
As we have been spending more time at home during the last couple of years, our flooring will most likely be worn out and scruffy. Changing flooring can be a relatively cheap and easy way to completely transform your living spaces and the options and choices in terms of materials and colours are endless.
