Refresh & De-Stress: 6 Ways To Tidy Your Home Like A Pro

So, here we are once again, saying goodbye to winter and counting down the days to spring…

And with it, the new season comes with the urge to transition our wardrobes and our homes. And that means spring cleaning in a way that not only refreshes but de-stresses too, which will transform your home into a cozy, fresh haven!

So, if you’re ready to tidy your home like a pro, then you’ve come to the right place! Here are our top tips for spring cleaning your home like you never have before!


1. Start with organizing:




No spring cleaning can be done without going through your things deciding whether or not to keep them, or reorganizing them into a space that keeps your home clean and tidy.

And because clutter is one of the main causes of stress in the home, you need to make sure you’re on top of it all!

The only way to remove clutter from your life is by taking action against it, and when you can buy cute little things that make organization easier, means you can do it with ease and with style.

Here are our picks that will help you keep your home organized and fresh:




2. Take a look at your colors:




Believe it or not, but the color scheme in your home can really affect your mood. For example, colors like blue are really peaceful, calming colors unlike colors like red and yellow.

And patterns may be a good way to spruce up your house, but too much of it can make things a little chaotic and busy. So, it best to keep your basics as neutral as possible and then to add in some lively extras.




3. Know how to play with the light:




Darker rooms can, of course, keep you in a low mood and won’t bring you much energy. Just think of it this way, a flower needs sunshine to grow, and so do you!

So, even if you have minimal natural light to play with I would advise knowing how to bounce it, and you can do this with mirrors that are strategically placed. This will bring extra brightness to your room, making it feel fresher!

My next tip is to avoid using ceiling lights when possible, these can be too bright and not affect your mood positively.

Make it cozy with floor and desk lamps and watch how this will change your mood! Take a look at some of our choices:




4. Bring the outside in:




Seeing as it’s nearly spring, means it’s time to get tropical! Add some plants and greenery into your home for an instant mood boost. This won’t only elevate you but will make the home fresher and more oxygenated!

And there’s a science behind them – by including them in your house, you’ll actually be placing calming factors in your space.

So, see your stress levels disappear with these uplifters:




5. Surround yourself with positivity:




I’ve started a wall of positivity in my home. Recently I’ve discovered that I should showcase the moments I’m most proud of, my steps to success and things that bring me joy.

And it’s important to have these little reminders around your home. They will uplift you and even motivate you towards your goals.

You can do this easily with pictures of loved ones, motivational messages on posters and your accomplishments. Check out how you can do this:



6. Bring it all together:


So, once you have all these components come together, it’s your chance to add the finishing touches. And these are my favorite!

They are the things that make a house a home. And these can even include a few de-stressors! Things like candles and diffusers can add peace and calm to your home and even make it a sanctuary for you relax in!
