You are probably doing your best to enjoy the great outdoors when weather is still nice, but so many reports are making it sound like many of us will still be
working remotely well into 2021 due to the coronavirus pandemic. Here are some ideas to make my home feel more like an oasis for when we need to stay home.
Start looking for ways now to make your home feel more comfortable and spacious.
Give yourself more elbow room, and make your space more livable.
First, look for obvious collections of unused items. Do you have boxes that you brought from your old job that you’ve never opened, or cooking appliances that you never take down from the shelves? Do you have sports equipment, exercise gear, or hobby-related supplies that you no longer need? Try to toss, recycle, or donate things that contribute to crowding but never get used, so you open up space.
Pay special attention to clothing. Do you have clothes that your children have outgrown, formal business suits that you don’t wear anymore, sports or exercise outfits that you no longer use, maternity clothes? Be honest about items that no longer fit.
Also, look for messy areas that create visual noise. You’ll feel such relief when you clear them out! Areas that often become awash in stuff include the bottoms of closets, bedrooms chairs or side-tables, kitchen counters, entrance hall and utility closets. Also, if you have bulky, little-used appliances sitting out on counters, consider putting them away in a cabinet to free up precious space.
Make a sacred space for your yoga mat for slowing down to care for your physical and mental health.
