We all know it’s easier to think when you’re in a clean environment. Marie Kondo says “tidy your space, transform your life”. Before you go out and change the world focus on changing what’s right in front of you. Keeping your home tidy and organized is good for your well-being and that’s the first step in making your own luck.
Before St. Patrick’s Day arrives and shamrocks start sprouting let’s get your home projects finished by putting Jonny On It. Our home service provider app can be your lucky charm through this process. There have been studies linking positive psychological benefits to tidy and kept homes so cultivate your luck this season. Here are some tips to keep in mind.
1. Clear Work Space
A clear workspace can make you feel lucky to have a spot that is yours in your home. Whether you always work from home or love craft projects, keeping it organized can help you be more creative. Take the time to put everything in its place. With a well organized clear desk or area you can visualize the next big step for your project or work.
2. Kitchen and living room
The kitchen and living room are the most frequented rooms in the house. To create efficient kitchen storage use drawer organizers, pot racks, rolling carts, and refrigerator bins. In the living room add a multifunction coffee table, storage baskets, decorative bins, or cubbies to keep things off the floor. You will feel lucky to live there when your guests are green with envy (<– see what we did there?) of your tidy home.
3. Outdoor living space
The weather should be taking a turn for the “beautiful” any day now and it’s time to get outside. Feel lucky with your own version of Zen outdoor living space. Organize your plants with a tidy vertical planter, that way they don’t take up too much space and will look “too cute” at the same time. If you do have an especially green thumb (<–did it again) organize your gardening equipment with stylish shelves so everything is right at your fingertips.
People are asleep for on average ⅓ of their lives so make your bedroom your sanctuary. It’s easy to throw your clothes on the floor or leave an empty water glass by the bed but keeping it free of clutter can help you sleep better. Use the space under your bed wisely, it is the best way to keep something “out of sight, out of mind.” If you have artwork hang it on the walls don’t lean it on your dresser or nightstand, keep those spaces clear. A comfortable bedroom can help you fall asleep easier and a more rested mind is a more productive mind. Productive minds make their own luck.
5. Laundry Room
Ah, the dreaded laundry room. It’s usually one of the smallest rooms in the house and can become overwhelming quickly. Keeping it organized and free of unnecessary clutter can help keep you sane. Try adding behind-the-door shelves to the space and store things like fabric softener or dryer sheets. If you are lucky enough to have a sink in your laundry room, utilize that space and add some under-sink shelves. These simple tricks are easy for any handyman to install and I know a great place to find one. Our app will put you in touch with the perfect handyman for the job in under 15 minutes.
