Create new cleaning rituals

Did you know it takes only about 30 days to create a new habit or break an old one – but only if you have a positive view at the time? A new beginning in a beautiful home is the best time to create new rituals and to maintain your happiness. Here are a few tips:

Morning Lark? 5 minutes tidy session!
Depending on how much time you have in the morning, spending five minutes cleaning will make a huge difference. Just make the bed, wipe down the shower, empty the dishwasher and put a few things away to start your day with a win.

Night Owl? 5 minutes cleaning before bed!
Even if the night isn‘t the perfect work time, there are still a few night time cleaning routines that will set you up for a better day. Loading the dishwasher or doing the dishes in the evening will have a huge effect on your mood when entering a clean kitchen in the morning. You could even dust a bit: This a quiet chore you can accomplish without waking others.

Turn it into a workout – and reward yourself!
