5 Minutes A Day New Year Resolutions For Your Home

Every new year brings new year resolutions: some plan to start a new habit, lose weight, drink less, quit smoking, or leave toxic people, but only a few of you set new year resolutions for your home. Yes, you heard me! We spend a good portion of our time in our homes, and it must be a place of peace, love, and clarity. 

Putting aside personal goals and resolutions, there is still plenty of time to accomplish those goals. Try focusing on your home this year instead. 

Who knows, you might become a better person in the process. Or perhaps changing your home may also help you find solutions to your problems. 

New Year, New You, New Home, that's all we're aiming for this year! Therefore, we have compiled a list of 5 new year resolutions you should make for your home. 

It literally takes only 5 minutes a day to follow and implement them. They are easy to follow and simple to stick to. Let's begin! 


Do A Declutter. 

This term is so common that it's almost cliche. Never mind! This is a word you should get comfortable with if you plan on making progress with your new year resolutions for home. Get rid of everything you don't need. 

There's a famous Marie Kondo reference to getting rid of anything that doesn't "Spark Joy." Apparently, you can't take this reference too literally, since pots and pans for cooking aren't exactly enjoyable. Mothers with kids and their clutter might understand, but some things are needed even if they don't necessarily "Spark Joy." 


Start Small

We recommend you throw out those knickknacks you haven't used in a couple of years. Donate or sell them. Sort through cabinets filled with random items, organize drawers full of wires and, odd items you do not know how they ended up in there! 

Create clarity in your home from the inside out, so you know what you have, what you don't, and what you need!

Changing a lot in one day is challenging, of course. Start small and focus on one task at a time. Even if you devote just 5 minutes a day to your home organization, your progress will take shape right away, and you will achieve your goal much faster than if you never attempted it at all. 



To make the task feel more enjoyable, burn a scented candle like the Ritual Wild Fig Scented Candle, use a Zara home cotton light reed diffuser or an essential oil diffuser with the oils you like to create a pleasant working environment. 


Keep Pretty Things In Sight. 

We have balanced Marie Kondo's advice so that instead of getting rid of items that don't spark joy, you only keep those items in sight that do! It could be a cute mug you own, an adorable rug you’ve recently bought, or just anything that makes you stop and smile.


By seeing a sight full of nice things, you'll be more likely to wake up feeling energetic, less stressed, and eager to start the new year on a positive note. Consider our recently launched chunky ball handled mugs, which come in the prettiest colors ever.

Ask Important Questions.

For instance, you're renovating a part of your home: bathroom, bedroom, kitchen, etc. 

  1. Do you really need to? 
  2. What about the budget?
  3. Have you set one? 
  4. Why are you doing it in the first place? 
  5. Would it help you in the long run? 

Before you make those big plans for your home, ask yourself some of these questions. Whatever they are, it does not really matter. What matters is whether they are financially convenient for you. Will they make as much of a difference as you hope?

Think about it.

Consult someone more experienced with home renovations than you.



Be Wary Of Trends.

Following trends when they are 'in' can be empowering, but not when they become outdated. We know! So what's a better way? Go evergreen! 

Simple home decor never goes out of style, whether it's minimalist decor, clean walls, wooden furniture, or unfussy staples that define ordinary homes, because basics in any form will always be in fashion. 

You can, of course, be creative with a few decorative accessories: pillows, lamps, ornaments, etc. Choosing large items and important accents for your space, such as a sofa, table, bed, paint, requires a little more care. Your home can benefit from this New Year's resolution because it invites the biggest change, but take the time to think it through!


Improve Air Quality. 

This should be said more often. The effects of air pollution on your skin, hair, and health can be just as bad outside as inside, according to a recent study. Which is why blocking indoor air pollution should be a top priority. 

Mold, humidity, smoke, living near traffic intersections, gas leaks, etc. These are all forms of air pollution in your home. 



In order to improve air quality, a clean and hygienic home environment is the first step in eliminating dust, humidity, and animal dander. Clean your heating system and change the air filters to prevent poor air from recirculating.

Secondly, add greenery. Plants contain compounds that not only make it easier for you to breathe, but they also improve the air quality. Green is always supreme, so adopt a plant-loving and caring attitude this year: it will change your life for the better. 

If you are unsure where to start and what is causing the indoor allergens, invest in an air purifier. Especially if you have a pet, an air purifier, especially an ionic one, will help remove some of these irritants.

Allergens and pollution can dry out your skin and hair, clog pores, cause acne flare-ups, and even make your skin look fatigued. Also, In winter, the air is particularly bad.  

Plus, closed windows and dreary indoors don't help either, so letting fresh air and sunlight in from time to time is a good idea. Fresh air removes not only the stuffy odor but also possible airborne contaminants. Drawing the curtains back and opening the windows literally takes only 5 minutes, so make it a habit.  

Remember: one task at a time!
