4 EASY WAYS TO KEEP A CLEAN AND CLUTTER FREE HOME

We know that our environments reflect our inner state, and so chaos in the home is not an option if you want to live a calmer, healthier and meaningful life. But you don’t need to spend all your free time cleaning and tidying. Here are 4 easy ways to keep a clean and clutter-free home.

1.Remove dust regularly.

The dust in your home can harbor a stew of toxic chemicals, so it’s best to remove it frequently. Dry dusting can kick up the dust particles into the air you breathe, so use a wet mop on uncarpeted floor, microfiber or moist towels on furniture, and your vacuum cleaner instead. This will help to absorb and remove the dust with minimal agitation.

2.Put things away as you use them.

It’s so much easier to pick things up as you go rather than wait and have to undertake a huge cleaning session all at once. Sometimes this is easier said than done, but it’s something to strive for nonetheless. The key to making this work, of course, is to ensure that everything has its own place. Do that first if you haven’t already.

Examples:

  • Put toiletries & makeup away in its spot every morning after getting ready. Don’t leave the hairdryer laying on the counter!
  • Throw dirty clothes in the hamper, not on the floor or on a chair.
  • Hang coats on hooks at the entryway or on hangers in the closet.
  • Put kitchen appliances back in their spot after using.
  • Put mail in a folder just for it.
  • Take your laptop back to the desk when done using it elsewhere in the house.
  • Fold blankets and throws back up and put them in their spot when done snuggling up on the couch.
  • Put wet towels on a hook to dry and reuse – have a hook for everyone in the house.
  • Put magazines and books back on shelves or in baskets when done.
  • Put tools or junk back in the junk drawer or garage when done.

3.Get more plants.

Houseplants offer immense benefit to us, mind, body, and soul! They remove toxins from air and lower the amount of dust that accumulates, release oxygen and humidify the air, and even lower stress. They also improve our moods, reduce pain and discomfort, and can apparently make us more productive and smarter by improving attention span. Beyond that, they remind us of nature, which creates a sense of equanimity and balance, and they make our homes look welcoming, fresh, and clean.

4.Wash the dishes every night, and put them away every morning. 

Whether you hand wash and leave dishes to drip dry like me or use the dishwasher, get in the habit of cleaning all dishes in the evening and putting them away in the morning.  Waking up to clean dishes and coming home to a neat and clean kitchen after the workday will help you to relax and inspired to keep up more healthy habits. Turn this chore into a meaningful habit by combining it with music.

5.Wipe down your counters and table after each meal. 

The simple act of wiping down your counters and table (with an all-natural disinfecting spray) will get you in the habit of keeping those surfaces clear of clutter and clean of dirt. Surfaces should be free and clear to prep and prepare and eat on – just doing this one thing will help you feel tidier and lighter all around.
