So Christmas is done and you know what that means –

you’ll have to face your New Year's Resolutions.

Because come January 1st, you will be held responsible, and not following through on your new goals is one of the worst feelings there is. Instead of trying to tackle something borderline impossible or create a new habit that you simply can’t keep, be sure to start small. When you start a new year, so many people think New Year's resolutions are only for the body or goals for the year. They should & can include for things around the home to help balance life.

What’s more, an excellent way to actually follow through is to combine your personal goals with your living environment. That way, you can rejuvenate your home and stick to your resolutions at the same time. Here are the five easy-to-keep New Year’s resolutions for your home.

5 Easy-to-keep New Year's resolutions for Your Home

Be bold with your colors 

No matter if you always wanted to make your living room look luxe or if you wanted to transform the kids’ room into something truly inspiring and creative, the best way too quickly spruce up your interior is to upgrade the color scheme.

There are two ways you can achieve this: a neutral foundation with colorful accents, or vice versa. If you’re feeling pretty festive and want to liven up your living environment, then why not repaint the wall in an interesting color scheme, something bold and vibrant that will get you up in the morning? On the other hand, you can always put a new coat of neutral colors on the walls and then decorate with colorful artwork and accents to get a similar effect.

Create a personal corner 

New Year's resolutions - Relax

As a parent, you understand the value of peace and quiet better than anyone. While you might have forgotten what personal space or “alone time” feels like over the months and years since your bundles of joy were born, it’s not too late to rekindle the flame with your inner self. All you need to do is to set up some ground rules and claim a piece of the household for yourself.

No matter if it’s the nook by the window, a single chair in the living room, or a whole room, this place should be yours and yours alone. Decorate it to your liking and surround yourself with your prized possessions – this is your domain, let no one inside.

A place to build a healthier you 

There is no arguing the importance of personal health and fitness in the modern world, especially for a parent battling the hectic nature of the modern lifestyle. Yet, exercising regularly is oftentimes one of those resolutions that always manages to slip through your fingers.

Instead of waiting to abandon your fitness goals somewhere mid-January, bring the gym over to your house instead. One of the best things you can do for yourself is to get some versatile exercise equipment and put it in your nook, your bedroom, or even the basement where you can exercise freely. Simply remind yourself to get a sweat session in every morning and you will elevate your quality of life and instill a lifelong habit in no-time.

Tend to regular decluttering 

New Year's resolutions - Declutter

Keeping a household spotless at all times might seem like wishful thinking, but as any experienced parent will tell you, it’s doable if you tend to some thorough organizing, some delegating, and remain persistent. A clean home is essential for a healthy family, so come January 1st, you should start decluttering and cleaning on a daily basis.

You shouldn’t do this alone, of course, you’re not a maid, but rather you should employ your family members to clean up after themselves and help preserve a clutter-free household. Each family member can clean one room once a week (the bathroom twice a week), and you will have created a spotless living environment in no time.

Raise the green flag 

Lastly, one of the most rewarding resolutions is to improve your home’s energy efficiency. Not only is it good for the environment, but it’s also good for your family’s budget, and it will help you instill positive values in your developing children. Opt for energy-efficient appliances, switch to LED lighting, and enforce recycling and reusing policies in your household and you’re off to a good start!

New Year's resolutions - Clean Room

When thinking about improving your energy efficiency, it may be beneficial to think about the power company you’re using. By speaking to a number of different providers, you will be able to find one that puts sustainability at the forefront of what they do. 

People have a love-hate relationship with New Year’s resolutions, and even though many are destined to abandon theirs, that doesn’t mean that you should follow in their footsteps. Instead of making it just about you, though, why not get the whole family involved and make the entire family a part of the process?
