Now is the perfect time to make a few small, easy and inexpensive upgrades to your routines at home.
We get so familiar with the way things are and the way we carry out our routines, we almost forget they could (and should) improve over time.
It's something you'll notice, use and appreciate daily, so it's worth the small amount of time and energy.
Also, if you're ever going through something or having a down day, a house or re-styling project can be a perfect outlet for doing something with the energy.
This is a daily or multiple times a day task for the devices we use constantly. Unless you live in a high-end home that has usb outlets in the wall and hidden charging stations inside drawers and that pop out of countertops, you have to use wall chargers and wireless chargers.
2. SOAP DISPENSERS
3. ADD ART TO THE BATHROOM
4. CHANGE UP THE NIGHTSTAND DECOR
It's time. Swap out the pieces on the surface and clean out the inside. Most people will never see the inside, except you, but something about a good nightstand clean just feels so good. As you look to add items back to the surface, ask yourself what you really need and will use to support your nighttime routine. Whenever I have the opportunity to do something like a luxury boutique hotel, I do. The bedside carafe seems so fancy, but if you're like me and sleep with water by your bed every night, it's really a functional piece that you use and interact with every day.
5. MAKE ROOM FOR VITAMINS & SUPPLEMENTS
Vitamins and supplements are one of those things we don't really know where to store. Do they belong in the kitchen or in the bathroom? On the counter or in a drawer? The answer is somewhere that's easily accessible that syncs up with your morning and evening routines. The first step is to take them all out, sort, combine duplicate bottles and toss out of date bottles. I find clear plastic bins that can be labeled by person or type of usage to be the best solution for storage utility, like these.
