Ways to Beat the Stuck-at-home Blues

We all like to spend a bit of downtime at home – but at the moment, many of us are spending more time in the house than we would ordinarily choose to. To help with those stuck-at-home blues, we’ve come up with a list of ideas to improve your home and mental wellbeing at the same time.

Get rid of clutter

Clutter has a negative impact on our sense of wellbeing. It also makes our living space feel smaller and more cramped – something you don’t need when you’re indoors most of the time. So take the opportunity to get the house in order and tidy away any mess. (The right combination of storage furniture can make it easier to organise your belongings.) Not only will it keep you active for a few hours, but you’ll be rewarded with a more open and welcoming abode.

Clean

As with clutter, dirty surroundings can put us in a bad mood – but cleaning is even more important if you are concerned about your health. If you clean frequently and regularly, your house will be pristine and the chores won’t take as much time to complete. It’s also fantastic exercise and will help you to work off some excess energy.

Lighter furnishings

A trick of the mind – light colours and white walls open up rooms and make them feel bigger. It may be an illusion, but it’s a simple and effective way to keep your spirits up.

Open blinds and curtains

Keep blinds and curtains open where possible. This will brighten up the whole house, wake you up and provide a bit more Vitamin D. In addition, UV radiation kills germs, so this strategy will also keep your home more hygienic.

Style refresh

It’s no surprise if you’re getting sick of the same old surroundings. A style refresh allows you to look at your home with fresh eyes. A new colour scheme, fresh coat of paint, some houseplants or even just a new throw and scatters can create some much-needed interest. Not to mention, it’s a chance to get stuck into a new project.
