Often, around this time of year, many of us will start Spring cleaning. We’ll do the chores around the house that we don’t often otherwise do. The real deep cleaning. This could be decluttering. It could be cleaning the shower curtains. It could be steaming the carpets. It could be cleaning the oven. Whatever it is, it’ll help to make your home look significantly better with just a few days’ worth of effort. This spring, however, is a little different to other springs we’ve experienced. Generally, around this time of year, many of us will be fitting our spring cleaning in around our work, our hectic social schedules and whatever else we’re trying to fit into our free time – training for marathons, getting ahead on deadlines, the list goes on and on. This spring, unfortunately, the world is facing a pandemic. Coronavirus and the threats it poses to our societies has caused countries to limit movement across borders and encourage citizens to stay in their own homes, only leaving for essentials. This means many of us have a lot more time on our hands. So, why not extend your spring clean and take it a few steps further? You have the free time, not a lot better to do and it can help to keep you occupied. Here are a few things you could consider doing!
Sprucing Up Your Bedroom
First, why not focus on your bedroom? This is a space where you’ll probably find yourself spending a lot of time at the moment. Whether that’s napping, lying back and reading that book you’ve been meaning to get around to forever, or anything else. Your bedroom should be a safe haven. It should be relaxing. It should be calm and peaceful. So, get rid of any junk, change your bedding, just make things nice in there.
