With the start of a New Year comes the opportunity to make changes in your life. Whether you want to learn how to become an indoor gardener, or Spend time thinking about what changes you could make to enhance your apartment rental. Lead a happier and healthier lifestyle with a little help from our suggested New Year apartment resolutions.
Yoga is a powerful stress reliever for all your worries associated with work and your personal life. This exercise has a positive impact on both the mind and body. Even if you don’t have a fitness center in your community, simply purchase a yoga mat and the living room floor can become your very own yoga studio. No matter the size of your apartment, big or small, yoga can help give you the necessary stress relief to be happy and healthy in 2016.
Cook More & Eat Out Less
Take advantage of the kitchen in your apartment by cooking rather than going out to eat. Not only is it a healthier and more affordable, eating home allows you to unwind after a long day. Remember that a new year signifies that you should try things you have never done before… like indoor grilling. Order take-out less and become your very own personal chef.
Invite Your Friends & Family Over
Your apartment, being a significant investment, is a space you should make memories in…instead of going to your parents or friend’s house, why not invite them over for a Sunday dinner or social gathering? Create your very own memories in your apartment this year.
Being a hospitable host will give you more gratitude than you might think. This will not only bring you happiness, but will create a better work-life balance by incorporating more time spent with your loved ones.
Take More Pride…
A clean apartment is a happy apartment. The days of leaving clothes everywhere, never washing dishes, or eating chocolate on the couch should be long gone. Making simple organizational changes like putting dirty clothes in the hamper or washing the dishes once a day may seem a bit trivial but they can have a big impact.
You may not realize it, but when people enter your apartment they are seeing a reflection of you. Do you want people to think you’re sloppy and disorganized? If not, take more pride in the appearance of your place.
Become Better Acquainted with your Neighbors
There are other people living in your apartment complex besides you – take some time to get to know your neighbors. We are all consumed and busy with daily life but it is important to get to know the people that live the closest. Don’t think of these people as strangers, but allies you have not yet met.
Opening yourself up to new people this year will be therapeutic and might cause you to see things in a different way. If you live alone, these neighbors and future friends may give you a sense of security, knowing that someone can help you in a time of need. Don’t be anti-social and put yourself out there more in 2016.
