How To Create A Happy Home

When you consider what your home represents on an emotional level, there are a lot of feelings of peace, security, safety, belonging, and feeling settled… yet, with such busy lives we can often let our physical home environment spiral out of control. This article offers a practical four-step process to create a happy home environment for you and your family.

1. DE-CLUTTER
There’s a popular saying that goes something like “tidy house tidy mind” which means the same could hold true for the opposite - in that a cluttered house could lead to cluttered mind - in fact, there have been a number of sociological and psychological studies that link the two. If you are always searching through clutter to find your car keys, or frantically searching through draws prior to going on holiday in a desperate attempt to find your passport - then you could certainly benefit from this advice. It leads onto the next phase of ‘getting organized’, but decluttering your home is necessary to get organized. How can you get organized when there is clutter everywhere?

2. GET ORGANIZED
Most people need some form of order in their life in order to feel calm, centered, grounded and balanced. This sense of emotional stability is closely linked to the feeling of stability and order you feel within your home life. Now that you’ve decluttered your home, you need to get organized, which sounds like a drag but the time investment will pay off as it will make your life a lot easier in the long run.  Have a place for everything, keys, bills, toys, shoes, etc.  Only by having a place where things belong can you organize your home and keep it organized.

3. GET RID OF JUNK
Yes, this sounds a lot like removing the clutter from your house or removing it from your yard.  This can take a large amount of time and effort if you do it yourself. However, there is another option, and that is hiring people willing to clear out your junk for you. Although junk removal prices vary hugely based on the area in which you live, there’s a good possibility you will be able to hire someone to remove the junk for you. This option can save you a lot of time, effort, and hassle. The alternative, you could hire a van or truck for a day or two and use this to cart rubbish to a local refuse site.

4. CLEANSE
The act of cleaning your home isn’t a purely physical experience; it has clear practical benefits but there are significant emotional benefits to cleaning too. It can be cathartic to go through your home and clean every corner of it, whether that includes pulling cobwebs down from the ceiling, vacuuming each room, or deep cleaning the mildew that has grown around the bathtub. The process of cleaning your physical home gives you an opportunity to cleanse the energy and emotion stored within your home, and can be a very soothing experience.

In summary, the four steps are to declutter… then get organized... get rid of the junk… and then cleanse your home. It’s a time consuming, and energy draining, process - but one that is well worth the investment!

Are Big Dogs A Bigger Responsibility?

Image Source Dogs come in all shapes and sizes. When opting to own a bigger breed, there are clearly going to be some differences in owning a Chihuahua. However, how big are these differences? Is the responsibility far greater with a humungous hound? Or are there some bonuses to having a big bow-wow-ing beast? Diet Big dogs do require a different diet then small dogs, not just in terms of portion size but nutrients too. They often need a greater amount of protein, especially as a pup when they are growing. This higher protein food costs more, and given that you’ll be serving up higher portions, you’ll go through a lot more dog food with a big breed than you would with a small breed. There are also other factors to consider. Big dogs are often more likely to contract allergies to certain foods. This can sometimes mean buying hypoallergenic dog food , which is unsurprisingly more expensive. It’s also recommended using a raised dog bowl once a big dog reaches adulthood.
