What does it mean to clean happy? Some people think keeping a home shiny and fresh without cluttering the air with chemicals is enough (thanks, Method!). But why not whistle while you work? Doing away with dirt doesn’t have to be an act of drudgery. All it takes is a little creativity to turn sweeping and scouring into something cheery.
Life is never stagnant, so why would you be? It’s time to change it up, bring something new and fresh into your life. Breaking out of your routine breathes new life into you. The neuro-pathways of your brain will be stimulated in new and different ways, creating a rejuvenation of sorts. You’ll see life through a different lens, with renewed vigor and increased positive feelings toward yourself and others.
Taking a trip with your main squeeze is one of the best ways to spark some romance in your otherwise monotonous routine. Whether it’s a one-night retreat a mile from home or a month long trans-continental escapade, make the most of your time away and pack a little passion in your suitcase.
You can’t always get the logistics of a night out to line up in your favor. But that doesn’t mean you can’t recreate the same enchanting feeling of a table for two in a dimly lit room from the comfort of your own home. Spread the holiday table cloth over the dining room table and break out the good China (or just, you know, something not made of paper). A pair of nice taper candles and a little mood music will go a long way towards transforming the atmosphere.
You know the old adage, “the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach”? It’s true, but there’s no need to stop there. Vamp up your style and be a feast for his eyes while preparing a feast for his plate. Protect your little black dress with a funky-cute retro apron while cooking. If you’re feeling daring – and not particularly concerned about getting to the food portion of dinner - wear heels, the apron and nothing else. You’re sure to enjoy yourself at the dinner table…and on the kitchen floor and against the wall…but, I digress.
