new years resolution ideas

While many people yearn for a home to own, 34% of US households are made in rented spaces such as apartments. This has been more and more the case in recent years- Americans are shifting more toward wanting to save money and pay off debt instead of purchasing real estate.

At New Year’s, making resolutions is a great idea. If you’re one of the many people who live in an apartment, there are a few resolutions you can make to ensure that your life at home is even better than it was last year.

Read on for some New Years resolution ideas that will get you feeling more relaxed and at home in your apartment.

1. Doing Weekly Cleaning

Cleaning’s boring at best and disgusting at worst, so it’s really no wonder that most households don’t sweep the floors or bleach the bathtub nearly as often as they should. If you do these chores regularly, though, your house will look much cleaner. This will make you feel more relaxed when in your apartment and ultimately make you a happier person.

2. Completing Small Chores Immediately

While a lot of tasks can be done on a weekly basis, there are some chores that you might as well do immediately. Cleaning your dishes right after eating will stop funky smells from materializing. Making your bed each morning will make your room look cleaner and more relaxed. Chores like these only take a couple of minutes and make all the difference!

3. Get That Renovation Done

Everyone has that vision for their home that they’ve thought about implement but just haven’t gotten around to. It’s the new year and the perfect time to try new things, so why not install that awesome couch? Fix the hole in the wall? You’ll feel great having accomplished something you’ve been wanting to for a while!

4. Being Kind to Roommates

Your roommates may be annoying, but they’re yours. You probably bother them sometimes, too. Make it a resolution in the new decade to do one small kind thing for them each day. It doesn’t need to be anything big- just putting their cup in the appropriate cupboard will do.

5. Taking Some Time for You

In order to fully enjoy your apartment, it’s essential that you take some time to be kind to yourself. This year, resolve to carve out specific time frames to do something relaxing. For example, hop into a hot bath with a calming bath bomb and a novel. You’ll live life to the fullest when you choose to do things like this!

More New Years Resolution Ideas

While everyone makes vows to change their behavior in the new year, only a few actually follow through. If you’re one of these people, though, you can change your life for the better by committing to doing so!
