5-Minute Tasks To Do Before Heading Out The House
Practice these must-dos and come home to a much nicer space
For most people, the home is their happy place—a safe space to run to after a long and grueling day outside. However, how can your humble abode serve as a refuge of relaxation if you leave it topsy-turvy every morning before you leave? To help you turn your home into an after-work oasis, here are a few must-dos you can work on:
1. Make your bed.
Once you get out of bed, make it a habit to fix it. It doesn’t have to be perfect, just make sure that the blanket is neatly folded, pillows are fluffed and the quilt on top is tucked.
2. Wash the dishes.
There’s nothing worse than coming home to unfinished chores. Practice the habit of cleaning the dishes you used for beakfast so you can be greeted at the end of the day by a sparkling sink—besides, people rarely eat greasy food in the morning so there won’t be a lot of scrubbing involved.
3. Wipe down the countertops.
Food and water spills aren’t any better than unwashed dishes either. Don’t forget to give your countertops a quick wipe down before rushing out the door—it’ll save you the trouble of dealing with stains later, too.
4. Dump your dirty clothes in the hamper.
After taking your morning shower, throw the clothes you just wore (and anything you can find lying around in the bathroom!) into the hamper. You don’t want to be welcomed by clutter into your primping space, right?
5. Lay out a reward.
Whether it’s your favorite snack or an episode of your favorite show, reward yourself with a treat for surviving the day. A few other options include lighting a scented candle, curling up in a cozy throw or sipping a glass of wine.
