Well, it’s that time of year again… it’s the new year and we are set to be encouraged – even bombarded – with suggestions of how we can change our lives by committing to a fresh set of new year’s resolutions. The thing is- that it can all get a bit too daunting, and we tend to buckle under the pressure of trying to make all these dramatic changes to our lives. Doing things that we should have done years ago are classic examples. We may start off with a list and come the end of February, we are so frustrated about not being able to accomplish it all, that we tear up the list!
That’s the problem – many people make unrealistic, overly-ambitious, pie-in-the-sky new year’s resolutions. So – instead – let’s focus on attainable and incremental goals that will help you live more comfortably with our win/win new year’s resolutions for your kitchen.
Resolutions for the kitchen:
The key to making your kitchen the space you want it to be is to get organized. And the first step towards getting organized is to remove the clutter. Moreover, decluttering is therapeutic. You will feel so much better after you have done it. Most kitchens are full of old pots and pans. The fridge and cupboards are likely to contain scarily out-of-date canned goods, condiments and spices.
Studies show that if your kitchen, is organized, you are more likely to eat healthily, get more done, and feel better about yourself, in general.
Although this blog is about new year’s resolutions for the kitchen, making the kitchen work better for you will make it easier for you to make one for yourself – to eat more healthily. It’s often said that cleaner, leaner and more organized kitchen spaces are far more conducive to healthy eating.
For example, if your kitchen is clutter-free and organized, there will definitely be a space for food prepping.
And, as part of your new year’s resolutions for your kitchen, why not plan some new meals for all the family? It’s easy just to stick to the tried and trusted recipes, but in your new reinvented kitchen space, the cook of the house is reinvigorated too. Now the kitchen is a stress-free zone, and you will more likely feel free to try new things and to be creative.
Keep the kitchen cleaner
One thing is certainly true: it’s easy to make a mess in the kitchen. But here’s another truth – it’s even easier not to tidy up properly. This part of your new year’s resolutions for your kitchen is going to take a degree of self-discipline. But another thing is definitely true as well – you are less likely to keep an untidy, cluttered and chaotic kitchen clean than a tidy and organized, renewed space. Cleaning-as-you-cook is a good way to keep on top of things and it just makes good sense. After all, leaving all the mess to build up and then being faced with a mountain of a clean-up can be very daunting. You do need to motivate yourself with this one – but it is well worth it. You want to be able to show off your organized, beautifully updated and clutter-free kitchen every day.
