9 Tips to living a happier life in your mobile home
So let’s dig into our nine tips to living a happier life in your mobile home. Whoever you are and whatever it is you choose to do with your life, a happier life in your mobile home is only a hack away.
In the list below, there is a tip to be found for anyone to get started. Remember, small changes lead to big results over time. So what are you waiting for?
1 – Declutter the mobile home
First, on our list of tips is decluttering. This is a big tip for most households. And your own mobile home may be no exception. It’s time to go through your mobile home, room by room, and see what needs to go. You’ll want to discard items by sending them on their way to your local thrift store, the dump, or storage — that is if these items are things you don’t use often enough to keep on hand.
By decluttering your home, you’re reducing stress and anxiety in your life.
2 – Get a calendar for your fridge
You might be reading this tip and thinking “Really, a fridge calendar? How outdated!” Okay, so maybe a physical calendar isn’t the best idea for your family. But the idea is that a “household” calendar would be helpful to keep tabs on what’s going on — when and where and with whom. Otherwise, a busy family could feel a bit disconnected. It makes it easier for plans to occur if everyone’s on the same page.
There are some killer apps out there for household members to keep up with each other.
3 – Keep your meals simple
Here’s a big tip — keep your meals simple. In the day-to-day hustle and bustle of life, it’s important to keep a sanity check on your meal planning. Rather than an elaborate dinner, for the average day, it may be time to consider something a bit more simple yet still delicious.
4 – Formulate an exercise routine
And another contributor to less stress is exercise! Enjoy a happier life with a regular exercise routine. Regular exercise helps with better stress management and encourages a positive mental state of health. Set your home up with what you need to succeed in keeping up with an exercise routine — whether that’s equipment or a nice speaker system to keep you moving.
5 – Throw out the junk food, bring in clean eating
In that vein of thought, toss out the junk food and bring in some healthy clean eating. Your fridge shouldn’t be home to highly processed foods. Rather it should be a haven to greens and fresh fruits and veggies.
6 – Integrate a cleaning routine
Additionally, a cleaning routine is a must. This will help you effortlessly chip away at the grime and clutter that could accumulate. Keeping tabs on your home’s cleanliness will make you happier and more comfortable when it’s time to come home or have guests over.
7 – Keep some comforts nearby and well-stocked
Don’t forget to keep your comforts nearby! Keep a cozy blanket on the couch and a reading book around. Having your favorite wine or tea in the cabinet is also a smart idea.
8 – Set the mood with fairy lights
Here’s a fun idea — set the mood in your mobile home with fairy lights (or white Christmas lights.) They can make your home feel whimsical and inviting.
9 – Mitigate your time on technology
Finally, monitor and control the amount of time you spend on technology — whether that be apps on your smart phone, laptop, or TV. Spend more time connecting with people on a face-to-face basis. Read a book. Wind down with your special other, soaking in the stars.
Take control of your life, make the most of your living space
As you can see, the above nine tips can become the springboard for a happier life. A happier life is more about bringing in changes that contribute to a healthy mindset.
