1. Change the bedding

What's better than crawling into a clean bed in the evening where the linen is crisp and fresh? Nothing!

Changing your bed linen is a very simple task and the end result will be a treat. It will take less than 10 minutes too!

2. Empty your inbox

If you get stressed and overwhelmed, which distracts you from being productive, why not spend 10 minutes every morning addressing those unread emails that are overflowing in your inbox? Also unsubscribe from junk emails or daily newsletters that you don't need. 

This will save a lot of time in the future!

3. Create an emergency kit

Do you have an emergency kit? It's easier to put together than you think! In fact, you probably have everything that you need already in the house!

Do you have a big shopping bag or shoulder bag? Fill the bag with some bottles and granola bars. Add a candle and some matches to it or a flashlight and you'll be prepared for a power outage. Even a wad of cash could be a good idea!

You don't need to be prepared for the Apocalypse but it's good to be a little bit prepared. 

4. Wipe the windows clean

You know what will perk up any dark day? Clean windows!

Make sure that you make the most of even the tiniest sunbeam by wiping down the windows for just 10 minutes once a week.

5. Hang up the picture frames

Do you have framed pictures resting against the wall that need to be hung up? Do it now! It makes a huge difference to dusting and vacuuming and will make your home seem that much more modern and chic.

6. Create a special nook

There are some places in the house that could use some extra zing. Add an extra storage unit where books and art can be stored, adding a special and cozy touch to your interior design.

7. Remove dust and hairs

Do you have this problem? Your furniture is covered in hair from your pets, which means that every time you walk past the chair you get hair on your clothes!

Spend ten minutes cleaning the fabric of your furniture, giving them a make over with a roller or a rubber glove. It will make your home look much cleaner and more refreshing.

8. Wash your shower curtain

If the thought of mold in the shower keeps you awake at night, then make sure you regularly wash your shower curtain. This will ensure that your bathroom is pristine!

9. Clean all the screens in the house

A grimy computer screen can ruin the whole look and feel of a study or living area. It also means that you'll be squinting at your spreadsheets, photos or emails!

Give your computer screen, TV screen and even phone screen a regular clean for peace of mind!

10. Buy flowers

Even a cheap bunch of flowers can make your room feel refreshing and more beautiful. And we all deserve an occasional treat!
