Imagine the house guest you want to impress the most. Then, tidy each room in your home for them. Take a few minutes when you leave your bedroom, living room, or kitchen.  Make sure everything is tidy enough that your pickiest house guest would like it. Cluttered spaces bring you down. When the space around you is tidy, neat, and ordered, you’ll feel relaxed and boost your mood.

2. Finish the dishes

Sometimes the last thing you want to do after preparing, cooking, and enjoying a meal is the cleanup! Just tidy up the kitchen and you’ll thank yourself later. Use scented dish soap, buy cute dish gloves and towels, and make it a fun part of your day rather than a chore!

3. Take a nap

Treat yourself like a toddler. Make sure you get in a nap if you need one. A little 20-minute rest feels like a luxurious treat and it can refresh you more than you know. Fill your bed with cushions and grab a cozy blanket to make your bed the ultimate nap spot.

4. Get some natural light

Nothing beats the warmth and brightness of the sun on your face! Try to get some natural light in your home to enjoy its mood-boosting benefits. Grab a book and take a moment to yourself to drink in the sun’s goodness.

5. Take a spa day

You can get happy in your home today by taking a spa day! Clean the bathroom and draw yourself a bath. Put on your favourite music or a podcast and take the time to relax. Candles and a glass of wine are optional. Arianna Huffington takes a bath at the end of every day to help her wash away stress. If it’s good enough for the successful co-founder of The Huffington Post, it’s good enough for us!

6. Get outside! Sort of…

Spending some time in nature will instantly boost your mood. At home, that means making use of your outdoor spaces to bring in the freshness of the outdoors. We love this room that puts the gorgeous patio view front and centre!

7. Brighten up your senses
