Starting the New Year right
2020 was a year that none of us expected, and although difficult, it taught us many lessons to bring forward with us into a new year.
Instead of creating ‘new year resolutions’, we’ve recommended creating some small, realistic goals to help you in 2021.
Loving your home
With more time spent at home in 2020 and a continuation of this into 2021, it’s important to have a home you love.
Feeling more at home doesn’t need to be expensive – small tasks such as some re-organisation can make all the difference. We spoke to the North East’s version of Marie Kondo for her tips on creating a home you love, including starting with a vision and then working in categories.
Many of us are still working from home and it’s important to have a place you enjoy working in. Having lots of light in the room can help increase concentration and happiness, as can the addition of plants. Parkhill Garden Centre has a range of plants and products that can be purchased through their click and collect service.
If you’re looking to set some goals, why not aim to get ahead of the spring clean and re-organise your home by the start of the next season?
For many, more time at home has meant that they realised the need for more living, office or garden space. If you’re considering a move, Grandhome’s housebuilders have a range of property types available, perfectly located with plenty of parks and green space to enjoy, while being an accessible distance from amenities. Visit AJC, CALA and Dandara to find out more.
If your plan is to move home this year, why not set a goal to work on your interiors while at home? Pinterest is a great source of interiors inspiration and a good place to keep all your ideas together. Take a look at out our blog where we spoke to CALA’s interior designer, Eileen Kesson, to find out about the top interiors trends and where she gets her inspiration from.
Enjoying the outdoors
Fresh air and the outdoors is vital for our physical and mental health, no more so than now. Start your New Year right by committing to getting outdoors every day, whether it’s for a walk, cycle or run.
There are many scenic areas to enjoy within a cycling distance of Grandhome, including Scotstown Moor and Donmouth Nature Reserve. If you have children, why not follow the Grandhome Scavenger Hunt to mix up your daily walk?
Do you have New Year goals that would help other people in the community? We’d love to hear them! Share them with us on the Grandhome Facebook page.
