How to Put the Joy Back Into Life and Your Derby Home

In this Fast Thursday 90-second read we share eight things you can do to add a bit more joy into your life and your home. 

The past three months have been a challenging period for all of us.

With soaring levels of anxiety, uncertainty, and loneliness, it feels as if a lot of joy has been sucked out of our lives.

The good news is there are some simple things we can do to put a fresh spring into our steps and improve the way our homes feel.

Try these ideas.

For you:

Get a good night’s sleep – see the bedroom tip below.

Ditch the tech – switch off your devices for a day and feel the difference it makes.

Drink more water – being dehydrated can negatively affect your mood.

Give back to your community – studies have shown volunteering increases feel-good endorphins.

For your home:

Do some spring cleaning – you’ll feel better for it.

Create an ‘around the home’ to-do list – research has shown that ticking off tasks makes us happier.

Organise your bedroom – A clutter-free space leads to better sleep.

Make your bed – An easy way to bring daily order to your life (unless you have teenagers!).

As with many things in life, it’s often the little things which make the biggest difference.

At AKS, we’re confident happier times are on the way, and we remain here to help our community and clients.

Thanks for reading.
