Whether your home has beautiful new kitchen cabinets or you are still adding to your “Dream Kitchens” Pinterest board, you probably have a lot to be thankful for. Here are five wonderful ways to fill your home with gratitude this holiday season and beyond.
Host a party.
‘Tis the season for entertaining, and there is no nicer way to show gratitude for your friends and neighbors than by inviting them into your home. From taking the time to make a delicious, home-cooked meal, to hosting a holiday open house or cocktail party, your guests will surely feel your warm welcome, and in turn, will be grateful for you as well.
Add family photos.
Whether it’s a collection of framed photos on the open shelves of your TV room cabinetry or a gallery wall in your home’s entryway, a home should have pictures of the people (and pets) you love most. Family photos add a personal touch to your space like nothing else can. They tell your story and keep cherished memories close to your heart.
Fill your home with a favorite fragrance.
Scents can instantly lift your spirits and make you nostalgic for treasured moments in your life. From your grandmother’s freshly baked apple pie and your mother’s favorite flowers, to the fresh Christmas tree in your childhood home, you can recapture those aromas with scented candles, reed diffusers, or the real thing.
Keep your home clean and well-organized.
According to Psychology Today, clutter can negatively affect your mood and your well-being. With that said, a clean home is a happier home, so take the time to stay on top of the mess. Consider adding space-saving accessories to your new kitchen cabinets for better organization, and install custom cabinetry for storage that cuts down on the clutter.
Write it down or share what you are thankful for.
Consider keeping a journal on your bedside table to write down what you are grateful for at the end of the day. It could be something big, like the roof over your head, or something small, like having lunch with your best friend or hearing a kind word from a stranger. If you have children, go around the dinner table and take turns sharing what you are thankful for as a family. There is no better way to fill your home with gratitude.
