Top New Year’s resolutions for 2023

Did you know that organizing and decluttering your home can help you accomplish your New Year’s goals? It’s true! There’s not much else we can do in gloomy, rainy January in Vancouver, so why not?

Here are the top 8 New Year’s Resolutions for 2023 (according to a Statista study). Keep reading to learn how cleaning, organizing, and decluttering your home this month can help you meet or kick-start these common New Year’s resolutions: 

Exercise more

Walking around your home decluttering and organizing can be a good, low-impact workout. Carrying boxes and belongings from one room to another can help you get a heart-pumping workout (especially if you jog or skip up the stairs rather than walking). 

Eat healthier

Use this month to clean your fridge, freezer and cupboards. It can help you eliminate any unhealthy stacks hidden in the corners and allow you to bring healthier food within reach. Grab some organizing bins and baskets and put quick healthy snack options where you’re more likely to see them. This is one great way to minimize unhealthy snacking. 

Lose weight

We can’t promise that organizing and decluttering will help you lose weight, but it’s not going to hurt either. If you’re trying to increase your activity level to support achieving a healthier weight loss, consider adding small exercises throughout your day as you organize and clean. Every little bit helps you develop healthier habits. 

Save money

Decluttering and organizing your home helps you save money because you know how many ketchup bottles you have and won’t buy more until they’re almost gone. You could also earn extra money by looking for items around your home that you no longer need and selling them online or in a garage sale. 

Spend more time with family and friends

Have you ever been embarrassed by your home? Helping your home stay tidy will help you love it more and want to invite friends over for dinner or visits. When your formal dining room table is no longer a storage corner, you can use it for a family board game night. 

Spend less time on social media

Most of us mindlessly scroll our social feeds when we’re bored. When you have a tidy home with room for non-smartphone hobbies, you create the physical space to do more. For example, organizing your spare room allows you to make crafts or sew. Cleaning the clutter from your lazy boy recliner will provide a comfy place to read a book.

Reduce job stress

Your job is likely stressful enough without worrying about the mess and disorganization you’ll come home to at night. A well-organized home means you have more time in the evenings for personal hobbies and relaxing away the stresses from your day. 

(If you’ve been asked to coordinate an office move, Your Moving Concierge can help take the burden of organization and planning the move so that you can focus on other things.)

Reduce living expenses

A cleaner home costs less to maintain. Regular cleaning of heating systems, ventilation systems, and even your washer and dryer vents can reduce electricity bills. It’s one small part to help reduce your day-to-day living expenses.

Another top resolution: Asking for help

For some, asking for help can be stressful, but it can be the lifesaver you’ve been looking for. In 2023, ask for help to declutter your home, organize your belongings, or even coordinate your next move.
