Keep your phone out of the bedroom.
If you’re like 71% of Americans, you probably tuck your smart phone in bed with you. But if you resist and leave it outside of the bedroom, you’ll have an easier time falling asleep, wake up feeling more rested, and more.
Everyone’s guilty of leaving a stack of clean clothes out, then pulling from it throughout the week. But all this does is create clutter where it’s not needed, which is why we want to break this bad habit once and for all.
Even though this might feel excessive, it’s actually one of the germiest spots in your kitchen. So to ensure your cup of jo isn’t contaminated in the morning, wash removable parts after every use and wipe down spills on the outside as needed.
It’s so easy to say “I’ll do it tomorrow,” but what this really means is you get stuck doing dishes before you can even start cooking dinner the following night. Give yourself a break and rinse up the night before. Your growling stomach with thank you.
The good news: You don’t have to replace this cleaning tool when it gets germy — but you do have to clean it more often than you might realize. If you make zapping it in the microwave a habit this year, you can rest assured that your dishes are as clean as can be.
