What sort of aesthetic do you have going on in your home? Is it the kind of thing you would describe as “streamlined,” or is it a bit more haphazard, clunky, and cluttered?

The idea of a streamlined home aesthetic tends to go hand-in-hand with things like a minimalist ethos, and with modern design trends — such as the famous Scandinavian noir looks that have become increasingly popular.

Ultimately, going for a more streamlined aesthetic in your home can yield some pretty significant benefits that may not necessarily be immediately apparent upfront, including more energy and motivation to direct to hobby projects.

Here are just a few of the benefits of going for a more streamlined aesthetic in your home life.

Things are often easier to manage when they’re more streamlined and minimalist

One of the big reasons why Mac computers and Apple products, in general, are so well regarded, is the fact that they feature a very streamlined, minimalist, and visually appealing interface — which means that they are relatively easy to navigate and maintain.

You can look up the original article on CleanMyMac, on freeing up Mac disk space — but suffice to say the same simplicity-related benefits that come from using a Mac also apply to having a more streamlined aesthetic in your home, in general.

When your home is tidy and well organised, with everything where it should be, and without over-cluttering, it will just generally be a lot easier to stay on top of chores, deal with various tasks, find things you’ve been looking for, and so on.

A streamlined aesthetic can help to promote feelings of calm and balance

Do you find that you tend to feel more in control, calm and balanced when you are in environments that are well maintained and that have a clear and visually pleasing design aesthetic to them?

If you do, it’s worth keeping in mind that this is a totally normal response — as the nature of the environments we find ourselves in will always have a lot to do with how we feel on a day-to-day basis.

Emphasising a more streamlined home aesthetic is likely to help you to feel your best at any given time.

A streamlined aesthetic can help to promote momentum and activity

Maybe you’d like to lead a more active and outgoing life in general? To take up different hobbies and projects, sign up for various classes, and to lead a proactive and adventurous life in general?

If so, the overall aesthetic that you nurture in your home can have a big impact on the degree of momentum that you experience on a regular basis.

If your home is streamlined and organised, it’s quite likely that you’ll find yourself more motivated to jump up and get moving moment by moment, as opposed to feeling lethargic and unmotivated, and spending your free time glued to your sofa or your bed.

Aiming to keep clutter on the low side can be very helpful here in and of itself, but a streamlined aesthetic — specifically — can have significant additional benefits.

Always know there’s help

The workplace environment may not be a place you feel comfortable talking to people, especially if you do not know them as well as your friends and family. But, always know that there is someone you can talk to. For example, if you have had an incident then you can talk to your boss, a colleague, or a federal criminal defense lawyer. If you were the victim of the incident, it needs reporting. If you were involved, the latter option may be the best choice.

Be communicative

In workplaces where there is a fear-based regime, there are secrets. Parenting provides a great metaphor; it is easy to mistakenly think that a spanking will elicit a behavioral change. While it might appear to work in the short term, the long-term ramifications are far too costly. The same goes for the workplace. When everyone is walking on eggshells, employee concerns are buried deep under the surface. This increases the risk of a sudden argument or disagreement. 

Regular cleaning

Regular cleaning of any workspace is key to keeping hazards at a minimum. For instance, it is easy to suffer a slip accident in any workplace, from a warehouse to an office if there is something on the floor. Daily cleaning services will prevent or reduce the risk of incidents like this. 

Be aware of the risks

Regardless of where you work, you need to understand the potential risks and issues that you might encounter. If your workplace has particular hazards or dangers, then you need to make your staff and co-workers fully aware of what they are and how to avoid those problems. Once you’ve made everyone aware of the hazards, you can work more safely knowing that you and your staff understand the risks in your workplace. They don’t have to be obvious and immediate dangers either like power tools, it could be something specific such as a loose step on the stairs or a faulty power outlet. Make sure these are disabled if possible, or that warning signs are placed around them.

Understand the equipment

If you work in a hazardous workplace, you need to ensure you are using the appropriate safety equipment that is sold by websites like Storemasta and many more. Even if you know how to put the gear on, you might not fully understand how to use it when a situation occurs. Never slack with the process of putting on and maintaining your gear because it’s there for a reason. It’ll save your life and protect you from medical conditions and problems should you encounter them.

 

Why you should not set up a blog

I see many new blogs popping up this year. This is good and it is not surprising to see many people setting up blogs with the whole lockdown and spending more time indoors. Setting up this blog is one of the best things I have ever done for myself. It gave me a creative outlet and it became a good source of income, which gave me the courage to leave my boring customer service role.

There are so many reasons why you should set up a blog. I have been running Fashion and Style Police for over 8 years now and I can tell you how amazing it is to have my own creative space on the internet. It allows me to work and study from home while juggling the kids. But this post won’t be telling you why you should set up a blog, it will be helping you see why you should not set up a blog.

Here are some reasons why you should not even dream of having a blog –

You don’t like writing

If writing is not your thing, you should not set up a blog. If you stringing sentences together, maybe you should look into other creative outlets like Instagram or YouTube. Blogging means writing. You have to be able to write and you have to enjoy writing. If it feels like a chore, please do not set up a blog. You will fail. Going to different blogs and stealing content is not acceptable. I am sick and tired of reporting blogs for copyright theft. It is exhausting. Please respect copyright and write your own posts or don’t set up a blog.

You don’t have the time

Writing takes time. If real life is really busy and you don’t have the time to dedicate to really running your blog, it may not be a good idea to have one. Running a blog takes time and energy. You will need a few hours every week to update your blog. If you don’t have the time to do this, wait until you do.

You have nothing to write about

You may love writing and be good at it. The time to write may also be available but it is best to decide on what content you would like on your blog before you venture into blogging. It is usually easy for many new bloggers to decide on what they want their blog to be about but for some, it may not be as easy. If you can’t think of what to write, wait until you can before you set up a blog.

You are in it for the money

If you are setting up a blog just to make money, you may be in for a huge surprise. It takes time to grow your blog to the point where brands are interested in paying you to advertise their goods and services. If you are in it for just the money, you will give up after a few months. Blogging is not a get rich scheme at all.

Have a great week everyone 😘
