Invite them in. We say this time and time again. Invite them into your home, your world, your life. When we invite loved ones in, we do life together. We support each other. We embrace each other. Inviting them in is how we reconnect in a world that is more disconnected than ever and live fulfilled lives with deeper relationships. But, do we invite them in?
If inviting them in is a key part of living a connected, fulfilled life, what stops us from opening up our doors? What makes us hesitate to send the text or make the phone call to friends and family? What gives us pause before we say, “Hey, come on over!” to loved ones? If you’re like us, a messy home is often the culprit. What will they think if I don’t get a chance to clean my house? Then the insecurities settle in, and the text is never sent or the call is never made. Having a messy home is often what makes us not invite them in. Let’s change that!
While we believe that it’s completely fine to invite people in even if there’s a mess in your home, we also understand that having an uncluttered, organized home can clear and calm the mind as well. A clear and calm mind is most apt to be open for deeper connections, which is always our end goal. With that, we’re sharing with you our favorite cleaning hacks and products so that, while cleaning might not be fun, it doesn’t have to be a sore spot either. Read on to clean your home with ease — and then invite them in!
