Did you know that a well-organised, clean and functional kitchen can benefit your health?
Scientists have proven that Kitchen design can improve your mood and your physical health, so here are 5 ways to get your kitchen mojo back
1. Develop healthier kitchen habits
When you eat homemade meals, you are less likely to eat processed foods.
The unfortunate truth is that the “easier”, quickly prepared, packaged foods (typically found in the middle aisles of the grocery store) are the foods that cause us to gain weight. The same goes for take-out, and especially fast food.
Eating out may be convenient, but the costs can definitely add up to big expenses.
While many of us feel the schedules of our busy lives bearing down on us at the thought of cooking a meal every evening, there are ways to simplify the food prep process so you can achieve this health-benefitting goal for you, and for the ones you love.
2. Clear out the clutter
Physically and mentally, clutter is no good.
It doesn’t take a scientist to tell you that walking into a cluttered kitchen – not to mention working in one – elevates stress levels; you can feel that all by yourself.
If you’re planning a kitchen remodel, let us help you think about how you use your kitchen to better organise storage areas.
In the meantime, clear out every cupboard and get rid of everything you haven’t used in more than a year (especially Tupperware-without-lids and vice versa).
3. Rethink your kitchen functionality
When you first started using your kitchen, you stored everything in a way that made sense to you in that moment.
Then, you got used to it and proceeded to organise your kitchen movements around where you naturally store things.
Re-think your kitchen layout and function, appliance/countertop placements, and where go-to items are located. Does it make sense with the way you use (or want to use) your kitchen? Could things be arranged better?
This one isn’t on our official list, but it is worthwhile including it as a bonus.
Consider replacing outdated appliances with energy efficient options, add water-conserving adaptors to existing faucets and trade regular light bulbs for LED options.
The cumulative effect of rethinking your kitchen will have positive ripple effects for your household and family.
