The new year is a time for goal setting and reimagining what your future can look like. These goals can range from putting dirty clothes in the hamper right away to purchasing a new home; there’s no range or limit to how grand you can plan. The best way to encourage yourself along the way of accomplishing these goals is by making a list of them and keeping it in a visible place. Include details about how and why this goal will benefit you so that you stay motivated on your journey to accomplishing these tasks.
We’ll help you out with your list-making by giving you an example of our list:
1. Pick the right temperature
The ideal thermostat setting during summer is 78 degrees, while the ideal setting during winter is 68 degrees. These temperature settings will keep your home comfortable while also saving you money on heating and cooling bills, which normally account for 50% of your utility expenses.
2. Save water
Saving water in your home will not only benefit the environment, but it will also save you a great deal of money. There are several ways you can incorporate this practice into your daily life.
Remember to do the following:
- Turn the faucet off while washing your face or brushing your teeth.
- While you wait for the shower water to get hot, use that water to fill a bucket and water your plants with it or wash your car.
- Only water your grass 2 to 3 times a week, and do it during the early morning or in the evening.
3. Replace air filters consistently
Setting a reminder in your phone or on a calendar to replace your air filters will keep you accountable for maintaining your indoor air quality. Better indoor air means easier breathing and lower risks of sickness for you and your loved ones.
