Tips to Keeping Your New Year’s Resolutions

January 20th, 2016

It’s a new year, and even if you haven’t committed to a New Year’s Resolution up until this point, it’s never too late to make a change. As a society, we generally associate New Year’s Resolutions with signing up for gym memberships and going on a diet. In reality, though, a new resolution could be as simple as stretching for 5 minutes every morning to release tension. It could be to write down 3 things you’re grateful for at the end of each day. Ultimately, making a resolution for yourself is making a promise to work towards a healthier and happier you, body and mind.

A few tips to get you started on keeping that New Year’s Resolution going strong are:

  • Less drama, keep it real: Don’t chalk out a resolution that is not doable. Don’t refrain yourself from eating your favorite dish again to keep the pounds from adding on. It will not work; depraving yourself will only make it seem like an ordeal. Be realistic with yourself.
  • Chart it out: Don’t make a plan that is momentary; think long term. A resolution is not something made on December 31st, it is rather a decision that is the fruit of a chain of events. Decide on your plan of action to resist that last piece of cake. Mentally prepare a list of pros and cons of breaking your resolution.
  • Small victories: Treat yourself every time you reach a goal. Instead of looking at it as a punishment, think of it as a positive change in your eating pattern. When you eat clean, you feel good.
  • Maintain a journal: Writing it down makes it seem more real than thinking about it. Jot down your successes and road blocks. Also, it is easier to keep track of the progress you make.
  • Persevere: A habit is formed when you repeat an activity for a period of 21 days. Practice your self-obedience and perseverance.

Ultimately, if you fail the first time, keep at it until you succeed. Habits are a result of repetition, and repetition is a result of practice.

5 Unique Sofa Designs for Apartments

January 2nd, 2016

A sofa is the primary piece of furniture that can either make or break the atmosphere you wish to set in your apartment. Sofas generally dominate the living room. A comfortable yet chic sofa will make your guest comfortable while drawing appreciation on your marvelous design sensibilities. Here are five unique sofa designs that can own any apartment.

  • Pixel sofa: Modern and stylish, the pixel sofa is the currently raging geometric design. A concept created by an art student from Royal College of Art, the contemporary furniture is a sure attention grabber.  The color spectrum is wide and it is a sure winner for anyone with an artistic eye. It is as appropriate for an apartment as it is for an office.
  • The metallic attraction: A bold metallic color will make any design appear stylish. A hint of silver, bronze or gold has become popular in making an apartment glamorous. If you are apprehensive of buying a sofa in metallic cushions, spice it up by adding large cushions in bronze or gold. You can mix up a silver cushion with a leather sofa as well.
  • Accordion sofa: Made of paper or wood, this sofa is coolest furniture you will find. You can mold it in any way you want it and it will retain the same shape without letting you down. Have something new to show every time you have guests over.
  • Feeling seating system: Brain child of Animi Causa, this sofa is unique in design and shape. The structure is pieced together by molecular objects to depict the only shape of all objects in the universe: circular. The sofa is made of 120 soft balls that can take up any shape.
  • The rug sofa: A clichéd east meets west design, who would want a rug when you have a sofa that looks like one? It is a great looking piece of furniture although the comfort it offers is questionable.

5 Ways to Make Your Apartment Cleaning More Eco-Friendly

August 6th, 2015

Cleaning is something that has to be done, but it doesn’t need to have a harmful effect on the environment. Here’s 5 ways you can turn the cleaning routine at your The Crossingapartment eco-friendly.

  • Try to clean on a cool day. Turn the AC off and open up windows so the apartment can air out while cleaning supplies are being used.
  • Avoid antibacterial cleaners. According to Tree Hugger, soap and water actually work better and are more eco-friendly than antibacterial cleaners.
  • Stay away from cleaning the air with store-bought air fresheners. You can freshen the air naturally by boiling cinnamon or cloves.
  • More so than ever there’s green cleaning products at mass merchandise stores. Try to buy the ones that are non-toxic, and made from renewable resources.
  • Don’t pour toxic cleaners down the drain. They could end up back in your water supply. Try and find an event or place that takes toxic chemicals and properly disposes of them for the community.

If you’re looking for a place to live where you can put these tips to good use, we have luxury eco-friendly apartments for rent in Anaheim. Please contact us for more information about our The Crossing Apartments.

Start slowly

  • Firstly, do not toss the pets together or leave them alone for the first few weeks. You have to introduce the pets to each other slowly and gradually. The first interaction must be short -only a few seconds.

Isolate the new pet

  • The newbie pet is approaching the current pet’s territory and therefore isolate the newest addition to the apartment. Give the the oldest a chance to smell then new pet and interact under supervision a few times a day.

Safe Zone

  • Each animal must have a place that is considered a safe zone to retreat to then they feel threatened or uncomfortable. Each area must have a bed or crate that the animal can use.

Walking time

  • Just like people, dogs adjust easier to introduction in a social environment. Walking the dog creates a neutral ground and now both animal can take a sniff to check each other out.
