It's easy to get bogged down by chores and yet-to-be-completed projects. If you're hankering for a Spring Cure (ours is coming up, exact dates TBA), consider these ten suggestions for improving the way you experience your home.
Going from blog to blog last week, I found an image from an old issue of Shambhala Sun magazine suggesting 10 ways to live more thoughtfully at home. While I am probably the zillionth person to extoll the benefits of yoga, one related practice in particular — mindfulness — is definitely worth its weight. Applied to your home, it means calm, non-judging awareness of the tasks and events of daily domestic life.
Many of the magazine's suggestions, such as making your bed and using a timer for cleaning, are Apartment Therapy standbys. My favorite tip is "Rake the leaves: Rake, weed, or sweep. You'll never finish for good, but you'll learn the point of pointlessness."
See the full list at Shambhala Sun.
