We're at the end of Week Five! We hope you took this week to try out some healthy habits at home, like cooking regularly and taking some time off from media to relax. If it's been hard for you to readjust to new practices, use the Sunday schedule on page 167 of the Cure book as a guide this weekend. We love following a similar schedule on Sundays: shopping for groceries, doing a quick clean-up throughout the apartment, cooking Sunday dinner, going out for a walk (it's actually nice outside now here in Chicago), and going to bed with a book. Good links and more pics below.
Weekend Checklist (Deep Treatment):
• Finish cleaning office area and related closets.
• Finish decluttering files.
• Tackle the cord octopus.
• Look into wireless technology (optional).
• Vacuum, dust, and mop.
• Choose one soft or hard thing to add or subtract.
• Try a one-day media fast.
• Buy fresh flowers.
• If you haven't eaten most meals at home, do so this weekend.
• Wrap up repairs this weekend.
Weekend Checklist (One-Room Workout):
• Order from your shopping list.
• Try paint samples in the room.
• Finalize paint choices.
Next Week we work on the bathroom and we look into light therapy. Since February was bathroom month on AT, we've already seen a lot of well-organized bathrooms, but if you've still got work to do you'll be focusing on decluttering and upgrading a few things. One-room workout folks are looking into lighting arrangements. Although often overlooked, lighting has as much impact on a room as furnishings or color.
