Day 20: Relax and enjoy your home!

Whether you joined the Cure on Jan. 4 or just yesterday, you’ve done amazing work this month, inching towards a home that looks and feels better than before. So your final assignment is to enjoy it.

Even if you haven’t done everything, you’ve done something — and that’s enough.

If you want to keep the inspiration and community coming all year long, here are some ideas:

That’s it for the January Cure! I hope you have a safe and peaceful year. Feel free to say hi on Instagram if you need some help from here.
