Keeping Habits from the Spring Cure

The Cure is tough, but keeping the habits we’ve adopted during the Spring Cure can be even tougher. We’ve got two weeks of Curing left, and it’s understandable that we’ll slide back a little after eight weeks of hard work, but there are a few habits we think it’s important to keep

• Cooking at home really improves your quality of life. You’ll eat better, learn new skills, and save money if you continue to make as many meals as possible. For daily inspiration, check The Kitchn.

• Stick to a cleaning schedule to stay organized and cut down your overall work. By cleaning just a little bit on a daily basis, you’ll be able to enjoy your home rather than worry about it, and you won’t feel overwhelmed when last-minute guests stop by.

• Buying fresh flowers brings new life and color into your home. In summer, it’s even easier to stick to the weekly flower rule. Pick them up at the farmer’s market when you’re shopping for groceries on Sunday.

• The most important habit we learned from the Cure was smart shopping. Don’t bring anything into your home that you don’t absolutely love and/or need. If you’re ruthless about this rule, you’ll see your home’s clutter drop dramatically.
