Someday 1 - 7, 2011
This week we are in Zone 4: The Master Bedroom
This month's Habit is: Swish and Swipe
Zone 4: Mission #1 MondayDear Friends:
Your mission for today is to grab a trash bag, set the timer and start tossing anything that is trash. Just toss toss toss. Sometimes we have hidden trash in our bedrooms, things that are disguising themselves as necessary items but really they are trash. Toss those magazines, the junk mail that has been tossed in a pile, the old perfumes that are never worn but still have a place on your dresser, the old clothes that are on the chair that need to be donated or tossed but are still there, empty tissue boxes etc. Toss toss toss!Look around your bedroom and ask yourself if there is anything laying around that you would consider trash if it was in a hotel room. Your bedroom should be your very favorite retreat!
Zone 4: Mission #2 TuesdayDear Friends:
Still working on the theme of our bedrooms being a retreat, we are going to focus on the "stuff" that is hanging around in our bedroom that need to be put away but we just have not gotten around to. Set your timer for 15 minutes and go to it. Hang up the clothes, put the laundry basket of clothes away, take the coffee mug on the nightstand to the kitchen and turn around and come right back, don't get sidetracked. Better yet, have an empty laundry basket and toss in the things that do not belong in your room and then take the basket around the house and deliver the items. Put things away and get the things that don't belong out of there.Look around your bedroom and ask yourself if there is anything laying around that you would consider out of place if it was in a hotel room. Your bedroom should be your very favorite retreat!
Zone 4: Mission #3 WednesdayDear Friends:
We are back in the master bedroom and now we are going after the dusties! Let's grab those feather dusters or dust rags and dust the bedroom furniture. This means to pick up anything that is on these surfaces and dust underneath of them, also to dust the lamps and the decorative items as well.Look around your bedroom and see if you missed any dust, if you were paying for a hotel room on vacation would you want to pay for a room with dust?
Zone 4: Mission #4 ThursdayDear Friends:
Your mission for today is to get your bed ready for a good night's rest. Put clean sheets on your bed, fluff the pillows, and take your time making it up. Make it fresh and pretty for yourself. Get the bed dressed the way you would love to fall into it to spend some time just laying there and enjoying your vacation getaway!
Zone 4: Mission #5 FridayDear Friends:
Today you are to grab your favorite pj's and settle into bed at least an half an hour earlier than usual with a candle and a great book or magazine and enjoy your beautiful, clean, fresh bedroom. Just take time out to enjoy the treat that you have taken the time out to give to your self.
