The Eight-Week Home Cure – The End of Week 7

Posted by Rebecca

Did you get some sleep this week?  Sleep was not my friend this week, but that’s another story.

Week Seven:

Clean the bedroom and related storage.  I was a slacker this week….  😦  Actually I was out-of-town for most of the week, and then had an unexpected guest over the weekend.  So this chore is on my to-do list.

Buy an air filter for your bedroom.  I found several smallish air filters on Amazon this week, many priced below $100.  My new infrared heater comes equipped with an air filter, and my vacuum cleaner has an anti-allergen air filter, but I think I would still like to get a small one that I can place close to the head of my bed.

Buy new sheets, pad, or mattress as needed.  I do not need any of these items.  I currently have as many sheets as I have room to store, and my mattress is about 5 years old and still going strong.

Declutter your bedroom.  My bedroom is so small, I don’t have the room to store anything in sight, and I have no electronics in my room.  I’m an anti-TV-in-the-bedroom girl as it is.

Arrange the bed against the best wall.  Unfortunately I only have one option for the bed location in my bedroom.  Fortunately it is a good location and my feet face both the outside door and the hall.

Make sure your bedroom inspires you.  All of my bedroom lights are already on a dimmer, and I have added “pretty alarm clock” to my shopping list.  And when I get my mini room makeover that I have planned, I feel my bedroom will be very inspiring, relaxing, and lovely.

Look into ways to improve your sleep.  My bedroom is dark at night, and I sleep with a fan to drown outside noise.  I have also purchased a homeopathic sleep aid, but have not tried it yet.  I plan to start tonight.  I have on-going sleep issues, but don’t like taking anything prescription.  Melatonin on its own does not work for me, so I’m looking elsewhere.  We’ll see….

  1. Would the lack of sleep have anything to do with those puppies???? Cute!
    I do love the Eight-Week home cure, but first I have to box things up before I even begin. My ol’ double wide has soooo many issues, and first on the list will be this gross carpet!!!!!!!!
