5. Bedrooms - all the bedrooms should be cleanly painted again in light colors, no hot pink walls in that pre-teen girls bedroom with pictures of her teen idol on the walls. All toys should be packed away in boxes neatly stored in the closet and the closets clean and organized. Matching bed covers and curtains look beautiful and the room should not be cluttered at all.
Actually, there is help. It's called a serenity room, and these rooms are becoming very popular, especially now that the number of empty nesters is on the rise, and boomers have the house more or less to ourselves, at least until the 'boomerrangers' arrive. Here's the idea:
Once you have your serenity room, you'll need to establish rituals for its use. This shouldn't be another 'should' in your life, but a soothing habit, kind of like settling into the easy chair after work with your slippers, the newspaper, and a glass of Gewurtztraminer. In other words, another ritual that reinforces the way you escape from the demands of your day, only a bit different, and a bit novel. Be the first in your neighborhood.
