A fresh year means a fresh start, and it all starts at home. Take this opportunity to shake up your schedule, reinvigorate your rental space, and turn your NEMA Boston home into the center of the new you—through spring cleaning, digital detoxing, and finally getting round to those things that've been on your docket for decades.

Embrace the Magic of Tidying Up

We all wish we had a Mary Poppins in our life: one who could click her fingers and make the clutter go away. The next best thing is Marie Kondo and her book The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying. If your NEMA Boston apartment has become a little unkempt over the festive season, this bestselling book will teach you how to reorganize your apartment. It may just reorganize your life too: as one Marie Kondo acolyte said, "I quit my job and launched my own business doing something I had dreamed of doing ever since I was a child."

Revel in Screen-Free Time

We're all guilty of over-indulging in screen time, especially while streaming services and video games keep us going through these unprecedented times. But a digital detox has the power to transform your life for the better: make 2021 the year you became a master at one of these trending board games, devoured all the critically acclaimed books of last year, or learned to cook something new every day for a month in your chef's kitchen. And don't forget: your NEMA living room boasts captivating views of Boston from its floor-to-ceiling windows. Take part in an online yoga class or absorb a podcast while admiring the views.

Add Some Zen to Your Day

Little changes go a long way: invest in a few Zen touches around your apartment to feel calmer and more comfortable. Bring fresh fragrances into your home with Aesop's range of room sprays, diffusers, and essential oils. (While you're at it, stock up your NEMA bathroom with their parsley seed facial cleanser and geranium leaf rinse-free hand wash.) The Strategist, meanwhile, tells us that sleeping on silk "reduces irritation, wrinkles, and hair frizz"—why not treat the master bedroom to a set of fine silk pillowcases?

Plan 2021

Now that your home's tidy and heavenly scented—and you've taken some quality time away from the laptop—you can focus on your goals for 2021. Pour yourself a wine (or smoothie if you're detoxing), open up a crisp notebook, plant yourself in an armchair chair overlooking the Seaport views from your luxury NEMA Boston apartment, and jot down all your plans and goals for the new year. With all the above items ticked off your list, you're already well on your way.
