Could you imagine what the products would look like in your life if it did not have the packaging around it, diverting your attention from the contents?
Here is my daughter's suggestion:
Idea for a downshifting challenge of the week: unbrand. Take labels off your branded goods (as long as you can still tell what they are!) and put things into containers (especially cereal) instead of using the boxes they come in. Does it change your perception? I tried this in my bathroom, with make-up and in the kitchen. It makes things much calmer not to have all the advertising all the time. Plus, some of the bottles and colours of the products in them are really pretty once the label's taken off.
Give your eyes a rest and discard the wrapping.....surprisingly it is what is in the box that matters.
