We either make them, read them or disregard them altogether. But that doesn’t change the truth: we live in a society of lists.
From the magical, addictive Buzzfeed and Huffpost listicles (have you seen the one about things you need to do for yourself?) to the likes of the five best places to run in Chicago, it’s tough to avoid the constant onslaught of lists.
The art of crafting the perfect to-do list is in a league of its own, with dozens of apps and tools and, yes, even old school paper planners, to choose from to keep track of everything.
Love it or hate it. Ultimately, lists are unavoidable. But like anything in life, it’s how you approach them that matters. Here’s how we approach them at Scio at the Medical District, where we turn tasks into privileges:
To-Do: Find Decor That Compliments Designer Flooring
Open space floor plans with designer flooring are accompanied by stainless steel appliances, quartz countertops, and Leedo cabinetry, for the ultimate luxury look. Other features include new, modern lighting and window treatments, an oversized vanity, and designer fixtures.
To-Do: Use Old Gym Commute Time as New Extra Workout Time
The reasons vary for everyone, but the numbers don’t lie. Studies show that 60 percent of American adults don’t get the recommended amount of physical activity, 25 percent of whom are simply inactive completely.
There is no excuse for residents of Scio, where it’s hard to resist the spin and yoga studio and multiple types of equipment available in the state-of-the-art fitness center.
Not that it necessarily counts as exercise, but there are some pretty inviting pool and ping pong tables to boot.
To-Do: Claim Your Favorite Spot to Relax or Study
The resort-style pool offers plenty of space to soak up the sun or catch up with friends. But once summer ends, there are places inside that offer similar relaxation opportunities.
The lounge space features the most beautiful ping pong table you’ve ever seen, multiple flat screen TVs and free fiber-optic wifi.
Elsewhere in the resident lounge, are some irresistible chairs and pillows perfect for curling up with a book or getting some studying done.
To-Do: Enjoy Smart Access to Restaurants and Shopping
Conveniently located in the chic community between UIC and the Illinois Medical District, Scio’s location can’t be beat. Residents can hang out on Taylor Street or take a quick trip downtown on the Blue or Pink Line.
There are dining options and local shops galore and landmarks like art galleries, memorials and the United Center are all within less than 1.5 miles away.
Because ultimately that’s what luxury living is about: redefining tasks into something you enjoy doing. Taking that to-do list and making it something to look forward to. In a world filled with lists, it’s up to you what you do with them.
The time is now to change your perspective.
