Springtime is here! Set yourself up for success with a mental spring cleaning
Each year around springtime, many of us start compiling a list of the things we need to do in order to reset our homes back to balance. You know – the way it was before we started bringing more stuff into our lives, both on a physical and mental level. New clothes, the latest technology – smartphones & TVs, household items and other things we determine as useless once we’ve grown tired of them. The process of accumulation happens pretty quickly throughout the course of a year and by December we’re loaded with things we need to get rid — both physically and mentally.
The official start of spring is punctuated when people start talking about spring cleaning – clearing out the things we no longer need to make room for the new stuff. This includes getting rid of old clothes, clearing leaves from the yard and planting flower beds, cleaning out the veggie garden, and trashing the worn down tools and old items from the garage. It reminds me of the start of the new year when people start clearing out old and useless habits to make way for creating better ones.
Springtime is also the perfect opportunity to start clearing out those old
After you remove the mental clutter, you can experience freedom of thought that may have been previously weighed down by tons of wasteful images, thoughts & ideas. Clean up your mental attitude and do so in the spirit of renewal. Just as each spring we renew the balance in our homes and within our surroundings we should also put effort into renewing our minds. In doing so we position ourselves for success. We open the door for a new perspective and energy that aligns with the start of a new beginning. So, when you officially start spring-cleaning this year, be sure to do a mental sweep, too.
