Spring Cleaning

Every year as soon as the winter weather breaks, I'm ready to throw the windows open and feel the fresh air flow through my house. It's that time when I do what we term Spring Cleaning. You air out the house, change the filters, wash windows, and hopefully spend some time de-cluttering your home of things that you don't use or can't use anymore.

Wouldn't it be amazing if we did that mentally for ourselves? What would your life look like if you did some Spring Cleaning in your personal or professional life?

It's actually more necessary than you think. Holding on to unhealthy habits, relationships, etc can physically and mentally weigh you down. Look at it like cleaning out your closet. First you have to agree to even open the closet door and do the cleaning. Then you have to pick a section to start with. Doing this helps us to feel less overwhelmed by the entire task. After we pick a section, we have to sort through the things that we need to keep and the things that need to get thrown away or given away. Sometimes we have emotional attachments to things that we need to get rid of and we think twice about getting rid of them. But there is no need to keep those pants that don't fit anymore just because you looked cute in them 3 years ago at a concert with your husband.

When we Spring Clean, we have to be willing to let go of those things that have emotional holds over us. We also must be willing to focus on moving forward. Once we de-clutter, we make room for the things or people that deserve to be in our space. Take that time to reset goals that are attainable and that reflect your passions.

Be willing to get rid of those things or people that are causing chaos, anxiety, or negativity in your space. Take the time to reflect on where you have been and where you would like to go.

Today's challenge: De-clutter your mental space. Figure out what things are necessary in your life and which things are unecessarily taking up space. Set at least 3 goals for yourself and revisit your progress in 3 months.
