7 Ways to Spring Clean your Life

2015/03/25

Cleaning your house while your kids are still growing is like shoveling the walk before it stops snowing.  —Phyllis Diller

 

  1. Actually, physically clean and organize your home. It seems easy – so why don’t you do it? The first way to change your mental attitude or have a fresh perspective on life is to have a clean and organized space you call home.
  2. De-clutter your mind. Take stock of all the things you’ve been worrying about and all the things that you need to get done and write them down. Then flush them out of your mind – go for a walk or a trip and get a fresh slate to begin re-writing your priorities. Start with the things that you love and want to spend more time doing, finish with the things you worry about. Re-organizing things mentally will ensure you have time for the things you enjoy doing before the things you dread.
  3. Organize your relationships. Just like cleaning out your closet – there is no reason for holding on to something you never use or wear – the same goes for people in your life. If you have friends or family members that you wish you had more time to talk to – make the time. Otherwise sever ties with those people who are anchors to your life and tie yourself to those who are balloons.
  4. Change up your routine. Add something new to the mix or clear the board and start fresh. Nothing says spring cleaning with throwing out all the junk and garbage that is cluttering up your life – start a new hobby or take up jogging, the possibilities are endless so don’t be afraid to take a shot.
  5. Learn to stop saying yes. The irony of this is that in order to take the advice we offer you’ll need to say yes – but after that; NO MORE SAYING YES. That is to things you truly don’t want to do – there is a difference between being reliable and being a doormat. People will take advantage of those who are always going to say yes.
  6. Give your body a tune-up. Every spring you clean the car and get out on the road with a fresh clean running engine – apply that same principal to your body. After all – as far as this life is concerned – it’s the only one you’re going to get. Go for a run or do a detox – bathing suit season is upon us!
  7. Try a new look or shake up your normal grooming routine. Nothing says spring like fresh starts and this is the perfect time to try that bold new haircut or trendy outfit you’ve been eyeing all winter. A fresh new look helps to revitalize not only your appearance, but it puts a little pep in your step and boosts confidence as well.
