Sensational Spring has Sprung



Ah, the sweet arrival of spring, where the warmth seems to have settled in for a while (fingers crossed). Springtime brings with it the age-old tradition of spring cleaning, a mix of dread and excitement for many. It's the perfect time to declutter, sweep away the cobwebs, and start anew. But hey, why stop at just cleaning your physical space? Let's dive into some mental spring cleaning as well. Let's declutter not just our homes but our minds too.


Psychology Today suggests that a clean living space can boost your mood, reduce stress, and even spark creativity. So, roll up your sleeves and get ready to tackle the mess. But where to start? How about creating a strategic plan that suits your unique brain? Are you a burst of energy kind of person or more of a slow and steady cleaner? Find what works for you and dive in. And let's not forget the age-old story of having attachment to decluttering our belongings. A great solution for this is to gather whatever you haven't used for a year, thank them for their service, and ask yourself, "Does this spark joy?" If not, bid it farewell and make room for the new.


Now, onto the mind. Let's clear out the self-criticism and negative thoughts that clutter our brains. Catch those pesky thoughts, reframe them, and watch your mindset shift. A fantastic technique for this is to think about a memory that doesn't serve you and rescript it in a way that is your preference. Keep doing this daily, until you truly believe it. And hey, reconnect with your values while you're at it. What are you passionate about? What brings you joy? Reflect on these questions and let them guide your actions. And here is another reminder of one of my favs, Bashar's Formula, to enable you to live your life to the fullest.


Maintaining these new mental habits can be tricky, but fear not, there are tools to help. Whether it's sticking notes on your mirror or using a habit-tracking app (This is a helpful blog by Elizabeth Perry for habit-tracking apps). In short, find what works for you and keep that mental space squeaky clean.


So, let's embrace the spirit of spring cleaning, both in our homes and in our minds. It's time to declutter, refresh, and start anew. Happy cleaning, both your beautiful body and marvellous mind!
