Spring has sprung. Or at least it has just begun to. Sprucing up your home can do amazing things for your well-being! It's really invigorating to declutter and show yourself that you're worth investing time in.
After all, spring cleaning is also a form of self-care and self-love. Getting rid of a lot of old things such as clothes and beauty products will help to declutter your home however, cleansing yourself of self-deprecating thoughts will make you feel liberated from within. You don't necessarily need to wait until spring to create a peaceful space for yourself, but it sure is a darn good excuse to. In this post, we'll explore why we absolutely LOVE spring cleaning.
A Fresh Start
Spring cleaning has long been a tradition that symbolizes new beginnings. Winter is finally coming to an end, making a way for a blossoming new season. During this time of year, we like to think of Spring cleaning as an excellent opportunity to make a second "resolution" to the one we made on New Year's Eve.
There is just something so refreshing about the change of seasons. With warmer weather on the horizon in many places, it also means we'll be changing our wardrobes soon as well. Along with that comes more chances to get outside and work on physical fitness. Pulling out the bikes again or taking that afternoon walk to clear our minds.
The Joy of Decluttering
Taking the time to go through your belongings, sorting, and deciding what is most important to you can be a therapeutic experience. Work on small areas first, then progress to larger ones like closets or storage areas. Now, don't go throwing out everything. Organizing and storing items just means creating a system that is efficient and organized.
Decluttering also isn't just about re-organizing our tangible items, we also like to declutter our thoughts as well. Exploring new books and hobbies that bring us joy always helps us to refocus our thoughts and explore a new purpose. The following tips will also help you refocus and regroup your mind for a new season of growth:
Take a break: Step away from whatever is distracting you and take a short break. A few minutes of fresh air or a cup of tea can help you clear your head and refocus.
Exercise: Exercise can help improve concentration and refocus your energy. Even if it's just a few minutes of stretching or a quick walk, it can help you clear your mind and get back on track.
Change your environment: A change of scenery can help you refocus. Try moving to a different room, or work outside if the weather is nice.
Set goals: Having goals in mind can help you stay motivated and focused. Identify small, achievable goals and reward yourself when you reach them.
