Spring is finally here. The grass is getting greener, the days longer and brighter and the weather is getting warmer. This change in season is the perfect time to reawaken and rejuvenate from a long winter of hibernating indoors. This is a perfect time to bring back freshness into every aspect of your life. So let’s spring it on to a better way of living by clearing away all the clutter that no longer serves you and cleaning house from the inside out.
Below is a list of suggestions to get you back on track to living with a clean, cleared slate.
1. Make a To-Do List
A to-do-list is a list of tasks that need to be carried out. Making a list and following through with it will keep you organized and allow you to feel less anxious. Each time you begin to scratch away one more thing off your list, you will feel more organized, less stressed and you will bring more calmness into your state of being. That feeling of being overwhelmed begins to dissipate and dissolve away.
An accumulation of clutter or chaos in the home can increase stress levels and may create a feeling of overwhelm in our daily routine and life. Tackling your to-do-list in small baby steps can lead to calmness and peace once again. We become stressed with an environment that is cluttered and in disarray. House clutter is a visible manifestation of procrastination. Being disorganized in the home is a daily reminder of disorganization and it can continue to eat away at us. So unleash all the accumulated clutter in your home. Open your windows. Let the fresh air come in. Raid the closets of unwanted items and donate them to a local charity. Putting your home space in order will put your life back in order.
3. Eat Clean, Be Clean
Now that you began to rid the home of unwanted clutter, start to focus your attention on the philosophy, you are what you eat. Set and begin your day with the mantra “eat clean, be clean.” Fuel your body with great food options. You are what you eat so why not fuel your body with natural goodness? Drink plenty of water with a twist of lemon. Eat fresh fruits and tons of veggies more often. Enjoy a smoothie filled with homegrown goodness. Juice it up daily with a glass filled with exploding vitamins. Enjoy the natural ways of eating, and make it a lifestyle change to a better way of feeling and a better way of being.
4. Get Yogafied!
Use springtime to detox your body and your life through yoga. Yup, that four letter word “yoga” is one of the best ways to rid the body of toxins. Yoga helps to calm your mind to clarity, it builds a fit vehicle for your soul and it melts away every hint of tension, which lies deep within your core. So get to a yoga class, breathe in the life force, get blissed out and twist and bend yourself back into a place of feeling good once again. Being physically active not only makes you look and feel good, it helps reduce stress levels so you can take on the rest of your day in a calm manner. Feeling good on the inside will make you glow on the outside.
De-cluttering your life from the inside out will create more room to breathe, to enjoy and to live a life filled with happiness: physically, mentally and spiritually. Clearing away the past of unwanted clutter in and out will present a future filled with clarity of mind, body and soul.
