I hope that you had an amazing week so far! I have had quite a busy week with coaching clients, TV interviews and finishing up my 6th book (The Glambitious Guide To Greatness). Since my birthday is just 2 weeks away, I consider the new book a birthday gift to myself. Additional details forthcoming!
So, after 3 days of being super busy, (in a productive way) I decided to knock out some spring cleaning this morning. My closet was packed with old dresses, purses, and shoes that I had not worn in years. I packed them up and will be donating them to a local domestic violence shelter.
With that being said, I’d like to share my latest blog post; Spring Is In The Air, Spring Clean Your Life!
Spring is in the air! And what a perfect opportunity to do some spring cleaning for the mind, body, and soul to clear out what no longer serves us well. Letting go of the old, worn out or stale is a powerful action that creates new space for fresh, wonderful, new beginnings!
Begin spring cleaning by getting rid of all forms of clutter. When your space is in order, your thoughts will be in order, and your thinking will be clearer. This will allow space for positive energy to flow. It will also allow your environment a healthier and happier place to thrive.
Those things, people, or ideas that once served a useful purpose in our lives, but now are no longer useful, get rid of them! For example, if you look in your pantry, you are likely to find some items that expired a long time ago. These items are not safe to eat, and you will never use them, but for some reason, they remain on the shelf taking up valuable space. Look in your closet. There are probably clothes in there that you know you will never wear again. But, year after year, they remain in your closet taking up valuable space and leaving a cluttered mess. Don’t forget the people who we allow to take up valuable space. Get rid of them!
There is also mental clutter which clogs our brains with old ideas and memories that do not serve us well. If we don’t clear the clutter from our lives, we aren’t able to let new feelings, experiences, projects, visions, and relationships flow in. We often can become so focused on wanting to add so much more to our lives that we don’t realize that what we get rid of can have the most profound impact of all.
Cleanse your soul by praying and meditating every day, even if it is just for a few minutes. Sit quietly for a few moments. Learn to be still with yourself. As you do this focus on your breathing by breathing in positive thoughts and breathing out negative thoughts. Meditation has been shown to lower blood pressure and improves overall health. I truly believe that spending time daily in prayer and meditation is uplifting and cleansing the soul.
Here are a few other tips to spring clean your life:
- Let go of what’s draining you
- Get rid of energy zappers
- Detox your toxic relationships
Now is a perfect time to do spring cleaning by letting go of the past and releasing old habits and holds we have in our lives. By doing this, we are allowing for new things to flow in its place.
