Spring symbolizes new beginnings, time of re-birthing In this part of the world it has become a tradition to de-clutter; to get rid of that which is not needed any more. Houses are cleaned and remodeled bringing new light; a new sparkling face. Winter clothing is donated or stacked up in boxes. Even our eating habits change, going from earthy warm soups to fresh salads, fruits, and refreshing cold drinks. We change with the seasons. Spring is Mother Nature’s way to tell us, “get rid of the old and make room for the new and exciting in your life.” This applies also to our personal lives, something seldom omitted. So, how does a real spring cleaning should look like?
1. De-clutter your mind first. There are no new beginnings without a new mentality.
2. A change in attitude changes the way life will unfold. Check up the attitudes that have been denying you of the opportunity to succeed.
3. De-clutter your body. Get out and move. Enjoy what nature has to offer. Give your body the gift of sunny days and breezy mornings.
4. Eat healthy. Take advantage of your local farmers or better off, plant your own garden.
5. Nurture your spirit. Get in contact with those forces that guide you. Follow your intuition and pay attention to your inner voice.
6. Do something different, walk off the beaten path, explore, and discover.
Robin Williams once said: “Spring is nature’s way to say, Let’s Party.” Let’s honor her by taking care of us first giving back the best of what we have to offer. Happy spring cleaning from the inside out!
