After a long winter, we cannot wait for that first warm, sunny day that signals the change of seasons. We open the windows, swap out all of the linens, deep clean everything, and generally follow the traditional steps for a great seasonal reset.
Hitting the reset button doesn’t have to stop with your closet and pantry, though. Approaching this spring cleaning framework can flow into other aspects of your life, leaving you feeling refreshed, rejuvenated, and ready for the season ahead.
Here are a few ways you can spread spring cleaning energy throughout other parts of your life:
Taking care of our bodies is incredibly important. After all, it’s the vessel that carries us and allows us to experience life fully. Helping it run its best will significantly impact how we interact with ourselves, others, and the world. So really zero in on what is lacking. Maybe you need to focus on eating more whole foods.
Perhaps you need to up your vitamins, minerals, and supplements. Maybe hitting the gym has happened less and less lately, and you need to work on a new routine. If it feels overwhelming to do a total overhaul, start with one new habit and build. But taking care of your physical being will never be something you regret spending time and energy on.
Since it’s not something we can see, mental health often takes a backseat to (quite literally) everything else. But going into a new season, it’s imperative to leave behind what doesn’t serve us. One practice you can implement to help with this is journaling.
It’s amazing what you’ll uncover — you’ll start to see a pattern in your beliefs, and you’ll notice what is taking center stage in your thoughts and know what to tackle first. This is also a great time to consider what helps you mentally feel refreshed and rested. Make a list of these restful things so that you can add them to your schedule each week.
No matter what fills your spiritual cup, it never hurts to find new ways to put emphasis on this aspect of life. When we make time to be present and connect with something bigger than ourselves, it begins to put life in perspective. Moving through life with this lens can change how we react to and learn from the things we experience.
This is our time to dive into what we know or try new things. It can be a visit to your local place of worship or a walk in the park where you speak gratitude and affirmations over yourself. If you’ve felt disconnected, it’s time to reconnect.
When we began to implement these hacks, we realized that we felt like we were stepping into a new season with a fresh start. It isn’t without doing the work, but the work often makes it that much sweeter.
So here’s to new behaviors and attitudes and walking through our next season of life feeling a bit lighter.
