How to spring clean your life

How to spring clean your life

28 August 2023

There is something intoxicating about the air, something youthful; even Mother Nature is wearing her most beautiful dress! Oh, and birds … bring on the tunes!

Spring 2023 is finally here after a brutal winter and it’s time to take stock. Okay, so it may be the sunshine endorphins talking, but spring is the time of plans and projects. Bloggers, vloggers, Instagrammers and Netflix shows are all inspired by this age old cliché. The change of seasons is a natural moment rethink your life choices and to decide what needs to transform to bring you to a happier, more fulfilling place come summer.

Sure, of course, spring cleaning is about flipping the mattress and changing the pillows, but even more so, it’s about replenishing whatever makes you happy, healthy and whole. So if your to-do list is never-ending and your mind is constantly racing, it’s time to #SwingIntoSpring and hit the “refresh” button on your life. Yes “refresh” not “restart.”  And yeah, there is a huge difference. “Restart” is erasing what you have and starting over, while “refresh” is enhancing what you already have.

Here are a few ideas on how to push the “refresh” button in your life:

  • Open the windows and let the fresh air in.
  • Love and accept yourself unconditionally. Not when you are thinner, richer or less single. Now!
  • Commit to living wholeheartedly – give your all to every moment. That thing you always wanted to do, do it now! You will miss one hundred percent of the shots that you don’t take!
  • Change your style. Craving a different haircut? Do it now and brace yourself for the compliments.
  • Soak up and savour the simple pleasures – like your morning coffee, or the sun on your back.
  • Get a candle and light it tonight.
  • Clean the cracks. Do some cleaning to free up some creative space.
  • Accept the things that you cannot change and spend your energy on the things you can.
  • Celebrate the light in others.
  • Decide that authenticity is more important than conformity. Commit to living, working, eating, sleeping and loving, in ways that feel right to you.
  • Toss the baggage. Let go of guilt and anxiety. You’re smart, talented and fabulous.
  • Apologize to someone. Clear the air and start fresh.
  • Let go of something. Feel free and liberated to let go of those trusty pair of jeans that you’re never going to fit into.
  • Liven up your career path. Are you where you want, or deserve to be in your career? Make a move, take a chance!
  • Make amazing memories with your kids. Visit the zoo or pack a healthy picnic in the sun.
  • Smile at a stranger.
  • Nurture relationships that bring joy into your life and let go of the ones that no longer do.
  • Nourish your body with whole foods, water, exercise and sufficient sleep.
  • Believe in yourself, tell yourself often: “I’ve got this.”

Our lives are illuminated and transformed by the small things we choose to do every day. It’s time to create room for new energy to flow.

Happy spring everyone!
