Spring Cleaning – Mind Body & Soul

With the clocks springing forward this weekend what better time to discuss some spring cleaning?! Typically, spring cleaning entails going through your old clothes, cleaning the grime from behind the refrigerator, and replacing your holiday wreath with some fresh flowers. Remember those resolutions we all set a couple months back? Let’s revisit those (:

Remember when we all said we would eat healthy, be active, and exercise every single day of 2016?! Well . . . We don’t need to go quite that far. However, I do think it is a good idea to go back to those goals and touch on them at this time. I think spring cleaning is about SO much more than just junking your old winter things and organizing your vanity. Spring is a rebirth. How beautiful to be given this time to grow and blossom. Grow your mind, body, and soul. Revisit those goals of personal growth.

With this rebirth of the seasons I am focusing on bettering myself and being aware and appreciative of my surroundings. I strive to cleanse my body. I have started doing this by eating better. It’s amazing the difference your body feels when you eat wholesome and healthy foods. I am also exercising more! I have been so terrible and getting active and staying fit over the past couple of years. But, that’s changed! Over thre past month I have been working out more and more. I enjoy going to the gym and I love taking yoga classes. I’ve even been considering taking a course the become a certifified yoga instructor I love it so much. Exercising is one of those things that once you get in the swing of things you fall in love with it and want to keep going. Get motivitsted and get going!

This ties into my next “cleansing” of this spring. My mind. Exercising really helps clear my mind and keep me focused on just what I’m doing in that moment. Along with that I have been taking every opportunity I have to go on walks. With the temperatures getting up there being outside has been amazing recently! I took my dog for a long walk along the ocean and it couldn’t have been a more perfect afternoon. It allowed me to get outside, explore a place I had never been, and laugh endlessly while my white dog rolled in the muddy trail along the beach.

This spring I challenge you to revisit your goals for the year, get outside, and cleanse your mind, body, and soul. Don’t forget to clean your house thought, because that is a great place to start! Happy spring! Don’t let the clocks springing forward Sunday morning set you back! (:
