Set New Intentions
You can begin this process by asking yourself questions like, “what is going well for me?” “What is no longer serving me?” “What could use realignment or reworking? “Taking quiet time for introspection allows you to examine your priorities and make adjustments if necessary. Utilizing the newness of this season to reset your intentions is powerful. Doing so will ensure that you are in alignment with your personal goals and give you a renewed sense of focus for the remainder of your year.

Create Space by Decluttering…Hello Spring Cleaning!
Has that box in your attic worn out its welcome over the past few years? Spring is the perfect time to get rid of it. Decluttering your home environment is deeply beneficial to your overall wellbeing. When we live in a cluttered physical space, it creates a cluttered mental space in our minds. This can leave us more susceptible to low mood, stress, and anxiety. Set aside time for spring cleaning or hire a cleaning service to deep clean your home. It seems like a small task, but it can make a world of difference in how you feel!
I’d like to challenge you to do a quick experiment. Before you start your spring cleaning, take about 5 minutes to journal. Just jot down how you are feeling in that moment. Take note of the room or area that you plan to clean and write about how you feel as you sit in that space. After you’ve cleaned the area, take another 5 minutes to journal about how you feel now that the space is clean and clutter free. Notice a difference in your mood?
Use the beauty and freshness of springtime to take inventory of your health and life and begin making life-enhancing changes one step at a time. Release the things that no longer serve you or drain you and value what brings you joy. As you simplify, life becomes more rewarding.
