This is a time of life that you must learn to let go. As we shift from one season to the next I want to encourage you to not bring forward the habits that don’t serve you. Just like the animals coming out of hibernation, it’s time to crawl out of your cave, freshen up your routine and wake up your life!
My top five ways to wake up for spring:
1. 10 day detox
If you didn’t start the 10 day detox with me on Monday, fear not. You can start this any Monday. If you place an order for the Herbal Cleansing System by this Thursday, you will get it in time to start it April 1. Simply watch the video, read the blog and prepare on Sunday for your success.
2. Get active outdoors
I made a promise to take Maverick for walks outside at least three times a week. I squeeze these in on lunch breaks or after work since it's still pretty dark out in the early morning. Tray cleaned the yard all day Saturday, giving the shrubs a fresh cut, blowing the weeds and ripping things out that needed to go. It looks so great to see space in the front yard! Get your vitamin D flowing by spending time outdoors. It will make your heart and head feel so much better. Bask in the light of love and be the sunshine to people around you.
3. Reconnect with your friends
Over the winter, people tend to reschedule plans, or shift dates due to weather. A lot of times you don’t get to see people you love with holidays and winter doldrums. Make a date, or double date, with friends that you love. Go to a restaurant, sit on a patio, go for a walk, just make time to reconnect. Your heart will thrive on building community!
4. Get organized
Spring cleaning is a thing for a reason. The truth is, our stuff can weigh us down. There is an old book called Does This Clutter Make My Butt Look Fat. And, it does! When you are feeling overwhelmed, all you have to do is clean out your closet, your car or make your bed and you will feel like a new person. Getting your closet and home office organized sets you up for success. My rule is to go through every season of clothes after the season. I look at each piece and honestly answer the question, "did I wear this at all and will I wear this next year?" If the answer is no or "sort of", then it goes into the donation pile. You must make room in your life for newness. New clothes, spring shoes and a fresh perspective. Best of all, reducing clutter, reduces anxiety and stress.
5. Give to those that need it
When you're in your closet, you might as well make the most of it. There are so many people that have far less than we do and would love to wear that shirt you hate (but hold on to for some emotional reason). Every season I give a large portion of my wardrobe to donation centers. Using the tips from above, I downsize my clothes for the upcoming season a year in advance. Go though your winter clothes, shoes, coats, hats, purses and workout clothes. Make donation piles of the items that are no's and maybe's. You don't need the maybe's—trust me! Get rid of old, make room for new, and make someone else happier along the way.
