We are all probably ready for spring and the warm weather and flowers blooming. Spring might also bring to mind Spring Cleaning. Some of us dread it, some of us love it. While it is great to get your home in shape, what about the rest of your life?
You may not think about people when mentioning spring cleaning. Spring is a time for change and blooming. If there are people in your life that are negative or holding you back, it may be time to sweep them out of your life for good. While this may sound harsh, do some soul searching. There might be that one person that you just don’t need to hang around with any longer.
When was the last time you cleaned up old pictures or posts on your social media accounts? Maybe you have photos that looked fun but now are embarrassing. Delete, delete! If you are in a different place in your life, let your new posts and pics reflect that. Get rid of pictures with people that are not in your life- who needs a reminder of that ex you dumped? Make a fresh start.
Music and Media
Have an Ipod or store a lot of music on your tablet or laptop? It is probably time to shake your selections up a little. Get rid of the songs that you always skip over or really don’t like that much. Make an effort to try something new and download some upbeat songs. Maybe clean up your playlists or make new ones. Get a new groove on while working out or something to keep you motivated at work.
You probably have a drawer or closet with gifts or old cards from your exes. Why keep this stuff? Even ticket stubs from fun events don’t need to clutter up your life. If you aren’t going to make a scrapbook, either take a photo with your phone or just trash it. Anything with a bad memory you need to dump, now! Even good memories stay in our minds, and we don’t always need to keep a physical reminder.
Now that you’ve done some spring cleaning in your life you will feel like a weight is gone. Maybe you have the energy now to tackle that spring cleaning around the house, too!
