Spring is traditionally a time for cleaning your house. Being stuck indoors during the recent lockdown has given more opportunity for clutter to accumulate in our homes whilst also making us keen to get back out and about again. Here’s some ways to take a ‘Spring reset’ which could boost your sense of wellbeing…
Restart habits that have fallen away over the Winter 🌥️
You may have been reluctant to get outside over the colder months. With the colourful flowers and buds on the trees, now might be the ideal time to get outdoors for mindful walking. There’s so much change at the moment with new flowers appearing. Open your eyes and ears and experience what’s around you. Experience the fresh air and allow the joy of nature to distract you from any Cornonavirus worries.
Tidy up indoors 🧹
Due to being at home more often over the past few months, it’s been easy for stuff to pile up. Perhaps there’s a corner of a bookshelf where you’ve been collecting paperwork whilst working from home? Take the time to organise it and file it correctly. If you need inspiration, take a Marie Kondo book from your local library!
“Visible mess helps distract us from the true source of the disorder.”
