SPRING is the perfect time to take a hint from Mother Nature. Follow the three "R's" to avoid burnout and shake off the shadows of a cold winter...
I'm sharing this because we become so busy, that we often forget to transition along with Nature.
Moments of regeneration are important, and if you follow these simple steps it will help you start the season off vibrantly.
As I take you through the 5 Tips remember that they're action steps. Be prepared to get up and do something after reading these. One more thing, you might notice that each step relates the Three "R's" to a physical space. The reason is that you can not obtain the value of rejuvenation, refresh or revival if your environment is cluttered. Part of holistic living is realizing that everything is connected.
Birds start chirping, tulips pop-up and Nature is excited to shake off their winter blues. No more hibernation, it's time to enjoy the warmth.
RECIEVE the joy and feeling of the earths rotation as it warms up the soil and plants voluntarily sprout new petals.
SET ASIDE one day to prepare your home or a small space to reflect this transition.
My favorite thing to do, because there are so many benefits, is get rid of clutter or organize something. You can start with a closet and pack away heavy sweaters, scarves and winter gear.
IMAGINE clutter as both spiritual and physical weight, blocking the windows of possibilities. I wrote another blogpost about declutter called Subconscious Curating. Read more about it here.
Bring some LIFE into your space, office, kitchen, bathroom, dining room table... you got the idea.
FRESH plants offer an organic way of aesthetically pleasing your eyes and environment at the same time. Greenery & lights can turn any stale space into a place of revival.
With so many options and variations, visit a Pinterest board I created called Beautiful Soul. Think about objects or accessories that are "soul beautiful.'
Once you've created a place to rejuvenate, refresh and revive, make sure you maintain it. This is so important.
AVOID BURNOUT by visiting this space often, maybe sip your favorite tea. Having this space won't prevent problems but it will offer you a safe haven.
INCLUDE art therapy, writing or reading, basically anything that inspires you can be included. The idea is to rejuvenate your MIND, BODY & SOUL.
The work is done!
How does it feel to freshen things up in this space?
Do you feel energy, new ideas or totally relaxed?
Share your progress, I created the hashtag #SubconsciousCurating for moments like this.
Keep in mind that you can practice the Three "R's" in any area of your life. Need to revive your fitness routine? Need a [re]fresh approach to meal prep and healthy eating? Need to rejuvenate a relationship? Ahh... spring is an amazing time for positive change.
