Spring Cleaning for the Head, the Heart, and the Home
There’s nothing like a good spring cleaning bonanza to make the world feel new. If you let it, cleaning can actually be wonderfully therapeutic. It can help you feel more in control, is a good outlet for pent up emotional energy, and is a great time for active meditation.
Since your brain tends to reflect your environment, a tidy home equals a tidy mind. Spring is the perfect time to clear away the cobwebs and the stress — everything is bright and colorful, the weather’s warming up just enough to work outside (or with the windows open) without melting, and it just seems like the world is getting a fresh start.
Whether you’re seeking the catharsis of clearing away the clutter or just need a good outlet, cleaning is effective, doesn’t require a degree in psychology, and is generally produces a better outcome than going postal…so go crazy!
