It is time to clean up your act and start living a sparkling new life. If you want to live each day to the fullest, it is time to dust away what isn’t working and buff up all areas of your life. .
1. Dust away the relationships that no longer serve you.
We all have had those relationships in our lives that have becoming draining or even toxic. Now is the time to dust away those people in our lives that bring us down or at the very least hold us back. Negative energy is difficult to combat, it is better to let go of those that are not contributing positively, or at very least limit our contact with them, and bring in some fresh new friends.
2. Trash those nasty habits.
We all have them, a habit or two that simply isn’t contributing to our lives. Pick one of those habits and get rid of it. This won’t happen overnight, this is a spring-cleaning project, but just working on getting rid of the habit will be a step in the right direction.
3. Clean up the old credit report.
Several of my clients have been shocked when they have been turned down for a loan or refinancing because of their credit reports. When they checked into it, they discovered items that were not even theirs or ones that should have been removed years before on there credit report. Now is a great time to clean up that credit report and make sure it is bright and shiny.
4. Freshen up your space – Re-decorate
Spring is a great time to re-decorate. This doesn’t’ have to be costly. Simply rearrange furniture for a more pleasing arrangement, lighten up fabrics and pillows and store anything that reminds you of winter. This would be a great time to bring some positive chi into your space with a little Feng Shui. Also get rid of anything you don’t love in your home or office. Clutter on the outside is simply a reflection of what is going on internally in our lives.
5. Create a Fun Fund
Put a little back each week for something special, like a fun vacation or day at the Spa. Make a commitment not to touch the money until you have enough saved for the treat, and enjoy the process and fun of anticipation.
6. Give it back
If you have borrowed something from anyone, now is the time to give it back. Anything that doesn’t belong to you such as those overdue library books and the shoes from your best friend need to go back.
7. Spring into action
Is there something that you have wanted to do but haven’t made the time for? Well, spring into action and get to work. There is no time like the present to begin turning our goals into reality.
8. Dust off those dreams
Now is also a great time to dust off those dreams and begin to refocus on what is most important to you. We can get so bogged down in the day to day stuff, that we can forget what our real goals are. Now is the time to clear the space and begin to realize that dream.
9. Freshen up
We can all get stuck in a rut. Now is a great time to freshen up our look, be it a new hairstyle or new addition to our wardrobe. This doesn’t have to be an overhaul; perhaps just a few additions of something in a new spring color will help add that touch of new to our look.
Practice deeply breathing in the fresh air, clear you lungs and your mind. Deep breathing will help you clean out the cobwebs in your mind and give you a fresh new perspective on life.
