5 ways to spring clean your life
(NC)—Our minds are much like our homes. They both get cluttered with old ideas, old attitudes, old conversations and old hurts. From negative emotions and moods, to procrastination and personal tasks not completed, spring is the perfect time to insert a little positive energy into your life. The returns will be worth it, and you'll enjoy the person you can be.
Make some room for happiness
Get rid of negative emotions like anger, jealousy and self-doubt. Throw out old misunderstandings and lack of patience. Sweep out the dirt of gossip. Wash away delay and procrastination. Free up some space in your life for new and exciting opportunities and challenges.
Dust off your attitude
A positive attitude begins with gratitude. Practice giving instead of taking. Share as much love, care, concern and gratitude as possible. Volunteer or donate, for example, to a non-profit organization like Christian Children's Fund of Canada (www.ccfcanada.ca) and help save the lives of children and families living in poverty.
Choose to have a little fun every day
Put on a fresh coat of positive. Lighten up your life with humour and fun. Be in charge of your thoughts. Remember that only you can decide when to laugh and what you think about.
If everything in your life is just okay, it can be hard to make a change. When everything is fine enough, but you're not truly excited about anything, figure out how to change that. Whether it's going back to school, looking for a new job or starting a new romantic relationship, now is the time to do it. Spring is all about rebirth, so figure out what's really holding you back from optimum health and happiness and reboot your life.
