Spring cleaning your house is an annual event but have you ever given your life a Spring cleaning? Lately I have been trying to do just that. In the winter I am all about nesting, hibernation and comfort. I find myself going out less, eating more and to be honest, other than my yoga class every morning, getting a little lazy. If it is too cold I use that as an excuse not to get outside and get my 10,000 steps and instead take my pups for walk in the cul de sac. I am less strict about the pasta, pizza and copious amounts of chocolate I consume. Once I see the buds on the trees and the daffodils swaying in the wind I know it is time for me to get going and get motivated.
The last few weeks I have found myself eating more vegetables, salads and fruits, I have limited my pizza and pasta to one meal a week. I have been cleaning the cobwebs out of my mind, as they say, by getting outside, walking by the shore or thru the neighborhood and taking note of the blooming trees, and even the weeds. I have cleaned out my closet and gotten rid of the pieces that no longer fit or suit my style.
I am back at the library, bringing home stacks of books instead of spending time scrolling thru Instagram and Pinterest. I am growing tired of the changes in the algorithms of social media and lack of control over the things I see and the people I interact with. I personally have always preferred the connection with the people I have met thru blogging as opposed to the “perfect” world and images of Instagram and Pinterest. That said, I have purged my feeds, and have unfriended, unfollowed, and unliked people and pages that don’t connect with or like their message.
I am making plans for upcoming trips and looking forward to warm sunny days and time with family and friends this spring and summer. I have a little more spring cleaning to do on myself but this is what I have been up to lately.
Do you spring clean your life as well as your house? What are some of the things that you do to make a fresh start for spring and summer and shed the weight of a long winter?
I hope that you have a great day!
