Spring is here which means it’s time to shake off those winter blues and put that oomph back into your step. Like clockwork, this is the time of year we feel the urge to de-clutter our homes. But why not take it further and give the rest of your life a good clean out too? Let the life edit begin!

Recreate your space

Your home is your haven. Creating a beautiful sanctuary that you can retreat to is important for your mental state. Adding a floral touch, piece of art, candles or some new furniture could be just what you need to revitalise your space. At the same time, it’s important to shift the energy in your home by rummaging through those cupboards. Ditch the clutter and any junk you may have accumulated.

Spruce up your diet

Fallen off the clean eating bandwagon a bit over winter? Now is the perfect time to give your diet a reboot! Spring clean your kitchen of foods that are heavily refined and overly-processed. Replace them with the good old basics including wholegrains, vegetables and fruit and lean protein. Revitalise your relationship with food by taking advantage of all the delicious seasonal produce that spring welcomes such as melons, leeks, silverbeet and more.

Clean up your relationships

Spring is the best time to air everything out. If you feel as though you have a relationship which isn’t serving you as well as it used to then now is the time to take a step back and reassess your position in it. Holding onto painful or toxic emotions can be detrimental to your health and happiness. Aim to surround yourself with positive people who inspire you and relationships that fulfil you rather than drain you.

Revitalise your body

Winter can often mean we drop the ball with moving our body but spring is the time to get excited about exercising again. Trying out a new workout, banding together with a gym buddy or joining a boot camp may be just what you need to recharge your fitness routine.

Cleanse your mind

Stress and anxiety can be hugely detrimental to your health. If you’re constantly feeling overwhelmed and busy start implementing some daily practices to take the pressure down. Yoga, deep belly breathing, meditation and spending time in nature are all great stress-busters!
