Aha Moments: A Few Reflections on Wellness
‘Tis the season for the “de’s”: detox, declutter, decompress, deflect…so we can delight in recommitting to our health. You may already have a plan to cleanse your liver, but what about your life? This week’s blog focuses on detoxing your life for spring growth.
What do you want to release this spring? What’s holding you back? What’s keeping you from flourishing? What’s weighing you down? Is it old resentments? Painful memories? Are you willing to release worn-out attitudes that are no longer serving you and plant fresh new seeds in your garden so you can flourish this spring? Now is the time to detox. Let spring 2015 be the marker—the time where you make that major leap that will change your life for the better.
Now is the time to decide how to be in balance with life.
Imagine what it would be like to blossom like a lovely spring flower?
Focus on one or two areas of your life that need serious attention.
If your whole life appears to be a mess and you don’t know where to start, begin by decluttering your environment. Get rid of what you don’t need in order to loosen up space to breathe and expand. Daily clutter causes us to lose ourselves. We get caught up in everything but what is essential. Sometimes by letting go of what is suffocating us, we can breathe easier and discover who is really inside.
Next, consider your daily responsibilities. Maybe it’s a matter of reorganizing and replanning your schedule to make daily challenges lighter so you can accomplish more. Becoming better organized can help you tackle the day more successfully and feel a greater sense of accomplishment. For example, if you are a morning person, try to accomplish more urgent things before noon. If you find yourself stressed over connecting with others throughout the entire day, schedule one particular time to read and reply to e-mails, return calls, post to social media, etc. With that out of the way, you can focus on what is important to you.
Identify what is inhibiting your growth. Spring detox is about more than cleansing your internal organs. It’s also about releasing, letting go, lightening the load so you can spend time working on your garden—working on those projects and goals that will help you bloom and shine.
