Spring Cleaning for Your Mind, Body and Spirit

posted by Alex Blackwell

”Right now at this very moment we have a mind, which is all the basic equipment we need to achieve complete happiness.” – Howard Cutler

Welcome Spring!

After a harsh winter, relief is coming. Spring is here. As you clean out your garage and closets, why not take the opportunity to do some spring cleaning for your mind, body and spirit, too.

Mind

Meditate – A 15-minute meditation session will clear your mind and give you fresh perspective. It’s easy to feel overwhelmed, stressed, and weighed down by all the mental clutter.

A meditation session will be sure to help you re-prioritize, de-stress, and have a renewed sense of energy. It’s extremely important to give yourself spiritual and psychological maintenance. Keeping your mind and spirit invigorated will help you keep up with the demands of your life and schedule.

Body

Low-impact cardio – You don’t have to run a marathon to reap the benefits of exercise. A low-level exercise, such as walking or doing beginner’s yoga, benefits your cardiovascular system, blood circulation, lungs, and muscles.

In addition, it will give you a rush of feel-good hormones and renew you physically and mentally. You’ll be surprised at how just a ten-minute workout, of even a beginner’s level exercise, will help you feel better in body and mind.

Spirit

Emotional inventory - Sometimes, you have to take stock of what’s important on an emotional and psychological level. What are some things holding you back? What’s weighing you down and having a negative impact on your life? It could be something that’s keeping you from being promoted at work, it could be something that’s affecting your relationships, or it could be a person who is toxic in your life.

Doing an emotional inventory will help you re-evaluate what is affecting you and what you need to adjust or eliminate to have a healthier, happier life
