Spring cleaning your life
How many times have you got to the end of a non stop day, looked back and wondered what you have achieved?
You've been busy, but have you actually done anything meaningful and important?
Often, as we go through life, we 'collect' activities and they become ingrained in our daily routine.
As time goes on, these activities can begin to take over, to dominate our lives.
We can get to a point were we just don't have enough hours in the day to do it all, and we can begin to feel completely overwhelmed.
We spring clean our homes, clearing the clutter, making it feel light and airy.
So why not do the same with our lives.
Examine the things, the rituals that you do each day.
Are they still important? Do they achieve anything meaningful? Would you really miss them if you stopped?
If the answer to any of the above is no, then maybe it is time to let the activity go.
By letting go of these redundant rituals, we leave space to breathe, space to rest, space to just be and enjoy life.
So set to and spring clean your life, give yourself permission to stop doing unnecessary things and enjoy a new, more uncluttered life today.
