Tis' this season for Spring cleaning! And no, we're not talking about throwing out your old clothes or getting down and dirty scrubbing the kitchen, we're talking about a mental cleanse! Sometimes we over-focus on our exteriors being all tidy, but what about the interior? As the weather starts to warm up and the flowers begin to bloom, we're taking charge of our happiness and removing all negative things from our life. Here's how to cleanse your mind for a fresh start.
The things we consume in our day-to-day life unknowingly affect our subconscious and, in turn, our emotions and mood. From the TV shows we pick to the podcasts we listen to, and even the people we follow on social media, it all impacts us (even if you don't notice it). So how do we fix this? First off, get rid of anything that doesn't motivate or inspire you. Let's start off with the books you read, rather than another murder mystery, check out a self-help book that will get your creative juices flowing and expand your mind to new information. The same thing goes for podcasts, we have the ability to learn thousands of new things, so why not use that to our advantage? The options are endless, from wellness to money-making tips, to motivational speakers. The audio medium can truly help induce a positive change in your life this season.
And while we're on the topic of things we listen to, let's discuss music choices. Yes, it can feel good to cry your heart out to a sad playlist, but is that really helping you get in a good mood? Probably not. So instead, listen to fun, happy tunes and dance your bad feelings away. But don't just take our word for it - there was actually a study done that showed how effective listening to songs could lift people's moods. What a great way to be refreshed for Spring!
Last but not least, take away any toxic content from your social media feed. Unfollow the people who may make you constantly feel negative thoughts whenever their posts pop up on your socials. Instead, follow motivational and helpful accounts to get you in good spirits. From our home to yours, have a happy Spring!
