It is time to spring clean and declutter your mind and body to make room for more joy in your life?
We have all experienced a loss of some kind during this pandemic, whether it be loss of control, freedom, normality, human contact/connection, or job/finances. You could be experiencing issues around family dynamics, around not seeing friends, health, enjoyment of life and fear for the future. Any of these can have an impact on our mental health (such as feelings of guilt, anger, regret), and our physical health (such as headaches, tension/aches and pains, disturbed sleep). Children and teenagers have had a double impact of loss with curtailed education, diminished job prospects and reduced social contact with peers.
As our thoughts turn to spring cleaning our homes, we need to turn our focus onto our own mental well-being and shift old unhelpful patterns. One of the ways of doing this is to up our self-care routine – do you have one? Do you need to start one? Do you give yourself any time to relax, unwind? Are you always giving? Are you pleasing others and putting their needs before yours?
I encourage you to take time to re-connect, recharge and replenish you. Reset through connecting with nature, walking, gardening or dancing. Become creative – drawing, painting, cooking. All of these are great for clearing the mind, releasing tension and will help your self-esteem and self-worth. Whatever your self-care practice I do hope you will find time for you.
If you need help identifying/releasing old patterns of behaviour and would like freedom from feelings of hopelessness, sadness, overwhelm, loneliness, anxiety, limiting beliefs, unhealthy patterns, procrastination and want to reach a place of happiness, confidence, and joy then I invite you to book a free 20-minute nurturing call with me on 07974 682525 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
