Spring - the time of year when despite the unpredictable weather, the days become longer and warmer. All around, there are signs of activity, bulbs are flowering, trees are budding and the birds are chirping. Spring is the perfect time for renewal, rejuvenation and to motivate yourself to make some positive changes to your life.
Declutter - A great place to start is with the traditional ‘spring clean’. Room by room scrub every surface from top to bottom. Empty cupboards and consider your belongings carefully before returning them. In the words of William Morris “Have nothing in your house that you do not know to be useful, or believe to be beautiful’’. Discard items that you no longer need use. Consider giving good quality items a new life by donating it to your favourite charity.
Be happy – let the joy of the spring weather improve your outlook on life. The advantages of a positive attitude extend way beyond your immediate surrounds. Smile, be enthusiastic, and delight in small pleasures. When things don’t go your way, use laughter - your ability to see the bright side will increase your confidence and ensure others want to spend time with you.
Be brave - take your newfound confidence to the streets, the supermarket or even the gym. Spring provides a wonderful opportunity to take yourself out to meet people and make new friends. Open yourself to new experiences and dare to try something you have always dreamt of. The challenge is the first step - you will feel lighter, happier and reinvigorated.
