Refresh your mind: A Spring Cleaning for Mental Health

The weather is changing and as everyone is starting to think about spring cleaning it is also the perfect time to think about some spring cleaning for your mental health! Just as we work to tidy up our physical spaces, we can also engage in mental spring cleaning to cultivate a fresh new outlook with sunny days ahead!

  1. Declutter your thoughts: Take stock of your mental clutter and look at identifying the negative thought patterns or worries that would no longer serve you. Practice mindfulness and acknowledge these thoughts and then let them go.

  2. Nurture positive habits: Introduce habits that will promote mental well-being. Need some ideas? Start a gratitude journal, meditation practice or spend some time in nature. 

  3. Set boundaries: Spring is a time for growth, but it is a time to set boundaries to protect your mental health. Learn to say no to commitments that drain your energy and prioritize activities that bring you joy and fulfillment. 

  4. Connect with others: Enjoy the meaningful connections with friends, family and support groups. Social support is crucial for mental health!

  5. Embrace change: Just as the season and nature changes in spring, be open to changes and growth in your own life. Embrace new experiences, challenges and opportunities for personal development. 

Engaging in spring cleaning for your mental health can help create space for positivity, growth and resilience. This sets the stage for a fulfilling summer ahead!
