A mental spring cleaning gives us the opportunity to clear our mind, get rid of habits that don’t serve us, plant seeds of positivity and start creating the life we want

Try these three simple tips to spring clean your mind:

  1. Start meditating? spend 5 minutes in nature a day or even better ensure you are awake and fully there for every conversation, task and experience.
  2. Dissolve negative behaviours? have a whinge-free day or set aside time for a “stress ban”. “Challenge the way you think and see things from a different perspective,” Susan says.
  3. Do activities that nourish your brain?? visit an art gallery, choose a magazine you’d never normally read or study a language. “Keep your neural networks firing and growing.”



Our skin is our largest organ, and sweating can be an effective method of detox. Give your body some shock treatment and overhaul or restart your exercise routine, you do not need to head straight out and run a marathon, but if you?ve had a sluggish winter you need “to shock the body in spring and reap the benefits in summer”.
