Spring is a time for fresh new beginnings. This is why we associate a deep cleaning of our homes with springtime. We all want to shed the things that were holding us back during the colder months and enter spring feeling fresh and rejuvenated.
If you think that you have some room to improve, then follow these tips on how you can improve yourself and become a better version of you this spring.
Most TV shows end their seasons in early spring. This makes spring a perfect time to take a break from TV and spend those hours you would usually spend watching a screen reading a good book instead. You don’t have to read some complicated text or a self-improvement book. Even reading whatever fiction book is currently trending will do way more to keep you mentally engaged than staring at a screen ever could.
Take An Alcohol Break
When you’re trying to improve yourself, alcohol can just hold you back. Many people take a month off from drinking in January to symbolize the start of a new year. While you don’t have to go a full month, consider taking a week or two off from alcohol. You’ll be amazed at how much fresher and more alert you feel. If you suspect that your relationship with alcohol might be problematic, consider online substance abuse courses.
Clean and Reorganize
No springtime self-improvement initiative would be complete without some good old fashioned spring cleaning. Devote a weekend to cranking your favorite music and getting down to business with your clutter. Get rid of the clothing and decor items that no longer make you happy, thereby making room for newer items. Don’t be afraid to get down and dirty and really clean those areas that you typically neglect, such as the spaces behind bookshelves.
Don’t just think of January as a time for resolutions and fresh starts. Think of spring as a second chance to achieve those goals that you perhaps didn’t fully accomplish after the new year. You’ll feel better and more accomplished as the seasons change and the days become longer and hotter.
