Spring Cleaning: Mind and Body

Ahhhh Spring Cleaning, the most wonderful time of the year. Winter's gone and things are looking mushy outside (and inside). The transition period isn't always easy but it feels so good once you get things going. I've probably done the most cleaning ever this Spring. I took part in my first cleanse. I did an Ayurvedic Cleanse to firstly and most obviously clear out toxins, take out the trash, restore blood sugar levels, increase energy, boost metabolism and overall recharge. I was feeling tired and lethargic like many people do at this time of year. While it was really difficult at times, I really needed this. I feel a lot more energized, lighter, and triumphant (I can say that right?).  

Another form of spring cleaning I'm taking part in this spring is cleaning out negative self talk. I know I'm not alone in sometimes being my worst enemy. I can be really hard on myself and this translates into some really awful self talk. You know that voice in your head that tells you you're ugly or going nowhere or going to fail? That's the voice you need to challenge. 

Start small. Surround yourself with positive affirmations, quotes, and sayings. Put them wherever you know you'll see them. Your fridge, your phone, or your Facebook page, you know where to put them. And even if you don't believe you're beautiful or funny or strong, just read your affirmations and repeat them everyday. You'll notice a difference. Eventually the affirmations will shape your reality. You can re-wire your thoughts and change that voice in your head. You'll not only notice a more happier inside but you'll actually look and feel more beautiful on the outside. 

I'll help you get started. Follow this link and save your favourite affirmation to your computer. Set it as your Facebook or Twitter cover photo. Not only will you see it a lot but your friends will too. Spread positivity, happiness, and love. It's contagious.
