Spring cleaning comes around each year. And during that time everyone scatters throughout their homes to find things they can throw away, and to deep clean other areas of the home that may have been over looked. Bathrooms, ovens, inside the refrigerator as well as those closets. All of these are good items to touch up on during your spring cleaning but I also want you to think about cleaning up things such as your Finances and your body.
While your finances may have taken a recent hit due to shopping for the holidays, the New Year or you just had to have the latest trend. Now is a good time to sit down and go over your finances and get things back in order. Have credit card debt? Call and set up a payment plan that will allow you to get back on track. Bills that have gone unpaid for whatever reason? Give them a call too, and get those in order as well. Maybe you were setting money aside for a savings account and you fell on hard times so you haven’t done that either. Do you constantly find yourself in a crunch when it comes to getting your finances in order? Reach out to someone and ask for help. This could be a family member, a co-worker, or maybe even speaking to an account. Don’t be afraid to see help to get your finances back in order. Everyone runs into a problem sooner or later.
Now lets’ talk about your body! We all know setting those New Year resolutions never stick. So let’s focus on that now. It is a perfect time to start treating your body better rather it’s a change in your diet, or getting some exercise (as easy as just going for a walk). Again this isn’t something that comes easy to a lot of people and if you don’t have the right support it can be hard. Try setting small goals for yourself such as today I’m going to pick an apple for a snack over this bag of chips, or instead of watching TV get up and go for a walk just a few blocks through your neighborhood will do. Soon your body will start to feel better because you have made that better choice and things will become a little simpler over time. Don’t be afraid to talk to your doctor if you are struggling with something within yourself. Take time for yourself to decompress. This could be sitting in a quiet room, or even outside (warmer weather is coming I promise). No one will take care of you the way you should be taking care of yourself. Sometimes you have to put yourself before others so you can accomplish self-care.
