Does Your Life Need Spring Cleaning?

There are few rites of spring more satisfying than the annual clean. For many people, however, the pleasure comes only after the work is finished.

Spring is a natural time for renewal. The weather warms, days lengthen and windows open. As clean air and light pour in, you may feel inspired to let that freshness into everything—your physical space, your mind, your body. And it turns out that doing so is intricately tied to your overall health and well-being. Studies show that the rituals of cleaning and getting rid of what's no longer serving you—such as worn-out possessions, old habits, emotional ties, or unhealthy thoughts—can actually improve your physical and mental health. Your spring cleaning may never become effortless, but you can make the project more manageable -- and even enjoyable

For some just the thought of starting is overwhelming – with so many areas to clean the best place to start is with a plan.
