Spring Cleaning for the Mind

Mental Health Tips & Techniques

Spring is a season for opportunity, renewal, and fresh beginnings. This season, why not extend the tradition of spring cleaning beyond your home to include your mental health and well-being? Mental clutter and everyday stress can significantly impact your well-being, and sweeping out those cobwebs can help to improve your mood and replenish your focus and energy.

Top Tips for Mental Spring Cleaning

  • Assess Your Mental Landscape. Identify what feels cluttered or what triggers stress. Acknowledging your feelings and pinpointing what makes you overwhelmed can help you figure out what to address directly, what to prioritize, and what requires a different approach. 

  • Set Realistic Goals. Spring is the perfect time to set new goals. However, before committing to them, make sure they are clear, achievable, and aligned with your values. Working towards achievable goals will help you direct your energy and focus, and keep you motivated.

  • Develop Self-Care. Self-care is vital for mental health. Create a routine that includes activities that bring you peace and joy - exercising, reading, cooking, being outside, etc. Even if just for a few minutes each day, make a promise to yourself that you will take time to focus on self-care. 

  • Declutter Your Space. Take time to organize and declutter your personal and work spaces. You’ll find that a fresh space will help you focus better on the task at hand.

  • Limit Screen Time. We get it, endless scrolling seems relaxing, however, social media is a huge trigger for stress and anxiety. Cut your time scrolling to focus on self-care practices instead and your well-being will improve.

  • Create Positive Connections. Surround yourself with people who are supportive and uplifting. Build personal connections with people that make you feel comfortable to both celebrate your success and share your concerns. 

  • Practice Gratitude. Take a moment each day to practice gratitude. Think of three things that you are grateful for at that moment, and even write them down. Practicing gratitude helps you shift from focusing on the negatives to thinking about the positives, and is a great way to improve your mood.

  • Find Support. It’s okay to ask for help. Reaching out to a professional can provide you with the support and strategies you need to move forward, stay focused, and reenergize your mental well-being.
