Spring Cleaning for Our Minds and Spaces

Spring is here. It’s a season of renewal and and an opportunity for clearing out your mental and physical spaces.

Spring cleaning has a number of mental health benefits. It gives you a sense of control over your environment that can help you manage stress and anxiety in your daily life. And making your space more open and tidy is both calming and energizing. 

We share 5 guiding questions, with examples from our lives, to help you figure out:

  • which types of spring cleaning will free up the most bandwidth for you
  • what the good / better / best version of “done” looks like, and
  • small steps you can take to get to “good.”
