With spring in full bloom and summer just around the corner its a wonderful time to spring clean. Consider cleaning from the inside out. Purging the weight of winter and making space for the light breeze and warm days of spring are refreshing and renewing. In my effort to spring clean my internal house, I recently embarked upon a 14 day conscious eating and yoga challenge. I have shed some unwanted extra pounds and strengthened my yoga practice in the process.
Here are a few tips for spring cleaning.
1 – Get out and move. According to Dr. Oz the top 3 ways to live a healthier, happier life are:
a – move more b – eat less c – manage stress
2 – Eat less. Think about bringing more nature into your diet. Think color when preparing to eat. A simple technique is to be sure the rainbow is on your plate. Eating colorfully ensures vibrancy.
3 – Yoga is one of the best ways to manage stress. It’s all about that breath. Take deep conscious breaths especially when engaged in anything that is not helping you to smile!
4 – Be grateful. Start your day with an attitude of gratitude. Whenever you wake up, allow gratitude be the first thought in your mind and mental say thank you, for this day, this breath, this moment.
5- Notice your surroundings. Smell flowers, listen for birds. You will be amazed at how these simple acts will transform your thinking.
