We are only a few days away from a new cycle that is ideal for reinventing ourselves. Here are some tips to help you do just that.
The arrival of the new seasons has been a relevant moment for several cultures. Nature and its cycles were (and still are) deeply linked to the cycles of the men: each one is an opportunity to start new paths, take up again what worked at some point, and remove from our life what no longer has a place in it.
To start this new cycle, you must prepare yourself mentally and spiritually. Here are some practices that can help you renew your energy to welcome spring.
- Do a deep cleaning
Evaluate what you keep at home. Does everything that takes up space in your home belong here? Check your clothes, furniture, decorative objects, appliances, containers: likely that many of them are not useful to you at this time of your life, or worse, maybe some of them bring back bad memories or get in your way. The Feng Shui philosophy assures that the space in which we live and the objects that surround us directly influence our thoughts and us. That’s why it is indispensable to have near what is useful and makes you happy.
- Free yourself from toxic relationships
Another way to do a deep cleaning is to evaluate the energy of your relationships. Is there someone with whom you are in perpetual conflict? Is there no way to resolve it? Is someone asking for an amount of attention, love, and resources from you that no one could satisfy? Consciously and honestly analyze which ties don’t respect your boundaries and devote time and energy only to that which nurtures you, is reciprocal, and helps you grow.
The arrival of the new seasons has always been a relevant moment for different cultures.
- Get rid of harmful practices
Make a list of everything that is hurting you: too many hours of work? Too much stress? Do not eat healthy? It’s time to be disciplined and abandon everything that doesn’t allow you to evolve, dedicate time to your projects, and have a peaceful life.
Meditation is a great tool to get mental clarity and tranquility. It is also a practice that reduces stress, improves concentration, and combats substance addiction. The benefits of meditation for physical, mental, and spiritual health are supported in several scientific studies conducted by institutions such as Stanford University and Harvard Medical School. If you don’t know how to get started, you can use an app with guided meditations (such as Headspace).
