The snow and ice have melted, and nature begins to rejuvenate with life. With the change in season, many people become inspired to do some spring cleaning around the house to be rid of what is stored over the winter, to shake off the cobwebs, to start anew, and to organize their homes. Why not spring clean for mental health too! Spring clean your mental and emotional space and be rid of mental or emotional debris that is no longer effectively serving you. Start out the season by refreshing your current state of mind with a renewed outlook on life.
