Spring cleaning involves many different ways for people to organize their lives. Not only do I think of cleaning my room during this time of fresh starts, but I also think about clearing out my mind too. Spring cleaning can mean anything from cutting ties with toxic relationships, to cleaning your house to create a more organized, productive space. When you clean the unnecessary things out your life, it is like giving yourself a fresh start—which is exactly what spring entails. Our lives are constantly changing, and if we don’t focus on ourselves every once in a while we can feel emotionally drained. Not only does this mental spring cleaning help better my mindset, cleaning your room can also really help your mental focus. When my room is clean, I can be more focused on my work because I am not overwhelmed by the thought of a messy room. Organizing my room helps me to be more productive and motivated while I’m at home.
A synonym for spring is “to evolve.” Not only does this make sense because the seasons are changing (or, evolving), but this is also a time for the entirety of the natural world to start again. Spring brings us new beginnings to evolve as people as we cut out the things in our life that are weighing us down. Even though it is hard to keep motivation at the end of the school year, I highly recommend taking this time to organize your life in order to recenter your focus for the rest of the year.
