Spring is here, and it’s the perfect time to hit “refresh” on your life.
Dust off the cobwebs in your house and in your mind, so you can start Quarter 2 feeling as bright eyed and bushy tailed as all the baby critters that are being born.
Seriously, my neighborhood park is full of baby bunnies.
Here are 10 ways to rejuvenate your goals with a spring life reset.
1. Revisit Your Goals
Take a few moments to revisit the goals you set for yourself at the beginning of the year. Most of my clients create 12 week plans to keep their goals feeling urgent yet manageable.
Are you on track with your goals? Are those goals still important to you? Do you need to make any edits or adjustments? Refocus on what’s urgent, important, and exciting in this season of your life and design your plan to get there.
2. Declutter Your Space
Spring cleaning isn’t just for your home! Clear out your workspace, home office, car, and digital clutter too. Get rid of anything that doesn’t serve a purpose or is crowding the things you do want to see and use. Organize the things you need so you can access them easily.
3. Set Up a New Routine
Map out a new routine to help you stay productive and focused. You could plan an exercise routine, a work routine, a spirituality routine, a reading routine, a meal plan routine, or anything that sparks your fancy. Whatever it is, make it simple and doable so your new routine becomes a habit.
4. Learn Something New
Spring is a great time to learn a new skill or hobby. You could sign up for an online course, download a learning app, join a local Meetup group, or try something you’ve always wanted to do.
5. Take Time to Reflect
Carve out some time each day to reflect on your thoughts and emotions. You might do this through journaling, meditation, having a meaningful conversation, or simply taking a walk. Think about how you want to feel this season and take notice if you’ve been neglecting your self-care.
6. Plan Your Meals
Meal planning and prepping is one of my favorite things to do, and making conscious choices about your food will help you save time and reduce stress.
Meal prepping can also help you eat healthier and save money when you’re at the grocery store so you don’t buy things that will go to waste and sit forgotten and rotting in the back of the fridge.
7. Get Outside
It was so easy to get some sunshine when we were kids, but now we have to be purposeful and step away from our desks and couches. Spend time outside in nature by hiking, walking in the park, or even sitting outside and soaking up the sun.
8. Connect with Others
Reach out to friends, family, and loved ones you haven’t talked to in a while. Schedule a video call or meet up for coffee so you can see each other’s faces for extra bonding.
Connecting with others improves your mood, makes life feel more manageable, and reminds you that the people who love and support you are just a text away.
9. Practice Gratitude
If your life feels like an endless stream of the same days going on forever, then hit pause and spend time focusing on what you’re grateful for.
I write in a one-sentence-a-day gratitude journal that makes it easy for me to acknowledge the best part of my day right before I go to sleep. A consistent gratitude practice can shift your mindset to a more positive one.
10. Take a Break
Finally, take a break! You absolutely deserve it. Whether it’s a vacation or just a day off, take time to rest and recharge your mind, body, and soul. If you have a business, then pre-schedule your content and social media posts so you can take a break without completely disappearing.
