Spring Clean with Elle VieBy Kimberly Seals
Spring time is fast approaching. And for many, that means out with the old and in with the new. If you’re ready for a refresh but need a little inspiration, motivation, or you’re just not sure where to start, Elle Vie has you covered with our top tips to declutter and reorganize your life.
Declutter Your Space
When most of us think of spring cleaning, we probably think of our home first. Who doesn’t have a closet or garage that could use some attention? But you don’t have to go straight for the biggest project to start refreshing your space. Choose a space that you spend a lot of time in and ask yourself how you can make it work best for you. This could be your bedroom, office, car, or even your phone. It only makes sense that wherever you’re spending a large chunk of your time is comfortable, clutter free(ish), and set up for you to do and be your best.
But if you’re not quite ready to start rearranging your space, there are some other great ways to hit that refresh for the new season.
Declutter Your Mind
As much as we love keeping busy, the day to day can get overwhelming. If you find yourself forgetting important tasks, distracted, or extra worried, now may be a good time to declutter your mind.
A great way to start is by writing things down (yes this is an excuse for a cute new journal) and getting everything out of your head and onto the page. From there, you can prioritize what is most important to you and create space in your mind to relax.
Declutter Your Routine
The thing about routines is that they become, well, routine. And while that is usually a good thing, it can quickly turn into the opposite if your routine is no longer working for you.
When was the last time you really took a good look at your usual routine? Hint, now is a great time to give it a try. Some questions you may want to ask yourself are: what has changed in your life and does your routine reflect that? Could your beauty routine use an update? What about your sleep schedule?
You may not need to make any major changes here. Sometimes a small shift, like adding an Elle Vie sugar scrub to your skincare routine, can make a huge difference. The important thing is that your routines work for what you need.
Live Your Best Life
The thought of spring cleaning can certainly be daunting. But it’s important to remember that the motivation to do so shouldn’t come from shame or stress but from a desire to do what's best for you.
Whatever updates you make to your life this season, make sure they're empowering you to live your life to the fullest.
