Spring Clean Your Brain
Feeling a tad wiped out by this last year? It’s been quite a ride. Time to take a step back and regroup, Spring is always good for that. We clean house, hold garage sales, dust off the New Year’s Resolutions and see if we’ve made any progress. It’s a wondrous time of year to remember that even in the darkest of times, there is always Hope.
Don’t just clean out the house this Spring – Take your brain out and hose it off. Then dance with it for awhile.
Turn off the TV tonight and make a decision to sit on the back porch and enjoy the earth waking up again. Make plans to go to your local Botanical Garden. Schedule a massage. Take a friend or sweetheart dancing. Get brave and cook up something wild and different. Contact an old friend you haven’t seen in awhile. Repot some flowers. Reframe an old picture, Build a birdhouse.
Whatever you do, don’t make it hard work. Do something creative and fun that re-energizes you. If you need a reason – here’s one: Your Endorphin System Requires it. Stress wears out your endorphin system. Too much cortisol is produced (which causes those sudden extra rolls around your waist!) And you start to feel burned out.
Creativity, laughter, new or different routines — these are the things that wake up your internal pharmacy and make you happy again. Renew Yourself. Not just for you, but for all of us. We need you. And we need you healthy!
Take care of yourself. The world won’t end if you don’t read every single email, Tweet, and blog (except this one!) Go outside and enjoy Spring!
All the best,
