Spring Clean Your Body and Mind

Posted on Wed, Mar 29, 2017

Around this time of the year there is lots of talk, articles and videos about spring cleaning. Most of this focus is on spring cleaning your house – getting rid of the 10 extra black sweaters, 5 identical pairs of jeans, stacks of worn-out towels, and kitchen gadgets you used once.

It’s a brand new year. So many of us look to the New Year as way to hit the refresh button and make major changes. These changes can include exercising more, finding a new job, paying off debt, or making efforts to reduce your screen time. All of these changes are excellent.
