As we move into the new year, many of us think about cleaning out, renewing, re-doing, revisiting old projects that need cleaned out.
The act of cleaning out or cleansing is really a practice we all use daily for our well being. Whether it's brushing our teeth, bathing, skin regimens, nail care or hair styling, we all look for ways to refresh ourselves.
Providing yourself an environment--whether at home, vacation or work that provides you a feeling of being refreshed, is an important step in getting yourself on a path of rejuvenation.
Getting rid of the old, and bringing in the new is also a way to get centered and re-focused on things that matter to you.
And you don't have to wait until January to start over or refresh.
Maybe you change how much sleep you get or what you eat for breakfast or spending less time on social media.
Whatever ways you find that will refresh yourself and your environment--don't wait for a holiday or vacation or summer to begin.
Our best intentions can be lived out whenever we decide to do so.
Sometimes it's fun to include your family on ways to refresh or renew. By including your family, you can help hold each other accountable with gentle reminders and support to keep on the new path of rejuvenation.
Our teeth need refreshed daily, twice a day if you're listening to your dentist; our minds and spirit also need refreshed too.
Make an effort to make one small change this year!
