Refill Your Cup with Self-Care

Genuine, sustained self-care is an art.

Letting Go

Posted by Michele Crawford - Health

I hope you are enjoying some warmer days and sunshine. With the official start of spring just a few days away, I would like to discuss the idea of letting go of what no longer serves you. Spring is a time of renewal, of planting new seeds. In efforts to make way for the newness of the season (physically, mentally and emotionally), it may be necessary to let go of a thing or two.

What needs to be released will be different for everyone. This may be a habit, behavior, negative thought pattern or emotion. When we take the time to assess, we often find some of the choices we make in life provide temporary satisfaction, yet really do not align with our higher goals.

If we are honest with ourselves, most of us probably have something in our lives we could let go. For some this may be releasing judgmental thoughts, for others it may be finally shredding all that old paperwork, it may even be a toxic relationship in your life that needs to end.

Things may not change overnight; sometimes a gradual release serves us best. Either way, if you have identified something in your life which no longer serves you, consider some of the following to help facilitate the process:

  • Journaling
  • Spending time in nature
  • Writing positive affirmations
  • Practicing breath work

I welcome each and every one of you to begin preparing your own personal soil so that it may be healthy, rich and fertile as you begin planting those new spring seeds. I think of it as spring-cleaning for the soul!
