Spring’s in the air! It’s a perfect time to refresh, refocus and realign with yourself and your business after a long winter. Nothing feels better than a fresh perspective and that’s exactly why I’m talking to you about the magic of spring cleaning in your business.
Spring is a season of creation and growth. It’s also the perfect time to let go of what no longer serves you and realign with your goals for the year. Here are some simple and powerful ways you can spring clean your business and make room for the new.
1. Clear the Clutter
Clutter comes in all shapes and sizes. It’s not just about having a messy desk or unorganized filing cabinet. Clutter can be mental, emotional and energetic. The good news is - where there’s clutter, there’s also an opportunity to simplify. Some areas to scan in your business include:
- Physical spaces - workspace, desktop, inbox, dropbox, calendars etc.
- Marketing content - social media, messaging, website, etc.
- Organizational - systems, processes, people etc.
- Mental/emotional - negative self-talk, overwhelming thoughts, fears etc.
The main goal is to identify where you feel blocked, misaligned or overwhelmed. Trust your intuition. Once you’ve identified where you want to clear the clutter, begin to consciously purge and organize this aspect of your business bringing full awareness to the space you are creating.
2. Close Any Open Loops
Another way to create a lighter, cleaner energy in your business is to look for any open loops. Open loops are dreams, relationships, and situations that have not been fully resolved.
These sneaky little situations can deplete our energy because there is no closure. This might be a conversation you need to have, a relationship you need to mend or you may decide something is done and close the loop on your own. Intention alone can be very powerful.
Another tip is to review your goals for things you’ve outgrown or no longer feel connected to. Cross them off the list and remember that your goals are allowed to expire too.
3. Welcome The New
Spring is a time of creation – flowers blossom, trees grow, and the warmth of the sun welcomes new dreams and adventures. It’s just this sort of magical energy that helps everything grow, especially your business!
Now that you’ve created the space, you can begin to look at what you need most right now to flourish.
Where do you want more growth?
What intentions are you planting?
What ideas are beginning to bloom?
By following these three simple steps you’ll be able to clear space for the new, reconnect with your path and create a fertile foundation for growth.
Happy spring cleaning, my friends!
