Spring is officially here and it’s the perfect time to get rid of things that weigh you down or you no longer need. I just know there's something huge that you’ve been meaning to do or discard but have been dragging your feet on it. Maybe you’ve put off updating your resume ignoring you’re desire for a new job or you've stopped investing in the savings account you no longer check because you simply haven’t been, well saving. It’s time to figure out what's making you feel heavy so you can you can shift that energy to light and free.
Just as you probably clean your home or purge you closets for the spring season you should also do some spring-cleaning in the areas of your life you’ve overlooked.
Some of you may know exactly what you’ve been putting off so you can just get to it. Some of you may not be sure what's weighing you down here’s what you can do to figure it out. Ask yourself what is the one thing on your to-do list that you’ve put off all winter – because it was too cold, too hard, or maybe it was just too scary, and so it was easier to avoid it.
Name key areas of your life (finances, love, relationships, career, spirituality, community) aloud and look for visceral cues in your body. Look for when you mention a specific area of life if there is a reaction in your body. Everyone's body will communicate using different language. Your heart may race, your chest tighten, or you may experience shortness of breath or that annoying nervous tick on your eye.
Once you’ve figured which area of your life can use some sprucing up, spring-cleaning is pretty fun and easy to do.
First, create or update your DREAM for the area of life that feels most troublesome.
Next take 15 minutes to reflect on and DISCOVER reasons why your current reality doesn’t meet expectations for your dream. Tell the truth about why things are the way they are. This is the heart of the Design You Coaching approach :)
DESIGN new commitments to hold yourself accountable for taking steps each day to move toward your vision.
The thing you’ve been avoiding really weighs you down making you feel sad, disappointed, and stressed. Remember you have the tools and power to change all that. Now it’s time to crank up the music, and start that spring-cleaning!
The life we experience is designed to help us grow. My wish is that you learn from me as much as I learn from you. Share your life lessons and let's build together.
