If you have slackened off your New Year's Resolutions, luckily you get a big boost: March begins the Motivational New Year and you are likely to succeed now. The timing is right because the angle of light and the subtle cues of spring are in the air. There is no seasonal affective disorder to contend with. I look outside my office window and no longer see the Tundra in my Long Island backyard. The grass isn't green, but at least it's visible. Nature's rhythm is energizing and I can feel the difference in the way my dog walks me.
Tap into this vibrant energy and transfer it to your living space. Clean out the clutter; dust the cobwebs; open the windows and rejuvenate your living space. Think of your home as a barometer of personal balance, reflecting the state of your mind and heart. Is your living space a place where you feel stuck with stale energy? Dress your home for emotional success and you will be able to eliminate excuses, complaints and regrets.
Here are 3 questions I use every March to help make a fresh start.
* Can I let go of those things I have inherited from family, living or dead which I feel obligated to keep? Instead, can I take photographs to remember these items? Am I willing to release old baggage to focus on the essentials and be more selective?
* Do I collect objects to show off who I am, like books I never read, or do I utilize what I possess?
* Can I identify a pattern to my clutter? What am I always buying and why? Am I trying to complete myself with this stuff?
