March will be amazing bannerSpring is in the air! Yes, along with the pollen and the inevitable snowstorm yet to grace our gardens - but it is out there ready to bloom. There is something about March and the ushering in of a new season that gives me renewed motivation.  

Spring summons our emergence from winter hibernation. Usually, that’s only a few months but this season it feels like we’re coming out of a long COVID-19 winter nap that just happened to have had a warm spell called Summer.  It was almost a year ago when the virus hit and we went into lockdown mode. Now, like mother nature’s clockwork, we’re finally seeing fewer cases, a release of restrictions, wider vaccinations, and people are wiping the cobwebs from the door frame ready to greet the world again.  

The problem is sometimes we miss a step that can be hugely beneficial to our wellness when we go through a transition of seasons like this one: A good ole fashion Spring cleaning.

Just like we can keep a bit of Christmas hanging around the house a little too long past the new year, we have a tendency to carry old feelings into new experiences and seasons.

When we do this season after season, we can get bogged down by defeat and regret. Then we have a real mess of heavy build-up on our hands. Emotionally and physically ‘winter’ has been hard.  As we move out of this pandemic frost, try to clear the clutter of disappointment and year-long loss. Wipe the slate clean from unmet well-intentioned expectations. Drop that baggage in the dumpster. Don’t look back. Forge ahead into March with a revitalized sense of energy and commitment to your wellness.
