Believe it or not, spring is right around the corner. While the snow may be lingering, we’re preparing for that sweet sense of renewal that comes with the start of the spring season.
With spring comes a focus on cleaning. Well, this blog post won’t tell you to dust your ceiling fan or degrease your oven. It will, however, give you five tips on how to spring clean your life for a fresh start!
At Hustle + Charm, we’re HUGE fans of regular goal-setting. Figure out a system that works for you (here are six tips for goal-setting for your business) and make sure to set SMART goals for the best results.
If you’re stuck or don’t know where to start, why not create a vision board? Vision boards are a visual (and tangible) representation of your goals. All you need are a few supplies and a dash of creativity! We’ve compiled tips on how to harness the power of visualization to make a solid vision board.
As a busy woman, you likely wear many hats. The gift of time back cannot be overstated! Plus, by saving time, you can enjoy more activities that bring you joy and help you relax.
One of the easiest ways to manage your time? Schedule tasks into your calendar and remove all distractions during that time so you can stay focused. Check out the Pomodoro Technique.
We’re also fans of list-making to help us stay organized. Possible lists could include tasks you need to complete, emails you need to respond to or errands you need to run that day. There’s nothing quite as satisfying as checking off items as you complete them!
Here are 10 of our favourite time-saving tips to help you streamline your day even more.
Here’s where your goal-setting comes into play! Look at your goals and consider new habits that will help you reach them. For example:
Simplify your diet with whole, nutrient-rich foods and balanced meals.
Building a solid nighttime routine is so important, we wrote a whole blog post about it! A new morning routine can also help you kick off your day on a good note.
Replace a stale fitness routine with something that will make you excited to move your body.
Take stock of your current skincare routine and adjust it for the spring, indulging in treats like face masks and gua sha to help you feel your best.
Create or tweak a budgeting system to ensure you stay on top of your finances and related goals.
Whether you use social media for business or pleasure (or both), now’s the perfect time to comb through and clean up your accounts. Your social media channels are a representation of you and/or your brand, so it’s important to keep things up-to-date. Unfollow any accounts that no longer resonate with or inspire you, or even unplug for a few days and enjoy some screen-free time.
You can also use the opportunity to declutter your inbox and unsubscribe from newsletters you don’t read and/or enjoy.
Spring-cleaning your life and habits will ensure you enter the season on a good note and are ready to tackle the coming summer.
We saved what we think is the hardest task for last! Reevaluate the relationships (romantic, friendly or business) in your life, as well as your existing commitments. Are you still passionate about them? Do they bring you joy? You may need to ask yourself some tough questions to determine where to invest your time and energy going forward.
