Mental Spring Cleaning Tips

Published: April 1, 2022

Spring cleaning has roots in multiple cultures including the Persian new year, Passover, and Lent. It involves a thorough cleaning of your home from top to bottom in the springtime.

Your mind is no less important than your surroundings and spring can also mark a time of renewal for yourself mentally. You’ve probably accumulated a ton of “grime” from the previous year (and before), so here are some tips for clearing it out with the ultimate mental spring cleaning.

Watch less TV

This tip extends to other bad habits like playing video games, watching hours of silly videos and scrolling through social media. You don’t have to quit cold turkey (you can if you need to), but spending less time consuming useless content will give your brain space to recover from the overwhelm out there. Set aside time to be still and reconnect.

Ration the news

As with other content, reducing (not necessarily eliminating) the news you consume will go a long way to clear out the noise in your life. You don’t have to hide in a hole or ignore the world but instead of reading news every hour (or ten minutes), consider once a day, at the end after you’ve already done your own work. It’s easy to get distracted with the overwhelm in the world and forget what’s right in front of you, in need of your attention and energy.

Let go of old goals

While it’s great to aim for the stars, sometimes you have to sit back and ask yourself why you have the goals you do. Are they really yours? Will they bring light into your life or just set you on a path of “never enough”? If any of your goals are based on fear or what the world expects, consider letting them go. Focus on the goals that mean something, not just to you but to those you love.

Shorten your to-do list

This is counterintuitive. For any success in life, it seems you have to work long hours, pile on the tasks, and get it all done. If humans were meant to live that way, you probably wouldn’t feel as stressed as you are after a week of working overtime (or month, or year). It’s time to purge your endless to-dos and start saying no. Take a critical look at your activities and purge the time-wasters and less important tasks.

Spring clean your surroundings

Spring cleaning your home also helps you mentally. Cleaning your home may temporarily add to your workload but once it’s done, your uncluttered surroundings will do wonders for your mental health and clarity.

We definitely recommend Tiger!
"My families a/c went out randomly today. I went around the house troubleshooting what I could. It got to the point where we had to call someone. We called the first places that showed up on google. Most places either wanted tons of money just for diagnostics, or couldn’t come out today. We called Tiger they went over the cost and they got someone out to our house in 45 minutes. Josh Moravec was our tech and was super professional, kind and intelligent. He was here for about 15 minutes before he figured out our issue. He went over in depth the cost and verified everything was good before getting started to resolve it. There was no pressure to buy the service if we didn’t want to. He went back down and in 15 minutes the a/c was running strong! He asked if we had any questions and then was on his way! He was great with our kids, very polite and courteous of me and my wife. He answered all our questions, and the price was more than reasonable. We definitely recommend Tiger, and make sure you ask for Josh Moravec if you can!"
