Whew! Well now that Christmas is over, it still seems like there is so much to do.
For me it’s time to cleanse the mind, body, soul, and let’s not forget the home. We all know that it can be hard to not get caught up in the commercialism that can surround Christmas. So this year while I crash cleanse my gut I’ll also be asking my children to cleanse their rooms of gently used toys that are no longer on the favorite list. The plan is to donate them to a nearby preschool and Goodwill.
Congruently, I’ve decided that there is no need to wait for the spring to purge the house of all the extras that clutter the house. Being relaxed has its pluses. And while I truly believe in not trying to be perfectly put together in any part of life, life is now under control enough to add a little more structure back in to our home. Organization time!
To cleanse my mind yoga will be making a big come back. Yoga is a life centering practice that made an appearance in my day-to-day way too late in life. With even only practicing once a week there are still great mental and physical health benefits. For those who have never practiced it’s almost like having the ability to hit pause on your mind and fast forward on your body through exertion of controlled movement. It is wonderful.
So I will be cleanse, cleanse, cleansing away. What will you be doing in the coming week or month?
