It’s that time of year when spring cleaning gets mentioned in articles and blog posts. There’s physical clutter to deal with along with all the corners, nooks and crannies that you’ve avoided or forgotten to clean.
There’s also emotional clutter that’s been storing up dust. There’s the conversation you know you need to have with your aging parent. There’s fear you’ve never dealt with from childhood that’s beginning to impact your relationships.
It can be overwhelming no matter what you’re planning on cleaning up this spring. But it doesn’t have to be. Starting with tiny steps can look like buying a new cleaning tool or searching for a therapist. I even found this Time.com post on, “9 Embarrassing Questions You’ve Always Wanted to Ask a Therapist,” that could motivate you to get started. And our top post this week asks you questions that can help you clean up old ways of thinking. Happy reading!
