There is an Indian Belief that we are all houses which contain four rooms*: These rooms are all the same size and are identified as being, physical, mental, emotional and spiritual.
For many of us, we tend to reside in one, maybe two rooms for the majority of our day, week, year and life. However, the very act of ignoring or avoiding a room, can leaves us feeling empty and unfulfilled. Unless we devote time in all rooms each and every day even if only for a moment, we will slowly begin to realise that we are not complete. With the onset of Spring and the energy it brings, perhaps it’s time to ‘visit’ each room and spring clean your life!
Try to work through some of our suggestions at first and then come up with your own ideas!
1. SPRING CLEAN YOUR PHYSICAL
2. SPRING CLEAN YOUR MENTAL
3. SPRING CLEAN YOUR EMOTIONAL
4. SPRING CLEAN YOUR SPIRITUAL
Spending time in each room, will help you gain a greater perspective and bring more balance to your life. Yes, there will always be times when your work - life balance is way off centre. Invariably we will compensate with weekends and holidays, assuring ourselves that this is a temporary blip and normal service will be resumed shortly. Be aware, that this same pattern can be mirrored with our eating, drinking and exercise habits. As life speeds up and stress levels rise, our habits can change for the worse, binge drinking, yo-yo dieting and falling off the exercise wagon are common occurrences.
Finding and maintaining balance may often appear elusive, yet we can work towards that goal, every moment of every day. Remember that we stay in balance best by taking care of the mental, physical, emotional and spiritual aspects of our self. Once established, balance will give you precious time; time with family and friends, time alone, time to work, time to play, and time to live the life you want to live.
Here’s to your best year ever!
