How To Spring Clean Your Life In 24 Hours
Spring is the perfect time to Spring Clean and refresh your home. However, it is also the best time to clear out your mind and create new routines in your life. By having a clear out mentally as well as physically, it can help you to think straight and to feel more revitalised.
Today I would like to share with you some powerful strategies to get you well on your way to Spring Cleaning your life in 24 hours.
Spring clean your technology
Every couple of months or so, I always take the time to clear out my email inbox and unsubscribe to any spam emails. This is important because I receive less sales emails, therefore I am not tempted to splash out on things that I don’t need to buy.
Start by sorting through the apps on your phone and delete the ones that you don’t use, in order to create more memory space on your phone. Delete any unneccessary photos and notes on your phone to create some free memory space, as well as files and documents on my computer that you don’t use anymore. This helps me to think more clearly and prioritise or respond to emails that I might have missed before when my inbox was cluttered.
Create a skin care routine
To create a skin care routine, you should first determine your skin type. The type of skin you have depends on how much water and oil there is in your skin. By using products that are suitable for your skin type, your skin will be in an overall better condition.
For example, skin care products that are designed for oily skin will be oil free. They may also have ingredients that are designed to help rebalance the level of oil in your skin. You should create a pattern of using cleanser, exfoliator and moisturiser etc, and keep up with your routine every day. I guarantee that you will see a difference in your skin. It might even make you sleep better at night!
Deep clean your make up brushes and clear out old make-up
Dirty make-up brushes are a haven for bacteria and they can irritate your skin badly. You should make sure to clean them regularly to prevent acne and any skin problems.
You should replace your mascara every 3 months and your foundation and eyeliner at least once a year. By getting rid of make up products that you don’t use any more and that may have expired, it will make a lot more space for your holy grain beauty products!
Take a digital detox
Even the simplest things like putting your phone down and going for a walk outside to take in the fresh air can make you feel better and get you on your way to spring cleaning your life.
Take some time away from social media. Remember that the people you see online only show you the certain snippets of their lives that they want you to see.
Let go of the people that weigh you down
Take the time to evaluate all of the friendships and relationships in your life. If someone is repeatedly getting you down, cut all contact with them! Life is too short to let toxic people get in your way.
Set yourself a budget
This is a very important step. Budgeting allows you to create a speading plan for your money and it also ensures that you have put the money aside for your life essentials.
If you create a detailed plan of your incoming and outgoing money, you can keep a budget aside for necessities such as bills, food and rent. There is never a better time to begin budgeting than now.

Create a fitness routine
Starting a fitness routine can be one of the best things you can do for yourself. Exercise releases endorphins which cause your brain to feel happy – and at the same time you are getting fit! You can start going for jogs, join a gym or even take up a hobby like yoga.
