20+ ways to reset your mind, body + soul.

Spring cleaning, autumn reset, taking care of your mind body and soul. Lisa Buscomb

I've put together a list for all the things I'd love to do this month to reset my mind body and soul. It’s like fresh sheets on your bed, it always feels so good once it’s done.

 

I'm sharing them here for you, so you too can be organised, relaxed and organised for the cold months ahead.

🖤Pump up the music in your home to get a super quick but super effective leg workout done (3 x 15 squats, 3 x 15 lunges, 3 x 15 step ups)

🖤Have a look at your wardrobe and ask yourself “have I worn this in the past 12 months?’. If the answer is no, its time to bid farewell and re gift to your local charity shop.

🖤’Being myself involves no risks. It is my ultimate truth and I live it fearlessly’ Wayne W Dyer. Be your own best friend, write a love letter. Keep it by your beside and read it whenever you’re having a down day.

🖤Exfoliating our skin has a massive psychological effect by removing all the stress in our lives. Try a natural toxin free scrub and enjoy the quiet moment.

🖤Sit by yourself and think about your personal goals. Where would you like to see yourself in 3, 6 and 12 months? Write down your goals where you can see them, or better yet, use your creativity and create a vision board (check out my blog for a how-to on creating a beautiful vision board)

🖤Disconnect from technology for a day and reconnect with each other.

🖤Show your fridge and freezer some love by clearing out and cleaning out any expired foods. Make a spray mix of 1 Tbsp bicarb soda, 1 Tbsp vinegar, and fill with water. Spray and wipe clean before filing with fresh foods.

🖤Plan time at the end of the day for a bath or foot soak. Light some candles, play some relaxation music and wash your worries away. Add natural bath oil or 1 cup of Epsom salts with a few drops of your favourite essential oil, for something extra special.

🖤Write a list of all the things that are creating stress in your life. When we pinpoint these stressors, it allows us to identify and acknowledge them; and create an action plan of next steps

🖤Connect with a loved one via physical connection or IRL, or with a phone call or handwritten note

🖤Start cleaning out some drawers around your home. There are too many to tackle in one day so start with a bedroom and then move onto another room next time

🖤Keep a pretty notebook and pen beside your bed.  Start each day with a grateful heart by writing 10 things you are thankful for.

🖤We all know that drinking 2L of water a day is essential for flushing our system and hydrating our cells, but do we always achieve it?  Make a conscious effort to hit the mark today.

🖤Clear out all old magazines, books and unused toys, and donate to your local kindy.  Tip: keep a basket in your house and add unwanted items through-out the month, making this a monthly ritual.

🖤Tidy the kitchen cupboards that are often overloaded.  Sort, clean and tidy each shelf.  Low tox tip: switch out plastics for recycled glassware or stainless steel

🖤Take 15 minutes in a quiet spot to meditate or breathe deeply.  Let your thoughts run free and focus on the inward and outward breath of life.

🖤Find 5 minutes to dump out your wallet, purse or handbag.  Bin the unnecessary, give it a good wipe out and refill with your fave essentials.

🖤Connect your soul with nature.  Sink your feet into soil, sand or grass and re-energise your body.  Marvel in mother natures magic through your senses.

🖤Strip your bed and refresh your mattress.  Combine 5 Tbsp of baking soda with 5 drops of lavender essential oil.  Sieve and sprinkle over mattress.  Leave for an hour then vacuum off. Fresh and ready for a beautiful sleep.

🖤Put your headphones in, turn the music up, and hit the road.  Enjoy a 30 minute run or walk, and thank your legs for supporting you.

🖤‘I feel no guilt when I say NO to someone’ Brian L Weiss.  Life is busy enough without you overcommitting yourself.  Honour your time and your commitments by saying no to the things that don’t serve you.
