I enjoy the benefits of spring-cleaning every season.

The clutter of life can build quickly. While others wait for a particular time of season, I remain proactive. Every few months, I eliminate the excess and the unnecessary. I donate unused items and toss out the rubbish.

For me, spring-cleaning is a continuous, year round performance.

Spring-cleaning extends beyond the boundaries of my home. I practice it at work and in life. I minimize the unneeded. Preemptively, I keep my paperwork organized and up-to-date. Keeping my workspace tidy and in order reduces my stress level and improves my sense of clarity.

The physical tidiness of my life reflects the order I feel within.

Time management and scheduling are easy. I can be depended upon to meet deadlines. I am successful in each task I undertake because I am systematic and structured in my work ethic.

My high level of organization is noticed by others. Because I refuse to let the clutter build, I avoid being buried beneath it. Small acts of tidying are more manageable and less time consuming. I share this knowledge with others, hoping to positively impact their lives.

I commit to the constant act of cleaning in all aspects of my life. I feel relief knowing that when spring comes, I have avoided letting a year’s worth of disorder mount.

Today, I plan to identify an area of life that needs cleaning and organization. I must continue to be proactive in my efforts to remain organized.

Self-Reflection Questions:

1. What areas of my life are the most difficult to keep organized?
2. When I perform cleaning, what types of things do I most commonly dispose of?
3. How can I help others be proactive with uncluttering their lives?
