March is the time for spring cleaning: when you switch the pillows, turn over the mattress, and thoroughly clean your shower. It’s that wonderful time of the year to review what needs to be removed and reorganize what should stay. However, this challenge is not only about tidying up your house; it’s about rejuvenating your life. “Detox” and “cleanse” are trendy terms commonly linked to diets, but we aim to redefine those words to focus less on juicing and more on their original meanings: eliminating anything not beneficial to you and replacing it with alternatives that promote your well-being.

Cleansing your life involves purging the habits, routines, and clutter that hinder your well-being; it’s equally important to replenish with things that bring you joy, health, and fulfillment. The goal of this cleanse is to understand how your daily routines and surroundings influence you, so you can create space for your optimal life. Throughout March, each day you’ll be encouraged to simplify, cleanse, de-stress, and declutter your home, finances, mind, body, and soul, bringing you closer to your happiest self by summer. Happy spring cleaning!
