Spring Cleaning || How and Why to Detox Your Digital Life

Spring Cleaning || How and Why to Detox Your Digital Life

Welcome to the third installment of my mini-spring cleaning series! (You can find the first post on detoxing your schedule here and the second post on detoxing your wardrobe here.) Although I don't consider myself a "neat freak" in any sense of the word, I do enjoy spring cleaning in the non-traditional sense. 

By the time April or May rolls around, most people are rolling up their sleeves, dusting the cobwebs from their ceilings, and sorting through their unused belongings. I, however, like to think of "spring cleaning" in a different sense. 

In this series, I tackle the less-often-purged parts of our lives, and today we are chatting about maybe the biggest one of all: our online life. Granted, "real life" is more immediate and therefore more important to cleanse regularly, but I would argue that our online presence is no less "real" and the interactions we encounter there can be just as positive or negative as our offline ones.

Spring Cleaning || Detox Your Wardrobe

Whether you're the capsule wardrobe building type or not, chances are you've spent some time this Spring downsizing (or wanting to downsize) your closet. I know the feeling of being overwhelmed by a cluttered closet and sometimes, after a long winter, a good, old fashioned Spring cleaning is just what your closet needs to whip back into shape. 

This spring, more than any other season, I've put a lot of work into curating the most cohesive, small, and practical wardrobe that I can; filled with pieces I truly love and wear often. However, that didn't happen overnight. Like most things, developing your style, even from season to season, takes effort and time. 

This "Spring Cleaning" series is all about uncommon areas to detox, and although your closet might be your go-to area to clean out, these tips may be ones you haven't thought of yet.

Spring Cleaning || Detox Your Schedule

Spring Cleaning || Detox Your Schedule

With the change of the seasons comes an inevitable change in mindset. Whether you're a big "spring cleaner" or not, there's something about the season that inspires change, detoxification, and a fresh, clean slate. In honor of spring and the boost in motivation that many of us feel, I'm planning to do a mini-series on nontypical ways to spring clean your life.

There are plenty of posts out there on physical things to declutter and lists of the places in your house that need a good scrubbing down every spring (hello, refrigerator). But the lists of the other areas in our lives that need a good de-cluttering are harder to come by. 

Today, I want to touch on decluttering our lives from busynessor more specifically, detoxing our schedules.
