As the sun shines a little longer and the chill of winter begins to fade, many find that spring is the perfect time to re-organize their lives. Whether re-arranging your closet, tossing out unwanted household items or filing away important financial documents, now is the time to reset and declutter your life!
Household safety is especially important when it comes to seniors, who unfortunately experience many of their injuries within the home. Factors like declining vision, hearing loss and worsening bone density make injuries from minor trips and falls more likely.
With the warmer weather here to stay, many of us are hankering to spend our time outside -- not at the grocery store or slaving away at the stove.
It's easy to think of all the good habits we wish we had. And, as it turns out, setting good habits can be a powerful way to achieve our goals, as well as keep us focused and organized. Once a good habit becomes etched in our brain, we're able to attain our objectives without even thinking about it.
As you continue to spring clean your home, I encourage you to ask your kids to help. Yes, I realize that most children will not be eager to jump in and help mom or dad clean the house, but getting your kids involved not only lessens your cleaning load, but it teaches children the value of having a clean and organized home.
Cleaning out the cupboards, taking stock of items that need to be retired or repaired, and outright purging in some cases, is often what is done as the weather changes. And while it's common to want to get your house in order, it's not so common to do the same with your finances.
When we hear the word 'spring-cleaning', your office isn't exactly what we expect to come next, although it should. Spring is the perfect time to polish up your work space and place; giving yourself and your organization a clean slate to get your affairs in order and focus on the company's goals, image and business relationships for a successful year ahead.
