Springtime is generally a time for de-cluttering your home, but have you thought about de-cluttering your mind too?

Like many things in life, letting go of negative emotions and clearing your mind is easier said than done. With these tips and some practice, you will learn how to clear your mind in a way that works for you; and you may find that you are able to enjoy more of what life has to offer.

We’ll use creative methods to investigate what we need to get rid of and what may be holding us back; we can set clear goals for our future and build confidence and self-esteem and move forwards in a positive way.  Give it a go; you’ve got nothing to lose!
