Learning to focus on that which best serves
New life and reflection
Spring is a beautiful time of growth, inward focus, new life and reflection. There’s a reason we often participate in spring cleaning—the harsh winter is behind us. With the sun and sprouting life comes the desire for a fresh, clean start. With this new start, we allow ourselves the optimum opportunity and setting to enjoy the welcomed season.
Spring also allows us to reflect on so many areas of our life. If we are wise, we can use this time to look inward and do a self-spring clean. We can rid ourselves of the habits, attitudes and relationships that are as harsh or unwelcome as the desolation of winter. By turning our focus to the important and beautiful things in life, we can naturally complete a spring cleaning. This spring cleaning will then leave only positive thoughts, people and experiences.
Inward focus, outward changes
When we think of focus, we may initially think of being told to focus in school or willing ourselves to have laser focus when completing a task that needs full attention. What we may find though, is that focus can be a powerful tool to manifesting our greatest desires and serving as the vehicle on which we can solve some troublesome situations.
As we learned last month in our issue, EXPLORING THE EGO, though, focusing inward is important. However, inward focus is not the be all, end all. In fact, by turning our focus outward, we may better be able to identify moments of need. By understanding the outside, we can better understand moments where we might bring something useful to the world around us.
In this month’s issue, FOCUS, we share articles on how to home in on the things that most need attention. We delve into the art of focusing on what we want and don’t want. We also discuss the importance of focus in our professional and family life. Whether finances, relationships, or understanding how multitasking can help or hinder your mental health, refocusing can help. Let’s get to work on that inward focus and get back on track as we ride the high of the Spring energy coming our way!
