Would you keep a 20 year old piece of cheese in your fridge just as it is? You might think Swarnam has gone nuts and in all probability, your answer would be a no. Similarly it would be very helpful if we let go decades old thoughts and beliefs, it will help us turn a new leaf in our lives.


According to Dr Stocchi of Harley Street Psychology, we should challenge outdated beliefs and replace them with newer, more positive ones. People blossom once they have done this. They lose excess weight, improve their diets, have more energy for exercise, their aches and pains just vanish and they literally turn their lives around.


Dominic Knight the man behind the app 14 seconds and who is also an author says if you cut your finger you would put a bandage on it. You won’t simply go on cutting your finger. In the same way if you have a negative experience you just close the door on it. You should never refer back to it and live your life by what your teachers, classmates and parents once said.


Well, spring cleaning the mind has its own benefits. In this post we are going to see how to spring clean our relationships in order to cherish and nourish them.  A study whose main aim was to find out what contributed to the quality of a marriage relationship found that, when wives are doing housework along with their husbands, they were more satisfied with the division of labor. The data show that fathers must make any two household works permanent in their to-do list.


Another important factor which strengthened the marital bond was the quality of the father’s relationship with the kids. The researchers point out those little things such as reading a story to the kids and inquiring about the day can go a long way in strengthening the bonds. Now let us see how to enrich our relationship with the kids.


A study found that frequent family suppers contributed to good mental health in adolescents. These family suppers lead to fewer emotional and behavioral problems, greater emotional well-being, more trusting and helpful towards others and higher life satisfaction among young people.

As a health blogger, I would advise you even to exercise as a family. Science has found that physical activity has positive effects on the body weight and structure. This leads to positive feedback and improved self-image. Sharing, caring and spending quality time together as a family ensures that the relationships are spring cleaned and are shiny and sparkling, brimming with positivity, happiness and togetherness.

Take care,

Swarnam
