March is a time of year that often inspires a good spring clean! It tends to involve clearing unwanted items from the home/ garage/ wardrobe, reorganising personal space, and generally going a bit Marie Kondo… or for the green-fingered among us, perhaps creating a fresh and improved outdoor space. Whatever it is, once it’s done, the results often leave one with feelings of great satisfaction (and mild exhaustion).
I for one will probably embark on some sort of ‘spring clean’, or at least think about it!

In the midst of unpredictable and demanding working environments, I think it’s important to be reminded that before you can help others, you need to help yourself… And this is not something to be sniffed at or overlooked!
Here are 6 ideas to get you started with your pause and reset:
