Assertiveness Advice

Spring Cleaning Your Life 

At this time of the year Spring is in the air and there is hope for new beginnings. We are all familiar with the ‘D’ word: Detox, and everyone of us is getting ready to Spring clean our house.

To make the most of this Spring cleaning season here are 7 tips that I have tried myself successfully. They cover different areas and they are easy to put into action. Click to read/download.
