Been There


Spring is just around the corner. Find out how we are rejuvenating our lives with the new season.


The Persian New Year (Nowruz) falls on the first day of Spring and it’s a tradition in our culture to do extensive spring cleaning, buy flowers for your home, and visit family members. This year, I plan to buy new plants and move into my new apartment at the end of the March as a symbol to rid past clutter and start the new year fresh.


I’m applying the Marie Kondo method to my life… in a loosely interpreted manner. Spring cleaning and organization will be a part of it, but why stop there? I will be evaluating everything in my life — habits, thoughts, even people — to see what really sparks joy in order to understand what I need more of and what I need to dial down on.


My lease ends in April and I’ll be moving apartments, so spring cleaning will be even more necessary to me this year. The last time I moved, I was in a massive hurry, so I packed everything up without giving much thought to all the clutter I was bringing with me. I’m excited to take some time to really look at everything I own and figure out if it’s adding value to my life.
