I know this is the one you expect this time of year, but decluttering your living space and giving it a good deep clean can change the entire feel of your home. Renewing your sacred space can rejuvenate you in many ways, bringing a lighter, happy feeling as the sunshine rolls in with Spring. So tuck away all those Winter clothes, give your living space a refresh and start Spring on a clean foot.
Clean Up Your Fitness Routine!
Have you been doing the same old fitness routine all Winter? It can get monotonous, not just for you but for your muscles that get used to it, too. It's Spring! Shake things up! See how a new class feels, doing a new workout video you’ve never tried, or jogging down a new trail. Satisfy your craving for the feel of sunshine and get outdoors! Your body will thank you :)
Disconnect To Reconnect!
When you aren't at work, take time off from as much technology as possible. Use the time to connect with people face-to-face -- meet your friends for lunch, read a book, explore a new area, or do anything that keeps you from continually being glued to a screen. You’ll feel loads happier when you do.
Even if you start with a set amount of screen-free hours per day, you'll be making a huge difference in your relationships and happiness levels.
This is a perfect time of year to 'Spring Clean' what is on your plate.
Spring is a time of renewal - both in nature and for our health.
Take notice of how you feel on a daily basis, are you feeling energized? Sluggish? Exhausted by 4 pm?
Your food choices have a huge impact on how you feel. If sluggish is more normal than energized for you -- start by incorporating more whole foods into your daily routine. Phase out the processed foods one by one, replacing them with healthier options.
I'm a big fan of eating with the seasons and this one habit alone goes a long way in supporting your body's natural cleansing process. I've come to realize firsthand just how significantly we're affected by what we put into our bodies at different times of the year. Wondering what foods are ideal for Spring?
