The sun is shining, the flowers are blossoming — spring is well and truly here! As it’s a season of new beginnings, it’s the perfect time to make some small, positive changes to your life. Here are five simple ways to put a spring in your step and make the most of the new season.
1. Spring Clean
Although it’s cliché for this time of the year, having a clear out is incredibly beneficial. Spring is a great time to get rid of old clothes and items you no longer need. You don’t have to sort through everything in one session — tackle one room at a time so that you don’t get overwhelmed. A good strategy is to organise everything into three piles — one for things you’ll throw away, one for things you’re going to sell and another for things you’re giving to charity. Once you’re done, you will feel so refreshed and focused.
2. Get Outside
Fresh air and sunshine does the soul good, so why not get outside and make the most of the weather? A great place to start is to go for a short walk whenever you can. Not only is walking good for your body, but the endorphins it releases will uplift your mood too. Every now and then, you could even leave your phone behind to allow yourself to fully disconnect. That way, you’ll be able to appreciate the little things in life more.
3. Try Something New
Is there a craft or language you’ve always wanted to learn? Maybe there’s a city that you’ve been yearning to visit for ages. Whatever it is — go for it! Now’s the time to embrace change and try something new. Sometimes we can find ourselves stuck in a routine, so switching it up can help boost your confidence and bring some added joy to your life. It doesn’t have to be something huge — even creating one of the many DIYs you’ve saved on Pinterest can put a little extra pep in your step.
4. Change up Your Style
When it comes to style, it’s way too easy to stick to the outfits we’re most comfortable with and wear them over and over again. This spring, why not jazz up your style by “shopping your wardrobe” and experimenting with new ways to combine the clothes you already own. That way, you can create whole new looks without spending any money at all. You could try out different colour combinations, textures and patterns. Remember to have fun with it!
5. Eat Well
Many delicious fruit and veg come into season at this time of the year, including blueberries, peaches, strawberries, kale, beets and spinach. So, adding more colour to your plate is a very good idea. An easy way to incorporate more healthy foods into your diet is to make smoothies. They’re delicious, packed full of nutrients and quick to make! Eating nutritious food that nourishes your body will definitely give you a massive boost.
