Now that spring has arrived, it’s time for a refresh. With warmer weather comes more opportunities to seek adventure and enjoy the outdoors. Now that the winter blues are long gone, it’s time to bring new happiness and excitement to your routine. Here are some activities you can start now that are certain to help you achieve a more motivated, mindful and happier version of yourself.
Start a Garden
It wouldn’t be Spring without blooming flowers. Seeing a garden grow that you’ve planted with your own hands is one of the most rewarding and motivating things you can do. A budding plant means that with your care, you are now reaping the benefits of your planting project- a beautiful garden of Spring flowers for all to see.
Get Out Your Bicycle
If it’s a nice, sunny day, your bike is calling! It’s the perfect time to get some exercise and fresh air. The breeze and warmth of the sun will do wonders for your mental health, and you’ll return home with a crystal clear mindset.
Begin Spring Cleaning
During winter, we tend to hoard a lot. With items of comfort like blankets and an extensive outdoor wardrobe, it’s time to put away and purge some things we will no longer need for warmer weather. When your home is decluttered, it’s easier to feel happy and light. This refresh will do wonders for your mental health and you will feel happy and content.
Try a New Activity
Maybe you’ve always been intrigued by a Zumba or a dance class. Well, now is the perfect time to start something new! It’s a new season so why not engage in a new activity that you’ve always been curious about. Whether you end up loving it or realizing it isn’t for you, you’ve gained a new experience.
Decorate Your Space with Fresh Flowers
There’s nothing like fresh flowers in the Spring. If you’re not up for the challenge of planting your own, it’s always exciting to place fresh flowers in your home. They sit so beautifully in a vase, accenting your home and bringing that fresh, floral smell that reminds us all of the natural beauty of Spring.
Visit the Farmer’s Market
What could be better than fresh, farm grown produce AND supporting your local growers? If you guessed nothing, you’re right! Supporting the local farms and getting to enjoy fresh fruits and veggies is an experience you can’t miss out on this Spring. Many times, they are community events where you can socialize and meet many local businesses. Such a great opportunity to meet people in your town and learn more about local entrepreneurs.
Try a New Restaurant
While we’re on the topic of supporting local businesses, trying out a nearby restaurant is a great way to do so. It’s the perfect way to get out of the house, enjoy some food and socialization all while having a fun, new experience. Gather your friends or family and enjoy a nice meal together!
All of these activities are the perfect way to commence the start of Spring. It’s the much-needed refresh after a long, cold winter. Spring gives so many opportunities to enjoy fresh air, blooming flowers and all things new and light. Here’s to embarking on new adventures for a new season!
