The first day of spring is just a few days away. That glorious season where windows can once again be open and fresh air can bask any room giving it a clean feeling. Spring is also a season for new growth and beginnings. It’s an awesome time for renewal and rejuvenation of things once left behind.
Spring also denotes the perfect time of year to rekindle those new years resolutions we may have let slip over the past few months (ahem… comfort foods in lieu of the not so comforting temperatures of winter).
Here are 4 great tips on spring cleaning your life, sure to get you pointed back in the right direction.
- Open some windows – letting the breeze in your home not only re-humidifies the excessively dry air that’s been circulating from your ever on furnace. Additionally air flow is fantastic in reviving feng shui and stability within not only your house but your life.
- Get outside – the weather is clearing up and the days are beginning to stay lighter longer. What better opportunity to get out for that run, jog, walk that was once your new years resolution. Need some motivation? Sign up for a run/walk or 5K going on this year. What better motivation then knowing you have a goal to work toward.
- Eat more greens – The cold of winter air is fading as is dreading cold meals like salads and fruit. Say bu-bye comfort foods and hello to making fabulous salads and fruit combos stocked with fresh ingredients. Set your next few months up for success by planting a few staple vegetables in a garden or container box. Once that kale or spring beans or squash begin to grow you’ll be able to reap benefits of fresh healthy food all summer/fall long.
- Clean your house – Dust bunnies get out! Spring is the perfect motivation to deep clean those not so clean areas in our homes (aka windows, dusty shelves, salted kitchen floors and entryways). Not only will your house be gorgeous once again but you’ll also burn a ton of calories in the cleaning process! So scrub, scrub away!
These are just four of the many easy ways to incorporate health into the new approaching season. What other ways or goals do you set for yourself as Spring approaches? Share with us!
