Tips For A Healthy Spring


Spring is my favourite time of year!
Spring can be a really good time to reevaluate the year and that includes giving your health and wellness routines a once over, 
1. Reset Your Sleep Schedule

Winter is a time for hibernating. Unless you’ve got somewhere to be, the grey overcast days and too-cold-to-go-out weather can make it tempting to stay in bed as long as possible. By springtime, a lot of us are sleeping a lot later than we need to and that can be a hard habit to kick.
As spring approaches, one of the best wellness tips is to start waking up earlier. Even  it’s just 15 minute each day.  You’ll have so much more time to get your day started. You’ll also have more hours of daylight in general, freeing you up to read, exercise, relax with a cuppa and do whatever you please.
2. Get More Steps In

Now that the weather is warming up, it’s the perfect time to start walking more! Walking is the perfect low-impact exercise that boosts your cardiovascular health without leaving you sore and out of breath. Plus, it’s easy to fit in more steps every day, such as choosing the stairs or walking to nearby errands rather than driving.
3. Soak Up the Sun!
We had a VERY rainy winter this year with many cloudy days and it really affected mood for everyone Yes, I know that we need the rain but when it’s sunny outside, I’m a different person.
Spring sunshine is just the best as it’s not too warm and there are so many benefits to take advantage of 
Bright light exposure helps release serotonin in the body, which can boost your mood, it also helps the skin produce vitamin D, which is essential for bone health and other functions in the body!

4. Eat Lots of Fresh Produce

Winter can sabotage your diet efforts, with all its unhealthy comfort foods, baking, and the holidays of course. While these taste good, especially on a cold winter’s night, they can leave you feeling bloated and sluggish.
This spring, one of the best health tips to reverse the damage from winter is this: fill your plate with lots of fresh, seasonal produce. Your mind and body will thank you.

5. Stay Hydrated!

I know this is not new news to you! Every health coach says it. I think it’s one of the top pillars of a healthy body so along with lots of fresh fruit and veg making sure to stay hydrated is one of the best things we can all do.  You will notice a big difference in your skin and your energy levels
6. Clear the Clutter

Surrounding yourself with clutter and mess can wreak havoc on your health. A 2010 study found that women who described their living spaces as disorganized tended to have generally higher levels of the stress hormone cortisol. Meanwhile, those who characterized their homes as being restful and restorative were not only less stressed than their cluttered counterparts but also reported less sad feelings as the day went on.  Spring is a really good time to clear the clutter and freshen things up
7. Clear the mental clutter
Mental clutter can be just as bad as physical clutter. The mind-body connection is no longer up for debate. A happier you is a healthier you. Learn how to beat stress, depression, anxiety and more just by eating, sleeping and living well.  

Clear mental clutter so you can welcome peace and calm back into your life. Without this brain clutter, you will become a more productive, happier and all-round healthier soul.  
Try concentrating on one thing at a time. Finish it, take a break, then move on
