It’s my favorite season! The spring season mood is finally setting in. Besides pollen allergies, I love absolutely everything about the springtime. The flowers are blooming, the birds are chirping and the sun is shining. What else could I ask for?
However, coming out of the winter is extremely hard for me every year. If you’re stuck in a winter mentality, it won’t really feel like spring. So that is why I am writing this post on how you can put a spring in your step!
Here are 5 ways I put the spring in my step:
1. Wear Colorful Clothes
-The way you dress has a huge impact on your attitude
-Springy prints and colors can have a more positive affect on your mood than darker colors
-If you are wearing bright and cheery colors, you will better reflect these colors
-Feel confident in your colorful outfits
-Looking great can help you feel great, which can lead to better performance overall
2. Explore the Outdoors- Spring Season Mood
-As it’s warming up, step outside
-Go for a hike or even take a walk after dinner
-Even just a ten minute walk will flood your brain with happy neurotransmitters and endorphins
-Get into the sun and grab some Vitamin D
-Exercise combined with sunshine will improve your mood and clear your mind
-Name a better duo than exercise and sunshine…I’ll wait.
3. Grab Some Flowers
-Flowers boost your mood
-Both the aroma and the pleasing aesthetic make flowers a perfect gift to yourself and your home
-As they’re blooming outdoors, why not have some blooming in your house?
-They add a nice touch to any room!
4. Spring Cleaning
-Clean out old things and make room for the new
-Spring is a considered to be a time of rebirth, so donating or selling some of your belongings can make space for new
-Do little by little! It doesn’t need to be done all in one day
-The accomplished and refreshing feeling at the end is SO worth it
5. Try Something New
-Have you been wanting to try something different and “haven’t had the time to?”
-Now is the time to MAKE time!
-Try a new activity, like a yoga or a barre class
-Yoga or barre are benefiting you physically, mentally and spiritually
-Try a different foods
-A restaurant you have never been to or a recipe you have been wanting to make
