The weather is getting warmer and the flowers are starting to bloom. That’s right, it’s finally spring. A lot of us don’t feel like ourselves during the cold and harsh winter season. But when it starts to warmer, we feel a little more energized and ready to take on the world. Well, let’s use that boost of motivation to have a happy spring, full of good health.
Speaking of nice weather, it’s time to start going outside more often. The long days of sitting inside, bundled up with your sweats and blankets are behind you. Start substituting your inside activities with outside ones. Instead of going to the gym, try exercising outside. Go outside for lunch (or have a picnic) instead of going out to eat. Not only is going outside good for your physical health, but the boost to your endorphins will help your mental health too.
Eat Fresh Fruits and Vegetables:
Spring is a great chance to get some fresh and healthy foods into your diet. Strawberries, rhubarb, mangos, broccoli, green beans, potatoes, and many other fruits and vegetables are now in season. Find ways to start incorporating them into your meals. You could even look into starting your own garden with your family for some extra fun. Who doesn’t love a good excuse to be outside with your loved ones?
Get Away from your Screens:
This goes hand in hand with going outside. With the weather being warmer and nicer, it’s time to get off your screens. Put your phone away, turn off the television, and find some extra excuses to be outside doing something else. Your mental health will thank you later.
Update your Medicine Cabinet:
While spring is a beautiful season, for some, it can be a nightmare for allergies. With all the flowers blooming, a lot of pollen is released into the air, making it incredibly difficult for those with harsh seasonal allergies. So make sure you update your medicine cabinet with decongestants and other allergy relief medicines before spring is in full force. The sooner you start taking your allergy relief medicine, the less likely they will be to cause problems throughout spring.
Soak up the Sun:
You’re probably thinking, “How many times are they going to tell me to go outside?” Well, the answer is a lot. Being exposed to sunlight is great for your mental health and provides a ton of vitamin d. The sun is great; your mental health will appreciate being exposed to it more often but don’t forget to take care of your physical health too. Nobody thinks about the sun burning them in the spring, but it’s just as dangerous as it is in the summer. If you’re going to be exposed to the sun for an extended period of time, make sure you put on some sunscreen.
