It is that time of year again, when we are all stuck in the frustrating limbo between winter and spring. Every year, the gap between these two seasons seems to be getting longer and longer. This can be a very difficult period of time for people who live in colder climates. We have already been forced to endure the long, cold embrace of winter. Even though spring is in sight, many of us are impatient that the season is not arriving fast enough. It is important to remember that although it seems like spring will never arrive, it is in fact just around the corner so we need to be ready so we can get the most out of this wonderful season.
Here are four ways to help you transition into spring.
Make sure you are healthy: Spring is a very active time of the year. After being cooped up inside for most of the winter people are ready to get outside and be active. It is important you are healthy so you can enjoy this time of year as much as possible. Make sure to eat healthy, prioritize sleep and get plenty of exercise.
Wear brighter colours: Other then getting your body ready for spring, it is important to get your mind ready as well. Wearing brighter colours is a great way to get into the spring mindset. These bright colours can help you gain a more positive attitude and can even give you more energy.
Spring Cleaning: Another great way to become prepared for spring is to engage in spring cleaning. Eliminating the clutter from one’s home provides more living space and organization. It has also been shown to boost creativity and better one’s mood.
Come out of hibernation: the worst part about winter is the serious drop off in outdoor physical activity. We are forced to exercise in doors, longing for spring. When spring does arrive, it arrives quickly so there is very little time to waist. Shake off your winter hibernation by signing up for a new activity or class. Getting involved in organized sports or classes motivates us to get out of the house more than if we were to be active on our own.
Remember that spring as well as summer are very fleeting, so it is important to get out there and enjoy this time of year as much as possible.
