Spring is finally here and the burden of another cold, snowy winter is behind us. You’re not alone if you immediately felt a positive shift in your mood on the first warm day of March. If you want to utilize this natural mood and energy boost to get more stuff done and celebrate, try some productive and relaxing activities. Keep your happiness up with some of these refreshing ways to welcome spring.
Start an Outdoor Workout Routine
Everyone makes New Year’s resolutions to start working out and then they quit after January. Maybe it’s because January is a terrible month to motivate yourself to start anything. March and April are better times to start a new routine because you have the energy to tackle any challenge—even a running or jogging routine.
Whenever you start a new exercise routine, go easy on yourself. It may take you months to reach goals that you may consider average in difficulty—and that’s perfectly normal. Strive to improve a little bit each day.
Update Your Wardrobe
The end of winter means that it’s time to stow away the bulky, heavy layers and switch over to your spring wardrobe. Shop for brand-new spring clothes to ring in the warm seasons and treat yourself after a hard winter. If you’re happy with the way you look and the clothes you wear, you’ll have the confidence to keep the spring mood going all the way through the summer. Try something new this spring—a new trend, a new color, or an old trend that you never got to try.
Plant Some Flowers
If you want to add color to your interior design and revitalizing scents into your home or garden, plant some flowers in a container or a backyard garden. Make sure to pick the right location for the flowers you choose to plant—don’t place a shade-loving flower in the sunniest spot of the yard.
Raising your favorite kinds of flowers is one of the most refreshing ways to welcome spring. You’ll feel proud of yourself once your flowers are fully grown and you’ll have something beautiful to look at once they bloom.
