It’s such an amazing feeling to wake up finally to some great weather, and see nature around us blooming again. The buds on the trees, the birds chirping, and sun shining is always lovely.
I’m the first to admit, I do not like the cold. I do like the 4 seasons, but as I get older, I am not a fan of the cold , unless I’m skiing, or its Christmas time. Other than that, that’s it for me. I wil not live in the Midwest 5 monthes out of the year once my kids are grown, which is right around the corner.
The winter can bog us down, and can zap our energy if we aren’t on top of our game. It’s so important to keep your exercising up, staying healthy in the winter months also, but I know for some of you, that can be hard. Well since spring is here, there are some great rituals that you can start, to get you into the vibe of spring.
– clean your home- do away with any and all chemical laden products. Stick to all natural products , and change everything. I recently went out and bought all new pillows for all the bedrooms, as well as new sheets. I know it’s crazy , but you need to change your pillows every 6 months. Dust mites live everywhere , and can cause horrible allergens. Try to stick to all green products. It’s best for your health , and your home.
-get into nature- now is the time to take walks, ride bikes, and get out into nature. Go on a walk on a trail you have never tried, or grab a friend and go for a long walk. It’s not only good for your body, but great for your mind.
-buy some flowers- this is my biggest splurge I would say. I do buy fresh flowers weekly. I do love the smell, look and the fact they are alive and beautiful inside my house. It makes everything much more vibrant.
-stay away from any and all negativity. I know I’ve said this so many times before, but you DO NOT need any of it in your life. Those people and or things are a drag. Stay around people who make you laugh and you enjoy to be around. Nothing is more fun in life than being around great people who love to have just as much fun as you do.
Always remember to live everyday like its your last, and try new things all the time. It makes you more youthful at heart!
