Self-Care Ideas for Spring

White Blossom

Spring is nearly here providing you with an opportunity to change your self-care activities from the winter and adopt ideas for the new season.

Enjoy my favourite self-care ideas to try at home:

(1) Watch the Sunrise 

Try to get up just before the sun is about to rise, make your favourite drink, sit somewhere comfortable and enjoy those few moments of calm as you watch the new day begin.

I love this time of day, especially if I am the first one awake and the house is peaceful. It allows me to gather my thoughts, think about the day ahead and feel a sense of calmness for the busyness of the day begins.

How you start your day can set the tone for the rest of your day, so why not start one with the sunrise and see how great you feel. 

(2) Read in the Sunshine 

On a warmer spring day head outdoors with a book, a cosy blanket, your favourite drink and spend time in nature. This is a great way to boost your mood, lower your stress levels and increase your Vitamin D.

(3) Declutter

Spring is a great time to declutter your home and workspace – it can inject new energy into your space and make you feel more organised. If the task feels too great you could focus on one cupboard or wardrobe at a time. You can sort through your items, and decide whether to keep and organise them, or get rid of things either selling or donating them to charity.

As well as decluttering physical items you could also declutter your digital world, for example unsubscribing from newsletter emails that you never read can be very therapeutic and will save you so much time deleting them every month. You can enjoy more ideas and tips on this here.

(4) Exfoliate 

During the winter months your skin may become dull or dry due to the cold weather and the drying effects of the central heating. To give it a boost and a lovely spring glow exfoliating is a super spring activity to try. My personal favourite product is the  Rehydrating Rose Facial Polish from Neal’s Yard Remedies. 

If you try this product you only need to use it once or twice a week.  Apply to damp skin using an upward circular motion, taking care around the delicate eye area. Rinse thoroughly with warm water, then gently pat dry.

(5) Eat Seasonally 

Having a diet which is packed with seasonal produce is not only better for the planet, but is an easy way to boost your health and well-being as the items contain more nutrients than those which are out of season. 

You will also notice they taste better too – strawberries are available all year round in the supermarket, but those in the summer when they are in season are the greatest of all!

Seasonal foods for March include purple sprouting broccoli, spring lamb, sorrel, cauliflower and spring greens. For more seasonal food suggestions visit the BBC Good Food – What’s in Season Guide.

(6) Add More Movement 

With the new energy spring brings it is a great time to add more movement to your day. 

This could be scheduling a daily walk, joining the local gym, or trying out a new class. However, you add movement to your day do something that you enjoy, as you will be more likely to stick to it.

Adding more movement will help to lower your stress levels, increase your strength and bone density, help you to sleep better and boost your overall health.

Which ideas will you try?

I would love to hear from you and to learn how they have boosted your well-being.
