Spring to-do list
Winter is finally behind us, and we’re wasting no time in making our spring to-do list! Here are our top 5 activities for getting into the swing of things this April.
Buy a bunch of flowers
Nothing says spring like a fresh bunch of flowers! Not only do they look pretty, flowers can significantly improve our mood. Floral scents have the power to relieve stress and have a positive impact on our emotional health. Brighten up your day (or someone else’s) by making a quick stop at your local florist after work.
Picnic in the park
Head to the grocery store and stock up on fresh spring produce. Fruits and vegetables in season include apricots, mango, lychee, snow peas and asparagus. Add some mouth-watering berries to a simple salad (try mixing spinach, strawberries, red onion, blueberries and walnuts) to really let your taste buds know spring is finally here.
Declutter your closet
Out with the old, in with the new. None of us think twice about spring cleaning our homes, but it’s easy to forget that our wardrobes need some TLC too. Be ruthless and get rid of anything that you haven’t worn in over a year. Not sure about that dress you used to love? Try it on and see if still makes you feel great. Sorting out your wardrobe will save you precious time in the morning (less clutter = more quality) and clear your mind simultaneously.
Try a new exercise class
Get out of your comfort zone and try something invigorating. We embraced hot yoga this winter and we’re ready for a new challenge now the weather is finally warming up. Sign up for a boot camp programme with a friend or try something empowering such as kick-boxing to strengthen your upper body muscles and get a real sweat on.
Go visit a museum you’ve never been to, find interesting ways to photograph the city you live in or set some time aside for that book you’ve been meaning to read. If you’re more socially inclined, search for local events and festivals happening in your area.
