5 Ways to put a Spring in your Step

After the darkness of the winter months, the Spring sunshine is very welcome.  Everyone  has a spring in their step, grown men are humming Spice Girls songs and the very bravest of us have actually ventured out without a coat.  There is an energy in the season that needs to be harnessed and it's the perfect time to make changes.  Spring cleaning your lifestyle will create a balance that promotes a healthy mind and body.  Even the smallest of changes now will make a huge difference to your wellbeing.

1.  Spring clean your home

Clutter, is always your worst enemy, it plays with your mind and falling over a pile of old magazines does nothing for your physical health!  The warm weather should already be giving you more energy and the sunshine is probably showing up the dust in long forgotten places.  The change in the season is the perfect opportunity to get rid of all the fashion failures in your closet.  If you haven’t used or worn something in a year, it is safe to say you do not really need it - get rid - donate or dispose.  A clean and organised home will support you in every aspect of your life

Fresh fruits and vegetables are in season, Yaay!  Put away the take out menus and the winter comfort foods, natures finest foods are going to give you the energy to get out and enjoy the sunshine.  Eating a balanced and healthy diet will also build up your immune system ready for next winter.  Google for fresh and exciting recipes and have fun creating food fit for a goddess. 

3.  Embrace the sunshine

 4.  Set some goals

Most people make resolutions at New Year when its dark cold and miserable outside then wonder why they fail.  The smart people do it in the springtime when energy levels are high and the world is bathed in sunshine.  Pick realistic goals and document the steps that you will need to take in order to achieve this.
5.  Sort your relationships out

When was the last time you told your loved ones just how much you care?  Organise a family picnic, get your friends together for a long lazy lunch.  By some new underwear and serve your man his supper wearing only that.  Get rid of toxic relationships, the friends that take all your energy or a man who doesn’t treat you properly.  Your increased activities give you the perfect excuse not take phone calls and to phase out contact.  We are often a reflection of the people around us, so if you wnt to be happy, surround yourself with happy people ...
