How to Have a Healthier Spring
When spring is in the air, it’s just the fresh start you need. If you’ve fallen off your path of resolutions for the new year, it’s the perfect time to reset and get back to taking care of your health.
So, what can you do to make your spring a healthier one? Here are some tips!
Balance your diet
With all these fresh, seasonal foods available, start putting more of them onto your plate. Go for unprocessed items that are nourishing and healthy. Reduce your sugar intake and keep healthy snacks readily available so you make smart choices. This won’t just be beneficial for your waistline and your exercise efforts but also for your other systems that need to be in good health too.
Take time to unwind
Some people, especially moms, feel selfish for taking time to themselves. There’s nothing selfish about replenishing your energy and recharging your spirit. Everyone has different ways of unwinding, and while you might not have time for all of them every day, you should find ways to let yourself reset mentally. One thing that will surely help both your mind and body is a deep tissue massage.
Go on a digital detox
Technology is definitely a beautiful thing, but there is such a thing as overload. If you’re always on your laptop for work and then stare at your phone or TV the remainder of the day, you should take a digital detox. Spend time with the kids playing board games, making crafts, or playing a game of make believe. Find a hobby or sport with neighbors to do instead of relying on technology as entertainment. Remember the days when we didn’t have internet or smartphones? Try to go back to that for at least a few hours each week.
Give your fitness routine a good spring makeover
Now that the weather is warmer for spring, use this to your advantage to have refreshed workouts. Running outdoors is always a great option since the weather is so pleasant and there’s no more ice to get in your way. Take the bike out of the garage and go for a ride, or take a swim if you can.
