5 Wellness Rituals for Spring

The Spring season brings with it a sense of renewal and fresh starts. As opposed to the beginning of the year when people are making their resolutions and trying to “start over”, many people actually find that it is when spring arrives that they truly feel like their year has begun.

This is also the perfect time to focus on your health and wellness, as you will feel ready to start fresh with your wellness as well. There are 5 wellness rituals we think you will absolutely love this time of year.

1. Switch to Seasonal Eating and Refreshing Recipes

Your wellness all starts inside your body, so what you consume can really make such a big difference. Spring is a great time to eat more in-season produce, consume fresh and healthy recipes, and drink more water.

Seasonal eating is a great way to make use of in-season produce that is less expensive and fresher, plu sit allows you to keep trying new things every season. For Spring, include produce like strawberries, artichoke, beans, leafy greens, asparagus, and rhubarb.

2. Focus on Lighter Workouts, Preferably Outdoors

Spring is also a great time to focus on your exercise, but make some slight adjustments to it. It is the time for lighter workouts, and ones that you are able to do outside whenever possible.

This is a great time to choose some lighter workouts, such as yoga and Pilates, stretching, going for walks, or simple weight training. 

If you want to take your exercise outdoors, which is highly recommended in the spring, this might include hiking, cycling, swimming, or playing sports with friends.

3. Make Your Emotional and Mental Wellbeing a Priority

When it comes to your wellness, don’t forget about your emotional and mental health. This is just as important as your physical health and wellbeing. 

Here are some different activities you can add to your wellness rituals this season that will help with your emotional and mental health:

  • Write in a journal
  • Be mindful and present
  • Meditate
  • Do a digital detox
  • Spend a few minutes out in nature

4. Adjust Your Home Environment for the Season

The environment in which you live and spend most of your time is also so important when it comes to your wellness and wellbeing! Make sure you have a clean space that is well organized and free of unnecessary clutter. This doesn’t mean you have to live in a simplistic, minimal home, but one that makes you happy and free of stress when you walk into it. 

If you notice that when you get home from work or wake up in the morning, your stress is immediately heightened, it might be from the clutter. 

For spring specifically, in addition to traditional spring cleaning, it can also be helpful to bring in some natural scents inside, whether that is a living houseplant or some fragrant flowers, or lighting some candles with fresh scents.

5. Add Some Self-Care Activities for Your Health and Wellness

Lastly, make sure you are making self-care a priority this Spring. There are many different types of self-care activities you can add to your routine, but when it comes to your wellness rituals, you want them to help you feel better either physically or mentally.

This might be sitting down to read a book and enjoying a healthy snack or beverage, going for a walk or doing some light yoga, or nurturing your mental wellness by taking a long bubble bath.
