6 Great Spring Ideas for Yourself

Are you ready to amp up your spring self-care? Spring is a great time to focus on just this, and also for new beginnings. It’s an excellent time to shed the old and welcome the new and refresh and renew yourself, both inside and out.

Self-care is all about taking care of yourself emotionally, mentally, physically, and spiritually. It’s about making time for yourself, taking care of your body and doing what makes you happy.

Whether that means taking a relaxing bath, going for a walk in the park, or meditating for 20 minutes each day, it’s important to find what works best for you and stick to it.
When you take care of yourself, you’re better able to take care of others. So be sure to make time for yourself this spring, and every season after.

Here are GPL’s top 6 ideas for yourself this spring!

1. Reorganize and Declutter Your Life
Spring is the perfect time to spruce up and organize your life. Take some time to go through your clothes, books, closets, drawers, and any other items you think could use some sorting. Feel a sense of accomplishment as you reorganize them into their proper places. Getting rid of items that no longer add value to your life can give you a feeling of lightness, allowing more space for growth and joy.

2. Eat Healthy, Fresh Foods
Spring is the perfect time to add more fresh produce and vitamins to your diet. Regular consumption of healthy foods like fruits and vegetables will give you a boost in energy and overall well-being. Plus, they often have a naturally sweet taste that can help satisfy cravings in lieu of processed foods!

Incorporate a couple of new seasonal items into your grocery list each week and create fun recipes with them.

  • Eat in-season fruits like strawberries, pineapple, and mangoes
  • Focus on cooking your meals instead of order take out or eating processed foods
  • Meal prep – allow yourself to eat healthier and make it easier on yourself!
  • Work on your relationship with food and find comfort in nourishing yourself

3. Reconnect with Nature and Wildlife
Spend time outside during the spring season to reap the benefits of being in nature. Not only is it great for physical health, but it also has emotional and spiritual benefits.
Take a walk in your favorite park or plan a day trip to your nearest beach or lake. Listen to the chirping of birds and observe the incredible creatures around you; let them fill your heart with joy!
Make it even more enjoyable by organizing a picnic or participating in outdoor activities like boating or biking.

4. Get creative with a DIY project or craft
Believe it or not, self-care doesn’t have to be expensive. Get your creative juices flowing and make something! Whether it’s a painting, crafting jewelry, terrariums, embroidery, collages or pottery; find your passion and let it run wild. You can also do some gardening while you’re at it; it will bring you a great feeling of accomplishment when your plants are growing healthy and well.

  • Plant flowers or vegetables and develop your green thumb
  • Try out a creative activity like painting, drawing, or writing poetry

5. Prioritize gratitude
Take a few moments each day to reflect on the things you’re grateful for. This can help shift your focus to the positive and improve your overall mood. When you start to look for the good things in life, you’ll see them more often. You’ll also find gratitude in smaller things in life.

6. Prioritize social connection in real life
If you spent more time than usual indoors during the winter, you may be yearning for more social interaction. Social relationships are beneficial for your mental health, emotional health, and for our soul! With wonderful social experiences that we can find joy in life, build stronger connections, and increase our self-love.
A couple of social self-care ideas to consider:

  • Start a dinner club with your friends – get dinner at a new restaurant once a month
  • Invite the family over for a game night

So, this Spring, give yourself some extra time to boost yourself- anything you do is more than nothing.
