Spring symbolizes new beginnings.
During this time of transformation, it's essential to be functioning at your best, so we created a quick self-care guide for you to kickstart this fresh chapter of your life.
Remember that self-care is something we should be focusing on ALL year long. But as every season gifts us with its own peculiarities, we couldn't miss this opportunity to reinforce the importance of loving yourself throughout this time of renewal and growth.
1. Declutter your home
It’s time to let go of what no longer serves you and make room for novelty.
Clean each space in your home and, as Marie Kondo says, "keep only what sparks joy." To keep you inspired, we recommend watching her new “Tidying Up” series on Netflix.
2. Eat more fruits and fresh veggies
Treat yourself to delicious fruits and vegetables straight from the farmer to your table, if you can.
Making a conscious effort to eat more fresh greens is a lovely way to bring in that spring energy and get a boost of nutrients for your body too.
3. Be grateful for yourself
Each morning, grab your journal and write down three things you're grateful for yourself.
It may be challenging at first because we tend to focus more on the negative than the positive aspects, but with practice, it will get smoother and you'll realize that there's so much to celebrate about the person you are today.
Let this be your brag zone! Be as kind to yourself as you are with those you love.
4. Create a Spring playlist on Spotify
Music feeds your soul.
Create a smooth, smile-inducing playlist with upbeat tunes. At the moment we're loving the "Good Vibes" playlist on Spotify. Tell me in the comments below what songs make you feel happy the most.

8. Clean up your digital devices
Delete apps or photos that you no longer need. Unfollow pages that show content that doesn't bring you joy. Change your wallpaper to something inspiring.
9. Spend time outdoors
Getting out into the fresh air and sunshine lift your spirits. Take the time to smell the blooming flowers and go for a walk, noticing Mother Nature awakening from a long winter nap.
Making plans with the people you love is also a crucial form of self-care. If outdoors, even better!
10. Take time to relax
Book a day off work, read a book, watch a movie, or do whatever you feel like doing that day — you deserve it!
In a modern fast-pace world, taking time to recharge is even more important. Proper relaxation helps you to live healthy and fully.
11. Create a new vision for the future
A vision for the future helps you to pursue your dreams and achieve life goals.
Creating a vision will both inspire you to reach something you are wanting and it also empower you planning what changes you need to do today to become your future self.
