Getting the Most Out of the Spring Season

Guide to a Fulfilling Spring Season


Spring is a beautiful time of the year. With longer days and warmer weather, it is a good time to renew your health goals, refresh your home, clean your yard, or plant a garden. Here are a few suggestions on how you can get the most out of this rejuvenating time of the year.

Spring Clean and Organize:

Give your home a fresh start by decluttering, organizing, and cleaning every room. Involve your family, and make it a fun experience. Give yourself reasonable time to tackle each area of the house. Don’t forget to use essential oils to help you clean. Essential oils, such as Lemon, Lime, Thyme, Melaleuca, and doTERRA On Guard®, contain powerful cleansing properties that clean surfaces and remove grime, dirt, and unpleasant odors without harmful chemicals.

Plan Ahead:

Write down your goals and what you want to accomplish this spring season. Start with a general list first, then develop a detailed plan for each category. Whether its spring cleaning, planting a garden, or improving your lifestyle, developing a plan will help you stay on track with your desired accomplishments.

Garden:

A recent study in the Netherlands suggests that gardening can fight stress even better than other relaxing activities. Gardening can be a fun and rewarding experience for the entire family. Start by allocating an area, clean it, and prepare for planting. Purchase seeds, transplants, soil, and any other necessary tools. If you are an inexperienced gardener, do some research online or ask someone you know to guide you through the process. 

Improve Your Diet:

Explore local farms and markets for fresh, in-season produce. Use leafy greens to make green smoothies and fresh salads. Prepare a light dinner with asparagus, carrots, and potatoes along with other nutritious veggies. Replenish your body with vitamins and minerals for more energy and a healthier body. Consider adding quality supplements such as the Daily Nutrient Pack to your daily diet for complete nutritional support. Just like your house, your body may also needs a refresher. Drink plenty of water and use Zendocrine® and GX Assist® to cleanse and detoxify your body.

Become More Physically Active:

Make exercise part of your regular routine. Exercise can reduce stress, improve sleep, sharpen memory, improve self-confidence, inspire creativity, and help you find balance. Now, that the outside temperature is warmer, you can go on a jog, take a bike ride, or enjoy a nice hike. Take one step at a time. Developing regular exercise habits takes time and effort. Teach your kids to be more physically active by setting an example— encourage them to discover activities that they will enjoy.

Challenge: Make a goal to exercise for 30 minutes a day at least three times a week.

Let Spring Into Your House:

Open the windows and let the fresh spring air and warm light fill every room in your house. Gather or buy a fresh bouquet of spring flowers weekly. The bright colors and wonderful fragrance will lift your mood and add beauty to your home. Diffusing essential oils is another great way you can fill your house with the refreshing aromas of spring.

Spend Time Outside:

Nature offers many benefits to your mental and physical well-being. Daily exposure to the sun can boost your mood, increase energy levels, and improve your overall health. Enjoy beautiful spring weather by going on a short walk, organizing a picnic, doing some yard work, or taking your kids to the park. Just a little bit of sunshine and fresh air can help you clear your mind and recharge your body.
