Spring is finally here! If you’re looking for ways to make the most out of this wonderful season, we've got you covered! Below are five fun and healthy activities to add to your spring bucket list.
Eat Outside More
It’s time to get some fresh air! Being outside, even for a brief period, can reduce your stress and boost your mood. Exposure to sunlight will increase your white blood cells and vitamin D levels. All while lowering your cortisol production. So, take your meal outdoors and enjoy all nature has to offer!
Visit a Park
Visiting a park is a great way to relieve stress and get some exercise! Many parks have areas for walking, biking, skating, fishing, and canoeing. You can go by yourself or make it a family outing. Put your phone down, get out of the house, and find a park near you!
Start Spring Cleaning
It’s time for some spring-cleaning! Look around your house and make a list of what you want to declutter/clean/organize. So you don’t get discouraged, only work on one section each day. You can even partake in a 30-day spring-cleaning challenge to keep you motivated and make it fun! Having a clean living space makes us feel good and increases productivity.
Visit a Farmers’ Market
Spring is the perfect time to visit your local farmers’ market! Buy fresh fruit and vegetables at a farmers’ market to support your local community. It is a great way to eat healthier too! You can find jewelry, art, clothes, etc. But, you don’t have to buy anything! You can even pass through and connect with other locals in your town.
Plant a Garden
Why not plant a garden? It's not only good for the environment, but it also improves mental and physical well-being! Studies report gardening can contribute to reductions in depression, anxiety, and BMI. This simple activity can improve life satisfaction and sense of community. Spring is a great time to start planting your garden!
