5 Top Wellbeing Tips For Spring

5 Top Wellbeing Tips For Spring

Posted by Flora Firth | 26 March 2018 | Health & Fitness, Magazine

Cheerful yellow daffodils, revitalising walks outside, and sun-kissed seasonal fruit and veg stacked high signify spring’s arrival. So as the daylight hours lengthen, take some time for you: mind and body. I’ve put together 5 simple tips to help you feel good throughout this blooming season.

Move Your Body

Exercise helps us to feel more relaxed and uplifted by reducing our stress hormone levels. It can improve our mental health in many ways. We sleep better, our memory improves, our mood lifts and our motivation improves. You don’t have to be sporty to exercise – just taking a leisurely walk in the spring sunshine amongst sprouting buds can help you feel so much better.

Eat In-Season Veggies

For a tip-top immune system, your body relies on nutrition to fuel its important function. Stock up on in-season, (preferably organic) veggies: Artichoke, Beetroot, Cabbage, Carrots, Chicory, Kale, Morel Mushrooms, Parsnips, Radishes, Rocket, Spinach, Spring Greens, Spring Onions, Watercress. Add your faves to salads or whizz up and chop up to make dips and nibbles. Try out new recipes and prep colourful lunches.

Drench Your Home In Sunlight

Absorb more sunlight as the hours of daylight increase. Serotonin levels increase when we’re exposed to bright light – so sunlight is effective at improving happiness levels.

Try This: Sleep with the curtains partially open to allow some sunlight to sneak in when the sun rises. When it’s time to wake up, open them a little more.

Start A New Hobby

From playing tennis to cooking, taking time to relax with an activity you enjoy can help you reap a multitude of benefits when it comes to mental health. A hobby can help to reduce stress, improve mood, encourage socialisation, improve memory and ward off depression. Perhaps the many arty people in SW19 inspire you to pick up a sketchbook again.

Feel Uplifted By Spring Blooms

Spring bulbs are sprouting and florists doorsteps are brimming with pretty spring colours. Flowers are linked to a person’s happiness, both immediate and long term. They can relieve stress, lift your spirit, and ease away depression symptoms and anxiety.

See This: Wimbledon Village High Street is looking stunning with the Spring flowers spilling out onto the pavement. The installation outside The Ivy Café Wimbledon Village is a particular favourite of mine.
