Welcome spring! I spent this past weekend planting my garden. The weather was beautiful, as my husband, daughter, and I enjoyed getting our hands dirty and soaking up each other’s company. This year, I’m attempting to grow more vegetables than ever before, and I’m hopeful for a healthy, happy crop. As we usher in this new season, here are a few tips for celebrating a rejuvenating springtime. 

5 Steps for a Rejuvenating Spring

1. Sign off social media

Whether for a day, week, or longer, try a total reset by giving yourself a break from social media. While there are great benefits from using these platforms, sometimes they can wreak havoc on your mentality and mood. Instead, be present in the moment with yourself and those around you. You don’t need to know what that friend who you never talk to anymore ate for lunch. 

2. Step Outside

There is nothing like breathing in fresh air to rejuvenate your soul. Spend some time outside in the sunshine. Plant a garden, read a book, call a friend, or sunbathe (with proper SPF protection, of course!) — whatever interests you, try doing it outdoors.

3. Scrub, scrub, scrub

Wintertime often means dry, irritated skin. Celebrate the new season by exfoliating and scrubbing off dead skin cells. Take it one step further and make your own salt or sugar scrub. Check out past issues of Willow and Sage for recipe ideas.

4. Schedule spring cleaning

Spring cleaning — some people love it and others loathe it. This year, make a plan and figure out the best way to tackle all your sprucing up needs and how to incorporate all-natural supplies. Thanks to a thought-out schedule, you’ll be less overwhelmed.

5. Say “yes!”

Have you been wanting to try something new but haven’t gotten around to it? Now is the time! Tackle that project, experiment in the kitchen, explore a hidden trail — you never know what you might find.
