Spring is the perfect time for fresh starts. As the snow starts melting and you’re packing away your sweaters and spring-cleaning your home, think about ways you can spring clean your health. What better time than now to improve your life in a healthy, positive way.

Seven Ways to Refresh Your Health This Spring

1. Refresh Your Workout

Doing the same workout day after day can not only cause burnout and boredom, but you will hit a plateau as your body gets use to your workout. Switch it up and try something new! Consider trying a new class at your gym, using the pool or adding squats to the end of your walk.

2. Get Outside

Beat the winter blues once and for all and get outdoors and enjoy the warmer weather. Studies have shown outdoor exercise can improve your mental well-being, make you feel revitalized, and ease tension, anger and stress. 

3. Spring Clean Your Pantry

Still have Valentine’s Day candy in your pantry? Go through and purge your pantry of unhealthy temptations like chips, sugary drinks and sweets and replace them with healthier options.

4. Learn How to De-Stress

Reducing your stress not only makes you feel better, but can have positive long-term effects on your health. Learn what your stress triggers are and find an effective outlet for relief, like morning meditation or taking three deep breathes when stress overwhelms you.

5. Out With the Old, In With the New

Treat yourself to a new pair of running shoes or workout outfit to motivate yourself. As a rule of thumb, running shoes should be replaced every 600 miles since the cushioning and soles will wear down with time.

6. Set a Small, Non-Weight Related Goal

Have you always wanted to do ten pull-ups or run a 5k race? Setting a positive goal can help give renewed purpose and motivation to your workouts.

7. Eat Local Seasonal Produce

Produce that is in-season tastes better and costs less. Hit up your local farmer’s market and stock-up on in-season produce like asparagus and artichokes.
