Happy Spring! After what felt like a really long winter, Spring is finally here and the warm weather is slowly coming. Although Fall is my favorite season, I’ve always loved Spring because it feels like a new beginning. The warm weather and sunshine are the perfect motivation to try something new and to organize your life. I thought I would share some different easy ways you can get ready for Spring!
Spring cleaning might seem like an overused term, but there honestly is no better feeling than getting rid of what you no longer need! Spend a weekend getting rid of the things you don’t use and organizing your space. Before putting everything back, give your space a deep clean too. And this doesn’t just apply to your actual space. Giving your digital space a declutter is needed too! Go through your computer + phone and put things on a hard drive, close any tabs you no longer need and remove any apps you don’t use.
It can be hard to be active during winter since it’s just too cold to do anything outside. But being active and having a regular workout routine is the best thing for both your body and mind. So think of some ways you can get moving and give it a try! The important thing is to find something you enjoy doing and sticking to it. It can be something as simple as going for walks or doing some pilates + yoga at home.
One of the best things about spring is when all the flowers start to bloom. So you might as well bring some inside too! Trader Joe’s is always my favorite place to pick up some flowers. But if you’re not a flower person, add a few plants to your space!
The best way to give your space the feeling of being new is by changing out your pillows and blankets. This doesn’t have to be expensive either! IKEA is one of my favorite places to get pillows because all you have to do is buy a new cover. I always prefer having lighter pillows in spring and darker, knit ones for winter. Find some pillows that give you the best spring/summer vibes + a light throw and add them to your space.
Another great place to declutter is your wardrobe! At the end of every season, I like to go through my closet and see what I didn’t wear. So take some time to go through your winter wardrobe and get rid of what you didn’t wear, since chances are you probably won’t wear it again. And then treat yourself to a few new items in your spring wardrobe! This way when the weather warms up you have something to look forward to wearing.
And those are some easy ways to get ready for spring! I’d love to know how you plan on getting ready for spring!
