There’s no season quite like spring for a fresh start. And after the year we’ve had, and the uncertain times we’ve all shared, it feels like we’ve earned this spring.
The signs are promising, too. As lockdowns lift and vaccinations roll out, many are feeling more optimistic. Things are starting to feel a bit more certain with health and wellness being a top priority. Just look at some of the ways that people are starting fresh and taking control of their lives right now.
Activities for Starting Fresh and Taking Control
Focusing on Well-Being
From prioritizing sleep and healthy eating to meditation breaks, people are focusing on what makes them feel nourished. “Now more than ever, practicing self-care is essential when it comes to taking care of our emotional health and well-being,” says Christine Carter, Ph.D., sociologist, and senior fellow at the Greater Good Science Center at the University of California in Berkeley.
Setting new goals, personally and professionally
Maybe you and your family have started an outdoor fitness challenge. Or you’re taking some online courses to add to your resume skills. Setting attainable goals helps keep your eye on the prize and makes you more likely to succeed.
Discovering a new hobby
Just like opening the windows on a sunny spring day, hobbies can open up your world. Learning a new topic, experiencing different perspectives, and meeting more people can all have a positive, empowering effect on the quality of life.
The tradition of spring cleaning dates back for centuries and is a cornerstone of many cultures. And with good reason. A deep clean of surfaces throughout your home, including carpet, flooring, walls, windows, and screens, will have everyone breathing easier.
