The Spring Guide To Starting Fresh

As the days grow longer and the warm weather blossoms into spring mode, there’s no time better to start a detox. I’m not talking about a health detox. I’m talking about one that touches on all aspects of our life and helps us feel refreshed for the upcoming season. If you’re like me and need to do some spring cleaning in your life, this is for you!

Do Something For Yourself

Whether its checking out aΒ new yoga class, reading a book, or treating yourself in any way you see fit- do it! Now is the time to get yourself excited for Spring and the adventures ahead. There’s no better way than to do something for you. If it makes you feel good and brings you joy, don’t hesitate to treat yourself.

Create A Health Plan

Warmer weather means adding a dose of adventure into your workouts. It’s finally warm enough to take jogs through the woods and bring your work out routine into the outdoors. Spring is the perfect time to step up your health game and try outΒ new recipesΒ just in time for the summer!


Write It Out

Put pen to paper and write out all of your goals, dreams and aspirations for the upcoming months. Is there anything you’ve been itching to cross off your bucket list? Write it down! All of the changes you’re yearning to make will be closer toΒ reach if you physically write them down. It will help to have something to look back on when you’re in need of inspiration.

Go On An Adventure

Enjoy the coming of Spring by immersing yourself in nature and seeing it first hand! Spring is one of my favourite times to go for adventures. The birds are chirping, the air is warm, flowers are blooming- it’s a breath of fresh air after a long winter. Spending time in the outdoors is a great way to calm yourself amidst the chaos of life, and to help you remember what you value.

      Thank you Kayleigh, I’m glad you enjoyed the read! xx

  • I love this guide, Diana. I’ve gained quite a bit of weight recently and this reminded me that instead of self-hating, I should definitely write my goals down and do something for myself.

      Thank you Eena! Good luck with your goals I’m sure you will do great things πŸ™‚

  • Writing out the things that are on my mind always seems to help me sort out my thoughts seem to help me also, and so do going on walks. There’s something about nature that really whisks me away from reality for a little while, and I love it! Great post x

      Thank you Kyia! xx

  • Spring always leaves me in a place where I feel completely renewed and refreshed. But I’ll say that for so many people, myself included, it’s so hard to do things for yourself. I think I’ll try a new yoga class like you suggested xx

      Thank you Lauren! xx

  • I got a book for my birthday where each day you write down 3 things you’re thankful for so that will definitely help with writing it out! I always tell myself spring is the time to start running again (I used to run everyday) and I never get round to it so seeing it as one of your four is annoyingly motivating haha! Hope Spring has started off well for you. (p.s your photos are so aesthetic)

      Agreed, it always works so well!

  • I’m doing many of these things lately! I’ve started making smoothies every morning since the beginning of the year, and I’ve been doing yoga 1-2 times a week since December. It has really been nice to do these routines for me and my health πŸ™‚ xo
