Spring is here.  We welcome change as the longer days return and the outdoors can be enjoyed. Wherever you are, springtime health and wellness are something we can all agree is important!

Our top springtime health and wellness tips:

  • Get Moving!  The benefits of regular exercise have been well-documented. From something as simple as a daily walk to more intense cardio and strength training, keeping our body moving has major advantages for our physical and mental health. Regular exercise can make all the difference in feeling better. There are tons of great exercise programs that can be done at home, without the need for a lot of space or equipment. Taking up yoga can have the double benefit of exercising the body and quieting the mind.


  • Refreshing Sleep Hygiene for Spring.  Maintaining regular sleep cycles are incredibly important to springtime health and wellness. In the springtime, there are several factors that can disrupt the sleep cycle. Allergies cause disruptive sniffling and our bodies are naturally tuned in to the sun, those longer daylight hours leave time for activities but less time for sleep. It’s vital to practice good sleep hygiene to overcome those seasonal challenges and stay healthy. Stay away from screens as bedtime draws near, dim the lights, and meditate.


  • Keep On the Sunny Side.  Similar to maintaining good sleep hygiene, getting outside and enjoying the sunlight helps to align the body’s circadian rhythms. This does wonders for our mental health. It’s true that regular daylight exposure boosts our alertness, improves our mood, and can help lower blood pressure and strengthen our immune systems. In particular, 30 minutes of early morning sunlight has been shown to have strong effects on overall health.


  • Practice Good Nutrition.  When you’re facing spring allergies a strong immune system is the foundation of a healthy response. A strong immune system is built on a balanced diet and good nutrition. Fresh fruits and vegetables, unsaturated fats, and whole grains are just a few of the foods that help build a strong immune system. To support springtime health and wellness, consider Vitamin C, Vitamin D, and zinc as supplements to incorporate along with a healthy diet.

Spring is a season of hope and renewal. Whether you are revamping your wellness journey, settling into a seasonal routine, or supporting a consistent and healthy lifestyle, spring is the perfect season to prioritize your personal care. Be well!
