7 Health And Wellness Tips For Spring 2022
It may be nearly February, but rumour has it that spring will soon be on the way!
And with it comes more sunlight, longer days, and the chance to make better choices to improve your health (even in small ways).
So put a pep in your step and read on to spring into seven fantastic health and wellness tips for 2022.
1. Start your day with a lemony ‘zing’
After all that cold winter air, why not begin your day with a fresh glass of water and lemon juice to revitalise your body from inside out?
You’ll kill two birds with one stone by staying hydrated and with a blast of healthy vitamin C, which is great for warding off coughs and colds.
2. Schedule a daily habit of exercising for 20 minutes
We all know the benefits of regular exercise, but after hibernating inside during winter, you might have felt a lot less like doing anything physical.
But the great news is that you can get in a little exercise in a lot of ways – from two daily 10-minute strolls, to taking a weekly dance class, you’ll find yourself gradually feeling more energetic, and not wanting to stay permanently stuck to the sofa watching Netflix!
3. Make a little effort to smile more :D
Another great health and wellness tip that can really boost your overall wellbeing, finding (genuine) reasons to smile can help beat the winter blues when things still seem bleak outside.
Smiling can relieve stress, lower your blood pressure, make you look younger… the list goes on!
4. Spring clean your house, spring clean your mind
A good home spring clean is a great way to clear out the clutter both inside and out as you let go of old and unused things - you know what they say: A tidy home is a tidy mind!
And if you’re looking for some eco-friendly and low-waste ways to replace old products, look no further.
5. Include more fruit and veg in your diet
One of the oldest and finest health and wellness tips going, but a goodie.
Phase out the wintery pies, puddings, and processed meals, and say hello to a diet of seasonal spring produce full of fibre and nutrients that will have your body feeling ready to make the best of the year in no time – think fresh asparagus, strawberries, rhubarb, and spinach (yum!)
6. Set aside time for relaxation
All work and no play made Jack a dull boy, so carving out a relaxing interval in your day, or week, is essential for avoiding burnout.
From a soothing massage at the spa to ten minutes daily meditation, wandering outside in nature, or even just reading your favourite book, it’s enough to help you recharge and reset before getting back to the grind.
7. Turn off your phone – occasionally at least
We all rely on our phones more than ever these days, but it can wreak havoc on your eyes, sleeping pattern and mental health if you indulge in too much time online.
A pertinent 21st century health and wellness tip if ever there was one, spring cleaning your phone addiction and experiencing life offline a little more might be just what the doctor ordered for 2022.
