6 Ways to Let Spring Give You Hope

1. Take a mindful walk in nature and observe what you see. Wherever you are, and whatever phase of spring you’re surrounded by, go and immerse yourself in it. Notice the rebirth around you.

2. Sit in the sunshine. When the sun comes out, go out to meet it. Simply sit in it. Let the rays of sunshine warm your achy, and make you smile.

3. Eat the fruit and vegetables that are in season in your area right now. Spring brings birth to a lot of fresh vegetables and fruit. Find out what is in season in your local area right nowÑand eat it!

4. Plant something, nurture it, and watch it grow. You don’t need a garden to do this as you can grow all kinds of things in all kinds of pots. Pick anything you want and make a commitment to take care of it. It gives you a reason to get out of bed in the morning.

5. Set new intentions. As nature shifts gears, so can you. It’s the perfect time to set new intentions that set the right tone for your life. It reminds you that you are in control of your life.

6. Skip. Put all that extra spring energy into use and replace walking with skipping. Skip from your sofa to the kitchen. Skip to the grocery store.
