Spring has sprung, and there are a lot of things to do! One way to celebrate spring is by planting spring flowers. Having a vegetable garden or starting a community garden can be a rewarding experience as well. We highly recommend it!
It's also an excellent time to start your spring cleaning. Check out Homemade Eco-Friendly Cleaners For Your Home for a list of safe and natural products that can help you to keep your home it's cleanest, while also keeping it safe from chemicals that could be harmful to you and the environment. Clean out those closets and drawers, and donate all of those unwanted items. Having less clutter around is a great way to clear the mind, as well as help someone else! We also ran across a fun little book called the Busy Mom's Guide to Cleaning: The 10-Step Guide to Declutter and Clean All Things the Fast, Natural, Eco-Friendly Way by Vanessa Johnson that might give you some much needed inspiration, as well as some great ideas for doing just that!
Also, Farmer's Markets are popping up everywhere, and now is a great time to take advantage of the fresh produce and support the local growers in your area. Some great foods you can look forward to this season are artichokes, asparagus, and strawberries. To see what's in season in your area, just put in your zip code at Eat Well Guide dot Org.
Spring is also an excellent time to reflect on where you are in life. Are you doing everything you hoped you would be doing? Do you need more time with friends, more sleep, more exercise, more rest? Are you reaching the goals you've set for yourself in health, happiness, family, relationships, career, money, and love? If not, it's an excellent time to make some adjustments, and change things around a bit so that you can start meeting your goals.
Spring is the perfect time to get happy and healthy!
