Spring is officially here and it is the time of the year where the world starts to do spring cleaning while making goals for the next period of their lives, most wishing for continuous work, health and love, excellent things to look after.
Spring is about a new bloom of self as well as understanding what this new season can bring you. It is very important to take care of ourselves and start paying more attention to our self-care routines, and if you don’t have one already or you don’t know where to begin, this article will help you out. Below you can find the top three Spring self-care techniques so you can kick off this new season with the right foot and work towards being the best version of yourself.
Keep A Habit Tracker
Even though it is not the new year, it is a new season which is great for keeping us motivated and excited for the upcoming phase in our life, but sometimes our winter blues and goals for the year can become overwhelming, causing us to drop them in no time. To fight this, and enhance your self-care in the following year, it is highly recommended that you keep a habit tracker.
A habit tracker can be designed on a notebook or a printable downloaded from Pinterest, which can contain the daily and long-term habits you wish to maintain such as being more active, cleaning up your house every day, or choosing a special day exclusively for pampering and taking care of yourself.
It will help you stay motivated because you can see your progress each time, as well as in line to make sure you don’t skip things.
Find Your Perfect Daily Exercise Activity
It is no secret that doing some kind of physical activity a few times a week does wonder for your body and mind. A new season always motivates people to commit to going to the gym every day in the following week, but as before, this feeling only lasts a few days for many, but here’s how to hack this drop-out mentality.
Although going to the gym is a great plan, there are many other ways to keep a healthy body and mind that don’t require picking up some dumbbells such as riding a bike, going for a walk, signing up for dance classes, pilates, swimming and so on. The key is to find your perfect daily activity that you truly enjoy so you don’t have any excuse to not show up. In the long run, this will help you tremendously due to the simplicity of your new technique or habit, which is a concept very well described and explained by James Clear in his book Atomic Habits.
Invest In Yourself
Investing in yourself means spending some time researching and trying out different self-care techniques that can help you discover new ways of looking after yourself. In addition to this, when talking about investing it means that there are certain things truly worth purchasing to create a better self-care routine for you.
Not only in terms of money, such as investing in a gym membership for your body, quality shoes for keeping you warm during the winter, or purchasing tickets to go see your favorite band for your mind, but to invest time as well, which these days can seem more “expensive” than money itself.
Taking care of yourself implies spending time with yourself, whether it is reading a book, painting, or going for a walk, it is highly important to invest in things that truly make you happy.
