We’ve reached the point of winter where most of us are longing for the warmer days ahead. As March approaches, many people look to welcome the new season with a little spring-cleaning. It’s a great time to freshen up your home. It’s also the perfect time to freshen up your life. Each spring, I like to do a little “cleaning” up in my life. Most of my motivation from the New Year is long gone by now, so I welcome this opportunity to give my life a little reboot. Here are a few quick ways to give your life some TLC this spring.
Throw out any medicine that has passed its expiration date. It’s easy for time to pass without realizing that some of the medicine you use often has gone bad. The same goes for makeup. Do your research and toss anything that’s beyond its recommended lifespan.
Need a checkup or an eye exam? Take an hour from your day and schedule any appointments you need to make for the rest of the year.
After a long stretch of time spent indoors, schedule a day spent outdoors. Go for a hike, take a picnic, stroll through your city’s downtown area.
Get yourself ready for bare legs and arms with a spa day. Give your mind a rest with a long bath or shower. Smooth your skin with a good scrub followed with a moisturizer. Give your feet a little love with a super simple pedicure.
