Spring is finally here and this season has so much to teach us. 5 Spring Life Lessons of Renewal Worth Learning will guide you into embracing this time of your life and getting the most out of the lessons it has to offer.
“I believe in process. I believe in four seasons. I believe that winter’s tough, but spring’s coming. I believe that there’s a growing season. And I think that you realize that in life, you grow. You get better.” – Steve Southerland
All of nature dances in harmony with each season which creates a perfect balance. Somehow, humans have lost that connection with trusting the universe and guiding their growth through each season they’re in.
Here’s the 5 Spring Life Lessons of Renewal Worth Learning:
Showers and spring go hand in hand. Most of us have an urge to go on a cleaning spree to get our homes tidy.
Clean your windows to let the sunshine flow freely into your home. Organize shelves and drawers, so you don’t see clutter every time you need something.
Change out the heavy blankets and curtains for lighter, brighter ones.
When space you live in sparkles, it adds a twinkle to your own life.
2) Plant seeds.
I’m not talking about planting real seeds. Instead, this is about planting the seeds of your projects and dreams, so you reap a harvest in the fall.
Spring is the time of movement and going forward. Shake off the slumber of winter and start working on the plans you’ve been making all winter.
Do you want to write a book? Create an outline of what it looks like, take that class on submitting the perfect proposal, attend a seminar of a newly published author and find out how they did it.
Working from home is your dream? Invest in your office space and make sure your area flows efficiently. Buy those programs that will help you keep track of your projects and clients.
Do you want to get into incredible shape? Design the strategy that will get you there and take the necessary steps to get you in the right direction.
When you start planting the seeds of your future, just like spring planting, some of the seeds will take and others will not. But if you plant enough seeds, you’ll have a harvest to be proud of when fall rolls around.
3) Light of day.
“In winter, I plot and plan. In spring, I move.” – Henry Rollins
In spring, the days are longer, and we enjoy more sunshine than we have in several months.
Set your alarm to get up earlier to embrace the added daylight hours and accomplish more in your days. Hibernation time is over and its time to shed our sloth-like habits.
For the first month of spring, set your alarm a half-hour earlier and add another half hour each month until summer.
3) Breathe deeply.
Spring beckons us to go outside and enjoy the visual feast she has so beautifully offered.
The array of vibrant colors of flowers, green spring grass, and baby animals offers a new lease on life.
Dedicate at least a half hour a day to make sure you partake in the beauty that is outside by walking, riding your bike or running.
To find the universal elements enough; to find the air and the water exhilarating; to be refreshed by a morning walk or an evening saunter… to be thrilled by the stars at night; to be elated over a bird’s nest or a wildflower in spring – these are some of the rewards of the simple life. John Burroughs
With your renewed energy, you’ll need the proper nutrition to fuel your activities.
Lighter foods make their way onto our plates. Salads, light soups, fresh fruits, and vegetables are just some of the things we crave at this time.
Make sure you take advantage of the vitamins and minerals spring fruits and vegetables offer at their peak.
Meyer lemons, apricots, asparagus, avocados, peas, pineapples, rhubarb, strawberries, and carrots are just some of the bounty you can take advantage of.
5) Fresh start.
Renewal is the cornerstone of spring, and that element should be brought into our lives.
Remember when you were younger and you were ready to take on the world? Revive that belief in yourself and dust off the past because you have an amazing future to create.
