Spring is a time for new beginnings. Flowers bloom, grass grows and baby birds start appearing.
Spring is a great change from the mood lessening season of winter. It can be hard to shake those winter blues to welcome the warmth. It can be done though.
Today we are talking about some effective ways to boost your mood to embrace spring. These 6 tips are the most ideal of them all. Easy, affordable and efficient. So goodbye to winter and Hello Spring
Welcome Spring with Flowers
Fun fact- there are certain flowers
that are proven to boost your mood, cure your stress and anxiety.
I know looking at flowers always change my mood into better. Plant
some outside or buy some from the store.
For those with flower allergies, there is a way to get your flowers also- fake
. The good thing about fake flowers is they last forever. I know they don’t get the smell but you can still admire their beautiful colors.
*Protip- If you are ok with perfume then spray some of.your favorite on the fake flowers to give them a sweet smell.
*comes in multiple colors
look at this one 😍😍 not even flowers but plastic flowers that have a light. I have something similar to this. It is a skeleton hand holding a black rose. It’s in a container like this
Garden tools for summer garden. Includes various seeds
Welcome Spring Birds
I love the coming of the birds during the spring. Hearing the new babies chirp and taking photos of their furless bodies. Oh it brings me much joy.
Maybe you live in an area where there are many birds but none come close to your house. Or maybe you are trying to attract a certain bird.
Whatever the case may be, buying something like a hanging bird feeder
will help your mood. A bird bath
to watch the birds play in water.
You can also buy a hanging planter
to buy certain plants. I have seeds
that will attract Hummingbirds.
Spring Clean your House

Update your wardrobe for spring
Nothing like a new season to have a cleanout of the clothing kind.
Get reid of things that don’t fit.
Put the clothes you don’t wear in a separate pile. Put those in a bag. Do not throw them away right now. Instead, go threw them the week next. You never know if you threw something away that you will regret later on
Keep things that you know you are going to wear. Or atleast have an 80% chance of wearing
Now is the fun part- Shopping. Do not be discouraged if you don’t have the money for new clothes. You can search on Google for Salvation Army’s, discount clothes, churches and free clothes in your area. Alot of great things come from these places. I found Shaq (the former NBA center) shoes in a free closet at a church.
I go there whenever they have it because of the fact that I can find some clothes that I would never be able to find in stores like Walmart. Such unique. I want to also go to free clothing places to update my closet for the spring.
Go for a walk
I swear the best method for mental wellness is a walk outdoors. It is highly recommend by nearly every expert and non expert. Which is understandable as walking really changes your mood.
Fun fact– fresh air makes your body and mind happy.
You can read about benefits of getting fresh air at Kent Teach
Some benefits of a spring walk-
The fresh air
The smell of flowers
A perfect temperature so you won’t get too warm or too cold
The smell after the spring rain
The blooming of the trees
Possibly seeing a baby animal
Go out and have that walk. Just go without having a special place and see where the adventure takes you. Play some Pokemon Go
while you are at it. Catch those Pikachu’s.
of real wild animals.
Stay in and watch the rain
Spring showers bring spring flowers.
I love the rain which is one reason why I love this time of year. Sitting on the porch watching as it downpours with my cup
of Honey Lemon Tea
(I buy this in bulk. I love it so much)Then taking a nap to the sound. Something out of a romantic book.
The myth is that rain brings on sadness. This can be true but not always. Really depends on what you do during. You sit there and dwell staring at the rain then of course you are going to wind up thinking and get sad.
But if you are doing something relaxing then your mood can be boosted.
Next time it rains I want you to bring a drink and snack to a window. Watch the rain. Think about how amazing it is. How clouds can produce wetness that falls onto the ground making things grow. Try not to think of anything sad. When it stops, go outside and take a deep breath in. What do you smell?
Fun things to do in Spring
Going into spring can be hard. It may take some time but you sure to break out of that funk to fully embrace the new season. Welcome those birds, smell those flowers and enjoy cleaning your house.
Hopefully this post has given you enough inspiration to get you motivated to go and have a spring blast. No need to be a Gloom
when the weather is a bloom. Be a Sunflora
and go get some vitamin c
