6 Ways to Spring Clean Your Health
The spring season has finally arrived! The weather is getting warmer, the days are getting longer, and we’re all feeling a little more motivated. It’s common for us to clean up around the house this time of year, but what about cleaning up our habits? At Metro Transportation, we think that our physical and mental health deserves a good spring cleaning just as much as our homes. With the spread of the coronavirus, it’s important now more than ever to prioritize your health and wellness. Here are our six favorite practices to spring clean your health!
1. Reset your sleep schedule.
Are you lacking adequate sleep? Not getting enough sleep leads to problems such as stress and fatigue. If you’re determined to spring clean your health, resetting your sleep schedule should be the first thing on your to-do list. Daylight Saving Time changes our sleep cycles and it can really throw us off. Focusing on getting adequate sleep will help to improve your mental and physical well-being.
2. Clean your diet.
Health and nutrition go hand in hand. Eating clean not only helps with weight loss- it boosts your overall health. Consuming whole foods and cutting back on processed foods will make a huge difference in the way you look and feel. The same is true for what you drink. Drinking water instead of high-sugar beverages will provide more nutrients and energy. When you’re out in the sun this spring, don’t forget to eat clean and stay hydrated!
3. Try a new workout.
Exercise is essential for physical and mental well-being. If you’re looking to make a change in the spring, trying a new workout is a great way to improve your health and keep yourself motivated. This practice will help you to increase strength, boost energy, and build confidence!
4. Spend time outside.
Simply being outdoors is good for your health because it decreases stress levels. Now that the temperature is rising and the sun is shining, it’s the perfect time to start going outside. Try to go for a walk regularly to burn some calories and expose yourself to the benefits that nature brings.
5. Care for your skin.
Keeping your skin clean and washing your hands frequently will help you to avoid the common cold and flu this spring. Your skin also may need a little TLC after enduring the harsh winter months and excessive hand-washing during the recent pandemic. Make sure that you’re gently cleansing and moisturizing to keep your skin looking and feeling its best. If you want to go the extra mile for your skin, treat yourself to a facial and/or body treatment at the spa.
6. Declutter your home.
Has throwing away clutter ever made you feel instantly lighter? Spring cleaning your home is certainly a great way to spring clean your health. Creating more physical space for yourself allows for more mental space as well, which helps to clear your mind and eliminate negativity. If decluttering seems overwhelming, simply start in one small area and gradually work your way around the house. Feel your physical and mental space get lighter and lighter as you go!
