On March 20, spring will officially be back - our days will be longer, more sun will be shining through our windows, we will be turning back our clocks, and life outside will bloom. It's a time of new life, getting back into balance and get new energy to tackle even the hardest tasks. Here a few tips on how to celebrate spring equinox and make the most out of this new season.
1. GET YOUR FEET WET (literally)
Go outside! Having the ocean so close to us makes it so easy to make a trip to the Pacific and enjoy the beach. Run into the water and embrace your inner child.
Try to be as much outside as you can - do your calls from outside, park your car a bit further away or go eating lunch outside.
2. GIFT FLOWERS TO YOUR HOME
Flowers are sunshine, food and medicine for the soul.
3. TRY SOMETHING NEW
Learn a new language. Try a new cuisine. Learn how to dance. Plant some flowers. Jump on a trampoline. Do something you never did before, and have fun doing it! There is no "too old", "too late" or "that's not for me".
Take a deep breath in. Be in the moment.
Meditation has been found to help relieving anxiety and depression, and improve attention, concentration, and overall psychological well-being. What a better way to start this new season?
5. BALANCE AN EGG
"What do you want me to do?" you're probably asking. There's a myth that the Spring equinoxes are the only days of the year that you can balance an egg on its end. On March 20th, give it a try. Successful?
6. SPRING CLEANSE YOUR SKINCARE ROUTINE
Suffering from dull skin? Clogged pores? Blackheads? After a long winter, those often abound, which means now it's definitely time to switch up your skincare routine. It's also a perfect time for a professional cleansing facial to help you get rid of dead skin cells and prepare your skin for the new season, leaving you with fresh, restored and glowing skin.
