Well….. almost Spring..
Its still freezing in NYC, and apparently its snowing tonight! WTH? Its almost April. But it must mean that with such a rough winter.. will come a beautiful Spring. I am so excited for Spring!! Its the season of renewal: flowers bloom, the sun comes out. Winter was a time to conserve energy and with Spring we must detox and fill ourselves with happiness once again !
And I don’t know about you, but this was a pretty rough winter.. So I have come up with some ideas to get you back in track and feeling amazing!
1.) Get a Haircut.
It may sound simple but getting a haircut makes such a huge difference in how you feel and look. I always feel like I can take on the world with a new haircut !
2.) Make Goals and Act on Them.
Its hard to get things done when its cold out. And with little sun you become vitamin D deficient. With Spring coming around there are so many brilliant ideas out there to help act on goals.
Here are some of my favorites:
– a creative way to track and make life improvements.
Learnvest – a powerful website that will set you up with a financial plan- for free!
Clear – (app) I love this app! It is so simple, easy and fun to use.
Lift – (app) This app has helped me out immensely. You can input accomplished daily goals and interact with the apps community.
3.) Express Gratitude.
I can’t say it enough: gratitude is everything. Did you see Matthew McConaugheys best actor Oscar speech?
Heres some things to remember about gratitude :
I am a firm believer that happiness comes from energy. When your tired or feeling sick, do you feel happy? Probably not! Here are some tips on keeping your energy up ..
- take an epsom salt bath- this helps detoxify the body
- get acupuncture – yes, it can be expensive, but it will help you immensely.. even once every two months.
- eat healthy and especially green food. – cut back processed foods, wheat, dairy and sugar.
- exercise regularly- even if its a small walk, especially around nature!
- take vitamins- find out which would benefit you.
- meditate- at least once a day.
- sleep– nuff said.
5.) Don’t Be Hard on Yourself
Success can only be defined by ourselves. This Spring I encourage you to be kind to yourself. Save up and go to a spa, take regular walks in the woods, maybe even take a road trip. When we do the things we love, we have more love for ourselves- creating success.
I hope everyone is having a lovely week!!
