Spring Self Care Ideas

Spring is here! 🌸 The warmer weather is (hopefully) arriving, the days are getting longer, and our local parks are full of beautiful blooms. I honestly can’t wait to go on some Springtime walks very soon! But while it’s certainly one of my favourite times of year, my self care is always a little lapse in the Spring. Perhaps it’s because the days feel a little less cosy? 🤷‍♀️

Although, we do get to enjoy beautiful sunsets like this. ⬆️⬆️

This year however, I’m going to be focusing on myself a little more, and revamping my own self care routine each season. Whether that’s practicing yoga everyday, ticking something off my to-do list, or simply getting a good nights sleep! With the in mind, I’d like to share a few of my favourite self care ideas for Spring with you. In hope that it gives you some inspiration for your own routines. 😊

Spring Self Care Ideas

Spring Cleaning

Taking some time out to declutter or clean your home can be a great way start off the new season. Whether it’s decluttering your wardrobe, cleaning out your kitchen cupboards, or giving your house a deep spring clean. It’s a great way to give yourself a fresh start.

Of course, you don’t need to wait until spring cleaning season to declutter! In fact, I personally declutter every few months, or at the start of each season. It’s a great way to refresh for the year ahead.

Declutter Your Life

After spring cleaning your home, why not consider spring cleaning other areas of your life too? Clear out your inbox, remove any apps you no longer use. Or perhaps have never used(?), say goodbye to toxic relationships, and review your schedule or to-do lists. You may even find activities that you no longer do, or enjoy. If that’s the case think about what activities you do enjoy now and replace them with those.

Try Spring Photography

Spring is one of my favourite seasons for nature photography. I love going out for Springtime walks, seeing the flowers begin to bloom, and seeing local wildlife coming out of Winter hibernation.

You don’t need to have an incredible camera either! I usually use my phone camera with a macro lens for close ups.

Learn Something New

Spring is the perfect time to learn something new. Whether that’s a new hobby, such as cross stitch, learning a new language, or even picking up something you used to enjoy. It’s not only a great way to unwind, but also gives you something else to focus on.

Buy Some Flowers For A Loved One (Or Yourself)

Flowers can be the perfect pick-me-up for springtime (or any time of year to be honest!). They make your home look so much nicer and have great mental health benefits too. Whether your buying flower for a birthday, special occasion, or just a gift to say thank you! A small bouquet is a great way to show someone you care. 😊 You could even buy one for yourself – because you certainly deserve it.

Do Some Themed Baking/Crafts

With Easter just around the corner it’s the perfect time to try out some Easter themed baking or crafts. You could try some classic cornflake nests, sugar cookies, or an indulgent cheesecake! For crafts you could try dying eggs, putting together an Easter basket for a loved one, or making decorations.

Even if you don’t celebrate Easter you could still try some regular crafts or baking this Spring. It can be a great way to spend a rainy afternoon, and also a fun activity for all the family to enjoy.

Get Outside

It’s well known that getting outside, especially in nature, is a great way to improve mental health. Whether that’s a walk around your local park, visiting a rboretum or national Trust site (such as Westonbirt Arboretum), or simply spending time in your own garden. It doesn’t matter, as long as you’re getting some much needed fresh air.

You could even take advantage of
the warmer weather by having a picnic in the park, or taking your morning coffee out on the patio. If you’re a gardener think about preparing your garden for the Spring season. For us that always start with weeding! 🙄

Another great option is to try stargazing which is something I enjoyed doing last year – there are many apps and websites on there to help you identify the constellations.

Make Plans With Your Loved Ones

Although self care is often a solitary experience, it’s important to nurture your personal relationships too. Lucikly many of the items on this list can also be shared with a friend or family member. So why not reach out to them, catch up, and simply enjoy each other’s company.

At Home Spa Day

One of my favourite ways to unwind after a long day is with a relaxing bubble bath. Complete with candles, my favourite music, and maybe a Lush Cosmetics product or too. But that’s not the only way to pamper yourself and recharge. You could also use a face mask, essential oils, paint your nails, or even curl up with a good book. It’s all about doing what feels good for you.
