Stress Free Spring

No one ever wants to be stressed out. Especially when warm weather is coming, like Spring and then Summer. Spring is the time to start anew! Maybe some of my own personal tips can help?

Tip #1- Spring cleaning is a known phrase for a lot of homeowners, apartment owners, mothers, well, really just everyone. A time when the house you are living in takes priority over everything else. Okay, maybe not to that extent. To make it a little less stressful and to not dread Spring cleaning coming around, why not do it at the end of Winter?! As in do it a little earlier. Get it out of the way before the warm weather comes so you can really enjoy Spring.

Tip #2- Try putting flowers up around the house. I actually have flowers everywhere and I love it. All fake, but still very effective. Usually when one receives flowers, you become happy. So flowers help tap into your emotions and help induce a positive attitude. I would love to have real flowers everywhere. Tending to plants is soothing and stress relieving.
This is what I have beside my door...

Tip #3- Walk outside a little more. Exercise is definitely a stress reliever. I'm not saying go run 6 miles outside, just a leisurely walk around the neighborhood or the nearby park. Try to get your mind off things or the other way around and give yourself time to think about things in life! A little quiet time to yourself can help in a lot of situations.

Tip #4- When the weather is appropriate, open the windows. Fresh air never hurt anyone. Nature can be a huge stress reliever. The sun can brighten up a mood or even the sound of birds outside. Bring that sunshine in and load up on the Vitamin D you were missing out on this past Winter!

Tip #5- Plan a trip. Spring break is here or coming soon! (Except poor Dallin and the other BYU students, no Spring break for them unfortunately). So for those who do not have that, try and plan even just a weekend away. Away from the place that gives you stress. Even with Spring break; doesn't have to be a huge planned out vacation to the Cayman Islands, even though that would be wonderful. Just a simple little getaway can be such a relaxing thing. Nothing wrong with going home either :)

Maybe they work for you, maybe they don't. But everyone should love to be stress free!

This is what I have up in the household right now :)
