As we begin to move closer to spring our bodies can begin to feel sluggish as well as our minds, and our emotions. It’s good to begin to add a few healthy things to our routine and take away a few unhealthy things from our routine. Here are five simple ways to reset your mind body and soul and get you moving in a healthier, happier direction.
Start your mornings off with a big dose of hydration by drinking a cup of hot water with a slice of lemon. Lemon water helps rejuvenate dull skin, and also helps you digest food better so you’ll be less bloated throughout the day.
If you want to start or get back into a morning routine, try squeezing in some good ol’ self-care with the power hour method. You want to spend 20 minutes doing something for your mind, then your body, and then your soul. It’s the number one thing that gets me out of bed in the morning.
Go outside on your lunch break or whenever you have 10 minutes to spare (*cough* make the time) without your phone, and take some time to notice your surroundings, feel the air on your skin, and take in some long, deep, and reflective breaths.
Maybe you’ve been feeling a little lethargic from your food choices lately. If so, try adding in more of the good stuff – think fruit smoothies with spinach, a hearty salad for lunch, and a big ol’ pile of veggies as a side for dinner. Sometimes we immediately try to cut things out when we’re trying to get healthier, but adding things in is a much better approach in my opinion.
5. Treat your skin.
Brush: Dry brushing your skin before a shower because it gets your blood flowing, unclogs pores, and helps to remove any dead skin. Start at your feet and move upwards in long sweeping motions toward your heart.
Scrub: What better way to get your skin back into it’s supple state than with a good body scrub.
Glow: If your skin is looking a little lackluster, rosehip oil is an amazing thing to use on your face before bed because it helps even out skintone and creates a glowing complexion.
