5 Ways to Spring Clean Your Self-Care Routine

Spring has never been more welcome, and we’re ready to welcome it into every aspect of our lives.

Self-care looks different to everyone, but in the winter, it often features hot baths, good food and drink, and curling up under a blanket with a good book or your favourite trashy TV show.

Although self-care is important all year round, as spring arrives, you may want to spring clean your self-care routine with more time outdoors in nature, mindfulness, creating a tidy living space and embracing all things spring.

1. Nourish Your Body

Of course, you should be nourishing your body all year round, but spring has some lovely seasonal ingredients for you to include in your diet.

Seasonal spring ingredients include:

  • Kale
  • New potatoes
  • Parsnips
  • Rhubarb
  • Rocket
  • Spinach
  • Spring greens
  • Watercress
  • Asparagus
  • Purple sprouting broccoli
  • Radishes

Even if you don’t follow a vegan or plant-based diet, centring your meals around fresh seasonal ingredients can help you to nourish your body with plenty of natural goodness. And if you do follow a vegan diet, you can find plenty of vegan supplements to support your health and wellness at Every Health.

2. Spring Clean Your Self-Care Cupboard

At Every Health, you can create a wellness bundle that’s tailored perfectly to your individual needs, making sure you’ve got the products you need to support your health and wellbeing.

If you want to make sure you’ve got the essentials and products that you’ll actually use in your self-care cupboard, we recommend investing in a multivitamin that can provide you with multiple nutrients in one serving.

Garden of Life’s mykind Organics Women’s Multi Gummies are a good option, containing vitamins B2, B3 and B8 to help maintain healthy skin. These berry-flavoured chews contain vitamins B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, B8 and B12 to contribute to normal energy-yielding metabolism, and they can help to reduce fatigue, thanks to vitamins C, B2, B3, B5, B9 and B12.

Always check the labels of your protein powders or collagen supplements too, to see what else they could be providing you with. For example, Garden of Life’s Raw Organic Protein Powder contains vitamins D and E K, as well as providing a good source of vegan protein. Meanwhile, Garden of Life’s Collagen Beauty Powder also contains vitamin C, which contributes to normal collagen formation for the normal function of skin.

3. Embrace Essential Oils

Aromatherapy essential oils can help to influence your mood and Garden of Life has a huge range of oils made from organic plant extracts. Depending on the season, you may like to embrace different scents by putting a few drops in a reed diffuser, room spray or even into your bath.

In the spring, suitable scents include cleansing, calming, relaxing Lemon or invigorating, refreshing Eucalyptus. Garden of Life’s Breathe essential oil blend is another great option for spring, featuring black spruce, fir balsam and rosemary to create a clearing, clarifying effect that’s perfect for the new season.

4. Practise Gratitude

The arrival of spring can have a positive impact on our mood, putting us in a better frame of mind for practising gratitude.

You might want to do this by simply taking a few minutes to count your blessings when you wake up each morning or before you go to bed at night, but you may also want to start a gratitude journal to keep a record of the things – little or big – that you appreciate each day.

This could be something as small as enjoying the spring sunshine on your face, appreciating the food you ate or feeling thankful for your home, job or family.

5. Bring the Outdoors Indoors

Bringing the outdoors indoors is a lovely way to welcome in spring. Bringing seasonal flowers, such as daffodils and tulips, inside can be a huge mood boost. Nurturing indoor plants over the winter months when things can feel harder can also provide you with a real sense of achievement by the springtime.

You can also bring natural goodness into your home – and your body – by embracing products with whole food ingredients at their heart, like the vitamins, microbiomes and protein supplements available from Garden of Life. Every ingredient can be traced right back to its original source, so you can be sure you’re only putting good stuff into your body.

Sleep is also a key part of self-care. Find out how to improve your sleep here:
