It’s officially spring, the clock has gone forward, and the temperatures are finally rising. Don’t get stuck in your old winter routine. Make the most out of spring!
Get up earlier
When we think of spring, longer evenings come to mind, but we forget the mornings are longer too. Take time to enjoy them. The sun rises earlier, making it much easier to get up than in winter, so it won’t be a big deal. Watch the sunrise and commute to work by foot or bike.
Go wildlife watching
Spending time watching wildlife is much more enjoyable in milder weather. Go for a walk along the coast to try and spot seals or take a whale-watching trip. A lot of migratory birds reach the UK in spring. Go see the ospreys or puffins when they arrive. You might even want to try and catch a glimpse of the few beavers that live in Britain.
Go for a lunch break walk
Don’t look at the sun longingly from your desk – get outside. Go for a walk and enjoy getting to know the area around your office. Have a look on Google maps and see if there is a green spot 15/20 minutes away from where you can enjoy your lunch.
Listen and watch the birds
You’ll notice the bird are much more active in the spring, yes. But take time to listen and watch them perform their displays. You’ll realize what exceptional little creatures they are. Nothing says spring more than birdsong.
Work on your garden or buy some new plants
Planting new seeds in your garden or see your favourite flowers grow in your apartment will help you appreciate the change of season.
Spend time outdoors before sunset
Whether you fancy going for a walk up a hill to watch the sun go down, a game of softball, or a simple run in the park, take the opportunity to enjoy the extra light in the evenings. It’ll make your day feel longer and will help you end it in a more positive way.
Visit wild places
At the weekend, get out and explore a wood, climb a mountain, or canoe on a lake. Try out new things and enjoy nature – you’ll feel more alive.
