I understand this can be a trying time for many of us and I'm not going to be another reminder of the uncertainty of these days. Nobody needs that and I don't either. Our lives have and are being reshaped right before our eyes. That's why I wanted to share with you the joy I feel today.
Today is the Spring Equinox. This is the earliest arrival of the spring equinox in 124 years. WOW! Marking the end of winter with equal length of day and night. Trees and plants begin new cycles of growth. Butterflies emerge. Birds remember their songs. It’s a time for new beginnings, and your chance to tap into its power.
With many of us now finding ourselves in our homes I wanted to share some things you can do to celebrate this time.
1) Plant some seeds!!! This is my favorite time to plant beautiful flowers so I can help my bee friends. Did you know that all of our products come with a biodegradable seed label? WHAT? Yep, the perfect thing to help our little pollinators.
What you plant grows! Well, most of the time. And this is a great time to plant something. Maybe make a container garden or spruce up that flower bed. Pull out those left-over seeds from last year and get planting.
Planting isn't just for plants either. Know is the perfect time to plant a new mindset. If you think negatively, or plant negative seeds of thought that’s what you will receive. Instead plant what you hope to see in your life. The physical plants you plant can work as a reminder of your journey.
2) Get cleaning! Spring cleaning isn’t just for your home so consider what areas of your life could use a good cleaning.
You could clean your car inside and out. Create a food challenge (one of my favorites) and pick something you have always wanted to try (vegan meals or eating an apple a day). Get rid of processed or sugary foods from your pantry. Rid yourself of all those harmful products in your bathroom (another personal favorite). Let your intuition guide you and get creative.
3) Get outside! As the beautiful sunshine returns now is a great time to do things outside. It is said that time spent in nature can help reduce depression and now is a great time for it. You can go for a hike, sit outside and read a book or go for a long drive (remember those Sunday drives as a kid? Yeah, well do that).
4) Set new intentions! Choose what metaphorical seeds you are planting this season. What values are you hoping to align with? What desires or dreams are you wanting? It may help to create a vision board or journal about your goals. It can sometimes be a good idea to tell your goals to someone you trust so they can help keep you accountable.
