In today’s blogpost, I am sharing 7 ways to welcome spring! With the arrival of spring comes the anticipation of warmer weather and brighter days ahead. These are ideas to immerse yourself into this beautiful and refreshing season with activities that are both fun and productive.
I love living in a place that experiences all four seasons – the change that happens four times a year always gives me something to look forward to! But of all the seasons, the coming of Spring brings the most anticipation. There is something always so refreshing about nature turning bright and green, warmer weather, and longer days!
This year is no different, and I have been thoroughly enjoying the warmer weather and the sunny days (in between the cold, rainy days… hello Midwest spring). I thought it would be fun to put together some ways that I have been welcoming spring!
Listen to a Spring themed playlist
Listening to music that brings the feelings of spring is a great (and easy) way to welcome spring. I created the perfect little playlist for spring HERE. I have been listening to this playlist non-stop, and it has been making me very excited for spring! If my playlist isn’t your style, make your own playlist that brings you spring vibes!
Surround Your Space with Fresh Greenery
Nothing screams spring like fresh plants and flowers. You can buy all sorts of plants to fill your space and lift your mood. I bought a $5 bouquet of flowers from Walmart and they are still going strong 2 weeks later! I can’t help but smile every time I see the beautiful bouquet.
But if you really want to get into the spring spirit, plant your own with seeds! Watching plants grow from seeds you planted is so gratifying and I know that it will brighten your days as you wait for the arrival of spring.
Plan a Spring Project
What ever way you like to be creative, lean into that craft with all the spring inspiration! The key to this one is planning it, and then actually doing it. I am planning to crochet a springy blanket. I have all of the yarn in some beautiful colorways that are perfect for spring!
Some ideas include sew a breezy skirt or blouse, paint a floral water, embroider a springy picture, or DIY a doormat.
Declutter at least 1 space
Spring cleaning is a thing for a reason! This is the perfect time to let go of some clutter and to step into the new season with a fresh space! Decluttering every area of your life may feel intimating, so choose one area to declutter. After you finish with this space and you are feeling motivated, move onto another area!
Here are a few ideas of spaces you can declutter:
- Kitchen cabinets
- Catch-all drawer (we all have one!)
Bake something fresh and light
With the arrival of spring, the start of fresh fruits and vegetables being available also comes. Bake something that is light and fresh that yields towards the warm days ahead!
Here are some of the recipes that are on my list of things to bake this spring!
Go on a Walk
It may still be cold where you live, but one of the best ways to welcome spring is to enjoy nature’s transition to the season. Even if it is still chilly outside, bundle up and enjoy the fresh air and the newly growing things.
Even though this is such a simple act, going on a walk is one of the most effective mood boosters after a long winter.
Have a Closet Refresh
I am all about having a timeless wardrobe filled with pieces that can be worn through the seasons, year after year. However after you declutter your wardrobe, you may find that you need some pieces for spring.
This is something that I did a couple of weeks ago, as I realized I was needing some staple items. I made a short list and began searching online. Looking at new clothes for spring, has really increased my anticipation for the warm weather! There is nothing quite like wearing a few new items for the new season!
I hope you found some inspiration today on how to welcome spring! If you did any of these activities be sure to let me know below in the comments or on Instagram!
